Keep Christmas In Your Heart All Year

 Hi bloggers!  How about a super sparkly Christmas card?  I started with the Deco Trees die set and cut the outer part of the die in white.  I covered a piece of white card with a sticky self adhesive sheet, peeled the backing off and attached the die cut to it.  I used Lilac Shine Holographic Glitterbitz on the exposed adhesive sheet.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangle die set to make a thin frame and attached it with mounting foam.  I cut the Keep Christmas In Your Heat All Year die cut out of silver mirror card and glued it into the centre of the frame.  I cut three poinsettias using the Classic Poinsettia out of vellum and assembled and attached them in opposite corners.  I used Evergreen Branches cut in white as accents.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh this is right up my street, so to speak, love the bling and glitter and the sentiment is perfect, another to add to my list.

Steph Cotterill said...

Oh my word what an absolute stunner Sue, I'm not sure if you've shown us the lilac holographic glitterbitz before but it certainly packs a glittering punch, isn't it pretty. Today you've given us beauty, class, inspiration and I think the nicest Christmas card so far. A card like this would cost a fortune in one of our fancy shops, I'll be back numerous times just to look at today's inspiration. Sending much love to you and all that visit today. STAY SAFE KEEP CARING xxx 💖

Apart from the beauty of the card, the sentiment is just perfect for these troubled times and sends us a message I think.

Hi Sue, it's sooooo sparkly! I purchased this die having seen your post in October featuring this die and have made all my 'special family cards' with it, incorporating an older die (snowflake mini striplet snipped into). WakeyL

Hi Sue and everyone what a beauti you have made for us today. I absolutely love the colour of the sparkles today and I dont think I've seen this one before either. As some of the other lovely ladies in the group said the sentiment is perfect too.
I have double sided sticky sheets but haven't used them yet. I've just run out of time this year and had so much more I wanted to do sigh. Higs to anyone who needs or just wants one today Donna xx

MaggieMac said...

Great card today Sue... however using gilding flakes or glitter is funny for me right now as Loki and Jazzy think its a new plaything!!!
they're really funny but make an unholy mess!!!!

A really beautiful card!

CCM said...

What a gorgeous and elegant sample! The Lilac Shine Holographic Glitterbitz is so beautiful. and the sentiment Keep Christmas In Your Heat All Year, one of my favorite sentiments, is a wonderful statement.
"We talk of the spirit of the season: of kindness, charity and love. Imagine if we all kept this spirit in our hearts throughout the year. What a wonderful world it would be."

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.
