Heartfelt Creations - Christmas Poinsettia Basket

 Merry Christmas!!!

Wishing you all the timeless treasures of Christmas,

the warmth of home, the love of family

and the company of good friends.

I've made a pretty Christmas poinsettia basket for you today.

Instructions: Card size is 6 x 6”. Score and fold 12 x 6” white pearl metallic cardstock at 6” on the long side to create tent fold card base. Cut luxe silver cardstock x2 to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4” and cut white pearl metallic cardstock x2 to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2”. Adhere one of the white pearl pieces to one of the silver pieces and adhere to the inside of the card using a tape runner. Stamp the ‘Happy Holidays’ Sentiment from the Holiday Star Collection on this piece using Distress Oxide Wilted Violet ink. Stamp the bow from the Wicker Basket Cling Stamp set on the white pearl cardstock using the same ink, diecut using the coordinating die and adhere to the inside of the card over the sentiment. Emboss the second white pearl piece using an embossing folder (I chose one that reminded me of snow), adhere to the second silver piece and adhere to the card front using a tape runner. 

Stamp the wicker basket, handle and bow from the Wicker Basket Cling Stamp set, the blooms from the Basket Blooms Cling Stamp set, the snowflakes from the Large Holiday Star Cling Stamp set and the leaves from the Holly Berry Cling Stamp set on Luxe Silver Cardstock using VersaMark ink, cover with WOW Metallic Silver Sparkle Embossing Glitter and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Diecut using the coordinating dies. Diecut extra baskets and blooms x4 from white cardstock and adhere under the stamped basket and blooms for dimension. Adhere the blooms to the basket then adhere the handle. Adhere the basket and blooms to the card front using dries clear adhesive and dimensional squares. 

Using the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters Cling Stamp set, stamp the small poinsettias and holly leaves on white pearl metallic cardstock using VersaMark, cover with Wow Silver Sparkle Embossing Glitter and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Color the poinsettias with Distress Oxide Wilted Violet ink, buff with a paper towel and diecut the flowers and leaves with the coordinating dies. Place face down in the 3D Poinsettia Shaping Mold spritz with water and run through the diecutting Machine. Press down the centers of the poinsettias and holly and set aside to dry. Once dry, adhere two poinsettia petals to a holly leaf making sure to offset them. Add a little dries clear adhesive to the flower centers and add Silver Gala Glitz. Make twelve of these flowers – eleven for the basket and one for the bottom, next to the basket. Adhere the poinsettias with hot glue as shown. Add a few Holly Berry leaves to the bouquet and adhere the bow off center and at an angle onto the basket. 

Stamp the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from the Holiday Star Cling Stamp set on white pearl metallic cardstock using Distress Oxide Wilted Violet ink and diecut using the Ticket and Tags Die. Adhere to the bouquet using hot glue and dimensional dots.

Adhere two snowflakes to the card front – one at the top left and one on the tag.
