Cut Simple Poinsettia Frame from watercolor paper - it makes the beautiful details stand out.  Cut the four additional petals.  Cut an extra petal from the framed poinsettia - it's the one on the right.  

Brilliance inks are great for coloring diecuts - they're easy to blend, then dry quickly.  I've used Rocket Red Gold and a bit of Sunflower Yellow for the petals.  Pearlescent Thyme colors the leaves and stem.  Use a Post-it to mask the edges where the leaves and stem are attached to the frame.  

Attach the large extra petal from the frame die first, then add the other petals.  Use a small amount of glue at the bottom of the petals and crease them gently before assembling the poinsettia.  

Stamp the greeting with Rocket Red Gold.

Attach everything to a top-folded A-2 card of smooth white cardstock.

Add yellow gem stickers.
