Poinsettia Peace -- for Dies R Us Inspiration Blog

Happy Christmas Eve!  I'm posting today on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog, and I hope this finds you relaxed and ready for the next few exciting days!

I am sharing a card of peace, just in case you need to slow down and remember to take a breath!

This card uses a Sue Wilson die, sone paper piecing, some foil, and some glitter:

First,  a picture of the supplies (they will be linked below):

The main focal point of the card uses Creative Expressions Craft dies by Sue Wilson, the Festive Collection - Poinsettia Flower Square.  It is currently out of stock, but there are many other similar dies in the Dies R Us Store.

I started by cutting the die out of white card stock, using Stick It Adhesive Sheets behind the poinsettia to make paper piecing easier:

Then, I cut just the inside layer with red, and added that in. It adhered because of the Stick It.

Next, I added the leaves and the gold pearls.

There were some open spaces, so I added white glitter to those.  I also used  a die cut for the Elizabeth Craft Winter Wishes set to cut out the word "Peace".

In this pic, you can see all the die cuts, and the glitter.  The gold square was cut out with a Spellbinders die.

Here are the products used from the Dies R Us Store:

I'll leave you with one more view of my peaceful poinsettia card, and I'll wish you the merriest of Christmases!
