Greetings Of The Season

Hi crafters!  I started with a piece of Pixie Sparkled card as my background.  I used Teal Marine Pixie sparkles all over and spritzed it with water.  Next I cut a bunch of different snowflakes out of white card (the Snowflake Collection set and the Festive Accessories set) and glued them randomly all over the background.  I added this piece to a larger piece of white card.  I cut the Season's Big Word die out of some leftover card from the Pixie Sparkle background.  I glued it to the bottom of the card and stamped the rest of the sentiment using the stamps from the set.  I nipped away the "s" from Season's and added the "Greeting of the" to the beginning of the sentiment.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  7 3/4"   in size.  All for now,  Sue x

Hi Sue. Another great sample for batch making, with various festive colour backgrounds and white snowflake design how can you not be on a winner, I found deep rich purple and gold last year a real colour combo to beat. Love to all today, hope our dear friends are recovering and feeling so much better. Hugs xxx

Good morning Sue and all.
A lovely sample to start the day. I don't have all of the dies but I'm sure I could use some of mine that are lying around idle.
I haven't been out of the house for ages but today I have a hospital appointment so maybe I'll get my Daughter to take me to Inspirations.
Have a good day everyone.
Marie P.

Good morning Sue
I love the idea of cutting various die cuts and sticking them as a background! It looks like you’ve used embossing paste. Today’s card is beautiful and in my favourite colours.

Good Morning Sue. Wow ... Talk about a clean and simple card this morning ... that looks like you have spent hours making ... I love this. Cut loads of snow flakes ... Make lots of backgrounds ... put them in a box and make them up on your knee watching tv. That's what I will do. This is a beautiful card. And you can make big ... small ... slim whatever size card you have to hand.
Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today. PLEASE KEEP STAYING SAFE.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Lovely card but I think I would have made the background larger to fit the whole card rather than have the white gap.
