Spellbinders | Poinsettia Bloom

Hello there, okay, so I have an obsession with blue flowers! There is just something about them that I think looks elegant. I do love red poinsettias but for this card, I decided to go blue! I am using the Spellbinders Poinsettia Bloom Etched Dies from Yana's new De-Light-Ful Christmas Collection over at Spellbinders.

I started off by die cutting the Spellbinders Poinsettia Blooms Etched Dies (just the inside layer, not the frame piece) from white cardstock, twice. Using Copic Markers, I coloured the poinsettia in blue shades - B39, B18, B06 & B04 on one of the layers. I then die cut the same die from Altenew Brushed Silver Metallic Cardstock, popped out the inside pieces and adhered it over the one I coloured. 

I then adhered this to the second white layer, for some added dimension. I added scoring lines to a 3.5" x 4.75" panel of white cardstock (difficult to see in the photos but does add something in real-life!) and adhered it to a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. The poinsettia was adhered on top using Bearly Art Glue. I cut off the excess off the sides using Spellbinders Shears (these are super sharp!). 

I took the sentiment from the Spellbinders A Little Merry Christmas Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set and foiled it on to white cardstock using Spellbinders Silver Foil. It was die cut out and then adhered on to another die cut piece (for added dimension) before adhering to the card. To finish, I embellished with a few Spellbinders Silver Mix Color Essentials Gems

I almost used gold for the poinsettia. I think it does work well with blue but I am definitely team silver and I think it gave more of a frostier look to the card too! Thank you so much for stopping by today. I apologise for sharing another Christmas card in July, but my next one will be a "normal" one! Have a great day! 


  1. Stunning! I love the poinsettias in blue and the silver is so gorgeous with it. Your colouring on the flowers is beautiful and I love the design with it sitting up at the top. It definitely has a frosty look too!
