Wondrous Christmas

Hi bloggers!  I've been having a little play time with the Tied Together folder this past week so I thought I would show it off.  I think I can even be so bold as to say if I were forced to pick just one single embossing folder to use (heaven forbid! LOL) but I would absolutely pick this one.  It always looks nice with whatever you put it with and I just love using the PVA glue to dot the intersections,!  This is also a little sneaky peek at the Frosty Forms set that is on my next shows which are on Wednesday this week (the 19th at 8am, 11am  on C & C and 3pm on Ideal World).  I really like the way this one came out, very non traditional but blingy just the same.  After I embossed my background with the folder, I tore two pieces of milk card to form my hills.  I covered them with our sticky self adhesive sheets (which I used scissors to trim to approximate the tear).  I peeled the backing sheet off and covered them with Cosmic Shimmer Luna Silver Mica flakes.  It gives it a snowy but blingy feel which I rather liked.  I cut two of the reindeer from this set, one out of dark brown card and one out of tan card.  I used a little tea dye ink to stencil through the die to bring out the pretty pattern on the reindeer.  I stamped my sentiment using Coffee Archival ink and cut it out with the Holly Motif.  I inked it while still in the die using Tea Dye ink again.  Using a fine tip pair of scissors, I nipped away the scrolly part of the die, leaving just the centre label area.  I cut one more of the Holly Motif using tan card and inked it too with Tea Dye.  I mounted my sentiment a top with mounting foam for dimension and added it to my embossed background.  I matted the entire piece with a tan mat then a final mat of milk on which I pieced the edges.  I added white pearl PVA glue dots to the background to complete my card.  I took the picture of the card for my blog, but I am still thinking of adding a tiny red nose on my reindeer, what do you think?  Too corny?   All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue, OMG what a lovely card. I was fortunate enough to get this folder from Sam's shop before it sold out and guess what I will try to make this card minus the reindeer which I now want. Keep up playing around because you come up with some beautiful cards.

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, I love, love, love, this card, the scene is fantastic. I love the reindeer and the sparkly hills and the colour scheme. I think this card is exquisite as it is, but a 'red nose' would be good too, it would be Rudolph looking for Santa ha ha. Looking forward to your shows, Sue. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Julie said...

Morning Sue, love love love Christmas cards and this one is no exception! I nearly bought that embossing board on Saturday but decided I'd already spent enough so had better now - wish I'd got it now!!

Hi Sue. What a fab card!! I love it!! I think this background folder looks as if it is an essential item for a crafter to have because of is versatility!! The reindeer just look so sweet. The holly motifs and accents sets are already on my wish list. I think your reindeer would still look great with a red nose!! I have only just got myself some mica flakes but as yet no adhesive sheets. So excited about wednesday, I cant wait. Love Tres x x x

Hi there Sue,
Please no red nose for Rudolph.

I love the background and I love the foreground but the two don't work together for me. I think a starry background would be better.

Looking forward to seeing you again on tv, must remember to press the record button too.

GA Sue - this is the first time I've done 2 postings on the same day! I still think yes to a small gem red nose (as stated previously)and having printed it out and drawn a red nose on him - how sad is that!!! but how about a little bow round his neck as well?...

I would feel so lost if I didn't come on to your blog spot everyday & see your cards. No matter what time of the day or even if I have to play "catch up", I just love seeing what creation you have come up with next! Oh "wow", this is gorgeous! I love this folder too as it can be used in everything. It would look lovely for a wedding card. It's so classy & elegant. I haven't got this folder but it's on my list. Love the colours & the added touch to the reindeers (which are lovely!) with the tea dye ink that just makes them stand out. The mica flakes are stunning for the snow. Ooooo, & you can always make another card the same but add the red nose.....now that would be fun! So glad that you're back on Wednesday! Really looking forward to seeing you on the 11am slot on Ideal World with your many inspirational ideas. Wonderful! Take care Sue xx Love Karen xx

That is a beautiful card. I certainly agree that it is also a fantastic folder. It reminds me of a baby's matinee jacket I knitted back in the 80s where you had to sew the stitches together rather like that folder.

I love the look of this card and now have all the dies! Will give it a try. I don't have the embossing folder but will try it with something else - although it's going on my wish list!

Absolutely stunning. You must have so much patience! I have just recently started card making and a blog and can only aspire to this quality!
