Poinsetta Card for Saturday's Project

I am not posting a new sale this Monday since we are starting to ship all of the
Glue Glider Orders today. But as always, you can order any time. The
products I carry are listed on the left side of my blog under "Items I Sell Category".

This Poinsettia Card was designed for Saturday's Card Get-Together.
The girls wanted to used some of the new Martha Stewart Loop punches,
the Copic Markers and the Fluer De Lis Pendant Punch from Spellbinders.
So, I combine several things on the card. They really enjoyed it.
You can read the directions below.

I started with a 6x6 Neenah White card and cut a piece of green cardstock at 5.5 and used the new Martha Stewart Loop punch on the corners. Then I cut a 3.25x5 piece of of red card stock and punch the corners with the Loop punch and then punch all around the paper with the Loop Edger punch.

I used the Fluer De Lis Pendant from Spellbinders to cut out the white pendant.
One thing that I have found using these intricant designs is you MUST use a lighter weight paper (about 65# weight) and also use a piece of wax paper between the die and the paper.
Your pendant will come out of the die much easier and not tear.

I stamped two Poinsettias with Versa Mark Ink and then sprinkled red embossing powder and embossed the flowers. I cut it out and then colored it using my Copic markers. Yellow Flower Soft was added to the center of one of the flowers for interest. Then I cut into the petals and curled them a little. I glued the first flower down and then the 2nd flower was placed over and to the side of the bottom flower and popped up with some dimensionals.
