Red Poinsettia 


Here we are at CAS Christmas with our mid month reminder poinsettia cards. Join Marina of My Perfect Life our Guest Designer for July and the rest of the design team in creating beautiful poinsettia Christmas Cards. Check out the challenge posts for some amazing inspiration.



I fussy cut two poinsettia and layered them to give dimension, then added Viva Decor gold peal pen to the centre and popped it up on some foam dots. I wanted a lots of white space in my background as a contrast to the bright red flower.


I hope you like the card and would love to hear from you.

  1. This is the cult card with poinsettia! I love the great deep color of the flower, and using the same color for sentiment is a great idea. A perfect Christmas card!

  4. Wonderful true intense red - often so hard to achieve in watercolouring! Love the layering of the poinsettia, the matching red sentiment, and just the hint of gold in the centre.
