French Foliage Poinsettia - Create with Connie & Mary #229

I thought I was finished making Christmas cards, but I just couldn't resist one more, expecially when the sketch with Create with Connie & Mary here was calling for a poinsettia flower.  I used the stamp set French Foliage to make the flower.

2012 Create Thursday-009 

I started out by stamping 13 leaves from the French Foliage stamp set using Cherry cobbler ink onto Very Vanilla card stock.  They were embossed with clear embossing powder and cut out.  Each leaf was then placed in a 3/4" circle to which tombo glue had been applied.  Seven (7) leaves were in the bottom row, and six (6) on the top row.  A 3/4" champagne glitter circle was attached to the middle, and a red glimmer brad inserted in the middle of that and  the flower was finished off nicely.
The leaves were also from the same stamp set, but were stamped using Gumball green on Very Vanilla cardstock. After cutting out, they were attached to the bottom of the flower. The Poinsettia was attached to the card using dimensionals.
