My boss is a big UK fan and I was given a UK scarf to use for inspiration in creating a Christmas card for her. It’s a good thing I’m such a pack rat when it comes to SU! retired items; I still have a generous stash of Brilliant Blue cardstock and inks to work with. 🙂 I do wish SU! would come up with a poinsettia die — my “poinsettia” is made by punching several petals with the Blossom Petals Builder Punch and then I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score each petal down the center. To assemble the flower, I punched a 1-1/4″ circle out of scrap cardstock and used a hot glue gun to attach each petal to the circle, working around and around until the flower seemed full enough. The antique brad in the center provided a nice, elegant finish to the flower.
