Memory Box Poinsettia Blooms and Holly Collage Christmas card….

Hi everyone! I’ve been excited to try out these new dies! So happy with how festive this turned out.

First I die cut a quarter piece of 8.5 x 11 heavy white card-stock with the largest Wrapped Stitch Rectangles die. I love that it’s the size of an A2 card.

Then I die cut the Holly Collage in the rectangle, more toward the upper left than the center because I planned to place the new Brush Merry Christmas sentiment die toward the bottom right corner.  It is die cut in American Crafts Gold Glitter card-stock.

Then I embossed the Holly Collage in a piece of Memory Box green note-card by running it through the Big Shot with the tan embossing mat, a few 65# card weight shims with the Multi Purpose Platform set up for embossing.  I have videos on embossing under the videos tab under the blog header.

The embossing showed up nicely but I wanted it to be even more so…shows up better for blog posting!  ;D  So I went over the veins in the leaves with a Copic marker.

I die cut Poinsettia Blooms from a Cranberry note card, the little berry branches and center from shiny gold card-stock.  I love these little branches!

I went over the lines in the Poinsettia petals with a Copic maker too.

I love how this poinsettia looks after a little lifting of the petals.  I just glued it to the card in the center of each layer with Tombow Mono Multi glue, it tacks up quick with just the right amount of wiggle room!  One thing I’ve learned over the years of using this liquid glue… do you feel a tip coming?! lol  Don’t stand the glue up…leave it laying down ALL the time.  Also keep the tip cleaned off.  I wipe the end with my fingers every time I use it. The glue just rubs off your finger tips.  I don’t put the lid right back on if I’m going to use it again soon. If the tip is clean, the tip will stay open.  yay!

ok – I’ll shut up and get back to making some more festive cards!  I need to send some too… I am so good about making but terrible about sending. ugh.

Thanks for stopping by and keep on creating!

  1. Wow!! That one kind of takes your breath away! So so pretty! The inlaid and embossed leaves in the background really make the red poinsettia pop! I love the way you added the detail with the markers too! Beautiful work!!

  2. Beautiful!! Thanks for giving us names of dies and emboss and all the products you used. I usually have to search for products used on cards. 👍❣️🌹

  3. Beautiful card !!!! Love the new poinsettia die. Funny—-now you are giving the glue tip that you pounded in our heads for years. I never use that glue unless I think of you !!!

  4. Oh Pam this is such a beautiful and elegant card – that poinsettia die is assembled to perfection…going to use your card as a guide for assembly!

  5. Okay… this is gorgeous and amazing and I want it all! My favorite part of the many favorite parts is the gold whatchamacallits spiking out around the poinsettia. Also, that sparkly gold Merry Christmas. Well, gee, the holly collage is brilliant under the poinsettia, and it’s all framed up so nicely on the stitched card base. Just had to mention every detail. Did I leave anything out? Fantastic, Pam!

  6. Beautiful card as always! 😃 You do wonders with Memory Box dies! I love what you come up with! Blog is on back burner for a bit. Had a lot of design work come in. 😳 Hopefully soon I’ll be able to get it going!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
