Poinsettia for Christmas

At one of the cardmaking events hosted by Stampin' Up demonstrators Dar Peterson and Luci Kirschbaum, we made a poinsettia card, which was designed by Luci.  

I decided to make a similar card with some modifications for my Christmas card-giving stash.  I used the same color scheme, but added an additional mat layer of gold glitter paper, which I carried over for my poinsettia stamens as well.  I added more large and small petals to my poinsettia with the goal of a bigger and fuller flower.  I also used the Curvy Corner punch on each of the card front corners, which allowed the gold glitter paper to peek through the three eyelet holes.

My poinsettia card will travel all the way to Texas to bring Christmas wishes to one of my husband's many relatives.  Take a peek below at my version of Luci's original lovely design.  I think I'm pretty happy with the results along with my interior creation and verse to compliment the outside design.
