Christmas Double Day

Hi bloggers!  Two completely different cards for our double day of Christmas!  First up is an almost romantic looking gold and white card.  I started with a piece of coconut white card for the background.  I cut four of the Poinsettia Clusters in white and added antique gold flowers to them.  I glued two across the top and two across the bottom of the card.  Next, I cut a wide strip of white card and embossed it with the Wild Poinsettia embossing folder.  I raised it with mounting foam and attached it across the centre of the card.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with the Pierced Flags die set, adding a gold mat for it by using the next size up in the set.  I added it across the centre of the card then made two sheer Poinsettias using vellum and the Classic Poinsettia die set.  I embellished the flowers with Berry boughs and Holly Swirls cut out of white card.  White and gold mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  Scroll down for card number two.

Card number two is a cheeky little gingerbread man card in a snowglobe.  I have loads of gingerbread cards to share (since he was the main feature in one of my Christmas shows).  For this card, I embossed a piece of coconut white card with the Poinsettia Trellis embossing folder for background texture.  I wrapped a piece of red crinkly edged organza ribbon around the card and taped the ends to the back.  I tied a double bow and added it to the right side with a white crystal sparkler in the centre.  Next I cut the frame from the Gingerbread Man die set in white and added a red backing then cut the centre out of it.  I added foam to the back to raise it and attached it over a Lattice Ribbon background with a white backing piece.  Inside the frame, I added a Snowglobe cut in brown with green holly sections.  I cut the gingerbread man in tan card and added him to the centre of the globe.  I decorated him with red and green bow and buttons and white icing pieces on his arms and legs.  I cut a little candy cane for his hand.  I added a rim of iced snow around the inside of the globe for a bit of bling.  White and red mats and layers were used to finish this card.  The finished dimensions are
7 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Love two fer Fridays Sue, stunning cards. Love the delicacy of no 1 and the fun vibrancy if no 2,, can't choose I'm afraid.
Happy 1st December everyone.
So enjoyed Julia's shows, she really does bring out the best of your dies Sue, she is a true crafter. Would e an awesome show with the two iof you together, Hochanda pkease take note.
Loved Johns shows too, missed Stephs mention, will have to Rewind. Well done Steph .
Maureen all this talk of dumplings and puddings brought back lovely memories of a happy childhood when you didn't think of the sad things that touch lives. My dad used to say Nanas steak pudding clagged to the ribs. Yes Rosemary, think it was more a Northern thing the women cooked for their men working in the mines, steelworks and shipyards. Hearty food, panaccelty, broth and dumplings etc. No pizzas or spag Bol in those days.
Alison good news from your Consultant even though it's not quite what you wanted. Let's hope this fixes the problem, no more pain or knee brace will be a result.
June, you are a star, I knew you ran a craft group but so organised with your collections etc. Wish I lived closer I would love to be no 15.
We had a lot of snow yesterday, driving was very bad, this morning it has frozen solid, please take care everyone, got to go to clinic this afternoon, hooe there is a thaw by then.
Hugs to all, very warming today. Thinking of all poorly and missing friends.

GM Sue. Love both.

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. I'm chuffed to bits to see your 2nd sample as I'm waiting in anticipation for both the snow globe, gingerbread cuties, plus 'here comes Santa ' to be officially handed over by Mr postie and I wish he'd get a shufty on as I've saved long and hard for these each month so my impatience is kicking in.
I made something a tiny bit like sample one as a winter wedding card and also for a December birthday. Plus some of the festive 2016 dies make fabulous male orientation December birthday cards too. So what I'm trying to say is that both samples mean something today. After a long arduous road trip to Leeds yesterday meant no crafting so as my festive order is growing rapidly with each email I really have to push myself to get cracking or they may not be ready until next December !!
So thank you for today's samples I love them.
Wishing you a warm happy day with love and a few hugs thrown in ☺ xxx

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, Two super cards for us today. I love both of them, I can't choose. Take care everyone in this really cold weather.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

Love Fridays and getting to see two cards from you. They are quite different, one is classy and elegant while the other is all about joy and fun. Either would be a delight to receive.

Hope that you and everyone on the blog have a wonderful weekend.


Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,

Lovely cards but the first is my favourite.

hettygarlick said...

Lovely! The gold and white one is especially beautiful.

Ann Topp said...

Good Morning Sue. Love the double days Sue but you really know how to put us all in a quandary. They are both beautiful works of art. Having trouble deciding but as my Grandchildren are both grown up now I think the first one just tops it a little for me. I wish the ginger bread man die had been around when my grandchildren were children I know they would have loved him he looks a happy little guy. They grow up so quickly and then all of a sudden they are adults. Where do the years go. Thankyou Sue for all your hard work I am sure by now you realize just how much we appreciate it. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Two beautlful cards todaythe first is very elegant and the second is so cute but its no. 1 that gets my vote .

Hi Sue - I absolutely love both of these cards for different reasons but I must admit the first one is just so pretty and delicate and gorgeous and I do have a penchant for poinsettias so it ticks all the boxes for me. Thank you for more stunning ideas Sue.

Barbara Gosden said...

Hi Sue
Two fabulous cards, the first is my favourite.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, two amazing samples today, the first looks really regal with the gold and white, and love the poinsettias. The second uses the cuddly gingerbread man, what a delight there would be on children's faces if they received this card, - also lots of adults too. I am not going to choose because it is too hard.

Pam I reiterate all you have said above. I heard Steph mentioned on John's show, I knew it was our Steph too. it was an amazing day yesterday on Hochanda with Julia (catching up for me as I missed some of them) and then watching John, I did manage to get out to the shops for a few bits in between the shows so I think I must have square eyes this morning, some beautiful samples and techniques, even to the micro beads for the sunflowers. Now take card when driving and hope the clinic visit is good. Would also love you to be no. 15.

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

Good morning Sue
What a fantastic twofer Friday, it's hard to choose today as they are both lovely. A sophisticated poinsettia or a cheeky gingerbread man. I will say I love them both. Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx
Pam echoing your comments today, do take care when driving, it sounds dreadful where you are. Emma had snow in Aberdeen so lots of pictures were sent to us yesterday, her lecturer was snowed in so her revision lecture was cancelled until today, so she stayed warm and snug and revised from home instead.

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue,
Two lovely card, love the elegance of the first one and the cheekiness of the second, but I tink the first is my favourite.

cheryl brown said...

Morning Sue,

A gorgeous twofer today...1 very elegant and the other very cute for our little fuzzy ones.

No snow down here for us...I think it has missed us out. Instead we have large cotton wool ball like clouds, bright blue sky and brilliant sunshine bathing the remaining leaves a golden hue.

Busy day today, have finally found and have had delivered a small upright freezer that fits just under the split level stairs. Has been bothersome trying to find the right size although the cubic capacity is smaller than the old one, bought I hasten to add about 10-12 years ago. So freezer food shopping I go later on. Frozen peas is the one thing I have really, really missed so I expect you can guess what veg we will be eating with tea tonight.

Gurt squashy comfort blanket ((((hugs)))) to all in need of one and for those feeling the icy cold fingers of winter. Stay safe if driving out and about.

Love 7 hugs

Two beautiful cards today Sue. One a fun card with that beautiful big red bow & the other a classy, elegant card which just has to be my favourite. As others have pointed out it really would be a beautiful wedding card, the gold just gives it that touch of opulence. Thank you Sue.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, two brilliant cards today. I love the gingerbread man having fun in his snow globe but the beauty of the first card is the one for me. The mix of poinsettias is what appeals especially the vellum ones and white and gold are gorgeous.

Alison - pleased that the consultant appreciated all your hard work and you don't have too long to wait for the op.
Pam - take care in that snow, so glad ours has gone for the time being anyway.


Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Two gorgeous cards, the gingerbread man is so cute in the snow globe but I love the sheer elegance of the gold and white poinsettia card so thank you so much for sharing

Sending love and hugs to everyone with an extra special one for Tracy

Hello Sue,
Oh I think I'm in love. Every time I see the Ginger Bread man he brings a smile to my lips. But then again, number 1 card is beautiful, so can't make up my mind!!
Pam, the snow has just about gone here and the sun is shining, even though it's raining at the same time, so I hope it's fine for your clinic visit. Good luck.
June S, mark me down as number 16 please ha ha.
Cheryl, enjoy your frozen peas tonight!
Laine and PP hope you are well.

Both lovely, but the first is beautiful

Love the first one, so very classy :) The second is cute but not keen (understatement!) on the bow :D

craftynanna said...

Two beautiful cards today Sue I think for me it has to be no 2 as I like the fun part it portrays, you have given me such wonderful ideas as most of my card orders were for the shaker globe and the stars of course I never thought of putting a gingerbread man in there you give us inspiration Sue and all your commentors are ever so grateful I for one can't keep up I think I've finished my Christmas cards now i hope, love and hugs to you and all the SW fans Johanna

barbara macaskill said...

Another gorgeous duo of Christmas joy! I especially love the first one! TFS!

Unknown said...

Dear Sue and The Happy Fridays,

OK, I'll admit that Izzi's right, your poinsettias have worked their magic on me, but my goodness, Card 1 is poinsettia overload!!! Sending me straight into the gingerbread arms of Card 2. I must give a nod to the berry boughs, which not only have Not A Poinsettia going for them, but also they convey a texture of Christmas. What I like about GingerBoy is that he's not sealed up behind acrylic and getting microbeads and glitterbitz in his frosting. He merely suggests a shaker card by being inside a snow globe. Very clever!

All the best to all of you, especially Tracy.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Always a treat for a "two-fer". I especially like the romantic look of the first one and how lovely the poinsettias look having been cut and formed from vellum. The combination of your holy swirls and berry boughts are a perfect "bed" to place the poinsettias. Thanks for the inspiration. Now if only I can get my Christmas cards finished!

Pam you are right about all the memories talking about the food we used to have. My dad was a miner and we had to move to Yorkshire for his work as they closed the pit he worked at. And I remember all the soups mum used to make Tattie soup Scotch broth, Lentil, Pea and ham, ohh and of course Stovies.
Anyway Pam I wish you well and thank you for keeping us all up to date I will echo your comment
I send everyone good wishes nd hugs

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
Another lovely twofer! The first is my favourite. The second is lovely too but I love the more traditional card! You have something for everyone , dear lady!
Maureen - I’ve read what you have been saying - your days are numbered!! Lol! Not being able to comment is like having Duck Tape stuck over one’s mouth!!
Pam - hope you have enjoyed your day off! It’s been freezing cold here but we have had lovely sunshine for the last three days! The sunset tonight was one of the best I’ve seen for a very late night time! Wish I could share the photos my husband took from his study window!
Now June - I too would love to join your Craft Group. The trouble is - if some joined - who shall be nameless - you would have a very small group!!!
Maureen and Littlelamb are trouble you know! I felt it was only fair to warn you!!
I may need to leave the country! I hope you all have a lovely Christmas! Lol!
Now - PP , Laine , Norah and others - we miss you!
Yorkie Girl - I can manage Tattie Soup , Scotch Broth etc. However I fail miserably on Stovies! Not my area so my Mum didn’t cook them. However Patricia made excellent Stovies this week! Is there a recipe for Stovies!
I bet you are all thrilled to have me back! - NOT!
Love to all, Myra ( Friend of Maureen!). Xxx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !!! A stunning two-fer today !!! The white and gold Poinsettia card is absolutely GORGEOUS !!! I really love this colour combo. I think the background EF and the dies you have used are very Elegant and mix and match perfectly together. This card looks so soft and dreamy. A real classy Christmas card, and a true Sue Wilson WOW card !!!
The Gingerbread man snow globe card looks totally opposite !!! I think it looks fun, colourful and very cute !!! I love the little candy cane and that fab red ribbon. Again I think you have used some lovely dies to make this card Sue.
If I had to choose a favourite card it would definitely be the first one as I just think it is GORGEOUS !!! Thank you for sharing. Lots of love to you Sue from Tres x x x

Lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Love both cards Sue, each has its own charm. The first card is elegant and more traditional and the second one is definitely cheeky!!

CCM said...

Hi Sue,

The Wild Poinsettia EF is so beautiful and has created an eye catching background for the sentiment, while the gold and white combination has given the elegance that any Christmas card should have it. Love it.
The second card is lovely, cute and fun. The adorable Ginger Boy made me smile.
Both are beautiful in their own way but the elegance of the first one won my heart.

Pam, Elaine – Please don’t send the snow here. Not yet.

Hugs to you all,
