From Me To You

Hi crafters!  I pulled out my Classic Weaving dies to start today's card.  I use red and white card cut and woven with the weaving dies to make the background.  I cut the Slimline Decorative Oval Aperture Trio in white and added it with foam over the woven background.  I cut a frame using the Slimline Decorative Holly Frames and added it over the trio aperture with mounting foam.  I cut two of the wreaths from the Festive Accessories set and added red bows that I glittered with Berry Sparkle PVA glue  to both of them.  I added the wreaths in the two outer apertures, then cut the From Me To You in black.  I glued it to the centre opening.  The card was completed with white and red mats and layers.   The finished dimensions are  4 3/4"  x  9 1/4"   in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I really love your weaving dies as they give such a great backdrop for this sort of sample today, looks fantastic with the wreaths etc and in the trio of circles, perfect card for that special person in your life. Thank you x

Good Morning Sue and all.
A lovely card Sue and perhaps useful for batch making.
The sentiment is good for almost anyone and the colours are Christmassy.
Thank you Sue.

I love these and I forget I have them so they often get over looked and then all of a sudden ... boom ... Here they making a great background.I will be having a go with these later just to give them an airing. Thankyou Sue.

Hi Sue

Now there’s a blast from the past with the classic weaving dies. I’ll have to dig mine out and use them soon. They look great with your new Christmas dies and slimline cards.

Love Helen xxx

Hi Sue, I liked this card on launch and although I don't have the weaving dies I may have some papers suitable to create something similar.
