Monochromoatic Winterhaven Poinsettia

Here's another card that was inspired by an old issue of Holiday Cards & More (Volume 7) by PaperCraft.

The inspiration piece had several layered snowflakes from pink polka dot paper in the middle, finished off with a button and twine. I went for a simplified version, using only one stamped and fussy-cut poinsettia ('Tis the season stamp set) from the latest SOA Winterhaven collection by Catherine Pooler Designs. Before stamping my poinsettia using CP ink in Rockin' Red, I blended some It's a girl ink onto my white cardstock to create a softer look. The sentiment is from a different stamp set (Here we come a-caroling) from the same SOA collection and stamped in Unicorn white pigment ink. The lines were added using a ruler and a white Pilot pen. I popped up my poinsettia using foam tape.
