Poinsettia Party Cardmaking Workshop

I just love the embossed poinsettia so much that I made an entire cardmaking workshop around it. You will need to following CTMH cartridges to complete this project:
  • Art Philosophy
  • Artiste
  • Artbooking
  • Don't hate me but I also used the Storybook cartridge for the Branch Corner pieces.  You can substitute this image with a flourish from Art Philosophy it's included in the project.  
You will also need the following cardstock:
  • New England Ivy = NEI (QTY 2)
  • Kraft (QTY 1)
  • Cranberry (QTY 2)
  • Flaxen (QTY 1)
  • Colonial White (QTY 1)
  • White Daisy (QTY 2)
Additional cardstock for card bases:
  • White Daisy (QTY 3)
  • Colonial White (QTY 1)
The entire ready to go file will take you approximately 35 minutes to cut.  This is an advance project, it is packed full of images to create all 7 beautiful cards. The CDS file were separated by card otherwise the project file is simply to large to cut.

Please see my tutorial on the embossed Poinsettia technique here. Recommended work flow, since most of these cards are white, start with the Poinsettia, the technique includes Black ink. I don't know about you but I always get ink on my white cards.
