Not just for Christmas!

This is a card I made using the Spellbinders Poinsettia dies and the matching stamp set by Heartfelt Creations. I thought it would make an elegant sympathy card, showing that these flowers and leaves can be used for any occasion by changing the colour scheme.

The trellis background was made using the Spellbinders Fancy Lattice die. I pierced the edges of the card using the Creative Expressions Piercing Ruler and a needle tool and sponge mat. I then threaded gold thread through all of the stitches. 

The sentiment was cut out using a die from the Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags One die set.

You could make this card using nice bright colours to make a cheery Birthday card.

Happy crafting!


  1. Hi Tracey pretty card and as you say useful for lots of occasions x

  2. Beautiful card & a great way to get more use out of the poinsettia, very effective in white. That gold threading looks lovely too but must have taken ages!
