Poinsettia Christmas Card

I made this Christmas card using the Bijou version of Jayne Nestorenko's Poinsettia stamp set from Clarity Crafts.

Mask off the front of a 6” x 6” white card blank leaving 3.5cm at the right-hand side. Stamp the pine needles from the Jayne Nestorenko Bijou Poinsettia stamp set multiple times in Pine Needles Distress Oxide to create a border. Remove the masking.
Die cut a topper from Clarity stencil card using the 3” x 4” nested rectangles die and a mat from black card using the corresponding nested rectangles picot die.
Add the Bijou Poinsettia border at the top and the bottom of the topper in Black Soot Distress Archival ink.
Add the Poinsettia stamp into the centre in the same ink.
Colour the images using Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer watercolour pencils picked up from a mix mat with a watercolour brush pen.
Die cut the #2 Doodle Scallop Frame-Its panel from black card. Add the middle layer to the front of the card next to the pine needle panel. Trim the ends.
Mat up the topper and add it to the front of the card.

To finish add one of the Clarity Christmas & Celebrations Words stickers below the topper.
