Merry - Altered art-

 Hi  there!
It is starting to feel and look a lot like Christmas, and what better way to celebrate the beginning of the season than to share cut files! For the next 12 days, JustNick Studio will be giving a cut file a day for free!  So, let's get started!

Today's free cut file is "Build a Poinsetta", and it is the perfect cut file to create beautiful layouts and cards, but how about a decor piece for your home, well...

Every few years we change the color of the Christmas tree decorations, and this year our daughter decided the colors: blush, white and blue-gray.   The new colors mean that our Christmas decorations also have to be revamped a bit, so i decided to create this piece to for our home.

 I pulled a Jillibean embroidery hoop and painted to match our wood pieces.  While the paint dried, i used today's free cut file, "Build a Poinsetta" to cut the pieces for the flowers from papers that matched the tones of the tree ornaments.  A bit of Vicki Boutin Art Crayon helps to add the shading to the petals, while a bone folder helped to create the movement of the flowers and leaves.  To finish each flower, I added a few french knots to the center of each flower.

To add the sentiment to the hoop, i decided to pull the  Merry and Bright cut file and used only the "merry" word of it to create the stitched sentiment on the hoop.

To assemble the piece, i added some small branches created using a soon-to-be-released "Holiday Boughs" cut file, and then glued all the pieces to the hoop.  I added a piece of ribbon to the top of the hoop, so that the piece can also be hung from the tree or around our home.  Just love how this turned out!!!
