Honestly I thought my first real crafting post was going to be about one of the Halloween crafts I am currently working. Unfortunately, none are ready at the moment and the Just Us Girls #51 - Color Challenge closes tonight and is taking precedence. Just Us Girls is a weekly card making challenge that I have participated in the past. This week's challenge is to use the colors red, green and black in your card. Here is my entry.
Petal and Leaf Templates from Mainly Flowers
Merry Christmas stamp from Warm Holiday Wishes by Inkadinkado
Red, White & Black Card Stock
Printed Paper was from scraps
Tag, Black Ribbon, Red Seed Beads, Black & Red ink pad, sponge dabber, red Copic marker, glue dots, Elmer's Craft Glue and embossing pen.
To make the poinsettia, I used the used the poinsettia template from the Petal and Leaf Template to print out 12 leaves on red cardstock. I cut out the leaves, embossed the back with my embossing pen and sponged on red ink. Then I glued down the first layer of 6 leaves down on a scrap of paper. The next layer a curled each leaf before I glued it down with glue dots. Then I made a circle with the Elmer's glue in the center of the flower and carefully poured the seed beads on the glue.
