ID: MC Oct/19 - Side Fold Coloring Poinsettia - Blue Christmas" card
size: 5"w x 7"H 

Created: October 10, 2019

I came across a gorgeously colored green poinsettia and had to imitate it done by Laura Jane using The Ton "Poinsettia Close Up" background stamp. You can see her post HERE. I don't have this particular stamp from 2017, so I hand drew my interpretation of the image. I have since made it in 4 other colors beside the green one...

Scored and folded my white cardstock to create my side fold structure. Used an embossing folder Signature Collection "Regal Swirls". Hit the high points with Distress "Faded Jeans"

Since I initially had drawn my poinsettia in September, I had scanned it and now printed it off on white cardstock. Outlined the printed image with a black Zig writer. Colored with Prisma colored pencils in blues. I love the linear coloring method. Trimmed down and adhered to the embossed front. Added Liquid Pearls "Buttercup" dots to the flower center.

I'm finally doing more of my own calligraphy... sentiment done in what I call "Fickle". I saw some of this lettering style done on a Waltzing Matilda stamp and created the rest of the alphabet... Used a black Zig Writer on practice paper, scanned, resized and printed on vellum. Cut into a rectangle the width of the card and adhered with Glossy Accents.


On the inside:

Again my own calligraphy with a Zig 2.0 pen, scanned, printed on white cardstock, die cut with an oval die set, sponged with a Distress blue pad and adhered to inside. 

Used Tim's 3D cut/emboss Holly folder. Hit the high points with the Versafine "Toffee" pad and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder.
