Christmas Double Days

Hello there crafters!  We have come to the end of the Christmas double days!  It's about time, huh! LOL  I do still have some Christmas cards left that haven't been posted but those will all go up on Christmas day.  I have chosen two red, white and black cards to finish up this years double days.  First up, I cut an oval aperture in the middle of a piece of white card and embossed the aperture with the Swirling Holly folder.  I raised it with foam and then added a black frame around the aperture.  I embossed the area within the aperture opening too and cut the Seasons Greetings die in black.  I layered up two of them then added them to the centre of the framed area.  I cut several of the Classic Poinsettia in red card and coated them with Cosmic Lacquer and allowed them to dry before assembling.  I added them around the frame and accented them with Holly sprays.  The usual pierced white mat, then a thin red and black mat and a final white mat finished the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  9" in size.  Scroll down for card number two.







For card number two, I started by cutting the Three Wise men striplet in the card on the left side.  I backed it with a piece of black card that had been coated with Ebony Ice.  I cut the Vertical Peace die out of both white and black card and offset them to create a shadow,  I mounted it on the lower right hand side of the card. Using both the Classic Poinsettia and the Poinsettia Outline die, I created three tone on tone poinsettias.  I added them around the sentiment and striplet as accents.  I finished the card in the same way as above with my usual pierced mat and other layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 3/4" in size.  I hope you have enjoyed this years Christmas double days!  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue. A wonderful way to round up the Christmas double days as both cards are stunning. I'll be making christmas cards throughout January as I find it a very productive time of year for me. With all the inspiration from this Christmas, it gives me the fuel I need to replenish my stock ready for 2016! Thank you so much.X

Good morning Sue. Both cards are lovely. I've made quite a few cards with the Wise Men striplet and they've all turned out well. Poinsettias are always a winner.

Red/black/white always a favourite colour scheme and these two card are equally impressive - thank you, Sue, have loved the double days and sorry to see them end. Sadly have given up on making 2015 cards (now too late) will do better hopefully in 2016 ha!!
Barbara - oh my, just take care in your tricky situation. As they say, timing is everything, so fingers crossed for you.
Missing friends - big hugs.

Diane said...

Hi Sue
Two beautiful cards today and similar in style to some I've made, but not with the twiddly extras! Oh I tried a sparkly poinsettia too and it was so pretty I couldn't use it! I'm thinking it might go on a gift bag I'm making for my sisters present so it goes to someone special who will appreciate it. I'm also thinking of making lanterns with the 3 wise men die - still at the thinking stage I'm afraid! Take care

Hi Sue,
Two absolutely stunningly beautiful cards today. I love them both. The lacquer on the poinsettia in the first one really makes them pop. I think however that the second one wins for me though. The wise men die is gorgeous and then with the peace die from last year's collection which was my favourite the whole card has just everything and sums up the spirit of Christmas for me.
Love and hugs to everyone and especially Melody, Francis and Tracy, love Alison xx

Thank you Sue for such good inspiration.

Lorraine Freeman said...

Gorgeous cards, I love them both. The colour combination is stunning. Thank you so much for sharing all the step by steps too.
My daughter asked me to make a special card for someone at work who she thought would really appreciate it. Out came the Sue dies and we are both pleased with it.
That means I am now ready to pack all the craft stuff away, I just hope I can find it all on the other side :)
Tracy, I hope your treatment is working well and hope you are allowed to feel better over Christmas.
Laine, missing you hun. I hope all is well with you and your Mum.
Yvonne, you have been quiet too so hope the same for you.
Melody I really hope your lack of posting is due to being too busy and not Francis having a bad time.
Molly, still no internet?
The blog is quieter than usual but guess that's to be expected at this time of year.
I must go and get my self together and crack on with that packing away.
Wishing good things to all

Yvonne G said...

Hi Sue
Both gorgeous. Itching to recreate any of your masterpieces but unable to do very much at the moment due to overwhelming fatigue.
Just happy to be able to actually check out our beloved Particraft but not been able to go back over all comments so do not know what has been going on with everyone.
A lot to catch up on but in the meantime I will send all of you loads of love and warm hugs

Not been on much lately, having fibro and Christmas don't go together at all. The fatigue really gets me down, as I used to be so active.

Hi Sue and everyone,
will miss the double and single Christmas cards

So many new stamps and dies to make into cards. Thank you
so much for everything you are making up to show us.
Might have to start the Christmas ones in April for -16
don't like being this stressed.

Linda- could we feel any worse ? Don't know about you
but this weather we got in the UK do nothing good. So
tired all the time while the brain falling over itself
with things that needs doing. Anyone who suffering with
Fibro. ME or any other illness worse during the winter,
take care and hope you feeling a little better tomorrow.
Thinking of you all who going trough some tough times at
