Poinsettia Wreath

Today's Project was really fun to make and decorate. For this I used the New Wonder Embossing Crystals that Justin & Gordon from Be Creative, launched on Hochanda during the Birthday week. I also used the Winter Die from Leonie along with the Poinsettia dies from Sue Wilson.

The heart shaped wreath was already made. I made  a lot of wreaths last year using the prunings from my grapevines but this one was ready made, so I had the fun part of decorating it. I started by cutting out the Winter die. I had already covered the card I was using with a wonder sheet. I peeled off the backing sheet and coated using the 'Celebration Blue' Wonder Embossing Crystals.

Next, I covered another piece of card with a Wonder Sheet, then I cut out a selection of poinsettias, using dies from Sue Wilson.

At the same time I cut out some foliage. I used 'Celebration Red' and 'Carnelian' Wonder Crystals to colour the poinsettias. Then 'Verdite Green' and 'Pistachio' to emboss the leaves.

I shaped all of the elements by wrapping them around a marker pen. This way the Crystals wont crack as they are really easy to manipulate. I layered  the flowers using Collall 3D glue gel and placed around the wreath using a hot glue gun. I then added the 'Winter' to the right side of the wreath and added the foliage in the same way. To finish the project I added a gold satin bow and it was ready to hang.

Thank you so much for visiting today. I hope you have enjoyed the step by step that I have shared and the finished project. I hope that you will join me again very soon. Take care and Happy Crafting. xx
