Tutti Designs . . . Candles in the Night

Happy Sunday All!
It's time once again to share a creation I've made for the DT

I'm having so much fun with this July release of holiday dies from the Tutti Designs Store.  And, excited to know that I will should have plenty of holiday cards completed early this year.

TUTTI-138 Shinning Candles

This die can be used in SO MANY
ways but today I chose to bring it 'front & center'
on this picturesque card.

Here are a few steps that were taken in creating today's card inspiration.  I hope you like it.

First I created my 'picture panel' by die cutting an oval then cut another oval of the same size + one size larger to create my outer frame.   By using some clear packing acetate from other crafting products, I was able to create my 'window'.  Double sided tape was used to adhere it to the BACK of my oval cut panel.

Next I created my winter scene with inks & stamps, which I adhered once again to the
BACK of my oval cut window panel.

Using dimensional tape around this panel, adhere it to my white card base.

Now comes the fun with our SHINING CANDLES die cut!

First I die cut it from white card stock.  Then, carefully colored the poinsettia pieces & greenery with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers while it was still in the die ... hence the little white edges.

 After adhering my 'Shining Candles' in front of my winter scene, I started
'reassembling' my poinsettia & greenery.

A few touches of sparkle and my card is ready to mail.

Make sure and check out all the great places to see this new line of dies.

I've been here for a while taking it all in... So gorgeous and with such beautiful detail! Love how you made the snowy image, and great idea to put it behind the acetate. Brilliant use of the die, putting the colored pieces back in. It's all soooo pretty! That die really dresses it up!
