Rejoice In The Season

Hello crafters!  For today's card, I cut the Radiating Background twice, once out of antique gold card and once out of red card.  I cut the antique gold die cut into four pieces from centre to centre, leaving the corners intact.  I arranged the pieces behind the red die cut taping them in place so they showed nicely.  Next I cut a small multi-layered frame using the Round Corner Squares with a wide white base and thin frames of gold and red.  I added mounting foam to the frame then added a white backing piece.  I cut the Rejoice In The Season sentiment in black and glued it in the centre of the frame.  I attached the frame to the middle of the card then added two white poinsettias from the Poinsettia Trio die set as accents.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  7 1/2"  size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, another nice card today I like the rounded square frame you have created and sentiment which tones down the background.

Good Morning Sue. I love traditional colours for Christmas cards. And this is no exception. The poinsettias really set the card off. And I love how you have done the little pearls in the middle of them. Very lovely. Thankyou Sue.
Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds
Please stay safe and well 🙏

HOSPITAL appointment this morning. X RAY on my hip knee and pelvis. Just hope nothing is broken, cracked it fractured. Fingers crossed 😥 it's only bruised.

Hi Sue and everyone, ive literally just seen this card on TV as catching up with Jamies shows. I know I'm always so late lol. Very striking indeed, a great Christmas background and all rounder. Loved it in a circle frame too.
Hugs Donna xx

Hi Sue
Lovely card, I do like the radiating background but can’t make up my mind between it and the swirls, decisions, decisions

Ann hope all goes well with the X-ray
Steph hoping you feel a lot better soon

Love and hugs to everyone

That's a fabulous card, love it!

Wow, the radiating background looks so striking with the poinsettias!!

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, my comment on yesterday's woodpecker card seems to have disappeared, suffice to say I loved it. Today's card is most striking. I love the colours and the central panel but like Steph I find the radiating background affects my eyes, I am waiting for cataract ops so maybe I won't be affected so much when they are done.

Ann - fingers crossed the X-Ray shows nothing damaged.

Wonderful card Sue, love the design xx

Hi Sue Lovely Christmas card I like background dies in the Christmas colours and the lacy poinsettias

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I really love this die as it is so different from anything else. The great thing is that it does not scream Christmas so by changing the colours of the card that you use, I am sure that it would be great for any occasion for any time of year.


CCM said...

Elegant color combination and a different way to use the Radiating Background. Thanks for sharing, Sue.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.

I have really been taken with that shade of gold and red. I am going to attempt to replicate one of the others in this years launch in those colors that I just love.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
