Let It Snow

Hi there my crafty friends!  If you haven't begun your Christmas cards yet, you may want to get started on them!   Time is creeping closer now.  I have even seen my first Christmas trees for sale in stores nearby!  I started with the Falling Snow Embossing folder and gave some texture to my coconut white card background with it.  Next I cut two of the Pearly Snowflake Borders in Arctic Blue card and glued them together to extend it.  I glued it to the top of the card and cut the side edges even with the background.  Next I cut three of the Danielle die.  Two were cut out of Arctic Blue card and backed with white.  I cut the last one out of white card and backed it with Arctic Blue card.  I attached the two Danielle dies to the sides of the card then added the white Danielle to the centre of them with mounting foam to raise it. I cut the Let It Snow Shadowed sentiment out of Bluebell card and added it onto a white shadow backing.  I added it with foam to the centre of the Danielle die.   I added white flatback pearls to the tips of the snowflakes within the dies and on the pearly snowflake border as well.  The card was completed with white and arctic blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  9 1/4" in size.  All for now Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, this is such a beautiful sample, it inspired me to purchase the dies when they were first released, the dies cut beautifully and I must admit I have done this one and I loved it.

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

Good morning Sue.
This has to be one of the most prettiest samples that I've seen from this die launch, although many of the dies can be used all year there's just something about this Snowflake border, it's so delicate. This has started my day with a smile, I hope your day starts the same way xxx

Beautiful card. I love this it so delicate and simple. I just started my Christmas cards at the weekend, I know I’m a bit late starting and don’t have too many to do, not like some people.

Hi Sue, no I've not started due to my husband snapping his achilles tendon and being out of action on his feet since mid August so time is not a friend of mine at the moment for crafting. One thing I do insist on is being able to look at your blog on a daily basis regardless of what needs to be done. I love the pearly snowflake border. WakeyL

Hello Sue and all
Such a beautiful card from the embossing folder to the dies used and the gorgeous colours, love it.
Hope you are out of hospital soon Julie,
I don’t have many cards made at all for this time of year thanks to breaking my wrist in June and still being full of pins and needles.. I can manage some card making but getting better, I have some left from last year so some recipients may have to be a bit understanding, same dies - different colours this year lol !
