Potted Poinsettia Card

Mum and I had a crafty play with my Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettia stamp and die sets, last Saturday; here's what I made, a shaped pot plant card.
 I cut a plant pot shape into a 6x6 card blank, it has a top fold and little card hinges inside to stop it opening too far.  I covered the blank with some gorgeous First Edition Gilded Winter paper that has a subtle snowflake design on, cut an extra pot rim for dimension, inked all the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, and added a length of the most beautiful Hobby Craft glittery lace just under the pot rim.  A tag made with a Papermania stamp and inked to match finishes the pot.
The flowers were made, as mentioned above, with Heartfelt Creations Sparkling Poinsettia stamp and die sets.  I used cherry red pearl card for the flower heads, Amarillo pearl paper for the stamens, and Emerald card for the foliage, all from Anna Marie Designs, and I shaped all the blooms with my Susan's Garden Sizzix flower shaping tool kit.
