Pretty Poinsettia Shadow Box Cards

I absolutely love Poinsettia of all colors and sizes, perhaps, because I have a December birthday. When I first saw the Poinsettia Place Suite in our Stampin' Up! 2020 Holiday Catalog, I just knew I had to have it. I love the Poinsettia Petal with matching Poinsettia Dies that cut AND emboss the veins in the poinsettia petals. The Designer Series Paper is gorgeous and the Beaded Pearls so elegant. These products are featured in the Facebook Live video replay below in which I demonstrate how to make a Shadow Box Card. Making this Fun Fold Card is actually quite a simple process, and the Shadow Box cards fits nicely in a standard medium envelope as it is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" when lying flat.

Here are two very different card both made with the Poinsettia Place Suite. Mixing and matching products makes for endless possibilities in creating pretty poinsettia cards for the holidays.

The Red Velvet poinsettia pairs beautifully with the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper used on the front of this Shadow Box. The design of the Poinsettia Place DSP on the inside of this Shadow Box card matches the design on the Plush Poinsettia Paper on the front of the card. So many beautiful details coordinating on this gorgeous card.

I've changed quite a few elements in the 2nd poinsettia Shadow Box card I made. The card base is made of Old Olive card stock on front and Whisper White for the back/inside layer. I moved the Poinsettia Place DSP to the front of the card, changed out the sentiment for a larger one and embellished the card front with Holiday Rhinestones in gold. The poinsettia is made of Red Foil Paper, uses the Beaded Pearl for its center, and has loops of Old Olive Ribbon with a sparkly edge behind it.

The Poinsettia Dies not only cut out poinsettia petals. They also emboss veins in the petals.

Boho Indigo is BEAUTIFUL!

Finally, I took some time to create with the Boho Indigo Product Medley. What a beautiful assortment of products from the stamp set and dies to the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, many sheets of cut outs in Very Vanilla and metallic gold, two ribbons, and felt flower embellishments. It truly is a great value at $70. This is the first card I made with the Boho Indigo products. I'll definitely be making many more.

Triple Layer Stamping with Holly & Berries

I'm excited to share with you the Triple Layer Stamping Technique. I demonstrated this technique in a recent Facebook Live. The cards I show in my video feature a traditional theme with the holly & berries stamp from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set, a Stampin' Up! favorite returning for a second holiday season. I hope you'll watch my video and learn this wonderful stamping technique then apply it to your own hand stamped cards. Cutting dimensions and a complete supply list can be found below.

I love holly & berries. They're such a traditional part of Christmas and holiday decor. I knew the holly & berries stamp from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set would be perfect for making a traditional Christmas card with the Triple Layer Stamping Technique. I love these card. How about you?

Embossing Makes Cards Extraordinary!

Embossing takes your handmade cards to an extraordinary level. Whether you emboss with embossing folders or embossing powders & heat tool, your cards are sure to impress. You can do both of these techniques on all sorts of papers including card stock, vellum, and foil paper. In the video demonstration below, I'll show you "dry" embossing with the Evergreen Forest 3-D Embossing Folder and "heat" embossing with Gold Embossing Powder and Heat Tool. Both of these techniques will help you create extraordinary cards.
