FINAL CHRISTMAS CARD FOR 2016

Hi bloggers, thank you for popping by...

This is an 8"x8" white card base that I matted with a thin gold mirri then added a white mat that I'd embossed with the Star Swirls A4 Embossing Folder by SW for CE
From SW's 2015 Collection I cut 2 of the Snowflake Borders and one tag again using
gold mirri card.  The borders were adhered to the card and mounting foam was adhered to the tag and placed in the centre of the card.  I typed the sentiment then added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet to it, removed the backing and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Snow

Thank you for visiting and wishing you all a very happy Christmas and New Year
I'm having a break over this festive time and will be back in the New Year with some exciting news and new plans for my blog...

CHRISTMAS GREETINGS

Hi... thanks for popping by
This card was made for a commission and I decided to make it a circular card for a change!
It was very easy to put together once I had decided on what I would do.
I used a white card base and one of the pierced circle dies by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and cut the shape leaving a slight overhang at the top of the card to create a hinge.
Using a smaller circular die in the same range I cut this in a red glossy card from my stash.
I used the same card for the two die cut baubles by Memory Box.
Again I used a smaller circular die from the same range to create a final mat and embossed this using the A4 Star Swirls Embossing Folder by SW for CE.
I typed the sentiment onto white card then added some double sided adhesive sheet to it and used one the tags, again by SW for CE to cut it out and also used the larger tag for the red gloss background tag.  I removed the adhesive sheet from the sentiment and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Snow to it as well as adhering 3 small red gems.  The white pearls are by Creative Expressions and I adhered these near to the edge of the card

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hi... thank you for popping by

This is an 8"x8" white card base with a thin black mat.  I cut another piece of white card in two pieces, the larger card had double sided adhesive sheet on it and I removed the backing from that and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Iced Snow to cover it.  I added mounting foam to the back and adhered to the top part of the card
I also covered the smaller piece of card with double sided adhesive sheet then sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Sprinkles.  I put double sided tape on the back and adhered that to the lower part of the card
I used the Aurora Star Die by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions to create the main focal point in two black and one gold and cut two black bases and one gold base card.  I then scored the three bases and using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue I adhered to the scored bases.  To maintain the dome effect I used a large 'dollop' of 3D Collall Glue by Crafter's Companion to the centre of all three stars and placed them onto the card
I typed the sentiment as this was for a very good friend of mine and I wanted to make it personal.  I covered this with double sided adhesive sheet, removed the backing and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Sprinkles
I used the narrowest Stitched Flags from the Frames and Tags by Sue  Wilson for Creative Expressions for the sentiment then the smallest die again from the Frames and Tags - Pierced Flags by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions for the black mat

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Hi... thanks for popping by...
I started with an A4 white card, folded it in half to create an A5 card.
Blue card was used to make the frame, this is from one of the shadow boxes.  I added mounting foam to the back to give height.
I used a balloon punch and a star punch to add to the card and wrote 7 on the balloons also adding a small white line to highlight and attached strands of ribbon behind the balloons.
The letters and numbers were from a die set, cut out in white but for the name, Harry, I also cut the letters in black to give a shadow.
The console was from a picture in my stash and this had mounting foam added to the back and placed on the card. I also added a few silver stars around it.
Happy Birthday was embossed in black and a few more stars added around the sentiment

SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT!


Hi.... thank you for popping by

I thought, for a change, I would post something completely different to the ongoing flurry of Christmas cards!
I also make and decorate celebration cakes (Sweet Celebration Tiers), actually it is my husband and I who make the celebration cakes (he has been trained so well :)).  Steve is a very clever and talented man and I am very limited to what I can do because of having rheumatoid arthritis from a very early age.  I do make all the sugar work and decorations and 'dress' the cake

Thank you for visiting

I always look forward to reading your comments
