Paper Piecing Technique with Poinsettia Petals

Onto Day 2 of Martin Stone’s 30 Day Christmas Card Making Challenge and it’s technique time with the Paper Piecing Technique.

Paper Piecing is a technique which involves using various pieces of cardstock or Designer Series Paper to build an image. This could be a pre-designed image such as a stamp or a new one such as punch art.

I have used the Poinsetta Place Designer Series Paper to do some fussy cutting of the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper. The petals were layered to create a 3D paper pieced poinsettia.

The leaves were coloured in a combination of Old Olive and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends. Combining colours of Blends gives you the opportunity to experiment with shading and achieving a different tone of colour.

I went around the edge of the leaves and flower petals with Early Espresso ink using a sponge dauber to take away the stark white edge.

A flourish die cut from the white felt sheet from the Festive Felt Sheet combo adds some soft leaf detail to the card.


My card has been inspired by the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

Christmas card inspiration is all through September with this challenge so please join me each day to see what I come up with, You can also see all the other cards being made in this challenge by searching #30DayChristmasCardMakingChallenge .
