Poinsettia Wreath


For my Cheery Lynn Designs post today, I was originally going to make a red and white poinsettia wreath but liked the look of the all white so much, I saved the red for another project.  I began by punching out 6 white card stock flowers with my Poinsettia 2 die.  Using my embossing mat and stylus tool, I dry embossed the back side of the petals to give them a bit of curl.  I used dimensionals between each of the petal layers. 


Look at how beautiful these flowers are in the closeup above.  I add some Holly Leaves and Pine Branches to fill in the wreath.  Finished size is 6" square.

I love your white poinsettias Sandy. I hardly gave this die a second look, but now that I've seen how beautiful your card is, I will look at it again. Your poinsettias are really lovely, and I'm so glad I saw your card!
