Poinsettia Crisscross Pocket Card

In a previous post, I shared my card design for a recent Shoebox Swap that I attended.  Today, one of the cards from another card maker is being highlighted.  It is a poinsettia crisscross pocket card and absolutely gorgeous!  Linda Edwards, at Crafty Heron Designs, prepared the materials so each attendee could create the card.  Not only did Linda present this card design but she also hosted the event.  It was a delightful day and all in attendance had a wonderful time.Crisscross card

Isn’t the card beautiful? 

It was simple to cut the poinsettia flower from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper using the coordinating Poinsettia Dies.  I just love it when images from designer series papers have dies that coordinate!  To showcase the poinsettia, the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper provides the perfect base.  The crisscross card is cut 1/4″ smaller and mounted onto a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock.  The combination of Whisper White and Very Vanilla makes an elegant card.  Notice how one side of the crisscross is topped with the designer series paper and the other is texture embossed.  This adds an extra WOW element.  For the sentiment card, stamp with Versamark  and heat emboss using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Then, layer atop a piece of gold foil paper.  To create a pull for the card interior, punch a slit using the Label Me Fancy Punch and thread ribbon though slit.
