My Home For The Holidays project is a card with the lovely Poinsettia Petals bundle. This set and dies were featured last year in the holiday catalog and I was so glad it carried over to the annual catalog this year.
I made my card with the standard A2 shape/size but just cut the top off a little to reveal the sentiment from the inside. I got the idea from Debbie over at stampsnstuff.org I cut the base in Cherry Cobbler card stock 4 1/4" by 11" then scored at 5 1/2" like always but then cut 1 1/4" off the top flap. For the outside flap, I cut a piece of Old Olive card stock in a 4" square. I also cut a white piece in 3 7/8" square. I ran a piece of the gold ribbon around bedore attaching. I cut and embossed at same time the poinsettias in Cherry Cobbler card stock in three sizes to layer with the Poinsettia dies. I also used the dies to cut the center in gold foil along with the fillers. I then stamped the leaves and the berries in Memento Tuxedo Black ink from the Poinsettia Petals set on white card stock and colored them with the Stampin Blends markers in Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler. They were also cut with the Poinsettia dies.
For the inside, I cut a piece of Old Olive at 4" by 5 1/4" and a piece of basic white at 3 7/8" by 5 1/8". I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals set in Cherry Cobbler ink.
My guests will be making this card next week for my November Christmas card class. Hope they love it!
