Make Easy Christmas Cards with the Poinsettia Place Suite
Are you working on your Christmas cards? Perhaps you are starting to browse card ideas for inspiration, either way you are going to love this post as I am sharing with you three easy Christmas cards using the Poinsettia Place Suite from Stampin’ Up!
Are these cards not the cutest?? I love making Christmas cards, and this suite makes it super easy for you to make as many cards as you can imagine..
Also, I am participating on a Blog Hop, with an amazing group of fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world, to bring you lots of inspiration and keep you crafting!
So let’s get started! shall we…
Poinsettia Place Suite – The Possibilities!
As I mentioned I am sharing with you three super easy Christmas Cards using the Poinsettia Place Suite. This suite has a gorgeous designer series paper that you can either fussy cut or use the coordinating dies to get beautiful poinsettias to decorate your Christmas cards.
You could also make your own poinsettias from scratch, using the Poinsettia Petals Bundle (in the picture below) and cardstock. However for the cards in this post I wanted to mainly focus on the designer series paper!!
This suite also has a great vellum specialty paper which has flock! Oh gosh, your cards would look amazing and would have a wow factor using this specialty paper alone! and some of the images in this vellum paper can be cut using the dies as well!!
Honestly I think that Stampin’ Up! is making it easier for us as they continue to coordinate more and more their products, whether it is by color coordination or by coordinating paper and stamp set bundles (dies or punches)!
And finally I wanted to spend a few minutes talking about the pearls in this suite! these are perfect for the centers of the poinsettias! I particularly love them for when I make the poinsettias from scratch with the stamps and dies from the Poinsettia Petals bundle!
What makes it even better is that you can color them using the blends or leave them as they come.. Either way you will love how they finish off your cards! they just add the perfect touch!
I’ll be sharing more cards using this suite in future posts as I have been making so many of cards with this suite alone! so keep an eye for future card ideas on my blog..
The Color Combination
As usual I leaned on the designer series paper to come up with my color combination.. I keep thinking this is the easiest way to pick colors, as you are using what you already have on hand..
This is my step 1 whenever I am making cards, I go over the designer series paper and start choosing which designs I want to use, I see if there are images I want to use as the background or as the focal point. and based on the sheets I pick a color combo.
If you ever struggle with color combinations, give it a try, you will see what a difference this makes!!
At the same time I select the cardstock to use on the cards, that way I am picturing which pattern would go best with the different card bases colors. In my case I selected the Soft Suede as the card base that would go best with the Three Christmas Cards I had in mind.
Sketches and Details
After deciding which colors and what cardstock to use as well as the focal point on my cards, then I come up with a sketch to use for my cards.
In this case, I knew I wanted to use the poinsettias from the designer series paper as the focal point, so I started thinking of sketches that would go well with the poinsettias, specially focusing on the size of the flowers.
In needed to have larges areas to be able to added them.. so you can see the sketches offer enough space on the card to add the poinsettias.
To finish off the cards I added wink of stella on the petals of the poinsettias and added crystal effects on the berries to add even more dimension to the cards.

Anyway, we all learn something new and we all grow when we try something new, and this was the case for me.. 😉
