Here's my "To Die For" project:


If you are a regular visitor to my blog, you will know that I do not own a lot of dies, but I wanted to branch out.  I found this gorgeous poinsettia die from Memory Box at my LSS.  I knew I needed it :)  My favorite poinsettia's are white with a little bit of pink, so I decided to make one of those.


I cut out the Poinsettia's with my Big Shot and inked the edges in pink.  The green leaves are also inked.  I cut the centre out of SU brushed gold and held it all together with a gold brad.  I tried them on two different papers embossed with Cuttlebug folders.   The sentiment is from my absolute favorite of Mary's "Classic Christmas"  I love every sentiment in this set!  You can buy your own set HERE.

Saw your card over on MIM and thought I'd stop by to say hi. Your card is gorgeous! From the simplicity of the design, the choice of white on white and that absolutely beautiful pink poinsettia flower, everything just works so well together. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

This is BEAUTIFUL!!! It inspired me to try something. I used the Imagine Snow Angel cartridge and printed the poinsettia in layers and used that on a white background with a Darice embossing folder....I LOVE how it turned out!! Of course I didn't get the pink look because it prints out more salmon color. Thanks for your inspiration! You have such elegant ideas!!!
