Farm House Inspired Christmas Card Featuring Poinsettias

Looking for a classic Christmas Card idea? Today’s project features raised wood paneling and soft classic colors that are giving us farmhouse vibes.

Today’s card was created by our designer, Dominique, and we are loving the look of this fun Christmas slimline card. Her use of the buildable poinsettia set agains this white planked backdrop rally pops. Follow along as she shows us how to create this farm house inspired Christmas card featuring poinsettias.

  • First, I stated out die cutting all my needed pieces. I used the following die sets; 5515-12D Merry Christmas w/Shadow Die, 5514-07D Buildable Poinsettia Die, 5708-02D Wood Planks Die, and 5326D Slimline Nested Stitch (one of the larger rectangle and two of the second largest rectangle). I also cut out a few extra flowers and planks just in case. (Tip: make sure you save the dot of your “i” in a good location where it will not get lost)
  • Next, arrange the plank dies on one of the second to largest rectangle cutouts. Once you’re happy with the arrangement, add some foam tape to the backs of each one and adhere those down to the larger rectangle. Cut off any hang over pieces.
  • Now lets move on to our coloring. Starting with the poinsettia petals, I used one of my blender brushes from the Detail Blender Brushes 4-Pack. I used all of the shades from Color Fuse Set #4. Once I colored all the petals, I moved on to coloring the Merry Christmas and the poinsettia leaves. I used Juniper from Color Fuse Set #11.
  • Once all of my coloring was complete, I moved on to curving my petals. I did this by using a foam mat and the end of my blending brush. I gently pressed the brush end into the petals until they curved up.
  • Now you can start glueing your florials together. I made each flower unique with the smaller to larger petals going from light to dark OR from dark to light. I also used some of the smaller layers together for smaller flowers and all three layers to create larger flowers. I also added the center pieces to each flower. Once you are done with your flowers, you can glue down the Merry Christmas to the shadow cut out.
  • Next we are going to add a little sparkle! Using some gold shimmer mist, spray your wood plank background, flowers, petals, and Merry Christmas. Make sure to do this in a splatter box so that you don’t sparkle your entire work surface.
  • Once dry you can start putting your card together. I popped the Merry Christmas up on some foam tape. The flowers and petals I glued down. I then glued the wood plank background to the larger rectangle die and I tapped the larger die to my card base. The card base is 7×8 1/2 scored at 3 1/2.
  • The last left over rectangle is for the inside of the card. If you have any flowers left, you can use them to decorate the inside of the card or the envelope.

WOW! The sparkle and the depth of this card are really making us excited to get our holiday craft on! The way she raised those planks really adds so much to the overall look of this card. We hope you love this project as much as we do. Pin it on Pinterest for future inspiration. Let us know if you create a similar card and tag us on Instagram. Happy Crafting!
