Christmas Friday...

Happy Friday,

Today I am workshopping and demoing at Daisy Jewels and crafts in Coventry and this is the card We will be making.  Therefore I thought it would make a perfect Christmas Friday.

This is a another card made using the fab pixie Powders this time in midnight blue, Peacock and white pearl.  Im hoping the ladies will be adventurous in their colour choices I can't wait to see them made in lots of different mixes!

The card uses the Poinsettia mini background, poinsettia additions set and the new star merry christmas dies.

I embossed the background in velum using the snow flurry 8x8 embossing folder.

a few more pics as I don't want to give all the instruction for a workshop card lol


Enjoy...

    A beautiful card, I love the colours. That embossing folder looks fabulous in the background, a bit like Sue's paved pearl technique without the effort.

    What a beautiful card John, with the colours that you have used it is so spring like in feel. The mini Poinsettia background die is so beautiful and makes a beautiful card everytime. Thank you flower for showing such a lovely result using the pixie powders as i do like the less is more style of them being used.

  33. Hi John
    Beautiful card today. Lucky ladies in Coventry. Loved this folder on another card you made. However, it wasn't called Snow Flurry, but I can't remember what it's proper name was, but it's out of stock most everywhere.

  34. Hi John. Love the colours of today's card and as I received that die yesterday, there is no reason why I shouldn't be able to create something similar.
