Elegant Noel Card



Hi crafters!  If you like the clean and simple look, this one is for you!  It is also a very easy card to make in batches as it is very quick to do! While pink may not be everyone's choice for a Christmas card, this one can be done in any colour you like and it will still look fabulous!


































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

Morning Sue. I remember seeing this during launch and last week on one of your shows. There are so many gorgeous cards made with this simple but useful die, and as you've stated it's brilliant for quick and batch makes. Enjoy your day xx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, nothing wrong with pink at Christmas, I like this look so will be watching the video with interest to see how you got it, I have an idea in my head so hope I have hit on the same technique you have used. The Noel letters are stunning and with the embossed snowflake it is perfect, yes I like this.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hello Sue
Just watched the video I hadn't realised that the Noel die had so many parts to it. Another to add to my ever growing list of must haves

Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue,
Whilst I appreciate the need for simple cards for batch making, I'm sorry to say that this doesn't excite me. I do love the Noel die and its versatility but as stand-alone, this hasn't done it justice.
So sorry Sue. Hope that when I watch the video, I'll change my mind. Hugs xx Pauline

Yay! I ordered the NOEL die after seeing this on C&C!
I loved your previous NOEL die but never bought it I couldn’t resist this lovely stacked version
I’m not sure about the pink though I will watch video later Like you say easy for batch made elegant cards as well as smaller ones for posting too

This is so effective. I love it.

Tressa said...

Who is to say what should be normal Christmas colours? Not me for sure! Any colour does for me if the sentiment is there. I like this simple sample a lot. The gold infill in the sentiment adds a nice touch of bling.

Sorry but not for me this card. I recall seeing it in the Christmas die launch and didn’t like it then. The die itself, however, is lovely and very useful.

Eunice Astle said...

WOW so simple and so beautiful! Love this technique!

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, nothing wrong with a pink Christmas, just not for me but I love the style and would maybe try this technique with a different colour or perhaps use a pixie powdered background. I love the Noel die and think that I will have to sneak it into the house very soon.

A good technique for the background which looks very easy to achieve. I don’t have the Noel so will have to see how I can use it with some other Dies. Thank you Sue.

Simply designed, fast and oh so pretty. I stopped your video just after your Oxide treatment and headed to my craft room. I needed a good background, in purple of course, and this technique would be perfect for my project. None of my gold pens would flick dots of gold, so I used a stamp that I have that has random dots on it. I used versamark and then gold embossing powder over the random dots and heat set. I got carried away with the gold dots, but I think it will work for my background that I need. Thank you again for another inspiring video. I so appreciate you sharing your techniques. Happy Day!
