I had some leftover poinsettias from my two previous card and wanted to use them up. I decided to arrangement in a circle wreath. I had to stamp additional leaves for filler around the flowers.
I decided to use a scalloped rectangle behind the images and dry embossed it with the Spellbinders Holly & Flourish Embossing Folder.
I decided to use a scalloped circle for the sentiment and went through my Christmas stamps sets to find a sentiment that would fit in the middle of the poinsettia wreath. It was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed gold. Low loft foam tape was added to the back of the circle sentiment, which was adhered in the center of the scalloped rectangle with low loft foam tape.
The large poinsettias were adhered in place with low loft foam tape and the small poinsettias were laid in place to determine placement of the leaves and berries, which were adhered with liquid glue. The small poinsettias were also adhered with the same glue.
Yellow rhinestones were added to the center of the poinsettias. There were some open places in the arrangement and I pulled out some red rhinestones to add as fillers. The last embellishment was to add white glossy nuvo crystal drops as berries to some of the leaves.
A red quarter sheet of cardstock was adhered to a top folding cardbase and the focal image panel was adhered in place with liquid glue.
