Christmas Greetings

Hello crafters!  I started today's card by cutting the Swirls Background out of both white and black.  I used the black die cut as an offset shadow behind the white one, then added a red card backing to it.  I cut it diagonally then added a white cross piece to both of the cut edges.  I used mounting foam on the backs of both halves to raise it and attached it to another piee of white card with a sticky adhesive piece placed in the gap between the two halves.  I cut the Christmas Greetings sentiment in both red and black and shadoed it, then added it to the shadow backing piece which I cut in white.  I peeled the backing piece off of the adhesive strip and attached the sentiment, then filled in the remaining sticky adhesive area with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I cut two slowers in white from the Poinsettia Trio die set and added them at the bottom of the card along with some white accent pieces from the Foliage Pieces die set.  The card was ompleted with white, red and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  8 1/4"  in size.

Just to let you know what some of our other demonstrators are up to:

Good Morning Sue and all.
Nice to see you posting Steph. Hope you are getting well.

A lovely card from you again Sue. I wonder how you keep managing to get your creations done and ready for posting every day.
I'd love to follow you round for just 1 day but wouldn't know whether to bring my cane, my walking frame or my wheelchair,and of course someone to push the chair and repeat what you say in case I can't hear you.
Really Sue, you never cease to amaze me and are an early start to my every day for which I thank you
Marie P.

Good Morning Sue. A different Sue card today ... but we can still tell it's you. It's a very modern card and I am sure my granddaughter and her partner would love this to decorate their new home with at Christmas. And it will match their decor. Well done ✔ Sue and as always a very big thankyou.
Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.

Hi Sue. What a very modern looking Christmas card today, ideal for those who are not especially fond of the more traditional style. Love the poinsettia trio (this was the one I won in the draw)


June Smith said...

Afternoon Sue and all Wilsonettes, sorry I had to go out early this morning and my PC seems to be affected by the heat this afternoon. A beautiful card, I love the black and white background which you can just see as it is offset slightly, beautiful sample.

Welcome back Steph, hope your feeling better xx

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

Hi Sue, if something can be both traditional and contemporary then this is surely it. Love the red & white and the poinsettias- traditional, the swirls background and the design - contemporary. A beautiful card.
