ID: MC Oct/19 - Side Fold Coloring Poinsettia - Cherish The Season" 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

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. I love the linear coloring method. Trimmed down and adhered to an apple green cardstock and then onto my card front. Added Liquid Pearls "Buttercup" dots to the flower center.

I'm finally doing more of my own calligraphy... Cherish done with a 6.0 Parallel pen and Sumi ink and "the season" with a Zig 2.0 Calligraphy black ink pen on practice paper, scanned, resized and printed on vellum. Die cut with an oval die set ad adhered to front with Glossy Accents..



On the inside:

Again my own calligraphy with the Zig pen, scanned, printed on white cardstock, die cut with an oval die set, sponged with Distress Mowed Lawn" and adhered to inside. 

Used Tim's 3D cut/emboss Holly folder. Hit the high points with the Mowed Lawn pad and colored the berries with a red pen. Adhered to inside.
