Christmas Poinsettias on a Triple Diamond Point Card

Kia ora Koutou

I have another Christmas card to share with you today that I have made for a challenge in a Facebook Group I belong to. The challenge was to use Susan’s Garden poinsettia flowers in a project. I have had the original Susan’s Garden Poinsettia dies from when Susan was with Sizzix and have never used them as I did not have all the right products to make them. Now this challenge has got me to make the poinsettia and yes I do have all the right tools and equipment now.

My project

I have made the base card using the instructions for the Triple Diamond Point Cards from YouTube here: and decorated it with the new Heartfelt Creations Holiday Ornament paper collection and gold cardstock. One diamond point has a small decorative border from the Pink Fresh Studio Stitched Scallop Squares die.

I die cut the basket from the Susan’s Garden Gathering Basket dies out of Portabello cardstock and inked the basket with some brown inks to really show the texture of the basket. This was added to the bottom right of the card.

I have made the poinsettia, Bee Blossom flowers and leaves out of Susan’s Garden specialty papers which have been coloured with Copic markers. This paper is new to me and it was interesting to use but I am happy with the results. I have added Lemon Chiffon and Heart of Gold Prills to the stamens in the centre of the poinsettia and yellow pollen to the ends of the stamens in the Bee Blossom These were adhered to the basket and card as shown. I painted the poinsettia with clear gloss gel medium and finished with some clear Wink of Stella for a subtle shine. The holly and ivy sprays were die cut out of green cardstock. I painted the holly leaves with clear gloss gel medium and then added Red Berry Nuvo Drops to the berries and when dry I have added them around the flowers and leaves.

I have dyed some small styrofoam balls with green alcohol ink and adhered them over the the lighter green leaves and added some spots to them with a fine tip black marker.

To finish I have heat embossed in gold the sentiments from the Heartfelt Creations Christmas Holly Accents Cling stamp and die cut with the coordinating die. I then die cut another two plain dies and stacked the dies together with the embossed sentiment on top and adhered it to the centre diamond. I added some holly leaves and berries to the corner of this point.

I then added gold pearls to the front of the card.

For the inside of the card I have heat embossed the sentiment from the Starry Holiday Greetings in gold on white cardstock and die cut it with the coordinating die. This was adhered to the inside of the card.
