Christmas Cheer with White Poinsettias

 Hi there!  Happy Thursday!  The weekend is almost here and the weather forecast is calling for snow.  Today I've got another Christmas card using the Papertey Ink Painted Poinsettias stamp set. I've enjoyed using this set to create a variety of cards with different colors and layouts.  So far I've created cards with stamped red, fuchsia and pink poinsettias so today I thought, why not white.  This card has more of a modern feel to it with the white poinsettias and clean color blocks.  I used a white card base and stamped my sentiment along the bottom in black ink, then added a horizontal strip of simply chartreuse and a thinner strip of limeade ice.  Overlapping the green strips of cardstock, I added a rectangle of tropical teal which I sponged with tropical teal ink in the center to make the white poinsettias pop a little more.  Then I added my die cut and stamped poinsettia flowers layering one set with foam adhesive and my leaves.  I used limeade ice ink stamped off for the shadows on the flowers and simply chartreuse for the veins and centers which I added lime green glitter to.
I created a set of two of these cards which I'm selling in my Etsy shop along with other cards and goodies which you can find HERE.
