Noel

 Hi crafters!  Here's a simple Noel card for those of you that do batch Christmas cards!  I started with a piece of Antique Gold card and used the Flourish Border Frame 3D embossing folder.  I added a bit of Gold Glitter Kiss to the swirly detail for some extra bling.  I cut the Stacked Noel top die out of black card.  I coated a piece of card with the Gold Glitter Kiss and cut the second layer of the Stacked Noel out of it and glued the two pieces together.  I cut the shadow base out of milk card and added it to the Noel, then attached it in the centre of the embossed background with foam.  I used the Triple Layered Poinsettia to create three flowers, using the top outline layer and backing them all with vellum.  I added the three flowers in opposite corners and embellished them with Evergreen Branches cut out of milk card.  The card was completed with milk, Antique Gold and Black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Morning Sue. For the 5th day on the run my first thought on waking has been 'how beautiful' then 'is it Saturday yet I want to go home' lol
The Antique Gold cardstock is such a luxurious rich looking colour I love using it but something magical happens when you add it to 3d folder, this design gives the right amount of space to show the NOEL die perfectly, your vellum flowers are as always absolutely beautiful and I've already said this sample is the 5th beauty to raise an early morning smile this week. Thank you for your endless inspiration and I hope your day is a much nicer day than a wet dark and gloomy Yorkshire xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, amazing, love the flowers, embossing folder, Noel, in fact all of it, I am thinking also that the opal polish would also make a nice colour on the embossing folder too.

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

Good Morning Sue and all
Such a stunning card , the effect from the 3D embossing is amazing and looks so expensive working along side the gold card stock. It would not be a true Sue wilson card with out being finished with some stunning flowers.

Hello Sue. What a really unusual Christmas card without all the usual bells and whistles, but doesn't it work well? Using the mantra "less is more" gives such a classy result.

Hi Sue,
a beautiful card. Love the antique gold card.
I watched the program with Gwen at 1 pm on facebook today
and it was a lot of tricks of the trade. I've got some paste
that have gone weird . Are there any way to revive it or ?
hugs to all, Maria x

Hello Sue,

This may be a simple card but it is certainly classy and elegant done in antique gold and milk card. The embossing folder provides such a regal looking frame for the card and the poinsettia are stunning done in vellum and milk card. Just beautiful.

Have a wonderful day.

So beautiful: colors, combination of elements and composition. Your 3D Flourish Border Frame embossing folder is awesome. This embossing folder is on my wish list.
