Wish Card *Pion Design*

This is one of MANY Christmas cards I have made so far (just can't reveal most of them yet, stay tuned!). I'm not a card maker but... I have been inspired by so many artists this year and by the beautiful Pion Design papers (Waiting for Santa 2 collection) and also their vintage image sheets. I really got into making cards for this holiday season. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch to create the look of a die cut on the cream paper.

Here is a close-up of my handmade poinsettia. It is a variation of the technique used in my wild roses - using 2 punched out 6-petal daisy layers (instead of using a rounded tip 5-petal flower punch). I also extra pinched the pointed tips and glued in various pearl beads in the middle. All of my flower tutorials can be found in the right sidebar of this blog. Use them as a guide and play with whatever dies or punches you have to make your own creations!

Here is the gorgeous TCR palette #86 I used as inspiration for this project. I just love this masculine palette!

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon with so much more to reveal!

Oh wow, that poinsettia is dreamy...I've been to the Poinsettia farm here in Southern California and some of the new color flowers are just heavenly. Love that MS punch, might have to add that one to my collection.
