Gilded Snowflake

Hello crafters! I hope this brightens your weekend!  As requested, another Christmas card idea for you!

Buy from Joanna Sheen







Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/4" in size.  If you liked the video, please leave me a comment on the You Tube site. Click on the icon in the lower right hand corner of the video and it takes you directly to the site.  You can also view the video picture larger that way too, I am told!  All for now, Sue x

I love using gilding flakes and they look stunning on your card. I think the video's are great especially for those of us who are not able to record the TV shows.
Have a good day.

Hi Sue, great card today, just in time for Christmas. I have this snowflake and the gilding flakes so will give it a try tomorrow.

Will watch the videos too, they are fantastic and so much better than the written version! I think everyone learns from doing rather than reading although it does help to print of for reference later.

Craftihappiness to you all, love from Pearl

Hi Sue and hi to all that enter Sueland this cold dull Saturday. This card sure brings a warmth to the miserable British weather. Im still trying to get to grips with guilding flakes, I either use too much or too little glue, so Im still in the experimental school of flakes and hate to see my small 'trial' bits of card hit the recycle bin ! Maybe one day I will get the technique right so I too can produce such stunning work. I live in Lancashire (UK) can anyone tell me where I can get hold of the coconut/custard card other from CC please.
Happy crafting to all that enter here today xx

Dear Sue,

This card is so elegant. I am off to the craftroom now. I wanted to thank you for the videos and for joining forces with Joana sheene to make the products available. Needless to say that the wobbly shelves in her store get visited after the video is finished as I have learned that it doesn't pay to hesitate! LOL

Thank you for all your inspiration and encouragement.

Good morning Sue,
I love the simplistic look of today's card and the gliding flakes are just beautiful. It gives 2 looks to my eyes both a recessed look one way i look and a raised look from another way. Fantastic 2 looks for the price of 1. It has that simply but elegant look which is what you need sometimes.
Thank you Sue once more for your inspiration.
Love and crafty hugs
