Season's Greetings

Hello crafters!  This is a little different take on the Star of Wonder.  I started by cutting the Stardust Background into a piece of coconut white card.  Next I used the Star Of Wonder and cut an aperture in the centre of it.  I used several different colours of card to back the stardust background with including silver, cobalt and navy blue.  I hand cut them to fit in behind the dotty swirls of the background.  Next I added foam to the back of it to raise it.  I used a small piece of blue pixie powdered card  (Midnight Blue and Peacock Green) that I had in my stash behind the star aperture.  Next I cut a larger piece of cobalt blue card and used the Falling Snow Embossing folder on it.  I added the star aperture to the centre of it with the foam.  I cut the Season's Greetings out of the same pixie powdered piece then added it to a white shadow and attached it below the star.  The card was completed with white and blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 " in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
I think this is absolutely stunning. As always anything with an appearance of pixie powders is going to be an award winning sample and this is no exception. The Stardust Background is amazing (and not just for Christmas) and the Star of Wonder is perfect in it’s simplest form as the fabulous focal point. Love it love it love it x
Well the e mails have been coming through thick and fast tempting me with teasers of your new dies. They are (as always) all calling my name. What a wonderful selection of treats you have in store for us x

GoodMorning Sue and all
Such a wonderful card this morning and a different style from you Sue. The pop of colours from the pixie powders give a really sparkle and we all know they will be dancing in the flesh. The embossed background added real depth .

Good Morning Sue.
A gorgeous card, beautiful colours, I do so like the blue and whites, I find them to be soothing most of the time then all of a sudden one of them POPS.
It's hard to believe that another launch is due I wonder how you find any time to rest.
Have a great day.

A lovely post, simple yet effective and says what you want it to say.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Love the star burst background although to me it looks like a snow flurry. What a good idea to use the aperture of the star of wonder to show off the pixie powder panel.

Scottydog said...

Good afternoon Sue, just back from a week in deepest Norfolk where Wi-fi is a secret word! I had to stand on a hill with my arm in the air to get a mobile signal! So I am sitting down with a cuppa going through a week of lovely samples. This one looks as if it will be a very good batch card & I just love pixies so will be in my element! Thank you Sue for all your inspiration.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

This just might be the simplest way to use The Star of Wonder die. However combined with the beautiful background and the gorgeous pixie powders it is stunning.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Loving the pixie powdered piece for the Star of Wonder aperture. And you are so clever to cut and piece different card stock behind the Stardust background for an interesting play with colors.
