Poinsettia cards in non-traditional colors

I love these Poinsettia dies! Today I'm showing you a few non-traditional holiday colors and fewer greetings on the front (but big greetings inside!)

This one has a layer of Seaside Spray 4 x 5 1/4 and 2 top layers - a Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5 and a layer of the vellum also 3 3/4 x 5. 

The whisper white layer really helps the vellum to keep the white snowy look. 
You'll see that I added in silver foil die cuts (the dies have a scoring aspect so the leaves look textured).

I add the wider silver ribbon along with the blue gems.

Here are the dies (I confess, I bought only the dies, not the stamps!)
I love how the dies layer. 

Below is the Stampin up version in more traditional colors. 

I wanted to show you a close up of the leaves, ribbon, gems and vellum

I created 2 looks.  The left is also Seaside Spray but no Whisper White layer.
So the vellum shows but in a different look.
These cards are great vertical or horizontal.

A closer look side-by-side so you can see the difference with the white layer.
Do you have a preference?

Here are a few more photos.
This one shows the vertical greeting using the Holly set, stamped in Seaside.

This is a vertical greeting using the really big greeting stamps with Peace, Joy, and Bright

And finally... wow, these leaves are really pretty and it's surprising how quickly it is to create cards.

These stamps and dies are part of the Aug - Dec Mini Stampin Up catalog. We'll find out if any sets and dies will carry... usually not much carries over and they retired on Jan 2nd. If you love these dies I wouldn't wait... I can imagine many people will scour eBay or other sites next year looking for a retired set!!

My online shop is always open, just click on the cart (top right of this site) and by using the host code, I can promise you a nice gift will come to you in the mail!

Happy stamping, happy holidays
