Classic Poinsettia by Louise Healy

  1. Fold a 7" x 10" piece of Red cardstock in half to form an A7 card
  2. Cut a 4-3/4" x 6-3/4" piece of the Graphic 45 paper, cut that piece into two pieces, one 3-1/4" x 4-3/4" and one 3-1/2" x 4-3/4", edge with BG72
  3. Adhere the Graphic 45 pieces to the card front using one pattern at the top and the other pattern at the bottom, adhere a 3/4" x 4 3/4" strip of red cardstock across the seam
  4. Cut a 4" x 5" piece of cream cardstock and a matching piece of double sided mounting paper, attach one side of the mounting paper to the cardstock
  5. Pat VersaMark all over the back of the Classic Poinsettia Stencil
  6. Remove the remaining release paper from the double sided mounting paper and carefully place the stencil on the sticky surface with the VersaMark side against the sticky surface, use a piece of release paper to press the stencil in place
  7. Apply the red glitter on the petals, being careful not to get any in the center or on the leaf, rub in place, tap off extra (work in small sections at a time so you can tap off away from areas you want to protect, apply Gold glitter to the center, rub down, tap off extra
  8. For the "green" take a little Lime and mix it with some Teal (I did this to match the paper I was using), apply the mixture to the leaf, rub it in, tap off extra
  9. Turn the glittered image face down on a paper towel and carefully peel the paper off the stencil making sure to keep the stencil flat on the table, apply Crystal glitter to the background, tap off extra, cut out flower
  10. Die cut a 4" x 4" piece of Good Cheer and a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece of red from the Fitted Frames A Set, edge the Good Cheer with BG72, adhere the frames together and add to card front using foam tape
  11. Use Foam Tape to add the Poinsettia image to the frames
  12. Tape the Merry Christmas stencil to a 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Cream cardstock with removable tape
  13. Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Translucent Embossing Paste over the design, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning later
  14. Sprinkle the "M" and "C" with Red Micro Glitter, and the rest of the letters with the Lime/Teal  combined glitter, tap off extra, let paste dry thoroughly
  15. Adhere the dry Merry Christmas to a 1 5/8" x 2 5/* red mat then to the lower right side of the card front
