Let It Snow

Hi crafters!  Time for another quick Christmas card!  I started by cutting the Holly and Berry Border four times out of coconut white card.  I glued them to a square of white card, overlapping them in the corners.  I added white pearls where all the berries were.  I cut a smaller square of aqua card and then added a white piece cut with the Double Stitched Squares on top of it.  I used the Anita die cut in aqua card as the base, then layered it up with the smaller die from the set cut out of aqua, but backed with white card.  Using the Let It Snow Shadowed sentiment, I cut it out of Ocean card, added a black shadow using the words offset, then glued the sentiment to the middle of the Anita die.  The card was completed with white, aqua and ocean card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue. It seems most of us are guilty of under using the dies from your earlier collections and I love Jean's idea of you showing samples from your older files, I think we all need a weekly wake up call to remind us what amazing cards could be made with the Spanish or Greek collections for example.
Onto today's Aqua beauty, one of my favourite from the blue collection and one I hope will be available to us for many years, it really highlights the delicate Anita beautifully. Every festive sample is a winner. Have a lovely day whatever your plans xxx

Good morning Sue
I’m sorry I’ve not commented for a few days, I’ve been catching up this morning and Wow I have missed some beautiful cards! Today’s card is absolutely gorgeous, with some clever use of dies. You always give us some fabulous ideas how to get the most out of our dies.

Hello Sue and all
aqua or blue and white (sometimes with a touch of silver) have become my go to Christmas colours and todays card shows just why !
Love the dies and the way you have used them together, need your inspiration at the moment as next week is my family “special” cards week,

Good Morning Sue and all
What a stunning card this morning , I love how you have created a frame with the Holly Berry Border and the finishing touch with the pearls . The Aqua works beautifully of the design and love the darker shade for the sentiment.

Beauutiful card, I just love that border, so delicate looking. However I hope your sentiment doesn’t come true! While I love to see the snow I daren’t go out in it anymore for fear of falling & I know it is forecast for the north of England next week! Thank you Sue.

Good Morning Sue.
I'm late today because my keyboard and Computer were not communicating with each other so I couldn;t comment
I don't know what I pressed to get it right but it took me over 3 hours.
A gorgeous card Sue I'd like to change the sentiment to DON'T LET IT SNOW but otherwise perfection in every detail.
Have a great day.
Marie P.

This is such a pretty card. The colour is beautiful. X

Pawprintx4 said...

I do love the holly borders and have used quite a bit in my Christmas card making. I have not,however used them to frame a center focal like this and I love the idea. I don't have Anita but I am sure that other "SW festive Ladies" could step up to the task. Always great ideas on this blog and I do appreciate them and all the wonderful, educational videos. I have learned so much and expanded my crafting capabilities since finding this blog.

Hi Sue, a very pretty card and I love the use of the holly border die to create a frame. Also love the aqua card to give that frosty feel but I know that I would have to put some glitter on there somewhere :-)

Hello Sue,

Such a clean and fresh looking card. I like how you have used the Holly and Berry Border to make a frame for your focal element. The aqua card really draws your attention to the center.

Hope you have a wonderful day.
