Hello Friend

Hello bloggers!  I selected a piece of pixied card from my stash to use for today's card.  I used Emerald Green, Olive Green and Golden Mint Pixie Powders on it.  Next I used the Poinsettia Scalloped Border and cut four of the scalloped lattice die in the set.  I cut two in white and two in black.  I shadowed each of the white die cuts with the black die cuts.  I glued them to the top and bottom edges of the pixied card background.  I cut two thin strips of the piexied card and added black and white mats to them and glued them to the top and bottom edges of the pixied card.  I cut the Hello Friend in black and glued it to a white shadow backing then added it to the centre of the card.  Using the Pinwheel Florals, I made a white flower and added it to the lower corner with foliage as accents.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" 8 1/4"  in size.

Just a quick note to let you know that the January die release will begin tomorrow morning at 6am here on the blog.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue. Oh a beautiful card today. I love how you have used the Poinsettia lattice border. I bought this set before Christmas and put
it down on my work top. When I came to use it for my cards I couldn't find it I searched all over for it. When I cleared away after Xmas I FOUND IT. Typical. Well at least you have given me a reason to open it and have a go with it. Thankyou Sue Looking forward to the new launch tomorrow. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today. Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds.
Please stay safe and well 🙏 everyone
