Two Pretty Poinsettia Die Cut Cards

Happy Sunday crafty friends! I'm so glad you stopped by. Today I am sharing two Christmas cards. Both of them feature the beautiful Poinsettia and Holly Flower Christmas Die and the Merry Christmas Die, both from Cottage Cutz. The Poinsettia is from the new dies in their Christmas Part 1 release. The Merry Christmas is from their new Christmas Part 2 release. Now is the perfect time to pick them up! They are 30% off! That is a terrific savings.

Here is a look at my first card. 


I started by cutting out the beautiful Poinsettia Die Cut from the 1st Christmas Die Release. I covered it with some wet adhesive and then poured some fine, white glitter all over. I set it to dry and then dusted off the excess glitter.

I then used a large 3D glue dot for the middle and cut some little foam squares. This is what I used to adhere the die cut onto the base.

Here you see I adhered the Poinsettia cut to a stitched circle die base I cut from some red cardstock. I adhered that onto a scalloped white circle base. Once it was in place, I used some more wet glue and then adhered some dew drops to the center.


Here's a look at the dew drops I used.

I then used my Nuvo Drops and added some to all the spots on the die cut that were the little little holly berries.




Here's a closer look at the decorated die cut. I love that it has a little lift from the mats.




To finish off the card, I cut the new Merry Christmas sentiment out of some white cardstock. I layered it onto a strip of red cardstock. I adhered both elements to the patterned paper base. From there, I adhered the entire thing onto a black top folding A4 cardstock base.


For the second card, I repeated the same process for the Poinsettia Die Cut. I cut it out of some white cardstock. Glued and glittered it.

I then cut a piece of pink cardstock. I then inked the edges and mounted it onto the Scalloped stitched square base. 
I then added some foam tape to the back side of this mat. 

Here's a photo of the dew drops I used on this card. You can also barely see the Thistle colored stickles glitter glue I used. I dotted all the little holly berry centers.

Here's a closer look at the Merry Christmas die cut. I cut it out of some Green cardstock. I chose not to use the pretty outline - shadow that comes with the die.

Here's a look at my completed card. For the base, I used a piece of patterned paper I created and printed out. I cut it to a 3.75 x 5 size. I mounted all that onto a piece of white cardstock and then the entire thing is attached to the pretty pink card base. The finished card size is a standard A4 top folding card.

I think my two cards turned out super pretty. I hope you like them. You can easily re-create these cards with the help of these wonderful dies!
