Poinsettia Wreath Wishes

Hello fellow stampers.  Have you started making your Christmas cards? I’m about done, but there’s always room for making more. I’m sure you are busy in the U.S. thinking about Thanksgiving preparations. Here, in Canada, we celebrated our Thanksgiving. It is a special time of year for me because my daughter was born on Thanksgiving Day. Her birthday doesn’t always fall on Thanksgiving Day because our Thanksgiving Day fluctuates.

Put aside your Thanksgiving plans for now, let’s focus on Christmas for a moment.  Using Poinsettia Wreath Wishes, set of 7, I created numerous cards and am showing three of my cards here.

Steps to Making the Wreath

  • Using brown ink stamp your wreath onto a lightly coloured wood paper or a light coloured cardstock of your choice
  • Choose your sentiment and line it up on your stamped out wreath.
  • Using an embossing buddy run over the area made for a sentiment
  • Emboss using gold embossing powder
  • Stamp out a second image on white cardstock if you are only making one or two cards.  If you make more, take the stamp off your block or Misti and ink up just the area of the poinsettia and hand press onto white cardstock.  Repeat as necessary
  • Using a circular die, cut out your wreath
  • Colour your hand-stamped poinsettia and cut along the edges so you are left with just a poinsettia
  • Adhere coloured and cut poinsettia over top of the originally stamped image.  I adhered my coloured poinsettia with a pop dot
  • Add pearls to the centre of the flower, and greenery around the flower too
  • Embellish your card as desired

these are gorgeous wreaths, love all the papers you have used with them and the pretty colored poinsettias, your bows to top them off are a great touch!! I haven’t counted my cards I have made to see if I have enough yet but I will keep trying to make more.

Beautiful cards, Bethie! I really should make multiples, especially since I’m finding it harder to create due to my physical limits. One-of-a-kind got so into my head that I never even think about it. I think it’s nice your daughter’s birthday is around a holiday. Our Katy was born 3 days after July 4th, so we always had a party. Once she left and has lived on her own, she’s always busy or tripping then, though, lol. XOX
