Poinsettia Cross and Candles!

Good morning, Tutti friends!

Vicki here...Today is my last post as a Tutti Design Team member.  I've made the decision to step down after almost a year of being with Tutti Designs.   It's been a pleasure working with their fabulous die cuts and I will continue to promote and use their products in my crafting.

With that being said, on to more Christmas inspiration using Tutti Designs Poinsettia Cross, Poinsettia Candles, Twig Wreath, Dotted Nesting Ovals, Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles, and Snowglobe Expressions.  I've created a card and gift card to inspire you!

This A2 size card with white cardstock base has layers of red metallic between white cut with Dotted Nesting Ovals.  The Poinsettia Cross of gold foil is inlaid with red metallic.   The sentiment "Peace" was cut from red and gold using the Snowglobe Expressions set.

I cut the Poinsettia Cross from gold foil and red metallic paper keeping the red cross intact and removing the negative pieces from the gold.  I laid the red cross over the gold and used my micro tweezers to push the red pieces into place on the gold.  This proved to be a much easier technique than adding the negative pieces already removed from the red metallic.

Here's a close up of the completed Poinsettia Cross.

And, a close up of the sentiment, "Peace".  The Snowglobe Expressions Set is one of my favorite of all.  I love the selection of sentiment words!

Next up is this gift card using the Poinsettia Candles and Twig Wreath.  The card base of white cardstock is layered with green metallic and white cut using the Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles.  I topped the white circle with a green metallic Twig Wreath as matting for the ivory Poinsettia Candles.  The flower centers are bronze micro beads.  The green bow at the flower base is also part of the Twig Wreath set.

I don't know about you, but when I use micro beads, I am always chasing them no matter what I pour them into when adding adhesive.  So, this time, I decided to try a coffee filter!  I have a stack of them in my stash from years ago when I used them for making flowers and other mixed media projects.  It worked great!  And, after I was finished, the creases in the filter made it easy to pour the excess beads back into the container.
