Poinsettia Cluster . . .

 Hello all! I apologize. . have to dash out of town very quickly for work so I am posting just the center of my card so not to miss my day. I have used the Cottage Cutz Ornate Poinsettia die. This die is great on its own as a ornate doily type cutout. . .but even better when cut up and layered.
Here I have broken down the layers of my finished poinsettia. Cut the die as is, one cut with green card stock ( I used a sage green here). Than cut again with burgundy card stock. Cut all the holly and berries off the burgundy three cluster poinsettia card stock. ( you should only have the three Poinsettias). There are three dots on the die that are to be done in yellow card stock for the centers of the poinsettias, at this point glue the small and medium dot behind the small and medium poinsettia. Glue the three flower cluster on top of the green card stock. With two pieces of burgundy  2 1/2" x 2 1/2" card stock, cut two large flowers. Glue the two large burgundy poinsettias together with the large yellow center glue between them (Oreo style). Pop dot the large poinsettia onto the large poinsettia/leaves base.  (the reason you double the single large poinsettia is for strength). I highlighted the poinsettia in #G94 Red Copic and the holly and vines in R46 Green Copic Pen. I added Sakura clear star pen for glimmer and last added red crystals as berries.

When I return I will get it mounted to a card. . but I just wanted to get you started. This group of Poinsettias will mack a very elegant card.  . . off I go. . till next week.

Thank You   Barry
