Christmas Double Day

Hello crafters!  The time for the double days is quickly starting to dwindle, only a few more left to go.  Two different styles for today's choices though.  First up is a gold and black card with a very elegant feel to it.  I cut several of the Lattice Ribbon die in both gold mirror card and black card, extending the lengths on both of them for the centre panels.  Next I backed each of them with the same colour card and attached them onto another card in a diagonal fashion.  I trimmed the card edges once attached.  I cut the sentiment from the Gingerbread Man die set in gold mirror card and glued it in the upper corner.  I added a large floral element in the opposite corner using the Classic Poinsettia and the Holly Swirl die sets.  On the poinsettias, I frosted the edges with gold Glitter Kiss before assembling them.  Gold, white and black mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  9" in size.  Scroll down for card number two.

Card number two features the Poinsettia Star and checker board border.  I cut the Poinsettia Checker board border three times out of coconut white card.  I backed each of them with Ruby Red card and attached them to another piece of white card with mounting foam.  For the Poinsettia Star, I cut it in white first.  Next I embossed it into red card so the design showed and then hand cut around the flowers and glued them underneath the flowers on the white die cut.  I added a black backing to make the entire design pop out then added it to the centre of the background with mounting foam.  I cut two of the Holly Swirls in white and added parts of them to the upper and lower corners of the star as an accent.  The finished dimensions are 7"x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Two most delightful gorgeous luxurious samples for today if these don't add a warm winters glow to thaw our frozen Friday then nothing will, I usually have one that is slightly ahead but defiantly not today. It's actually bought it home to me just how much I've missed out on buying some of the 2017 festive collection and I'm kind of dad, but it's not like they are retired after the festive season is over so I'll have to save up like crazy in the new year to allow me to 'catch up' with a few, I'm seething as I still wait for my Snow Globe and little inserts, and I'm certain my Gingerbread guys have been held hostage ! Never again will I be disloyal to my shop I'd rather keep her business alive than internet shop - cheapest isn't always best !!
Sorry about that Sue, rant over and hugs in the post xxx

Geordie Jan said...

Hi sue, both of these are stunning, think the black and gold is my favourite its stunning love the glitter kiss on the poinsettias' x

BridgetCG said...

Hello Sue, the cards for today's double day are just gorgeous, I love both designs and the colours. Hopefully I can get some of my Christmas cards finished this weekend. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Nancy Soetaert said...

Don't know which one i love most, two totally different styles, but both are awesome!
Nancy said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you two beautiful cards, both could be adapted to other cards.
Take care and keep warm Kitty.
My heart goes out to all who are caught up in the widfires.

Unknown said...

GM Sue. Love the first card. Fabulous!

Pussycats said...

Good Morning Sue and all. Two amazing cards this morning , I do find it hard to pick which one I like the best on Fridays as we know a lot work goes into your cards. I do like the finishing touches with the Poinsettia on the first card .
I love how you have used checker board on the second card, its has your style.
Crafty hugs and well wishes to all.

Good morning Sue,
Two super designs, can't decide which one is my favourite. X

TDQ Karen said...

Two super cards difficult to choose think number 1 has the edge

PharmacyMichele said...

Two beautiful Christmas cards, I really like the second one. That’s my favourite.

Morning Sue, two gorgeous cards today, love them both; the elegance of the black and gold on)e and the style of the checkerboard one. Hugs xx Pauline

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue. I love Fridays, but it is so hard to choose. I think if forced I would go for number two. Having said that they are both beautiful.

Dear Sue and Double-Happy Crafters,

Woohoo and Woohoo! I like the first card best, but only by a smidge. Maybe more than a smidge because I like it even though I don't have the Lattice ribbon. I like how the gold on gold and black on black give you such different effects. I do, however, have everything for the second card except the poinsettia star. Perhaps, and I'm ducking as I say this, it could use a little less poinsettia. Perhaps one of the other stars would shine in that role.

Hi Princess! Hi Matron!

Stephanie Pawprintx4, it does sound like you're on track to enjoy yourself. Perhaps your guests would enjoy decorating the tree.

I stayed home again today and slept. The only way I can get anything done is after everyone's gone, and the only way I can keep them from piling on the sandbags is to not be there.

And even though I had my oil furnace thoroughly cleaned and my chimney swept just two months ago, it acted up and now won't run. It wouldn't turn itself on automatically, so I had to press the restart button, and then it smoked and belched black soot. Now it won't run at all. So I left a message for the company and I'm running a little electric space heater in my room. It's doing an excellent job. Nice that my lack of heat is not caused by a lack of electricity.

Littlelamb, I hope your world is fully powered now.

Whoever it was who is thinking about paring her Christmas card list down from 150 cards, you have my respect for making, writing, addressing and sending so many. Respect and admiration. Well done!

Love and holiday huggles,

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

I always look forward to Friday's when we are treated to two of your fantastic cards. Today's cards are so different from one another. The one is elegant and sophisticated, even regal while the other is more whimsical and fun. Each have such detail and their own unique style. I do think my favorite is the gold and black.

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


June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, so enjoy Friday double days and these 2 are gorgeous, not going to choose between them because they are both equal in their own way, elegant and classy.

Pam I reiterate all you have said above. It is my hubbies birthday today 69, yes I have myself a toy boy haha.

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

Good morning Sue
Oh I love twofer Friday, both are beautiful cards today but I think number one has the edge today. I must have a look for the lattice die, it’s rather useful isn’t it. I apreciate the hard work that’s gone into the second card, paper piecing is lovely but you need lots of patience to do it. Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Checked in to the blog this morning and up popped the black and gold stunner!!!...WOW!!..and the best bit is that I have all the dies to make it for myself so everything I've been working on up to now will be swept off the craft table onto the floor so I can get stuck into making this beauty...thank you Sue for this last-minute inspiration as I needed some ideas for my nearest and dearest - I've done all the 4" dinkies I'll need for this year and some spares too...

Love the red/white poinsettia checkerboard card too but the first card wins by a country mile today...

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely two-fer today. I love the Poinsettia border and have used it on lots of my cards but the first card is stunning and wins for me today, it is sumptuous and flashy and not the sort of card I would normally go for so I think it must be the beautiful poinsettias that make it for me. I invested in some Glitter Kiss in several colours and I am so glad that I did. It is so easy to use and the effect on vellum is stunning.

Frosty and very cold today so keep warm everyone and Elaine and Donita I hope you get your heating sorted soon.


Susan Battensby said...

Hi Sue
Two beautiful cards, the first one is stunning. I have this die but never thought of extending it to put on the diagonal.
The second one is so unusual, I love it.

stitchingranny said...

Two beautiful cards this morning Sue. Love them both but something about the star one draws me too it. I think it is because as well as being more unusual its the fresh look the colours give to it.

Hugs Helen xx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Both lovely but the gold and black is simply stunning and I think it is right up there will my all time favourite Sue posts...

Rose in Chester said...

Oh WOW Sue, they are both absolute wowsers, but the first one is amongst my absolute favourites. So elegant and I love gold and black anyway. It's got a real art deco feel to it, absolutely divine.
The second is also a stunner, but there is no way do I have the time at the moment to do all the work required to make the poinsettia star as beautiful as yours.
Hugs, Rose

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue,
Two lovely cards for Christmas Double Day, second one being my favourite just because I have Poinsettia Checker board border (I tried it yesterday … beautiful). If the first one wins the elegance category, the second one wins the cheerful category. Both are beautiful in their own way. Thank you for the inspiration.

Have a great weekend dear Willsonets,

Hello Sue,
Once again a brilliant Friday twofer! So much inspiration! The first one is my favourite if you were asking me to chooose! This years’s Christmas Dies have been gorgeous! It’s ok I have a whole collection over several years but there have been so many lovely ones this time!
I have thoroughly enjoyed using them all! They all work well together. Thanks Sue!
I do hope you have no family or friends in California! It’s really awful looking at the scenes on television of the dreadful fires and I’m glad that the One in Control isn’t me! My thoughts and prayers are with all those involved!
Matron Maureen is doing well! I haven’t managed to speak to her patient yet!!!
Trixie has returned home Elaine - good news! I do hope all goes well for Andrew! He is a real trouper! You are too! Take care my dear!
Yvonne - it’s lovely to see you Posting! Give my love to Laine , please! You are both such fun and are missed!
Pam - the least we can do is keep you up to date as you do such a sterling job keeping us up to date !! Have a nice short week!
June - I couldn’t cope with a Toy Boy!!! Lol! Happy Birthday to your lovely supportive husband!
Love to all, Myra ( Friend of Maureen! ) xxx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !!! Two fabulous Christmas cards today !!! I really love them both. If I had to choose my favourite then it would be the first card. I think it is absolutely stunning !!! I love how you have used the Lattice Ribbon die by creating diagonal panels across the card. Also I love that you have backed each Ribbon panel with the same colour behind them. I do love this effect. You have used a lovely sentiment on your card and I just adore your Poinsettia flowers with the touch of gold Glitter Kiss. Nothing short of GORGEOUS !!! I think it is very classy and elegant.
I love the second card to. The Poinsettia Checkerboard die is just sooooo beautiful Sue !!! I really love this die. I also love the Poinsettia Star die. Your card is lovely. Really colourful and cheerful. A beautiful card. I am loving the Holly Swirl dies. Thank you Sue for sharing your Fabulous Christmas cards today. Lots of love from Tres x x x

Lots of love to everyone from Tres x x x

Two beautiful cards Sue. I would be proud to own either one of them. I have finally finished my overseas cards and today I must concentrate on more local ones. My Son came yesterday with another van-load of 'stuff' from storage and is planning on coming again today although we actually have SNOW in Longridge so maybe he wont.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all who are affected by the wild fires.
Hugs to all.

Pawprintx4 said...

Just catching up today and I will cast my vote for number one also. The card is just over the top gorgeous.
Donita, wish my guests could decorate the tree. My daughter used to love decorating but she is married now and lives in Maryland and they will get in late so I need to get this all done so I can concentrate on feeding everyone. My darling BIL is bringing smoked wings. I want to have my niece and nephew with their families over at some time plus sisters... loads of fun. My little dog will go crazy.
