it’s Tanja here and I would like to show you how to create this Watercolor Christmas Poinsettia Card.
Good morning! ONE of the aspects of scrapbooking and card making that I love is sometimes when you get carried away with something and it’s a good thing! When I began this exploding box I was going to add the sleigh as a regular die cut…..then I had the idea to make it 3D….then I wanted to add the ornaments and the poinsettias …. It took me a bit to figure things out but I am quite happy with the final results.
Today I am sharing how I created the 3D sleigh which you can use to decorate your Christmas projects.

Hello again, friends! It’s Annette Green with Susan’s Garden Team here today with a festive holiday tag. While in the craft store the other day I was inspired by the pretty displays combining vintage pinks and platinum golds. Such a beautiful combination. I’ve combined both of Susan’s poinsettia dies to create a Marble Pink Poinsettia tag. Let me show you the steps so you can try one yourself.
Hello! It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet little card that will stand out from the classic Christmas colours! I have a passion for kraft colours but don’t use them very often. Kraft cardstock always tells me that it wants to be distressed and to have more of a vintage look. Does that work with elegant letterforms? You betcha! I didn’t make this project look too shabby, just a bit distressed around some of the edges with a “hit-and-miss” technique to gild the poinsettia.
Annette Green here today with Susan’s Garden design team to share a fun Halloween decor project. I recently received a whimsical (and tasty) bottle of wine from a good friend who knows how much I LOVE Halloween. We drank it up with our friends, and I immediately washed out the bottle and put it aside for a future project. I’d love to share how I altered it into a fun and festive decor piece for my home during the fall season.
Good Morning. This is Selma today with the last Christmas card for this year. I love creating my Christmas cards with Susan’s Garden Notes Poinsettia and Whitpine Bough & Pine Cone dies and combining them with the new Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Ovals and Fitted Frames 4 Curvy Ovals.
Here are instructions for creating this card:
2 Die cut Susan’s Garden Notes Poinsettia three times to create a full poinsettia. Glue the three large die cuts together, alternating petals. Add as many of the smaller petals as you want to create fullness. Add bracts to the center of the flower. There is a die for the bracts, but I used prills.
3. Die cut Stitched Ovals in both white and green cardstock.
4. Use Susan’s “Let Us Be Grateful” rubber stamp for the sentiment. Use a black marker to color only the first sentence on this stamp. Use black ink to stamp it on the smallest white oval circle.
5. Die cut Fitted Frames 4 Curvy Ovals using green cardstock.
6. Layer ovals as shown, using dimensional tape on back of second largest white oval.
7. Layer Susan’s Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs on lower left corner of oval frame.
8. Add die cuts of the Els van de Burgt Studio Berry Branch, using brown cardstock. Use Viva Red Pearl Pen to create the red berries.
9. Add the poinsettia you created with a dimensional glue dot.
10. Create two pine cones created with Susan’s Garden Notes Whitepine Bough & Pine Cone dies. Add them to the right of the poinsettia.
11. Use the Fitted Frames 1, Lace Rectangles die set to die cut the four white corners to frame the card.
It has been a lot of fun creating Christmas cards with Susan’s dies.
