Warmest Wishes

 Hello there my crafty friends!  I started with a piece of white card.  I used the Elemental Swirls stamp and inked it with a clear Perfect Medium pad and stamped it randomly all the way around the edge of the card.  I used Detail white embossing powder on it, then heat embossed it.  Next I inked the centre of the card with Peacock Feathers and used Salty Ocean Distress Inks around the edges of the card.  I cut one large tree and two small trees from the Winter Trees die set.  I added glue to them and coated them with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I attached the tall tree on the left side and the two smaller trees in the right corner.  I cut the Wishes die out of white card and glued it to the centre of the card.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment and cut it out with the tag die in the set.  I attached it with mounting foam above the Wishes sentiment.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  7 3/4"  in size.

Just a quick note to let you know that I will be doing the September Die Release Blog Launch starting tomorrow morning at 6am.  I hope you will e able to join us then.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
Happy Monday everyone x
Beautiful x
Is the Elemental Swirls an older stamp? I’m sure it is and I’m sure I have it! The white swirls and trees look amazing in contrast to the fabulously coloured backdrop of Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean x
I now have to spend the day trying to contain my excitement for the September launch x

Good morning Sue and all.
I love this card, especially that gorgeous back-ground. I do wonder sometimes if I'm on the right page as I had no idea we were having a new launch. I guess my age is catching up on me as my memory is getting awful.
I'm missing Steph's comments and hope she is OK
Have a great day and a good launch.

Hi Sue, I really like this card and the sparkly trees against the beautiful blue backdrop make me think of those very cold but sunny days we sometimes get in winter.

Hi Sue. WOW !!! What a gorgeous Christmas card !!! I love the colours you have used. I have always loved the swirly stamp you have used for your background. I don't have that one but I do have the other lovely swirly one that you designed at the same time. It would make a beautiful background just as this one does. I love the Tree dies. They look so sparkly and Christmassy. Great sentiment dies to. Thank you.
