Sapphire Poinsettia Christmas
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  I am sharing a non-traditional monochromatic color Christmas card today made with several products from the 2020 Christmas collection.

Started by stamping the poinsettia from Spirit of Christmas on Memory Box watercolor paper with light blue Archival ink.  Did no-line watercoloring using Chipped Sapphire distress ink.  Added dots to the center with a white gel pen before die cutting it out with the coordinating die.


Next, ink smooshed Faded Jeans distress oxide ink (DOx) onto more watercolor paper then die cut with the Forest Pine Branch and Mistletoe Swags from it.  On a smaller piece of watercolor paper, ink smooshed Stormy Sky DOx then die cut from it with the berries in the Mistletoe Bundle die set.  


A Stitched Rectangle Trimmings frame was then die cut from silver foil paper in the Polished Foil Pad.  Heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set with white embossing powder onto a dark blue panel.  Assembled the card, popping the poinsettia up with foam tape.  Added shading to the berries with a dark blue Polychromos pencil to finish.

And that‘s it it for me.  Thank you for joining me.  Enjoy your day.
