Merry Monday Poinsettia Greetings

Again, Lesley has a great sketch for Merry Monday!


I had just got this poinsettia die that I'd been wanting for at least a year.  DH says if you've wanted something that long, you probably should get it.  He didn't have to tell me twice!  So guess what I used for that little circle?


And what a perfect use for some snippets of that pretty decorative paper I've been enjoying. So over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop I go.

And I also want to honor Shadow's Mom (Lee-Anne) who is the Featured Stamper at SCS this week.  She did a beautiful punched poinsettia card last year.  Congratulations, Lee-Anne! Enjoy your week.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Teams cards.  I've had a sneak peek and they are gorgeous!

Wow! What a beautiful card, Bonnie. I bought that poinsettia die last night and didn't use it until this year. I do love it. Yours was perfect for the circle.

LeAnne said...

Gorgeousness! That little scallop you cut out at the bottom of the embossed mat is ingenious! And so is the poinsettia! I thought for a moment that you made it yourself...well, you know what I mean! BEAUTIFUL!

Lesley said...

I love this elegant card Bonnie! The poinsettia looks so pretty in white with the gold accents! I have this die too, need to dust it off and get it cutting some paper!

Wow Bonnie, this really is breathtakingly beautiful. Another Klassy Kard :) Hugs, Di xx

Beautiful, elegant card, Bonnie! I love that you did a white poinsetta, and not the typical red :o)

Marisa said...

Love you take on the sketch, Bonnie! The papers are fabulous and the red and white just pops :)

Bonnie, everything about this is gorgeous!!! I LOVE IT!!!
I keep saying I'm not going to get that die - and then yet again, I want it so bad! You may have just convinced me to take the plunge and do it now!
SO PRETTY!

THIS is a gorgeous card, Bonnie! Did you trim the Apothecary mat by hand? And what did you use for the bottom scallop edge? Thanks for sharing your handiwork! :)

Beautiful and elegant Bonnie, and the poinsettia is lovely.

Ok, this is probably a dumb question but how did you layer the image from the Ap0thecary Accents Die? I have seen others do this but can't for the life of me figure out how to do it. Thanks LuAnn

Amanda said...

That certainly is a beautiful die cut poinsettia and I agree if you have wanted something for over 6 months then it should be the law that you can get it. hugs, Amanda x

So very elegant Bonnie! I'm loving all that white and the DSP you've used is stunning against the white background! That poinsettia is so cute, I might have to buy that die myself!
