Off the Rails Tutorial Christmas Card with Foam Poinsettias - 11th December

Morning everyone and welcome to my Tutorial for 
Today I have a Christmas Card Tutorial for you including how to make my poinsettia flowers from paper foam, otherwise know as Foamiran. Plus a bonus, a video!

YOU WILL NEED
6 X 6 inch card blank, white glitter card, pale blue pearl card, pale green pearl card, snow globe die, Merry Christmas banner/sentiment, pink ink, green ink, brown ink, white foamiran, pine cones, pine bough die, pink stamens, white coiled stamen, pink flower centres, snow globe stamp, foam pads, hot glue, white paint or gesso.
HERE IS HOW
 Die cut lots of foamiran poinsettias in several sizes and ink with pink ink. Don't forget to make a few green ones for the leaves.


 
Take a warm iron and BBQ stick and heat up until flower curls

 It should look like this
 Now start to squish all the flowers between your fingers and roll until they look like the above
 Now take a piece of wire and a few stamens. Fold stamens in half, thread through the wire, make a hole in the flowers and thread through each flower one layer at a time. Use two or three layers whichever you like the best

  
Thread a large pink berry on a wire through the center of the stamens then hot glue just a tiny bit between the layers
You are now ready to assemble your card.
Step 1
Cover the front of the 6 x 6 inch card blank with pearl card
Step 2
Step 3
Cover this with a piece of 5x5 inch glitter card

Cover again with more blue pearl card
