Shimmery Channel Card

Hi bloggers!  This just happens to be one of my personal favourites of all the Christmas cards that I made this year, mostly because I love being able to use some everyday dies as well as Christmas themed ones.  I love how well they work together!  I hope you will grab a few minutes to watch the video.

This week's winner of the Wednesday Card giveaway is:

A Happercrafter6!!!

Congratulations!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your card!

 The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Wow! What a stunning card! It always fascinates me how you chop and change your dies to make new shapes, for a second I thought it was a new die lol!. The black and milk card look so pretty together and the enchanted gold mica is gorgeous. The recipient of this card would be thrilled to receive it. I enjoy video days thank you for sharing with us. Because my Grand Caliber broke yesterday I was using my Cuttlebug to cut out the smaller shapes and was pleased to see that a lot of your dies went through the rollers.
Congratulations to Happycrafter

Tracy Stitt said...

Hi sue and crafters.

Love the card as usual I love how u can just mix and match everything together how can anyone possibly go wrong? Lol videos are always fantastic.

Lorraine 1972. Yes I'm getting nervous now lol
Going to cross house for the surgery and chemotherapy. And Glasgow for the radiotherapy and fertity treatment. Not all in that order of course.
I was meant to have the surgery in Ayr last week but they decidedto use the ultrasound and wire technique which they don't do in Ayr so was referred back to crosshouse. So that's why it was delayed u a week. Xx

Hugs and love to all those in need xx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I can see why this is a favourite of yours. Very clever use of the dies and dusting with the mica looks so pretty. I think it would still look good using a deep blue or red for those of us that shy away from black.

Beverley W - Happy Birthday, hope you have a great day with the family.

Congratulations Jan (A Happercrafter6) on being the Wednesday Winner. You have won a stunning card, enjoy!

Nice card, Sue, and as always a joy to watch the video - thank you. Feeling drawn towards shimmery mica powder, but not at all 'arty' so shall ponder a little longer!

Beautiful card today Sue. Thank you for sharing and for the video.. I keep thinking I must get the snowflake border because you are using it a lot. Think I will have to give in.

Love all the texture and depth on this card! It really shines! TFS!

Suzzette Yandle said...

This card is certainly a stunner of a card. Yes, I would be one of those persons who would love to receive this card for Christmas! I like how you used everyday dies with Christmas/Winter die cuts and folder. Love how you cut the one die cut to make a filigree edging to your greeting piece. Sue, you are most clever. Thanks for the video. Did I tell you I finally found the "thumb" icons so I can "like" each video? Wishing all a wonderful weekend.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,

Melody and Francis lots of love X Mollie special hugs for you , your Mum no Dad and sisters! X
Have a good weekend everyone - or the best you can in the circumstances.
