Christmas Sue 2...
I hope some of you managed to catch the fabulous launch show with Sue Wilson last night ion not don't forget you can watch on catchup at www.hochanda.com. Sue is back today at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm.
I promised I would show today the card I made featuring the 2 new dies launched for the shows and this card shows really well how they can be used together too take a fab christmas card.
I simply made the background by embossing a piece of midnight blue pearl foundation card using the nordic quilt 8x8 embossing folder. Next I added enchanted gold metallic gilding polish over the top the enchanted gold is a fabulously useful shade as it is gold on dark card and white gold / platinum on light card 2 products in one!
Next I cut a frame of gold and midnight pearl card using the double pierced circles set A and B. I mounted this over a piece of acetate then added the merry christmas and the Happy new year ( which has the and a included in this set) I cut both again in the gold and midnight using the darker colour as a shadow.
I cut the background into a set of frames and used the double pierced squares to make mats for each layer in gold.
A bright card but if you can't be bright and a little gaudy at Christmas.
