Simon Says Stamp | We Wish You A Merry Christmas Poinsettia Card

Like this card? Pin it and save for later

I am very much inspired by non-traditional Christmas colors lately, and aqua being one of my favorites colors made its way onto this simple Christmas card.

I used my regular size MISTI and stamped the Holiday background in Simon’s embossing ink onto a panel of white cardstock. I added white embossing powder and heat set it to melt. I used two colors of Simon’s dye ink to add color and did a resist ink blending technique. I started with High Dive at the bottom and Spring Rain at the top. I’m not going to lie, this background was heavily inspired by Laura Bassen.

I am also in love with the new Poinsettia stamp set. They are like snowflakes, you can never have too many! I stamped it in Simon’s Intense Black ink onto X-press It Copic Blending paper and colored using several Copic markers. There are coordinating dies available and I used them to cut my images out.

I foam mounted the poinsettia and the leaves onto the ink blended panel which I had previously adhered onto an A2 top folding card base.

I didn’t want to add any additional sentiment as the background says it all. I did however add a few small and medium clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh as little dew drops to finish this card.

    1. Looks wonderful, so much a masculine card, the background stamp also reminded me of wood stumps.

    1. Love how you colored this card, I am always looking for masculine cards!!

    1. I like the more nontraditional color of the card with the poinsettia and I know my brother would enjoy receiving a more masculine card.

    1. Great cards. The non-traditional and the masculine cards are very inspiring. Thanks!

    1. I love that you chose blue for the background! Beautiful! (That gold plate in the photo os gorgeous too!)

    1. Yana – As always you have inspired me. This weekend, I worked on my holiday cards and the excitement meter was of the charts. Beautiful work! Thanks for all you do!

    1. The poinsettia card is so lovely. I like the script under the believe die cut.

    1. I love the way your background turned out on this card. It stamp DOES look like slices of wood. It could work for onion slices too! Ha…..I can just see a hamburger with all the fixings on top of the background. Your colors are beautiful.

    1. It’s still the 24th here so hope I’m not too late. Love both of these cards!

    1. So love the background stamp of words. The way the circles are colored and highlighted in the deer card look like cut pieces of a tree trunck..definitely makes the card look outdoorsy.
