Happy Xmas

Hi crafters!  I let my inner grunge out a little bit on this one!  The Ransom Xmas die is on offer during this post.  Shown here, I have used it against a background of our Rust and Patina kits to give a rustic, masculine look to the card.  I think this one will work perfect for those friends that just aren't into the pretty or fussy sort of cards, don't you?  You did see this die earlier in the launch used with the dove in a completely different styled card.  It really does hold it own in either sort of style too.  I would love to see your comments and you might just win a die too!  I will be back at 3pm  with the final post of the day.  All for now, Sue x

Great die , especially as a centre piece. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t like “fussy”type cards. Thank you Sue. Xxx

Sandie Braithwaite said...

Good to see it used with the industrial chic die, and yes, I have a couple of friends who wouldn't want fussy , very useful. Could easily be jazzed up as well, though.

Love this sentiment die and it will cross all genre of styles as it isn't just industrial. Nice to see Xmas as well though I am a traditionalist and like Christmas. I think this entire collection is on the want list...Looking forward to the next post.

Lovely bold sentiment die.

I already have your Ransom Note Happy Birthday which has been used on nearly every birthday card I've made this year so this similar style is just a no-brainer and is bold enough to be used as a focal point too so great for batch cards...
