The past few days I have been working on more Christmas cards and was inspired to use my pop up die from Karen Burniston. I bought this die back in May to make Mothers Day cards. What Mom wouldn't love a beautiful card filled with flowers? Well, for Christmas I thought Poinsettia!
This versatile die comes with everything you need to make a pop up flower pot. There are flower dies included and a leaf die as well. But when it comes to flowers, I really love the Heartfelt Creations flower stamps and dies. For this card I used the Sparkling Poinsettia stamp and die set. I recommend checking out her instructional video on how to use the pop up flower pot die. Click here for the video.
When it comes to colouring, I know a lot of card makers prefer to use Copic markers or some other sort of blending marker. But I prefer to use Prismacolour Premier pencil crayons. These are a softer pencil crayon and allows you to blend colours beautifully. I find that they give you more control in your technique and they don't bleed like a marker does.
The paper I used was a combination of Bazzill Basics and Echo Park Paper Co. I just loved the Echo Park Christmas paper. It's so bright and cheerful. Perfect for any card! Check out Karens other amazing dies here. I just ordered two more dies and I can't wait to use them. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
