Poinsettia from Scratch

I wanted to replicate a pattern on my leggings, but didn’t have the poinsettia punch so I improvised! It’s a bit of a mish-mash, but I think for what I had on hand it came out pretty well. I used a LOT of different framelits and thinlits to get this beautiful Christmas flower, so be sure to check below for all the materials used.

I love finding inspiration for my cards in unexpected places, and I think finding inspiration from a clothing item is so awesome! It’s a color combination that I would have NEVER put together myself, so I’m glad I got out of my comfort bubble to give this a go!

Measurements

Card Base – 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″
Card Mat – 4″ x 5-1/4″
Scrap Pieces – Large enough to cut out assorted pieces

Tranquil Thank You Cards

I really like how this little Tranquil Thank You card turned out! I used the hostess only set Tranquil Tulips along with the Classic Stampin’ Pads Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig. This very simple yet elegant card is the perfect way to say thank you to someone special!
