New Memory Box Poinsettia Ribbon card…




It’s time for the Memory Box Blog Blitz this week.  Click over and comment for chances to win dies from the new 2015 Holiday/Christmas release!

Today I’m using the NEW Poinsettia Ribbon die.  I die cut it in Metallic Gold and Red card-stock and mounted the gold ribbon piece with mounting squares behind the ribbon part and then mounting squares behind each of the red poinsettia petals. A gorgeous die!  I love it!




I did the ink smooshing watercolor technique for the background in three Distress ink colors, Abandoned Coral, Barn Red and Fired Brick.  A few spatters of gold ink and some pearls to glam it up a little.

I mounted the panel to gold card-stock and then to a 5.5 inch square white card base, that I stamped the Merry Christmas Combo stamp on, and embossed in gold embossing powder.

  1. Wowza!! That is stunning! Your background is amazing! It almost looks like snow around the edges! Seriously gorgeous work my friend!! 🙂

  2. OH, so pretty! Love the beautiful gold and red together. Ugh…this is another die that I MUST have!!! Just pre-ordered a few the other day 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  3. WOW! Absolutely love your treatment of this die, Pam! I’ve clipped a pic of it for my Inspiration File. Am ordering this die ASAP – the flower is perfect and the ribbon is outa sight. I hope they make a lot more ribbon dies as I think a variety of these could be very useful for hundreds of layouts, package toppers, or anything that needs some trimming.

  4. You certainly made the “WOW” factor on this card…awesome artwork Pam! Love the smooshing water technique for the background very pretty. Can’t wait to get the new poinsettia ribbon die. A flood of ideas just came to mind. Thanks for sharing Pam, I love all your cards!

  5. Love the poinsettia die. Unusual that it is attached to the flower. Really is pretty. The background goes so well with the focal point. Love it

    Have a lovely day/Gunilla
