So I pulled out my Sizzix Thinlits Poinsettia die, which I bought last summer and this is the first time I'm using it.
So I started by making the poinsettia, and I wanted to do it in white. I used a gold pen for the center veins. I was going to use chalk to color the green leaves, but I didn't have any chalk in the right color. So I used Copic marker in YG01. I used a gold pencil to color the center of the flower and then added liquid pearls. I cut all the pieces from a snippet of white paper. Then I used a Spellbinder Nesties die to cut the shape for the sentiment. It is by Inkadinkado. I stamped it with Versamark and embossed it with gold embossing powder. I then added gold pen to the edges.
I had planned to make the card 4 x 5.5 and cut the red paper to that size and used a Sizzix embossing plate to emboss it. But when I went to assemble it, it wasn't big enough. So I cut the green paper for a 5 x 6.5 card. Then when I went to assemble it, there was too much space between the green and the red, so I added the gold paper.
Here's a close up of the poinsettia.
