Christmas Greetings

Hello bloggers!  Here is a great card for Christmas and really quick and easy to make!  I cut the Pine Panel from the Holly and Pine Floral Panels set three times into a piece of green card.  I added a sticky adhesive sheet to a piece of white card, then peeled the backing paper off and attached it to the back of the panel card.  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on all the remaining exposed adhesive.  Using the Poinsettia Trio die set, I cut two poinsettias.  I added them to the lower right corner of the card and added pearls to the centres and green leaves as  accents.  I cut the Christmas Greetings sentiment in red, then added it to the shadow die cut in white.  I attached them to the card with foam mounting tape.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  7 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue.
This is quite different and I'm not quite sure about it. I still have quite a few cards on order and I've not a clue what to do as time and postal strikes are against me, why do I wait so long every year - I'll never learn !!
Love to all, keep warm and safe xx said...

Morning Sue.
A brilliant card very busy.Thank you.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Morning Sue, what's not to love about a card with lots of sparkle and poinsettias? My favourite 'go to' for a pretty C card.

Hi Sue,

A lovely card what is more traditional than pine trees and poinsettias. Love the colours.

Hello Sue
This is very different I am not sure about it. My daughter has rang and rang the hospital and has made me an appointment for today I hope they can do something. Take care everyone.

Good morning Sue
Todays card is very different but fabulous! I was making Christmas cards yesterday with your deer family dies I had forgotten how beautiful they are! It is my plan to use some older dies with the new ones this year.

Hi Sue. This card is so different from your usual style and is so easy to make. I actually finished making all my Christmas cards for this year but I am sure there are a few people I have forgotten about so a quick and easy card like this would be perfect for them!

Good Morning all, todays card is certainly different and quite unusual but shows a different way to use a slim die, slim doesn't mean it can only be used that way although for me I think I would have used one of the others for the centre section.


Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Not sure on todays post - love the idea but was wondering if it would work for me with solid flowers to balance the other white space. Don't know....However, do love all the dies used...

Good morning Sue and all.

Not quite sure about this one as I don.t have the mold and it's too late for me to buy it. THERE IS A LOT TO LEARN FROM ALL YOUR POSTINGS AND THIS IS NO DIFFERENT IN THAT RESPECT.

Hi Sue, I remember this one from the launch in the summer. I liked it then and I like it now. It is different but in the best way and if it is as quick to make as you say then it's perfect for those of us who always have a last minute rush but the recipients would not know that, they would just think it was another wonderful creation.

Good Afternoon Sue. Hi Sue. I love the work that has gone into this card. But I too am not sure I want to recreate this one. I think for me it's a bit too leafy . No offence meant Sue and apologies for any taken. Thankyou.
Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today
Kind in regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds.
Please stay safe and well 🙏 everyone

Hi Sue. I too am not sure about this card. I think too much foliage for me. Thank you anyway. X
