Watch this video to learn how to shape the sparkling poinsettia.

Of the flower pieces from the Sparkling Poinsettia stamps and dies, you'll need ten small, five medium, and two large. Stamp them with the black ink and die cut them out. Color them with Lady Bug ink and then a light overlay of Love Letter ink, and shape them using the flower shaping tools. Before gluing the flowers together, add a little metallic White Pearl to the flower edges for a frosted look. After they dry and are assembled as per the picture, add 3 drops of glue to the centers and douse them in gold glitter.

Die cut four detailed corners from the Cut Mat Create 2B die in the green patterned paper from the Sparkling Poinsettia Paper Collecton. You will also need two 2.75" by 3.75" rectangles and two 1.75" by 2.75" rectangles from the same paper using the Cut Mat Create 1A dies. Flip over the two smaller rectangles so the white side is showing. Stamp the pet's name on one and a Christmas greeting on the other.

Start with the background paper from the Sparkling Poinsettia Paper Collection. Glue the photograph in the center of the page, just touching the poinsettias on both the top and the bottom, and glue the four die cut corners to the photograph's corners. Next adhere the small die cut and stamped rectangles to the larger die cut green rectangles as shown in the picture. Use pop dots on the backs of the green rectangles when you place them on the page. Two of the small flowers are glued on the left rectangle and another two use pop dots and are set slightly offset from the right rectangle. Place the remaining six flowers to finish this piece!
