I have two cards to share with you showcases the new Elegant Poinsettia Die. Link are listed below. 

On my first card I went with a less traditional color scheme with a pale pink and green. I cut the frame for the elegant Poinsettia from white glittered cardstock and then inlayed the die cuts for the flowers and greenery back into the frame. To add the color I simply sprayed white cardstock with Distress Mica Stain in Winterberry, Holly Branch, and Tree Lot. This adds a really pretty sheen and make the card easy to create. 


I framed the card with the Winter Frame Die cut from white glittered cardstock. Behind the frame I just added white cardstock blended with Spun Sugar Oxide Distress Ink. The sentiment is die cut with the Seasons Greetings Script Dies. I cut the die three times and layered the die cuts on top of each other. I added Pearl White Jewels to the center of the flower. 


Here is a more traditional card with the same die. This time I cut the frame of the poinsettia from gold foil and used Peppermint Stick, Holly Branch, and Tree Lot Mica Stain to add the color. I added extra pine branches with the Pine Sprigs Dies cut from a combination of white cardstock and gold foil. 


The sentiment is created with new Christmas Candles Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies. I framed the card with a die in the Nature Essentials Dies. I added the new Metallic Gold Pearls to the center of the poinsettia.
