Greetings

Hi bloggers!  Christmas is getting close now and I still have lots of cards to share!  I selected a piece of white card and covered it with a piece of sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing paper off and added a Snowflake Background cut in white to it.  I used several polished silk glitters on the remaining adhesive areas.  I used Ice Blue, Canadian Blue, Periwinkle and Sparkle Star glitters randomly all over.  I made a multi-layered frame using the Round Corner Squares cut in white.  I added the frame with mounting foam over the background.  I cut the Greetings sentiment in white and added it to the shadow die cut in white.  I adhered it to the centre of the card with mounting foam.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8"  x  8"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Friend

 Hello crafters!  I cut the Ruffled Edge Christmas Frame die in black to use as the base for the card.  Next I cut the Swirly Scrolls Background in black.  I covered it with a piece of white vellum so you could see the design beneath it but it was subtle.  I cut the Hello Friend die out of both raspberry card and black card.  I shadowed the sentiment with the black die cut then added it to the shadow die cut from the set which I cut in white.  I added it to the card with mounting foam.  Using the Pierced Summer Blossoms die, I made two flowers cut from raspberry card and seated them in opposite corners and added white leaves to them.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 3/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Christmas Greetings

Hello bloggers!  Here is a great card for Christmas and really quick and easy to make!  I cut the Pine Panel from the Holly and Pine Floral Panels set three times into a piece of green card.  I added a sticky adhesive sheet to a piece of white card, then peeled the backing paper off and attached it to the back of the panel card.  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on all the remaining exposed adhesive.  Using the Poinsettia Trio die set, I cut two poinsettias.  I added them to the lower right corner of the card and added pearls to the centres and green leaves as  accents.  I cut the Christmas Greetings sentiment in red, then added it to the shadow die cut in white.  I attached them to the card with foam mounting tape.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  7 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Just Because

Hi bloggers!  I had a dig through my background stash pile and found this pretty aubergine coloured piece to use for today's card. I used Aubergine Dream and Plum Twist Pixie Powders on it. I used the scalloped border from the Decorative Border die set and cut it four times out of white card.  I glued them facing each other on an extra bit of the pixie card.  I added mounting foam to the backs of both of them and added them to the sides of the background piece.  I cut the Noble Just Because out of black and glued it to the middle of the card.  Using the Pierced Layered Flowers, I cut all three sizes in white, then added the matching outline piece cut out of the pixied card.  I added black centres then attached them around the sentiment in opposite corners with white leaf accents.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  9 1/2"  in size.

Birthday Wishes

Hello crafters!  I selected a piece of Pixie Powdered card.  I used Emerald Green, Golden Mint and Pale Olive Pixie Powders on it.  I cut the piece into three sections and matted each of them with a black mat.  I added mounting foam to the sections then added them on to a piece of white card.  I cut the Leafy Rectangle out of both white and green card.  I used the green as a shadow behind the white die cut.  I selected several autumnal card colours then cut the extra leaves out of them.  I glued the leaves under each of the leaves in the die cut, then added the entire die to the shadow die cut in white.  I cut the Birthday Wishes Block Sentiment in white and black.  I used the white base then cut the die again out of the pixied card.  I used that sentiment and shadowed it in black then glued it onto the white base piece.  I added a thin black mat to the whole sentiment block, then added it to the Leafy Rectangle die.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  9 3/4"  in size.

Hello Friend

 Hello crafters!  Clean and simple, this one is! I cut the Swirly Scrolls Background in white and then backed it in white.  I used the Hello Friend sentiment, but to create a pop of colour, I cut the sentiment in Orange, yellow and raspberry card.  I offset each of the sentiments slightly so each colour was showing.  I cut the shadow backing die out of white card and glued the sentiment to it, then attached it to the centre of the card.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x 8 3/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Season's Greetings

 Hello bloggers!  For today's card I started with the Inner Scalloped Rectangles.  I cut one out of white and then used the fall away piece from it for the background.  I embossed it with the Falling Snow embossing folder.  I raised it by adding mounting foam to the back.  I used the Inner Scalloped die cut and backed it with a piece of tan card, then added the embossed background on top.  I used the The Robin Family die set and cut three birds out of tan card.  I used Festive Berries ink on their tummies.  I cut the greenery several times, then added Fluffy Stuff and heated it to look like snow.  I attached the greenery to the background, then added pine cones from the Pine Cone & Greenery die set.  I added two of the birds with mounting foam.  I cut the nest and eggs and added the third bird to it and attached it in the centre of the card.  I used the Season's Greeting sentiment cut in black and glued it to the top of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.   The finished dimensions are 5 3/4"  X  10"  in size.  All for now, Sue x
