Merry Christmas from everyone at Imagine Crafts.

When I was asked to make something for this special day, I wanted my project to be truly elegant. The Silver and Navy against the white just pops! The poinsettia with the swirled Pico Embellished highlights is both beautiful and unusual. I love making cards and gifts that match and I’m pretty sure the recipient of this set is going to love it!

Supplies:

  • Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko:  StazOn Midnight Blue, Versamark, White & Silver  embossing powders, Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink, irRESISTible Pico embellisher Wedding Dress & Teal Zeal, Vertigo Rattlesnake, Craft Mat
  • Memory Box:  Poinsettia Bloom Trio die
  • My Mind’s Eye: Enamel dots
  • Craftwell:  eBosser
  • May Arts:  Ribbon and Silver cord
  • Miscellaneous:  vellum, white & navy cardstock, heat gun, toothpick

2.  Cut white card stock 4 x 5.25 inches, stamp poinsettias with StazOn Midnight Blue ink. Cut vellum 2 x 6 inches. Stamp and heat emboss sentiment. Adhere Vellum to back of white panel, trim ends. Adhere this panel to navy card stock trimmed slightly larger. Adhere this whole panel with foam adhesive to the card base.

3. Die cut Poinsettia Trio from white cardstock. On the largest Poinsettia, add a few drops of irRESISTible Pico Teal Zeal to center of petals, add Pico Wedding Dress around the Teal Zeal. With a toothpick, start swirling the two colors together. Repeat for each petal, then let dry.

The ornament is a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store sized to 4 inches. The center was cut out from the ornament– you’ll need to cut two of these for this project.

Stencil the negative of the Poinsettia die with Delicata Silvery Shimmer. Heat emboss the edges with Silver embossing powder.

Vertigo was used for the center of the ornament.

Same technique used for the card was also used for this Poinsettia embellishment.

Attach ribbon and cord to hang ornament.
