Crystal Tint Christmas Frame Card



Hi crafters!  I just love these Crystal Tints.  They are fabulous to use to make beautiful backgrounds for your cards, festive or otherwise.







































The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. I love how your photography shows the immense sparkle on your background and the embossed detail on this festive frame, I know you don't always put your die cut through the emboss process but due to the quality of the dies and the machine you use its not always necessary and the stills show that in depth on this pretty festive sample. Off to see what I need to make this really effective background. Enjoy your day xxx

Good morning Sue and all Wilsonettes.
Another great card and I DO have the die for this one. The video is great and I really must follow your tutorial re. the 2 trees with the glitter. I will also (I hope) do a Pixie Powder background.
Great inspiration Sue.
Thank you.

Hi Sue
Wowee! This is stunning. Video on hold until later.
That background is something else. Looking forward to watching this technique. You never know I might even try it!
I really need to pull up my crafty sleeves and get my bum into gear and make some cards. It’s been ages. I usually have all my mums Christmas cards finished by July. So far 10! 40 more to go!
Happy Saturday everyone.

Donita Naylor said...

One of your best dies, with a great background techniques in magical colors.

This is a winner all around.

I have the technology but lack the courage to believe I can get a fabulous result.

Christmas doesn’t seem near because we just finished with hot weather, but it’s almost already too late! We’re never going to make it!

Best,
Donita

redfox said...

What a stunning background, I don't have any of the crystal tints but if that's what they can produce that might have to change!! I bet you must be pretty wiped out from reading all the comments over the last few days. You do work so hard and we all really appreciate It as we use your inspiration to create our own cards. Love to all Sarah

A beautiful , fun card. This might be my son and crew’s Christmas card. First Christmas for my grandson! I love Caught in Crystal backgrounds.
Your launch was wonderful. I always think you can’t possibly come up with more ideas to tie your previous collection but some how you do.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Sue

A gorgeous card. Love the die and the background. I think adults would love this card more than children, but then it appeals to almost everyone I think. Enjoyed the video as well, nice clear instructions. I bets there are lots of backgrounds made today.

Love Helen xxx

Hi Sue. I have just made a very similar card to this but mine doesn't look as good as yours as I hadn't thought of putting extra trees in the background which is a great idea.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I loved this card so much that I bought the die on release :-) Watching you create the background was most interesting and made me wonder if I had anything that would help me replicate it, I shall think on and maybe have a play tomorrow. I like the way you disguised the reverse cut of the trees using glitter - very clever and I will 'borrow' that idea thank you.

Hi Sue,
What a beautiful card today. I absolutely love it! The background is so striking and really makes the card pop. I have now discovered Glitter Kiss and love it - it’s going on everything!! Looks like I’m going to have to try the Crystal Tints. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win the dies in your fabulous new launch this week, it is so generous of you. I loved the collection but only commented on those that I knew I would use as I wouldn’t want to deprive someone else ( if that makes sense) love and hugs to all Alison xx
