Festive Friday Challenge #25 - Stampin' Up! Baroque Motifs

Here is another Festive Friday Challenge creation.....this time it is a sketch challenge....here is the sketch.

Originally I was thinking "ornament punch", "baubles" etc.... but then I thought of doing those wonderful poinsettia flowers using the 5 Petal Punch. I'd seen them on various blogs before and thought they looked so lovely! 

For my poinsettia flower I used the Red Glimmer Paper....SO SPARKLY!! I consulted my Stampin' Up! Colour Coach and had a look at the various 'red' cards and the combination that jumped right out at me was the "Riding Hood Red" card which suggested Riding Hood Red-Lucky Limeade-Perfect Plum....how gorgeous!! What do you think?.....

I used my new Simply Scored Scoring Tool to creat a nice border around my vanilla cardstock and inked up the "Seasons Greetings" from Curly Cute by rocking & rolling in Perfect Plum and Riding Hood Red....I think the effect is quite lovely. I lightly sponged the vanilla card with Perfect Plum, concentrating on the bottom a bit more than the sides and put a gorgeous little silver glimmer brad through my flower. I then mounted the main panel onto a piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock.     

Hope you enjoy my card and please play along with us at Festive Friday Challenges!! :)

  1. Hi Alison! I will admit that I haven't even thought of Christmas cards (feels like I'm still recovering from last year!) The Festive Friday Challenge is a great idea to get into gear for Christmas...it seems to come around so quickly every year doesn't it!? Lovely card - as always! Love your sparkly pointsettia!
