Twas The Night Frame

Hello again my crafty friends!  This is the first of two new themed frames; Twas The Night Frame.  This adorable scene with Santa dropping down the chimney is sure to delight the Christmas feel in all of us.  This frame can easily be used in different sections to create totally different looking cards as well.  The best thing about it though, is that you can create a really quick card such as the sample shown very easily as you have everything you need in a single die set.  Leave a comment if this one appeals to you.  The last post of the day is at 6pm.  All for now, Sue x

This is one die you could snip about and use various pieces on smaller cards (which is my 'thing' for this year!). Love it. Thanks Sue xx

Dawn Holben said...

Sue all of the dies appeal to me so for lol.
I love santa's feet hanging out of the chimney, going to be a doddle making easy cards with this one which i think all crafters need especially me this year.Still not allowed to do anything other than laydown or walk around so will be extremely behind by the
time i am allowed to even sit in a chair. This die is going to make it so much easier for me to catch up so definately on my must have list x

Clai01 said...

When i see a card like this.
it always makes me think of a lighthearted traditional rhyme/song as a child...
Father Christmas,.... Father Christmas
he got stuck, ...he got stuck !
coming down the chimney, ...coming down the chimney...
What bad luck! .... What bad luck !!
so yes this card certainly made me smile! x

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Great fun and traditional Christmas scene card - love the die...

Yvonne19856 said...

Hi Sue.
My kid grew up knowing this verse by heart. And now my grandson is growing up with it and loves it as much as we all do. The book comes out many tines during the year and not just at Christmas, and although he's only two, he chatters away in his own little way, saying his words as we read it to him again and again. So, it needless to say that I truly love and adore this die set and it will be much loved and much used in my home.
Your card has made me smile very lovingly, and it has brought back some very joyous memories. Thank you Sue for all you do. Xxx

Heather Treble said...

One of the best "fireside" dies ever, Sue....You can colour it, or layer it, depending on your time/fancy! Nanny Jo N Ireland

karenlotty said...

Clever Very clever I think to get the best results would be to cut it out like you have done in several colours I live the cheeky Santa’s legs dangling from the fireplace!

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all

Fabulous - have to have this one - I have most of your frames, they are the best almost instant cards or you can really add to them and make something amazing. The Night Before Christmas is a favourite, I bought lovely books with the poem and illustrations for my grandchildren. I will have to make their cards with this die set this year.

Another amazing release Sue, so many great ideas and lovely original designs, where do all of your ideas come from ?


Hugs
