Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

 Good morning all!  I thought this card might make a nice one for the Wednesday card giveaway.  I hope you think so too.  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card using the Snowflake Lattice embossing folder for some background texture.  I cut several of the Classic Poinsettia in red card.  I matched the sizes of the dies with the same ones in the Filigree Poinsettia set and cut them in white, overlaid them and glued them together, then offset them to make two flowers.  I glued them in the corner of the card, then added several Holly Spray sections around them.  I added small 3mm white pearls to the spray as accents.  I stamped my sentiment from the Joy To The World stamp set by Creative Expressions and then cut it out with the Salzburg die.  I ran a bead of dries clear glue around the edge and dusted it with Iced Snow.  Once dry, I added it to the upper corner of the card.  I matted my card with a white mat, a thin red mat and a final white mat.  On the inside white mat, I added white Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue dots all the way around the edge to frame it.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  9" in size.  If you would like to be entered in the drawing for this card, just leave a comment on today's post.  The winner will be drawn and announced on Saturday's post.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue,
As Always Thank You For Your Kindness Who Wouldn't Love To Have This Gift Its Truly Stunning.
When I Opened Your Blog This Morning And Saw This Tremendous, Awesome, Card Its So Clean, Rich And Very Classy. I Just Love Your Beautiful Embossing Folders As They Have Such Depth In There Detail When Embossed, Becoming Very Tactile To Touch Which I Love On A Card And Your Fabulous Snowflake Embossing Folder Is No Exception Its Clean Yet Every Snowflake Stands Out! I Just Love Using Them, Even More Now We Have The A4 Size Which Makes It So Much More Easier.
Sue I Love Your Poinsettas They Looks So Opulent Cut In The Red And White, I Love The Holly Spray And How You've Added Small a Pearls To Accent.
I Love Your Sentiment And I Must Say How Much I Love Salzburg Die Its Such A Detailed Little Die.
This Card Is Just Tremendous I Love It As I'm Sure Everyone Else Will.
Sue Thanks For Sharing, Thank You For the Stunning Photography Shots They Show Your Card In Such Detail. I Really Appreciate All That You Do.
Sue Take Great Care
Love And Hugs
From Sam x
Hugs To All

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Thank you for 'a truly Wondrous' gift today. If it's not too forward of me to say that I've a lovely space all cleared and ready for just such a gift here in Burgundy.
So classic for the season in every possible way. I did not buy the holly dies but they are definitely on my list ready for next year.

Pam - Where are you? Hope you are OK.
Sandra - I missed you yesterday. Hope all is OK.

It's just getting light here so I cannot really say how the weather is. At least the wind and rain from last night seems to have passed over. Will have to have a trip round the garden to see if there's any damage.
We had a visit from our local young builder yesterday to explain to us just where he will be digging to put in new domestic waste filters and inspection points. There will be huge damage done to our bank account for that. We are not on mains drainage so we have a septic tank and filters. The European whatever has declared that everyone has to have a system which will pass all their requirements by 2016. We were inspected last year (and had to pay 47E) for the pleasure of a little man telling us that the septic tank was OK but we did not have any up todate filters etc. They will return in 2016 to inspect again and make sure that the work has been done. Hence our lovely builder. So part of our garden and front drive will be dug up next March. We don't have mains gas either and so we use bottled - so fingers crossed that they will leave that utility alone. Ah well that's the end of today's rant.

To all who are under the weather hope you feel better soon and to all take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Vick said...

Wow Sue this card is absolutely stunning, I love how the background actually looks etched out of snow or ice, because of amount of white! I also think that this card would look good with black in place of the red but that's just personal preference cause i'm not keen on that stark of a red with white it would have to be more of a burgundy with the white for me, but I love everything about this, might just steal it lol, hugs, Vick xxx

Good morning Sue
Absolutely STUNNING Christmas card today, one I would love to win, love the colours too reminds me that Christmas is not far away now.
I hope everyone came through the storms unscathed, we didn't get too much rain, but the wind was very strong.
Went to see my dear friend who desperately needs a lung transplant. She cannot even do her card making now, so very sad, she can only sit in a chair with her oxygen on. This is the lady who used to walk miles and swim in the sea and ran her own business. I do hope that something can be done for her soon. She would love to be able to lead a normal life and do the ordinary everyday things that we all take for granted.
Well I am rambling, so have a good day everyone and be happy.
Love and hugs
Dawn Searle xxxxx

What a lovely card, Sue, very fond of the poinsettias and holly spray and the EF perfect for the occasion.
This year's C.cards finished, but next year think it has to be these elements. By which time you'll have more temptations for us LOL and I'll be all behind yet again!

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and my Wilsonette Angels,
Oh how i love all the components about this card and the white is just stunning as always. Me being stupid, not too good with the red and white but that is just a simple change for me to Ivory or another colour to overcome my silly superstitious irrational mind and fear.
Didn't get to see John yesterday so perhaps i will get to see him on the computer today before teeny come for us to go down to mums and start sorting out indoors. Not too good at being inside her house at the moment but i will need to get some grit in me and do it.
Where are you Pam because now i am worried at you not being here 2 days in a row. I hope that you are alright my flower.
Sandra you were missing yesterday yourself, are you ok or did taking Lucy to the hospital kinda knock you out a bit? I hope that the wee lass got some positive help out of her visit as it must be worrying for her having the double vision and in some places dangerous. Tell her she is not to go hill climbing until she can see straight again(as my wee ticker couldn't take the stress of her getting her footing wrong). Sending her hugs.
Oh Anne, i don't envy your long days in between getting in to see Iain in the hotel. Balls of wool and either knitting needles or a crochet hook could work wonders in keeping down the worry that you are going through that will be heightened by being alone in the hotel room. Sending you and him both big hugs as you could both be doing with some.
Well getting out the car at the car park the fella that is in Shopmobility seen me and told me to stay where i was and he was bringing a scooter over. I get a row often because i don 't like putting them to any trouble. It can take 3 go's at the traffic lights to get across the road on really bad days, when Iain(the man in Shopmobility) goes daft as i should have called him from the car park and he would bring one across, but i always feel that there are so many of them that take advantage of the lovely people in there and i just feel guilty because i can still walk, even if it is slow and stilted at times( especially when the legs have decided that nothing and no coaxing on this green earth is going to make them go that day). After getting all geared up ready for Di's hubby, he didn't come as he has torn(so he says)his hamstring playing Walking Football the day before. Di thinks that he over stretched while walking to get the ball so it was lovely just us again because although he said he would just sit and read while waiting on us, i could just picture it when we got back to him. We will NEED to get him a hobby that he can be doing while we meet up for the couple of hours, because i don't think either of us could take the crabbit mood that he would be in when we came back. But i had a good shopping day in Deb's and got a few bits and pieces for Kirsten's bottom drawer or cupboard as it is now. I think at 75% off i did well for her getting a Meyer grill pan(one of those rippled bottom frying pans), a set of Joseph Joseph chopping boards that from a sort of v shape to get the veg in the pots and a set of Jamie Olivier' kitchen essentials like tattie masher, tongs for turning things, slotted spoon, normal spoon and spatula, so all in all i think i did well with my bargains. So banked up for her in this cupboard i have most of the things that you need when starting up a home and the two most important things being a rolling pin and good heavy frying pan which i will leave up to yourselves to decide on purpose.
We have a very nondescript sort of a day hear at the Ochils as if it doesn't really know what it wants to do today the weather. I hope that where ever you are that the sun is as least shining out. Sending hugs to all my special Angels that are on blog at moment or not, take care dear friends,
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue,
Oh goody goody! Another lovely poinsettia card ! I just love these poinsettias and am waiting for the holly dies to arrive - I understand there has been a delay as I should have had it weeks ago. However no doubt they will come very soon. Love the red and white too but the colour could easily be changed. I am doing one in pink and cream to match may friend's sitting room.! Lol.
Pam - missing you . Hope everything is ok. Sending you a special hug!
Norah - you made me laugh! I bought a new rolling pin a few weeks ago - had had previous one over 40 years! You did well with the bargains. x
Janet - what a kerfuffle you are going to have not to mention expense. Too many men sitting in committees all day thinking of ways to spend money! Now I'm joining in your rant!
Tina - Happy Birthday - Steph kindly mentioned it was your birthday or I certainly wouldn't have known? Have a lovely day.
Steph - there is a number for me to enter today. It is the first time but I have had to enter numbers for another blog. Glad you've got your mojo back!
Sandra - hope you ok too! Missed you yesterday.
Love to all, especially those unable to post at the moment. We miss you.

You've done it again, Sue. Beautiful. I made a card using these dies yesterday, but I am still having trouble with the filigree ones, even though I used the wax paper as you advised. Can't believe I could be so lucky as to win 2 weeks running, but will still keep my fingers crossed.

Good afternoon Sue and all out there. This card is beautiful and the EF is just perfect for Christmas.
I am sitting here crying and laughing at the same time watching Loose Women and the interview with the late Linda Bellingham.
I hope everyone was okay yesterday with the bad weather. I was supposed to go and see my Mum but she told me not to come as she had heard that small cars could get sucked under lorries - I have a Mini!!
Hugs are sent ll round. Take care all Helen K xx

Cathie Weary said...

Absolutely stunning card. The red and white is gorgeous. Love the embossing folder and the way you put the little pearls on the holly spray. Think this card should be winging its way to my home in Canada. Thanks for the opportunity to own one of your beautiful cards.

Maureen B. said...

Fantastic card today Sue thank you. Love the embossing and will definitely need that one if I haven't already got it! I like your idea of often sticking to just 2 colours (or is white a colour) you know what I mean. The cards always look so elegant and fresh. Must remember that in future. Your ideas never cease to amaze me thanks again Hugs Maureen

Hi Sue, who wouldn't want a chance to win this card? I know I certainly do, it is gorgeous. OH has 'phoned to say parcels have arrived for me so I am looking forward to an evening with johnnextdoor and some new Sue dies and stamps. Happy bunny.

Barbara W said...

Wow Sue! Another beautiful but simple card to inspire us all.
Have just encouraged a friend crafter to cut leaves and foliage in white instead of colour. She had never thought it would look right........but l left her making her floral cards in white!
Keep inspiring us.

Gail Chase said...

Good morning. This card is amazing! I love the lacy look with just a touch of red accent. I ordered a few more die sets and am patiently awaiting their arrival, so I can make some of these beautiful cards too. I just received the wonderful stamp set prize I won from a few weeks ago yesterday- Thank you.

Hi Sue, man oh man, I shivered when I saw this card...all those snowflakes embossed on the card :). I would never have thought to leave the holly sprigs completely white, they are very effective, and of course, the poinsettia just sets the whole thing off. As always, thanks for sharing with us. x

Sioux P said...

Hi Sue,
Just love this card, love the embossing folder, the Holly Spray and those poinsettia look brilliant. What a lovely combination.
Thanks as always

Wheely Bad said...

Hi Sue

A lovely card, I really like it. John was a very good 'Sue'bstitue! :-)

Blogger seems to have killed my comment and now time is really tight! Quickly though sorry I've been absent, very tired and sore. Must finish blocking crochet so table is free for some serious Christmas crafting. I don't have too many to make so if I start soon I'll be ok.

Big hugs to all, take extra if required.

Must go, hand going on strike!

Myra thank you for the good wishes for Emma, she had a lovely day and we took her to the pub for a meal in the evening so she could buy us a drink!! I managed to get the balloons and flowers in the car without being blown away but the wind got up in the afternoon so it was a close call! Been making the cake for the family party today so will spend the day decorating it tomorrow! Love Diane xxx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. Sorry I have not posted for a couple of days (illness.) I have still been looking in though and your cards have all been gorgeous !! Today's card, as others have said, is just stunning Sue !! I really love everything about it. The colours are lovely, EF and poinsettia dies are sooo gorgeous !! All on my wish list of course. I have the holly sprigs and I really love them. I am going to buy your Poinsettia dies with the last of my Birthday money. ( I have the Spellbinders ones but yours are far more beautiful.) It is hubby's Birthday today. WOW has it been an expensive month !! (To many Birthdays.) I have one more Birthday card to make and then I can finally make my Christmas cards. I only make them for close friends and family so not to many to make. (Although now we have found our Canadian family I do have several extra ones to make !! )
I just have to say Sue that your video and card from yesterday was amazing !! Really beautiful. It has definitely gone on my "to do" list.
I thought John did a wicked job demonstrating your dies on c+c yesterday. X x x
I would love to have the chance to win this beautiful card Sue.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful card today Sue and thank you for all your continued hard work. It is always much appreciated.
Sending you lots of love and special hugs today love from Tres x x x

Sending lots of love to all the Wonderful Wilsonette's from Tres x x x

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Stunning card today , I absolutely love it. I think it is one of my all time favourite Christmas cards and one that I will attempt to replicate! Whoever wins this will be extremely lucky so good luck to everyone. I'm sorry I didn't comment yesterday but my aunt ( who as you know isn't well) phoned to say she didn't feel well so I had to go and see her. She has been feeling sick, but won't eat which is making her feel worse. The doctor gave her anti sickness tablets but she won't take them because they can cause clots and she has just finished treatment for a clot in her leg! Anyway, I stayed with her last night and have managed to get her to eat something today so hopefully there might be some improvement. I'm sorry to moan on, but I am worried about her - she's a bit like my surrogate mother! Anyway, Pam hope you are ok, not used to you not commenting. Love and hugs to all especially those feeling down or in pain. Love Alison xxx

andrea said...
