Sue Wilson's Poinsettia

Hi again, it's Jenny back with you.  And I am utterly loving this set of dies from Sue Wilson.  It's one of  those sets that goes with so many other die collections, stamps and papers.  It's a must have.

Now, if you would like to add the dies from Sue to your collection, you can find them here:

Sue Wilson Die Collections

I have teamed it with quite a few products, I'll do a shopping list for you:

Couture Creations die:           Merry Christmas Die
Cosmic Shimmer Snow set:   Glitter Shimmer Set
Double sided adhesive sheet: Double sided adhesive sheet
Sue Wilson Embossing Folder: Poinsettia embossing folder

This is the card I have made for you today:


Really happy with this card, and it's nice and easy.  First take a sheet of double sided adhesive, and peel one protective layer off and stick it to a piece of paper.  Take the second protective sheet off, and cover it with some of the sprinkles from the Cosmic Shimmer set.  These are all slightly different.  Don't completely cover your adhesive with one pot, instead sprinkle a pinch of each one until you are happy, then cover with the finer glitter.  This will give you a nice varied finish.  

Repeat this, but this time stick your sheet onto a piece of green paper.  When you apply your glitters you will still be able to see the green underneath.

Die cut your poinsettias from your hand made glitter sheet, and the leaves from the green sheet, then cut the outside poinsettias from plain white card and glue together: 




Arn't they pretty.  I love the way they shine.

Now cut the Merry Christmas from white and then green card, and stick together: 


Finally emboss a piece of white card with the lovely poinsettia embossing folder:


To finish the card I simply mat and layered using green and gold card, and added a touch of glitter on my embossed card.
