Festive Accessories

Hello there my crafty friends!  We are back to one post a day for a few more weeks now!  I began by cutting the Slimline Decorative Holly Rectangles frames in gold, red, white and green.  Once cut, I cut the pieces in half and stacked them so the edges were aligned on each side.  I cut a white one to use as the base in the centre of the card.  I used the cut away pieces from the Inner Scalloped Apertures as mats for the middle then added the Festive Accessories on top.  I used some Fluffy Stuff on the stocking.  I cut the tree out of Glitter Kiss card then decorated it with the small ornaments and garland from the set.  The card was completed with white and gold mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  8 1/4"   in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue. A lovely Christmas card Sue. And I love the traditional colours ... But I think it would look just as good in the more modern colours that Christmas is bringing us in recent years. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds.

STEPH. Thinking of you and your family 🤗🤗🤗

Hi Sue
A lovely return to normal with this fabulous slimline Christmas card, I will be using the festive accessories set for my cards this year

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I remember this card from launch because I took a screen shot of it for my reference files. I really like it and already have the accessories prepared - when I received my dies I spent a day cutting them out multiple times and decorating the trees :-). Quite fiddly but so worthwhile.
