My Poinsettia's

Christmas is associated with so many things - Santa Claus, Snowmen, Christmas trees and so on. But for me there is only one thing that totally embodies Christmas -  the Poinsettia. That bright red leafy flower that only blooms at this time of year really makes me feel all Christmassy. So is it any wonder I found myself making a whole bunch of poinsettia cards this year? Check them out!
For this one, I cut out the poinsettial petals and then embossed them to give them more texture. Then I just layered them over each other to create pretty accent embellishments.

My next creation was to make the card look like the flower itself. Made a round card and just added petals out of pattern paper until it looked truly BOUNTIFUL!

And for my third, I decided to reverse it all. Made the card background red and the flowers and the flowers a kind of goldish beige. 

Entering these into the following challenges:

Tata for now...

  4. Like you Sunehra, I think poinsettias are very symbolic of Christmas, they are such beautiful flowers and the one on your pretty card looks absolutely beautiful with the gold embossed edges.
