Christmas Double Days

 Hello crafters!  I have  channel card and a buckle card for you today, two of my favourite styles of cards!  First up is the navy blue and white channel card.  I started by cutting a piece of coconut white card into two sections, one larger than the other (about 3/4 and 1/4 in size).  I embossed both pieces with the Frosty Swirls embossing folder for texture and added mounting foam to raise them to create the recessed channel.  Next I cut the Classic Adorned Rectangle inside decorative die in white card, using the inner oval to cut it into a frame.  I backed it with Navy blue card and added foam to the back, attaching it to the top of my card.  I cut a mini Snowflake striplet in white and backed it in blue and glued it into place in the recessed channel I creating in the card.  I cut the thin borders from the Lavish Swirls diagonal and attached them to each side of the recess with a strip of white pearls along each edge.  I cut the snowflake tag and added it across my focal element die and then added two slightly larger snowflakes to the ends.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with a small oval die, using the die to trace around to create a faux mat in Navy blue to go behind it.  I completed the card with a pierced white mat, then added a thin navy blue mat and a final white mat to frame it.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  Scroll down for card number two.




Today's second card is a buckle card created using the Deboss Snowflake die and the matching stamps (designed by John Lockwood).  I stamped three of the Shooting Stars Medallion and embossed them in gold.  I used the matching die to cut all three out and used the inner die to cut them into frames.  I cut a long strip of milk card and wove it through the die cuts, turning the outer dies horizontally while keeping the centre die vertical.  I added tape to the back to secure them then added mounting foam.  I embossed a larger piece of milk card with the Let It Snow folder for texture.  I cut the Scandinavian Border in gold card and cut it down the centre, adding a half to the top and bottom edge of the card.  I ran a length of cream pearl strips along each edge as well.  I added my buckle feature in the centre of the card and used the inside of the stamped frame as my sentiment adding it the the centre with foam.  I completed the card with a milk pierced mat, a thin gold mat and a final milk mat in my usual manner.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  9" in size.   All for now, Sue x

Melody, I know how worried you are, my sister in law told me about my brother and we went to see him in Wales and he was so very pleased to see us. Stay strong honey, Francis needs his family from Ireland too.
Tracey, hope you are coping okay.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, we are gifted with 2 cards today, both equally beautiful in there own right although I think number 2 is just a fraction in front but only a very small fraction. Your cards are always so well made they truly are a masterpiece.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Good morning Sue,
Two beautiful cards today, I love number 1 as it just goes to show how well you can marry up your dies together. Number 2 is very grand looking making it slightly vintage in style. Totally different but never the less beautiful cards. Happy Birthday Molly. Yvonne xx

Morning Sue. Its that time of the week again. There is not many left for this year so we have to make the most of these last few christmas double day fridays and you havent let us down Sue. These are two beautiful cards. Love the contrast between the navy and white but then the tone on tone is equally as gorgeous. Sorry i cant pick a favourite as i would be happy to recieve either one of these through the letter box. Good Luck to everyone for the draw tomorrow.
Take care everyone in this terrible weather.
Best Wishes.

Two great Christmas cards for the double day, Sue, like them both but leaning towards number 2 and the unusual colours. Still haven't started mine! HELP.
MOLLY - a very happy birthday. Now you're no longer a child but a teenager and a young lady WOW! Enjoy your special dinner with your pals and sorry grandad can't be there.
Melody OMG what a dilemma - best tell him. Sure he will be pleased to see the family one they're with you and they must feel they need to see and support him too. It'll be OK.
Tracy - whoohoo new hair - hope you're feeling a bit better and up to crafting!
All other poorly people - big hugs and wishing you well again.

My oh my it's a difficult choice today as they are both beautiful cards but the first one has a slight edge for me but only by a slither - I think it's because I was using the snowflake die yesterday and realised just how pretty it is. Thank you for sharing.

MOLLY Happy Birthday!!! Pretend like you see little emoticons of balloons, cake, presents, musical notes, party hats & hearts...because that's what I want to type, but they don't seem to work in the blog. You're 13 now right? That's so exciting! I hope you enjoy your dinner out with your friends (& some family just off a ways at another table :) You are a teenager now! I hope your day is super special because YOU are super special!!!
Hugs from Rebecca in Colorado

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
I love the darkness of the blue that you have used under the white as it reminds me off the sky at Blackpool when the Illuminations are on. I have never seen such a dark sky is there is down there but it gives a tremendous backdrop to the lights. I used the frosty swirls embossing folder yesterday as it is probably my favourite go to folder at this time of the year and you get such a wonderful emboss from it. The stark white against the dark navy is a lovely combination together.
The cream and gold buckle card is stunning as well in a soft elegent sort of a way. It doesn't hit you in the same way that the white and navy but it is so subtle in it's beauty. Haven't yet tried a buckle card but i will as this looks like an "easy" one to start on. Thank you Sue for fridays double whammy, take care
Happy 13th Birthday Molly sweetheart, sorry that your beloved grandad can't be there but he will want to know all about your day and night when you see him. Enjoy your special day wee lass.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (glenochil)

Tracey, hugs.
I visited the blog yesterday but forgot to comment!
I have managed to get a mobility scooter and may make my first outing on it today if it stays dry out there. I went to a scrapbook class last night but had to leave early as sitting in those upright chairs really hurt my back, so have the pages to finish at my leisure.
I must see what else I need to do for Christmas so I can panic properly :)

Your cards are beautiful. I love the stark contrast of navy and white or cream. I don't own any of your embossing folders, but I think I need to invest in some of them. When prioritizing my wish list I seem to always choose dies first, but your Embossing Folders are gorgeous. I like the large size of them, too, since I make cards at least 5x7 or 6x6. Great cards today. TFS Jan D., Florida, USA

Hi sue.

Loving both of these but ur first one is my fav. I'll have to have a go at this one sometime.

Melody. I know what u mean about the big hair. My hair is really fine but she thinned it out White a bit so it doesn't look so bad. I thought all the wigs looked so fab. It wasn't as bad as I thought. I'm sure Francis will enjoy his visit and I'm sure he won't be too mad. Lol

Molly. Happy 13th birthday chick!! Have a smashing night with ur friends.

I'm still feeling sick but not as bad today just so tired can't be bothered doing anything an that's not like me as I'm always on the go. Well just not today lol xx

Hi Sue, lovely cards and although the snowflake striplet is one of my favourites, card number one is just a little busy for me. Number two is my favourite, I love the vintage look and the clean lines.

Molly - HAPPY 13TH BIRTHDAY, I hope you are having a lovely day.

Tracy - new hair! Just think, you won't have to visit the hairdressers for ages lol

Melody - even if he doesn't say so, I am sure Francis will be pleased to see some of his family and I think you did the right thing in telling them.

Hi Sue

2 beauties... the first, well I love any blues and as my striplets came today... yay! Have the snowflake swirl folder... I love it- I turn the flakes into flowers at other times of the year! The second is different to a lot of Christmas cards and I guess you could do it in many colours. Might try it letterpressing the snowflakes on the die and adding a bit of gilding wax instead of the stamp. I have loved the last 2 days' cards too. Thank you for some amazing ideas- feeling very inspired and hope to rattle out a few Christmas cards over the weekend (fingers crossed!).

Hugs for you & Mom from Billy & I x

I'm sure you don't mind me doing this...

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Molly,
Happy Birthday to you!!! :-D

Happy 13th birthday Molly, hope you have a great time tonight with your friends, Billy sends woofs, wags and lots of doggy cuddles and kisses and I'm sending hugs and best wishes to you. Have a wonderful day xxxx

Tracy, sorry you feel so drained and sick, bet your new hair looks amazing. Sending gentle hugs and hope you feel better tomorrow xxx

Laine, sorry you're feeling so bad too, Disappointed you've had to start from scratch with the antibiotics. Gentle hugs for you too and hope the meds do the trick xxx

Lorraine F, welcome to the world of battery powered mobility! You'll really enjoy it, it'll give you a lot more freedom. With regard to struggling in hard chairs I take cushions and pillows everywhere, there's one on whatever chair I'm using. Favourite is an old, quite thin feather pillow. I even put on the car seat when I travel, it goes everywhere with me. Hugs and happy travelling x

Melody, just say to Francis "I've invited your brother to visit" and leave it at that. It deflects the visit away from his illness. A visit from family may be the thing to kick start him feeling stronger. I sincerely hope so. Sending hugs to you both.

Beth, hope your ok, hugs x

MIA again, massive migraine that started Wednesday afternoon and finally left me early this morning. I don't like taking the strong pain meds when the migraines are bad, happy that today all I have is a very tingly head so I've had some and hoping I don't feel too dozy to play with my new striplets, snowflake and poinsettia, after ordering some last minute supplies.

Lynda, Theresa, Yvonne, Jan in L.I, Rebecca in CO, loved your comments this week, thank you and hugs xxx

Sending hugs and best wishes to all the Wilsonettes, sending extra special hugs to those who need them. Hoping those unable to comment return soon.

Lovely cards again today. For me, the first one just edges it possibly due to the colour scheme.

I can't choose as usual love them both. Best wishes to all jxxx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Absolutely stunning double day and have to admit the 2nd post is my favourite. Something a bit different, but it only just edges it as I love the dies and colour combo of the first one.

Jacquie Jacobs said...

Hi Sue,

Two stunning Festive cards, think I prefer the second one for a change, quite vintage looking by the colours.

Love & hUgs

Double days are double the fun! Thank you for sharing your ideas. I have not done a channel card yet, but you have inspired me to try this technique. You do this technique so well!

Nana on the Hill said...

Lovely cards Sue, think the channel card is my favourite, but l love your beautiful buckle card too.

Jess Watson said...

rolfi said...

Good evening Sue,

lilysmum said...

Good evening Sue and all. Two pretty cards again, navy & white, my favourite, but I think the overall composition of the 2nd card is preferable to me. But, saying that, I'm not so keen on the stamp-sorry.
Best wishes to all and a very happy birthday to Molly- ENJOY!
Hugs,Theresa x

Theresa said...

Two very different but very gorgeous cards today, I love them both.
I have the stamp you have used in the second one and have not tried it yet.
I will definately have a try at this one now.
As for choosing my favourite, I can't. They are both equally pretty.

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
Two beautiful cards today. The first one is the winner for me, but I think number two would be perfect for people in the States. As soon as I saw it, I saw the Stars and Stripes!!!
MOLLY - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! :-)
Love to all,
Maureen xxx

liz spooner said...

Hi Sue, both cards are beautiful, but the second one has a slight vintage feel due to the colours you have used.xx

DeeDee7770 said...

Both cards are exquisite and I would be proud to use either design but I have to pick the first. Blue and white snow cards are one of my favourite cards. The colours are stunning and I find it really makes a statement. I love the contrast of white and blue. I often use blue mirror card and white diamond embossed snow flakes.

Theresa Pace said...

oh i say. love both but i love the cream and gold one. the buckle card is your signature style, hugs xx

Saba said...

Hello Sue,
Love two for one days. The first one just edges in the lead for me but both are truly beautiful.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOLLY, hope you have had a lovely day.

Love and hugs for all

Hi Sue

Two lovely cards once again. I love the colours of the first one, but I like the second one best, which is unusual for me as I'm not normally a lover of vintage style cards.

Hope you have had a nice birthday Molly.

Love Helen. X

Both cards are wonderful. I pinned. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/415386765610696899/ https://www.pinterest.com/pin/415386765610696870/ Everyone says, "Merry Christmas" here in the states. Kind of wish we all said the same thing - (either happy or merry - doesn't matter to me ) would make card making a lot easier, lol.

Carol from La Crosse said...

You never cease to amaze me with your designs. I just LOVE the double card days!

Sandy H said...
