Sue's Christmas Shows...

Happy Christmas Friday,

Sue Wilson is launching the One Day Special this evening on Hochanda at 8p with her fabulous Christmas Die range.  Todays card uses 1 of 2 new festive dies that will be available on the show, this card features the Happy New Year die which includes 2 and a dies so you can add this message to the Matching Merry Christmas ( I have a card featuring with tomorrow).

I stared with a pice of velum which I coloured using purple violet and midnight blue pixie powders.  Next I em,bossed it sing the snow flurry 8x8 embossing folder.  I then smoothed Pearl Lustre Metallic gilding wax over the raised area so that the pattern comes to the front.








I cut the new year die twice in midnight and vintage god pearl foundation card.  I added these to a matching set of stitched flags and shadowed them.















I cut a wreath shape with the double pierced circles set B.  I then added a spare of poinsettias cut with more of the coloured velum using the poinsettia additions die set.

I added small silver dazzlers in the centre of the flowers and some thing satin ribbon form my stash.  A couple of matching stick pins and a spare of detail that sets off the sentiment.



A few layers of midnight, Silver and amethyst foundation card to finish the card.

Don't forget Sue will be back on tomorrow at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm.



Enjoy...

  34. Hi John. A really fantastic card today. It looks really fairy like possibly because of the way you have used velum for the background and the poinsettias. I wouldn't have thought of using pixie powders on velum had you not suggested it. What a very good idea.
