Season's Greetings

Hi crafters!  I started with a piece of blue dusk card and used the outer edge of the Ruffled Edge Frame to cut an aperture.  I cut the die again using Sky Blue card, but cut it with the decorative dies in place and only used the inside and very outside cutting edges with it.  I re-seated it into the aperture then added mounting foam to raise it.  I added it over a piece of white card.  Next I cut the centre die in white and added a blue backing to it and recessed it into the aperture.  I used the Season's Greetings die cut in Blue Dusk and added it to a white shadow backing and glued it in place in the centre.  Using the Triple Layer Poinsettias, I made three flowers suing white for all the layers.  I attached two in the lower corner and one in the opposite corner.  I used Evergreen Branches in white as accents around the flowers.  The card was completed with white, sky blue and blue dusk mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  9" in size.
 All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. I wish I had the Ruffled Edge it gives a really pretty effect every card I've seen both from you or on fb are just so beautiful. I could improvise with another frame and your very first poinsettias you released but I really will own a Ruffled Edge frame one day. Sending hugs xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I am in awe of the way that you come up with so many different designs for all your dies, this one is a particular favourite of mine and I am loving this sample. The colours are perfect and show off the ruffles and intricate dies so well in the different layers, thank you once again Sue for sharing these.

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

I do like this color combination. Who says Christmas cards have to be red and green? Great card and I may attempt my own variation with your wonderful inspiration.

A very "cool" Christmas card. Elvis Pressley's song "Blue Christmas" comes to mind. LOL. A change of flowers and sentiment, this design could be used any time of the year, which speaks about the versatility of your dies.

Hi Sue. Such a pretty card today. I would not have thought that those two colours of blue would look so good together, but they do. I particularly like the ruffled edge and the flowers.
