Peaceful Poinsettia and the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge
Blended Seasons...Hate to See You Go!

Peaceful Poinsettia Half Pocket card

Ready for  another sneak peek using the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle?  This bundle is in the upcoming Holiday catalog that will be debuting on September 5th.   I bought the bundle because i was curious about the dies and thought the samples in the catalog were really interesting.  Now that I have played with the bundle a bit, I can say it is one of my favorites! 


I had a few half pocket card bases ( you can read about half pocket cards here and here's a link to a post that will help you make your own half pockets) left over from another project.  Aren't the poinsettias so pretty?  They are super easy to cut out using the Detailed Poinsettia Thinlit Dies.

Here's how you cut out the detailed outline.  Nestle the detailed die and run through the Big Shot.  


Here's the detailed outline.


To get the solid flower, remove the detailed die and run it through the Big Shot.


Layer the detailed outline over the solid flower shape.  


Attaching the outline image on to the solid image is easy if you attach the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the card stock before you run it through the Big Shot.


Be sure to check out my Facebook page ( I will have another version of this card posted later in the morning.

Love it. Just changed the measurements a bit to work with A4 cardstock. Also did a full pocket (based on your Cake Soiree card) with the Floral Frost Suite.
