Family And Friends


 Good Sunday morning all!  They do come around quickly, don't they!  Today's card is from the Heartfelt Creations bundle on the show and far more traditional than yesterday's card (the pendulum has swung all the way back to the other side, huh?! LOL)  I started by creating a split background.  I embossed milk coloured card using the Patchwork Embossibility folder on the right side of the card.  I cut a strip of soft gold card and stamped it with the Christmas Sentiment Circles stamp set by Heartfelt Creations.  I used a clear Perfect Medium pad and gold embossing powder for a tone on tone look.  I used a piece of red striped grosgrain ribbon between the two pieces of the background and tied a bow at the top.  I added one of the antique gold buttons and some metallic Bakers Twine to top off my bow.    On milk card, I stamped my sentiment from the Justrite set called Inner Thoughts and gold embossed it.  I cut it out with the Splendid Circles die and cut away the edge leaving just the piercing holes.  I cut a second Splendid Circles die from the soft gold card and matted it my sentiment upon it.  Using the SunKissed Poinsettia set, I stamped it on the Rich Red card and gold embossed it.  I cut it out with the matching die, giving me enough flowers to layer up for my floral element.  I stamped it again on soft gold card and cut it out and used the leaves from the set and added them around the edge of the flowers.  I finished the flowers with flatback pearls to the centres.    A final double mat out of soft gold card with a pierced inner layer and a pearl swirl to the upper corner finished this card.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8 1/4" in size.

Now on the the Weekly comment game winners.  The good news is that we had an extra qualifying post with Wednesday's giveaway so there are two sets of winners!

Love this card and colourway, Sue, the ribbon and bow really lift it into 'special'. Don't think it's traditional at all - unusual with the stamp detail.

Dear Sue This card is wonderful and so pleased you are showing Christmas cards because I am trying to get in zone for making them.

I have loved your shows and big thank you for doing poinsettia stamp with the template. I loved the stamp but was struggling to line the die up!

Hi Sue

Absolutely stunning card, and the red and gold colours are fab.

I was so impressed with your high kick yesterday. The last time I had my leg that high was when I fell backwards over the dog, and my legs went right over my head. Luckily Berkeley (the dog ) was fine, that put a whole new meaning to being flexible.

Kind regards :-)
