Festive Wishes

Hello bloggers!  This is one of my favourite cards from the Christmas release.  I started by coating a piece of card with Stellar Ice Luna Paste and allowing it to dry well.  I cut the outer die from the Deco Trees Background out of white card.  I cut a piece of the dried Luna paste card and used it as a backing for the die.  Next I cut the inner die from the set out of another piece of the luna paste card.  I backed it with white card this time, but I paper pieced the trees back into the card.  I added this section to the other die cut with foam.  I layered up the inner circle cut from the luna paste card as well.  I cut the Festive Wishes die out of both antique gold card and gold mirror card.  I used the mirror card as a shadow behind and then glued the sentiment to the circle die.  I cut a larger piece of white card and used double sided sticky tape around the edges.  I coated the tape with Iced Snow.  I added the other die cut element to the centre with foam.  I cut the Classic Poinsettias out of vellum and used a bit of the luna paste on the petals before assembling the flowers.  I seated them in opposite corners and used Evergreen Branches cut in white as accents.  The card was completed with white and gold mats and layers.   The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  8" in size.  All for now.

Hi Sue. I can completely understand why, with its calming soothing muted but beautiful colour scheme and the beautiful bling with your vellum poinsettia flower it really is something special. With my hit and miss crafting I sometimes have that one favourite that makes me think "yes I have actually learnt something after all these years" and I'm proud of my one beautiful card, others I hang my head in shame lol but Sue your work is just gorgeous so this favourite tells me in true life this is incredibly stunning. I just know these next few weeks you're going to make us so christmassy. STAY SAFE KEEP CARING xxx ๐Ÿ’–
