For today's project, I've created a PINK POINSETTIA CHRISTMAS CARD SET. Who doesn't need a last minute Christmas Card? These were super EASY and QUICK to put together.
So grab a cup of your favorite Christmas Papers, an embossing folder, some metal dies, and your Xyron Adhesive Products and lets get started!
To create this PINK POINSETTIA CHRISTMAS CARD SET, I used the card file from the My Scrap Chick Sunflower Greetings Box - I will have the box portion of the file created shortly -  and the Poinsettia Christmas Card for the flower.  However, you can create a regular sized A2 card and use any Christmas Flower die or cutting file you have available.
After cutting out the pieces for the base of my card, I ran the last layer(white) cut using the Crafter's Companion Luxury Centura Pearl 6x6 Snow White Cardstock thru my Cuttlebug Machine and embossed it with the Crafter's Companion Let It Snow Embossalicious Embossing Folder. I loved the combination effect both these Crafter's Companion products had together. The  Crafter's Companion Luxury Centura Pearl 6x6 Snow White Cardstock has an iridescent look and made the embossed snowflakes shine and stand out.
Then adhered all of the card's layers together using the Teresa Collins Mega Runner by Xyron. I also added a 1.5" V-notched strip of pattern paper from the Crate Paper Bundled Up Collection to each card.
I stamped a sentiment from the My Craft Spot "Christmas Banner Sentiments" Stamp Set on the V-Notched sentiment strip made using the My Craft Spot Ribbon Banners - Straight Metal Dies. The strip was then ran thru the Xyron 1.5" Create A Sticker Machine and layered to the card front.
The Poinsettia Flowers were layered on next. They were cut using the "Precious Pink" Graphic 45 Lights Cardstock by Core'dinations. I gave each a quick sanding using the Core'dinations SandIt Set and inked the edges white. The flower was then layered together using the Xyron 3/16" High Tack Adhesive Dots and Xyron 3/8" High Tack Adhesive Dots. I ran the center piece thru my Xyron 1.5" Create A Sticker Machine, added glitter to it and finished it off with a Gold Pearl. The Poinsettia Flower was then adhered to the card base using Xyron 1/2" Double Sided Tape
I finished off the cards with a few "Tickled Pink" Sequins - available at My Craft Spot - adhered with my Xyron 1.5" Create A Sticker Machine. And now your "Pink Poinsettia Card Set" is COMPLETE!
I hope you are still with me and have ENJOYED my "PINK POINSETTIA CARD SET" + Tutorial. I'd LOVE to see what you come up using some Xyron Products, so be sure to leave me link to your blog.
