Imogen Triple Layering Die

Good morning crafters!  Next up is Imogen Triple Layering die. There are a couple of snowflake triple layering dies and this is the first one.  I wanted something a bit different, but unique enough to stand out and I think Imogen does just that!  Shown here against a backdrop of Paula done in Opal Polish, you can see just how pretty and unique she is!  She looks equally beautiful on her own or with other snowflake too (she plays nicely with others! LOL)  Just leave your comment and let me know what you think!  This isn't your usual Christmas card, but not everyone likes the same sort of thing so I thought I would share it for those of you that are rebels when it comes to your Christmas card palette!  The next post will be along at noon.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue.

Thank you, take care Kitty Davies.

That’s impressive. Beautiful card xx

Steph Cotterill said...

Morning Sue happy Sunday. I like the way you've gone away from the festive theme. It may take a couple of takes before this sample grows on me but I'm looking forward to the background die getting its day because you've been slightly 'cheeky' and hidden it somewhat behind a couple of Opals.
Looking forward to the next post wandering what is next on your list. Have a lovely day xxx

Netty The Runner said...

Hmm, not sure about the colours; not for Christmas anyway, but the some will like them. But the dies are a different matter, they are lovely. Annette x

Ann Topp said...

Good Morning Sue. Lovely card...but I have to agree with Jan and Barbara V...More of a modern teenager festive card than the ones we are used to seeing...and of course there is the fact that SOME of us older ones still prefer the traditional Christmas Card. Beautiful sample today. Good luck with the new launch Sue. Someone is going to be very lucky. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Such a different style for christmas card and finished beautifully with your new snow flake. I think you have great fun with die adding different colours to the layers.

Lovely card and dies Sue xx Hazel

I think as long as the colours and design or type/theme of card especially will suit the recipitant then anything goes for the season.
Although I prefer more more traditional pure white snowflakes cards in scenes like villages or forests/woodlands, i'm willing to create the more magical fantasy look also of snowflakes. x

Chris Curry said...

Love Paula, love Imogen, love the sentiment. Great card, thank you Sue xxx

Hunnymummy54 said...

Morning Sue and all the Wilsonettes

Have a good day all

Like the look of Imogen & the background Paula, love the colours but not for Christmas. I know I am old fashioned & a real traditionist as far as Christmas is concerned! Thank you Sue

Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue, I do like the colours of your background. Not too sure about the snowflake as yet. However, I know several family teenagers who would love to receive this card. Hugs xx Pauline from Teesside

A very different card today but I'm sure that the more modern ones will take on. I love the colours you have chosen too. Have a great day.

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
You do like to challenge us to think outside the box, it might actually grow on me. Maybe I am with your help becoming a rebel

Barbara Gosden said...

Hi Sue
Not sure about the colours, but lovely inspiration.
I have to say that I won’t use an eight pointed shape for a snowflake. But this die makes a great star.
Real snowflakes have six points.

BenteS said...

The snowflake die is gorgeous!
Not so sure about the background colours you have chosen for this card, even though I like to challenge myself to use untraditional colours for my Christmas cards ;))

Lovely die-a very modern, different style Christmas card today.

Lovely dies the snowflake die is lovely & so is the background die but this wouldn't be my choice of colours for a Christmas card but maybe I'm just old fashioned!

Hi Sue
Love snowflake dies, even if we don’t see snow at Christmas down here! Triple layering makes this really special.

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Love the snowflake die and to my surprise the colour palette and like you say its a bit of rebel in this colour way, but just as easily changeable for the more traditional. The background die also is a bit of hit for me. Looking forward to the next post.

Hi Sue, a lovely Christmas card and triple layering snowflake die.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I'm not a rebel so this card is not for me but I do like the look of Imogen she is most interesting. I look forward to seeing Paula and the sentiment on a different style of card as I like both of them also.

Arlyn(O) said...

Morning Sue, The snowflake die is lovely, but I'm confounded by the dimple depression in the background on the craft card. Not my colours. A

lindyloo12Somerset said...

I am not so sure about this card, I think I am more of a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas although I love the alternative tree die, but Imogen would be useful.

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

I really like this card and the colours you have chosen. I have to say I could see the snowflake used in lots of other ways, doubled up and offset with something over the middle and it would resemble a snowflake at all.

Love Helen xxx

Imogen - a beautiful die set. You can use all three layers together or not.It can be used to create a whole background or use it as a focal point for a Christmas card or all year round.It's up to your imagination.

Hello Sue,

A beautiful snowflake with a lot of detail. I like that because of the size, one is all you need but I think multiples would be nice as well.
