Bright and Cheery


Hi there!

I’m so excited to share the new Paper Poinsettia release from Graciellie Design! My card today features one of several gorgeous poinsettias – including two images that work perfectly together for a layered look (I’ll be using those on another project – so be sure to come back and check it out)!

I resized and printed the images the way I wanted them and colored them with beautiful pinks, reds, and oranges. I added a bit of shimmer to the petals with Wink of Stella and set them aside to dry while I worked on my background. Because the flowers turned out to be so gloriously vivid, I decided to go with a subtle background and just add a bit of texture with a few snowflakes. This white-on-white texture is my favorite and a go-to for me when I really want the images to “pop”!
I arranged my flowers, using foam tape to pop up the larger one, and then added my sentiment (also using foam tape). A few drip drops, and I think this card looks amazing! What do you think? Hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

designer & content creator

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
