Noel

Hello bloggers!  I started with a piece of white card and used the Cerulean Blue waterclour ink randomly across it.  I used a gold paint pen and tapped it with a ruler to get a splatter of gold across the card.  Using the Classic Poinsettia die set, I made three poinsettias of differing sizes out of white vellum.  Before assembling the flowers, I used Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish on the petals.  I attached the flowers in a cluster in the corner, then added Evergreen Branches cut out of white as accents.  I cut the Noel die out of Antique Gold card and added an offset shadow cut from gold Mirror card.  I glued the sentiment to the top of the card.  The card was completed with white and antique gold mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  X  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now,  Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a lovely card this morning, I like the watercolour inks and have a few of them, they give such a depth of colour to your project, and with the gold drops scattered around it makes a lovely backdrop.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue and everyone a very beautiful card I love the shimmer of gold on the flowers and the gold speckles in the background. Not sure that I could pull off this look, but it does look fab.

Have a good day.

This is another one for me that I’d like to see in real life I think
I love vellum poinsettia and use them every year with the other sets that match the classic ones

Good Morning Sue. A lovely fresh looking modern type of Christmas card today. Personally I prefer the traditional kind ... But I know this modern type suits quite a lot of the younger generation. I love how you say tap the gold pen to make the splattered little dots. I tried it ... once ... what a mess it went all over the place except the card I was working on lol. So I gave that a miss. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
PLEASE KEEP STAYING SAFE 🙏 🙏 🙏
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds

I like the flower arrangement in the corner but the smudged background is not for me.

Hi Sue. Love this card with the random splash of watercolour (it's quite hard to be random). I would usually use silver with blue but you have shown that gold works with blue just as well!

A modern background for some traditional poinsettias. I keep forgetting to use vellum for my flowers, but it does work well. Thank you Sue.
