Stampin’ Up! is known for their product coordination. They certainly accomplished that goal with the Poinsettia Place Suite. This suite has a collection that includes a lovely stamp/die bundle. Not only that, you’ll enjoy gorgeous designer series papers, flocked vellum, beaded pearls, and yummy sheer ribbon.
Want it all? I sure did! That’s why, when I ordered the Poinsettia Place Suite, I entered one item number to fill my shopping cart. Talk about quick and easy ordering. So happy that Stampin’ Up! started providing that ordering option. In today’s card, I challenged myself to incorporate some of each element of the suite into one card.
Because I decided on a Real Red card base, that gorgeous Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper really pops. Not only do I love the look, but the feel is pretty impressive.
I’ll bet you’ll want multiples of the Poinsettia Place DSP. The pages are filled with poinsettias, pine cones and holly. By creating a Bumble Bee watercolor wash, on the stitched circle, I was able to ground the die cut poinsettia and all the pretties.
I couldn’t bring myself to waste one smidge of the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper, so I added a leftover strip to the inside of my card. Watch how quick and easy this elegant card comes together.
