Peace on Earth

Hello Friends!
Today  I'm sharing another fun creation using dies from the fabulous Tutti Designs Store.  
My Christmas cards will be done in no time this year thanks to all the fabulous holiday dies available at the Tutti Designs Store.  Today I've created a quick and easy card that says a lot for what is needed in our world today.

The dies I've used today are

 Here's how this card came together:

After die cutting my beautiful focus die from a 4.5" x 6.5" the Paper Studio Glitter paper, I decided I wanted to use the same glitter paper for my matting.  


TIP:  So as not to waste an entire sheet behind my focus die cut, I used the largest Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Rectangle Die and die cut a panel out of the center.  Now I have another beautiful panel to use on another quick holiday card creation.

To create even more holiday shimmer, I've used a pearlized white card stock as my matting behind my die cut.
  Lastly, by cutting the next to smallest Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Square die from the same glitter paper, and then cutting each square from corner to corner, I have created these beautiful corner embellishments.   It all ties together so beautifully and was easy peasy!  

Here's another look at the finished card!
VIOLA!


 Please be sure to pop over to the Tutti Designs Store and check out all of the fabulous dies in this latest release.  And, of course, you'll want to browse through the store to see what other dies you need to have on hand.

Great idea to save your sparkle paper, I have seen others do this but I keep forgetting, like the corners you made with the squares!!

Definitely a good idea on how to conserve the glitter paper, or any kind of paper, really. It's amazing how pretty things look when cut in glitter paper, sigh... I was cutting some ordinary leaves from silver glitter paper yesterday and suddenly they weren't ordinary anymore. Gorgeous die and card, Darlene!
