Embossed Poinsettia Card

I get so excited when I learn a new techniques, I just need to share it. I've added a few pictures to show you how to make this embossed Poinsettia flower.


If you'd like to see the full technique you can watch my tutorial video below. I will show you step by step how to create a 3D looking Poinsettia using cardstock, an embossing tool and a push pad.

First you need to cut your pieces using the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  You can find the Poinsettia shape on page 80 and the swing card on page 52.

This Poinsettia is 2 3/4", you will need to cut three (3) pieces
  • one 2 3/4"
  • one 2 1/4"
  • one 1 3/4"
This project was created with the Cricut Design Space. I've included the complete ready to go project file here.

Love that you show the cuts in Design Space. Do you have a video that explains how to make the front piece for the swing card?

Thanks!

The front piece for the swing card is an actual Cricut piece from the Artiste cartridge. You can find the base card on page 52. When cutting from the DS file if you add your stylus the card and score line will cut perfectly. Hope is answers your question.

Thanks for answering so quick. Actually I was wondering how you created the glitter piece for the front? It fits on the front so perfect but that cut wasn't on the cartridge?

Thanks!

I modified the base card by using the slice feature in Design Space. I did all the hard work for you :-)

I saw this card on FB but the photo there didn't do it justice. It is absolutely gorgeous! Wow, wow, WOW! Amazing work and you should be so proud of the artwork that you produce. Just stunning :)
