Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! Isn’t this a GORGEOUS poinsettia cake?
No surprise that Mary and my cards were VERY similar since we just HAD to use Poinsettia Petals Bundle on our cards!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White is added on top.
- Four 1 x 2-1/2 strips of Whisper White cardstock were added across the bottom half of the Whisper White layer.
- A 1/4 x 5-1/4 piece of Brushed Metallic Gold was added across to hide the seams.
- Three leaves were embossed/cut with the Poinsettia Dies from Shaded Spruce cardstock, then sponged with Shaded Spruce Ink and added to the front.
- Two sprigs were cut with the Dies from Real Red cardstock and adhere on top of the leaves.
- The Vanilla/Gold Metallic Ribbon was looped on each end, then adhered on the front.
- The three sizes of poinsettia petals were embossed/cut with the Poinsettia Dies, then adhered together, the petals slightly bent. It was added to the front over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A Beaded Pearl was added to the center of the Poinsettia.
There is just SO much texture and sparkle on this card! I love it! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
