Plant Festive Florals With These Christmas Scrapbook Borders and DIY Card

Many homes are decorated during Christmastime — glinting lights, tall pine trees accented with tinsel and ornaments, full wreaths adorning front doors, garlands on stairwells and the “Flower of the Holy Night,” poinsettias! Poinsettias (which are actually indigenous to Mexico!) manage to bring warmth and yuletide spirit in every space it festively flourishes within thanks to its eye-catching hues, from pure white to creamy yellow, pink and marbled shades, and of course, the iconic and traditional bright red. If you’re ready to plant some Christmas cheer this year, then take a look at these Christmas scrapbook borders and DIY card featuring the Poinsettia Edge Border Maker Cartridge.

To create these borders and card, you will need:

Wonderful Time Border

Green and red horizontal Christmas-themed scrapbook border.

Step 1: Cut a 12″ x 3-1/4″ strip of holly green dotted lines designer paper for the base. Using the 12-inch Trimmer and the Wave Blade, cut a 12″ x 2-3/4″ strip of Canary Solid Cardstock and adhere on the base.

Step 2: Cut a 12″ x 2-1/2″ strip of cardinal red wash tonal paper and adhere on the border. Cut two 2″ x 2-1/2″ pieces of light green wash tonal paper and one 2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of darker green wash tonal paper. Adhere on the border as shown.

Step 3: Cut a 12″ x 2-3/8″ strip of White Solid Cardstock. Using the Poinsettia Edge Border Maker Cartridge, punch both long sides of the strip. (Tip: Adhere sticky notes along the opposite edge from the one you’re punching to widen the strip so it holds beneath the magnetic arm of the Border Maker holder.) Mount on the border.

Step 4: Adhere the red poinsettias laser-cut border on top. Add stickers.

Step 3: Cut a 5/8″ x 12″ strip of holly tiles designer paper. Adhere next to the gold line. Using a ruler, draw another gold line on the other side of the holly strip with the Metallic Gold Dual-Tip Pen. Still using the bold tip, dot the middles of the cranberry poinsettias.
