So many have been making pretty cards with that poinsettia die from Spellbinders. I started checking into maybe purchasing one but kept holding back since the only time I'd use it is at Christmas...and what else can you do with a poinsettia die, except make a poinsettia! (I'm sure some one will come up with something else to do with the die, but I just can't think of anything right now)
So, being the "cheap-o" that I am, I went on a search for a poinsettia that was just the right size. Since I live in a very small town, the only places you could find this type of thing are at Walmart or the Dollar Store.
Ah...the Dollar Store - I can always find all kinds of junk in there to come home with! They had these very tiny flower pots with poinsettia's sticking out of them and some little gold balls on a stick. Sounds tacky and trust me, they really are! However, it was just the right size I needed.
I disassembled the entire pot of poinsettias and started from scratch with all the pieces. After putting it together I sponged Bravo Burgundy on the edges of the leaves and then used a glitter pen to kind of highlight them. The sentiment (SU) was embossed in gold.
A very CAS card and there were enough flowers in that tacky little pot to make about six or eight cards.
I'll enter this in the challenges at Mark's Finest Papers (fall or winter theme), Crimbo Crackers (Christmas/Anything Goes), and Clearly I Stamp (color challenge).
