Ho Ho Ho

Good Sunday morning all!  A little bit of gilding flakes and a little Santa in a sleigh for this one!  I started by cutting the Mosaic Bauble out of coconut white card.  I added a piece of sticky adhesive sheet to another piece of card, peeled the backing off and attached it behind the frame.  I used Gemstones Gilding Flakes on the adhesive areas and refined them with a piece of Rubit Scrubit pad.  I cut the centre out and added mounting foam to the back.  I added another piece of sticky adhesive sheet to a piece of white card and peeled the backing paper off and seated the frame over it.  I cut the centre of the Angelina die in white and made a thin frame out of it, then glued it to a solid oval backing.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it and seated it in the centre of the frame (in the sticky area.)  Next I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz over the remaining sticky areas.  I cut the Ho Ho Ho sentiment in both antique gold and black, shadowed them and glued them into the oval.  I cut the Believe In The Magic Frame out of black card.  I nipped away the Santa and sleigh only to use here and glued them across the inner corner of the frame.  I cut the Merry Christmas die in gold and black, shadowed it and glued it in the opposite corner.  The card was completed with white, antique gold and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Ho Ho Ho Sue. A really lovely mix this morning from grown up guilding flakes and the mosaic frame to our tiny little delicate flying Santa. I think it's gorgeous. And from this Sunday delight I thank you for giving me the pleasure of using one tiny item - your little Santa and his sleigh. I've used him on all my children's cards with the order I've just finished, my customer saw him once on a sample I sent for approval before I stick it all down and she fell in love with this tiny die she wanted him on all her children's cards, so you've put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces, mine, my customers and 5 little children under 4 ☺
What more can I say ? Final market today before Christmas so I'll send love and hugs for the day and hope you have a lovely day xxx

From a distance, the bauble frame done in white and gilding flakes seems like the wall detail done by an interior decorator for a client who’s a giraffe. How do you manage to put fun and elegant in the same card?

I hope you enjoy your Sunday and, if you’re overwhelmed by all you have to do before the 25th, that you consider leaving out some of the extras that add up to overkill.

Best to you, Sue, and all the

Donita

Hi Sue - a delightful card for grown-ups or children. Nice to see gilding flakes being used - can't stop using pixie powders at the moment and they too would look great as a background on this card. Sending best wishes

I Love this one Sue. It really does show off the spirit of Christmas with Santa riding off into the sunset.I too have used that Santa with his sleigh on many of my 2018 cards and if I'm still around next year I will be using it again.
I actually WON a mega box of card this week from Papermill and it arrived yesterday. It was so heavy that the delivery driver wouldn't
let me take it from him and brought it into the house
Have a happy Sunday everyone.

Good Morning Sue. Brilliant card to start our Sunday morning off with Sue. I love all the bling on it. And those Guilding flakes look lovely. I love it all.... and just imagine all the little ones looking on for Santa in his sleigh.
Just a short note here Sue.... if it's ok. I am not a lover of the social media sites...... but I do use Facebook occasionally .... really just to see what's happening with the younger end of the family..... I have noticed many of our crafters have started using this site to show off their cards. And can I just say that, the quality and workmanship gone into these projects are awesome and so professional....and mostly it is all down to you Sue and your fabulous products. So again Thankyou for all your creative and hard work you put in to make us all happy with this wonderful pastime. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love today's card - gilding flakes, sparkle and brilliant dies - what's not to like. Your Santa, sleigh and reindeer have made an appearance on quite a few of my cards and I have already had lovely feedback so I thank you sincerely for all your fabulous dies that make us better crafters. Sorry I didn't comment yesterday, I was running even later than I am tonight :-) Your card is a great example of its genre and I know steam punk fans will love it but I'm sorry it just isn't my favourite style.
