A Vintage Christmas Sneak Peek

Hello!  Here is the first peek at one of the cards for tonight's POTD shows.  I have to admit, these are probably not very Christmassy in the traditional sense.  While I was away, I got a phone call to do the shows and I didn't have the dies, the stamps or any Christmas papers.  They overnighted the dies to me, the stamps and other products showed up about a week later and I was prowling the craft stores in Florida for Christmas papers.  Not too much luck on the last one, though.  You usually don't see any Christmas until July in the States.  So I selected this lovely paper from My Mind's Eye for this card.  It has a very vintage feel to it which I love.  I started by cutting a circle aperture in the centre of it.  I used an embossing folder on the black card behind the opening.  I thought that I had used the one that is on the show this evening (Wild Poinsettia), but I used a similar one by mistake.  I think this one is called Constellation, but it was left in Florida so I can't check it for certain.  I cut several of the new Snowflake dies as well as some of the die releases from past years out of milk card.  I layered them up to make some unique snowflakes to glue to the edges of my aperture.  Using some black silky crush ribbon, I attached a piece across the bottom of the card and tied a double bow and added it to the left side with glue dots.  I found a fancy antique silver button for the centre of it.  Next I stamped my sentiment on milk card with a black archival pad.  Using one of the small Label twenty five die templates, I lined it up so it was centred in the die and taped it in to place.  I used some Antique Linen ink and cut 'n dry foam to highlight my sentiment.  Then, I lifted one side of the tape and raised the die so that I could adhere a piece of sticky adhesive sheet to cover the area to be die cut.  I taped the die back into place and cut the shape out.  Peeling off the backing paper, I exposed the adhesive and dipped it into my clear micro beads for a lovely texture.  I used some foam mounting pads and placed it in the centre of my circle aperture.  I double matted the entire piece with black card and used my Cosmic Shimmer black PVA glue to make small dots around the edges.  I finished the card off with some half pearls in the snowflakes and a spray of natural pearls across my ribbon border for interest.  How about a vintage Christmas in June (a little bit easier to take maybe!) LOL

Jenny L said...

Hi Sue,
I wasn't sure about this one till I saw the close up view, it really is a card you have too see close up to appreciate how lovely it is. We need a sort of 3D image for the blogs. Maybe one day in the near future. Can't wait to see more of your demos. Have a great crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Morning Sue,
This is wonderful and so very different for a Christmas card. Isn't it funny how not having the correct things you end up creating a real unique masterpiece. I love creations like that.
The dies look beautiful. I love snowflakes.
Hope all goes well in the shows
Hugs Linda x

I, for one (but it appears I'm among many) really like this non-traditional Christmas card. It's certainly a stunner and is a card I would definitely hang onto, unlike a lot of the commercial cards I receive. Gotta love that bow!!!!

Smashing card. Looks like christmas to me, every where you go lol (know the song) can hear it singing lol.

Hi Sue, I love the colour combo. It really emphasises the tonal & textural properties. I am thinking of making this the colour scheme for all my Christmas cards as it shouldn't clash with any colour scheme that the recipient has chosen. Thanks for the inspiration. With Love & Light Theresa.H

Even without the traditional christmaspapers, you still did an outstanding card here Sue, it looks awesome to me, and I would use it any time, that´s for sure. I love what you did, and the glitter and the text indicates more than enough, that we´re talking christmas, so it´s perfect in my eyes. I love it, well done.

Craftypurpledragon said...

Hi Sue,
I love that you don't have to your seasonal craft stash purely for that season if you think out of the box. For instance I adapt last years poinsettia dies in to flowers and have found they are great to use as leaves behind other flowers.
Love and light.

Planetsusie said...

This is a lovely card Sue, those snowflakes are really pretty and look great all together in the design. The pearls look like wispy snow!!! I have quite a few of the dies already and they are brilliant! There are still a few that I need though!!!

I would love to have a trawl around the craft shops in Florida -we had a holiday some years ago and spent a few days in Los Angeles - hubby was gobsmacked when I found a craft shop within 10 minutes of being out and about!!!

Hugs Sue Pass xx

Loving the snowflake dies and how you can layer to create loads of different flakes. Great to see an alternative looking card!

Hi Sue,
I absolutely love this card! Can't wait to try something like it. I've ordered the 12 sets of dies. The poinsettia is my favourite too - and I love your card with the tree and poinsettia trail, it's stunning. Have enjoyed the first two shows very much and am looking forward to the rest. I'm a very happy bunny - thank you! Sue x

Hi Sue Magnificent cards as usual love this Christmas one as being different is what its all about, keep up the brillant job oh just a little tip have a christmas cd rom with backing papers on it so you can print off all your christmas papers when you can't buy any in the shops and is cheaper too. love and hugs
