A Beautiful Poinsettia Punch Card....

The other day while browsing the Stamping Blogs I came across this beautiful card along with an AWESOME stamping blog!!! Her name is "Dawn" and I cased a card she had posted on her Blog that she received from someone,,,, it's the Poinsettia card you can find her blog here:
Dawn is a Stampin' Up Demonstrator with ideas out of this world. So if you need a SU Demonstrator their you go, she's awesome... Please visit and see for yourself and get stamping!! OK here are the things you will need to make this card.

Cardstock color of your choice, I used Real Red and Very Vanilla along with a retired SU paper color I think it was Glorious Green,  I have lots of scraps of. This card is great cause you can use lots of your scrap paper you have!  :)

So here are the supplies you will need: Mine are all from Stampin' UP

-Stampset: Hostess set- Peaceful Season
-Punches:  Bird Punch you will need( 7) green punched birds &( 7 )red punched birds- First adhere the green direct to paper the pop-up the red tails. Note the birds on the card are placed green tails going one way and  the Red Bird  tails on top going the other way, and use dimensionals under the Red Bird Tails and leaves  to pop. And you need (5) red wings only for center-which I sponged with Cherry Cobbler ink and sponge. And (3) yellow for center of flower add with glue.
My VeryVanilla Cardstock panel measures 4 1/8  X 5 6/8 just showing a little Red around corners. I added the gold ribbon on the side to pop.

Hope this helps you making your card. These are too pretty not to make one for yourself. Takes a little time to get all your birds straight they way you want them. But I have OCD so nothing ever looks straight!!!!! smile OK, I'm not a demonstrator so the directions could be a little shotty. But you get it once you start looking at the card and playing around with it.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Nov. 1st already, wow. Today I'm giving blood down at the local church blood drive. GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE TODAY AND WHEN YOU CAN!!!! IT DOESN'T HURT AT ALL IT ONLY GIVES BACK 10-FOLD.
