Poinsettia Christmas

1 Comment

poinsettia-christmas

So there are two ladies at the retirement home that like special cards made for their kids (one has son and family and one has daughter and family). One of the ladies I’m super close to and she loves Poinsettia’s so I always make her sons card with a poinsettia. This year while looking through my Christmas paper and thinking of current sketches I saw this journaling card in the paper pack and thought it might work for sketch #3 of the Dec Card Sketch Challenge. This is what I came up with. I cut the poinsettia from the Wrap It Up Cricut Cartridge.

CHALLENGES:
1) December Card Sketch Challenge – sketch #3 – original sketch – retrosketches #241
2) December Inspirational Card Challenge – theme – Christmas/Winter

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (French Vanilla, Cranapple dark, Rain Forest)
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories (Handmade Holiday Paper Pad)
Accents/Tools: Sizzix framlits dotted rectangles, EK Success 1/16 pop dots

poinsettia-2

I decided since I made the lady’s son a card that I would make her one too since she loves poinsettia’s so much and she is “one of my ladies” from the retirement home! I also made one for a co-worker to give his step-mom for Christmas.
I used the same paper pad that was used for her son’s card but a different design. I made the poinsettia a little smaller and doubled up the green on the bottom.

CHALLENGES:
December Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Favorites Category – I got the ideal from this card.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Cranapple dark, Rain Forest)
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories (Handmade Holiday Paper Pad)
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, Xyron X, Fiskars scallop edge punch, Cricut, Wrap It Up Cricut Cartridge,

poinsettia-music-card

This was for a lady at work’s daughter. She wanted it to be music themed and this is what I came up with. I decided to go with another poinsettia and then I will use this design to make one for my friend next year! I used Cas(e) this sketch #93 as my inspiration.

CHALLENGES:
1) December Inspirational Card Challenge – Theme – Christmas/winter.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Cranapple dark, Rain Forest)
Patterned Paper: Simple Stories (Handmade Holiday Paper Pad)

Poinsettia Garland

Poinsettia Candle

When I saw Sketch #5 for the August Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com I thought the poinsettia garland from Diane’s Daydream Designs would be perfect for this. I had been wanting to use them but hadn’t found the perfect sketch yet till now!! One of the ladies at the retirement home loves poinsettia’s so I made this card for her son. Everything is printed on the white piece of card stock. I then printed a 2nd copy of just the candle/poinsettia piece to cut it out and then pop dotted it on top of the image. That is the only dimension to this card. I adhered the white piece to a red cardstock base and the card was done!

CHALLENGES:

1) August Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Sketch #5 – originally Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #145

2) ABC Christmas ChallengeQ for Quick and Easy

3) Tis’ the Season #23 – Use the photo as inspiration – I took inspiration from the hanging banner…so I have hanging garland

A lady at the retirement home asked for 2 cards for her sons. She requested Poinsettias and this is what I came up with. She loved them!! She picked out this verse and wanted it in both cards.

This card was inspired by the Sketch Category on the November Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. The flowers were the perfect size for the sketch.
