Happy Holidays


Hello all!  How's this for a traditional Christmas card!  I have used my much loved "Tied Together" embossing folder to create the background for this one on coconut white card.  I had my flatback pearls handier than my PVA glue so I put them on each of the junctions in the background (it just cries out for something at those intersections, doesn't it!)LOL  I used some lovely red and green velvet paper for my poinsettias that was sent to me by a lovely blog follower named Annette.   I made two of them using several layers so they are nice and thick and full.  Just to keep it nice and simple, I cut a strip of white card and stamped my sentiment (from the JustRite sentiment stamp set).  I pierced the top and bottom of the strip and matted it on red card.  I cut one of the holly borders in black card and glued it to the bottom edge of the strip.  I mounted the strip in the upper half of the card and added the poinsettias to the left.  I pierced the edges to finish it off.  I really quick fun card to make.  Obviously less expensive but giving you a similar effect, you can use the Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue in white or pearl too.  There are a few close up pics for you below for you.  I hope you like it!  Thanks Annette, what fun I have had with my velvet papers!  If you are heading to Ally Pally today, please stop by my Rubbernecker stand and say hi!  I would love to meet some of my blog followers.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue...What a lovely card today...although I would have chosen green for the holly border die...it's a great combination and layout...have a great day.

Take care now. Deborah.H. :)

GM Sue - you have certainly provided inspiration on this card for me. I am going to try it with green holly border and mat not black and another holly border above the sentiment strip.

Hope you have a great time at Ally Pally and you get chnace to have a cuppa sometime during the day!

I see IW has a Spellbinders POD launching Tuesday at 9pm - any chance of a sneek peak?.....

Hi Sue, Very traditional! I have had some velvet paper for a few years. I bought it originally to make hats for my Dolls House, as it has a hat shop in the basement. I will have to get it out and use it in my cards, as it looks great if you run it through an embossing folder. Have a good time at Ally Pally. Hugs, Carol S.xx

What a beautifully fresh, clean and sophisticated piece - I never realized what a lovely embossing folder this was until I used it this week for a project - no wonder people have been asking for it and mine has been sitting in my draw for at least three months! Was so nice to see you today at Ally Pally Sue - it was the best day I have had since my darling husband passed away at the end of April and I laughed many times throughout the day with my twin daughters - we met so many lovely crafters.
lots of love
