When you are looking to create traditional and elegant Christmas cards, the Poinsettia Place Suite is one you will reach for year after year.
Special touches like the flocked vellum in the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper (#153486), the dazzling Beaded Pearls (#153534), and the elegant Real Red Sheer Ribbon (#153535) make this suite stand out and shine. I also love that the Poinsettia Dies (#153522) have duplicates of several dies. That means when you stamp the layering poinsettia and leaf images from the coordinating Poinsettia Petals stamp set (#153475), you can save time by cutting out two of each at one time. We all love to save time!
From traditional colours to modern, monochrome elegance you'll be amazed at all the different styles you can create with this suite.
Below, I'm sharing a tutorial that combines a bit of rustic charm with elegant gold and embossed accents. I can't wait to see what you'll create with this gorgeous suite!
Poinsettia Petals Rustic Heat Embossed Card

3) Wrap card front twice with Gold Cord from the Wonder of the Seasons Ribbon Combo Pack and tie a bow at the left edge.

5) Stamp one of each of the large and medium 5-point poinsettia images on scrap Merry Merlot cardstock with VersaMark ink. Cover generously with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Tap off excess powder and heat emboss with the Heat tool.
