Silent Night

Hello crafters!  I have a white on white Christmas card (with just a touch of silver added) to share today.  I started by cutting the Poinsettia Lattice Background into a piece of coconut white card.  I moved the die along to create a larger background area and cut it again.  I left a wide border around it.  Next I cut away a large portion of the poinsettia pattern with scissors to open up an area for my sentiment and allow the glitter from behind to show through.  I followed the floral pattern along the side and bottom of the frame working around it.  I glued a piece of acetate to the back of the background.  Next I covered a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet and coated it with Iced Flake.  I attached the poinsettia background over it.  I cut the Swirled Silent Night twice, once out of silver mirror card and once out of black.  I used the black die cut as a shadow behind the silver one, then glued it in place in the open area of the background.  I made three vellum poinsettias and seated them in opposite corners as accents.  The card was completed with white, silver and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Oh WOW Sue such beauty and delicacy, white on white is always a favourite and I think you were the first designer to bring tone on tone to card making ? This whole design is magical and even though it's stunning to look at on screen I can imagine in true life the sparkle is something else. Reading how you gingerly snipped away at this pretty framework, coated the background with beautiful sparkle the time, patience and love you put into today's piece it's all so worth it to show us this amazing festive sample. Thank you so much for all the inspiration you share with us. May you have an enjoyable day xxx

Hi Sue
This is a beautiful card x
It is another one of the many you displayed at Ally Pally and ‘in the flesh’ was even more stunning.
The Poinsettia Lattice is one of my favourites from your Christmas release. It really is versatile and adapts itself to cards of all sizes.
Well it’s the 3rd December already - cannot quite believe it. I can’t keep up.
Happy Monday everyone.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

WOW, how beautiful. Tone on tone is a favorite of mine and this one is so pretty and delicate. a real heavenly delight. I like the way you have cut away part of the background in the Poinsettia Background frame to expose the glittered flake, it must really sparkle through the acetate.

Have a wonderful day.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Beautiful winter Christmas card done mostly in white on white. The fairly large Iced Flake glitter makes a cool statement as an easy to see and sparkly background. You make me smile when you show how you get various sizes and looks by extending your die cuts and/or snipping bits and pieces away to make a completey different design. When you design your dies, you are so good to us crafters to consider various ways your dies can be used giving us terrific value for our money. "A win, win!"
