Two Pretty Poinsettia Cards

Happy Sunday Scrapping Cottage friends! I'm so glad you stopped by. Melinda here with another project. Today I am sharing two pretty cards. Both cardst feature the gorgeous Poinsettia and Holly Flower Christmas Die. It is one of the new dies in the Christmas Part 1 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 that comes with the die.

Here's a closer look at the pretty Poinsettia.

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!
