Merry & Bright

Hello all!  It's back to a clean and simple style for today's offering.  I started by cutting the Poinsettia Flower Square die in white.  I glued it to a piece of clear acetate.  Using Crystal tints, I filled in the flower with Rose Quartz, the leaves with Lime Peridot and the very centre with Yellow Citrine and allowed it to dry.  I added a white backing piece to it then seated it on an outer cut using the Denise die set.  I glued it to the upper part of a piece of coconut white card. I used the Merry & Bright Noble sentiment, cut in red.  I decided to put it on the card in a diagonal style below the poinsettia.  The card was completed with white and red mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/2" in size.   All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, it really is a merry and bright beauty this morning. I've been doing lots of CAS cards lately, a case of having to with time constraints but most of the cards that sold at market were the CAS cards I made, like the majority of this festive die collection they can and will be used all year round. So I'll send hugs your way and hope you have a lovely day xxx

Hello Sue and all
Love this die and have used it so much but my cards don’t have that Sue factor that this one does - it is just lovely and I will try something more like this.

A lovely CAS card but still so effective. I think that’s why I like clean & simple, they do stand out. Thank you Sue.

Good Morning Sue and all
What a beautiful card this morning and how strange that I got this die out last night to make some cards. The poinsettia square is a beautiful die and changing the colour we could use the die all year round.
Crafty hugs to all , Wendy

Hi Sue. What a lovely card today. It has taken me a long time to realise that I am not short changing people to send them a clean and simple card as they can look more classy than one with all the bells and whistles.


Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a great CAS card and I like the sentiment set on the diagonal.

Marie P - Congratulations Great Grandma! Welcome to the world baby Emily.

It may be clean and simple and it certainly is Merry and Bright which makes it a perfect Christmas card.
