Bright and Cheery

Graciellie Design | Paper Poinsettias

Hi there!

I’m so excited to share the new Paper Poinsettia release from Graciellie Design! My card today features one of several gorgeous poinsettias – including two images that work perfectly together for a layered look (I’ll be using those on another project – so be sure to come back and check it out)!

I resized and printed the images the way I wanted them and colored them with beautiful pinks, reds, and oranges. I added a bit of shimmer to the petals with Wink of Stella and set them aside to dry while I worked on my background.

Because the flowers turned out to be so gloriously vivid, I decided to go with a subtle background and just add a bit of texture with a few snowflakes. This white-on-white texture is my favorite and a go-to for me when I really want the images to “pop”!

I arranged my flowers, using foam tape to pop up the larger one, and then added my sentiment (also using foam tape). A few drip drops, and I think this card looks amazing! What do you think?

Hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
