Red, Gold, and Green Greetings!

Hello and Happy Holidays!! Jenn here today sharing another Christmas card created using several of the amazing Tutti Designs Dies!
I love the story of "A Christmas Carol" and I just love this older Graphic 45 paper collection.
I used several Tutti Dies in the making:





Other Supplies used:
Xyron tape runner
Glue stick
5 X 7 Kraft card base
Mulberry poinsettia 
Clear embossing ink
Gold embossing powder
paper distressing tool
Red bling flat back stick-ons
Foam adhesive squares

To create this card the following cuts are needed:
For the inside:

Designer paper patterned - 4 3/4 X 6 3/4
Red cardstock - 4 1/4 X 6 1/4
one large dotted nesting rectangle from Kraft cardstock
Smaller dotted nesting rectangle was used to cut the picture from designer paper.
Layer as shown or in any composition you like.

Front of Card:
Designer paper patterned - 4 3/4 X 6 3/4
Add small strips of designer coordinating paper scraps (red and white dotted is shown here)
Cut a large dotted nesting rectangle,large cross stitched nesting circle, large dotted nesting square and medium dotted nesting circle. One of each of these from coordinating designer papers. Layer as shown. Fussy cut sentiment and photo from designer paper and adhere using foam adhesive squares to pop them up.
Cut two of the Fall Flourish from cardstock. Apply a coat of embossing ink and then gold embossing powder and heat set. Adhere to the card and then add the flower on top to hide the ends. Add some flat back bling stick-ons.
I wanted a bit more gold on this card so I brushed the edges with clear embossing ink, dusted with gold embossing powder and heat set.
The edges of my papers, card base, and die cuts were distressed gently for a vintage feel.
I am just amazed at the amount of detail that is achieved with Tutti dies as you can see in the detail photos below.
