Good morning!  Thank you for popping by

I loved making this Christmas card, especially as it's going to be winging its way to my much loved auntie in Canada!

Whilst I know the colours are not of the traditional ones you expect to see I so love the delicacy of the aqua card and tend to use it quite often!

The dies are from the 2015 collection by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.  I've also used Iced Snow and Diamond Sprinkles from their range too.  I also added a few silver sequins, from my stash,  onto the background

The card is an 8"x8"

Have a great weekend and thank you for visiting

Hi... thanks for popping by

I made this card for a blog challenge

I started with an A4 white card base, scored to make an A5 size card then scored the top piece to create a fold and trimmed the card at an angle as shown

I then embossed another piece of white card using a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities EL-008 embossing folder

This was then covered with Metallic Wax Patina Copper, 'polishing' when covered.  Mounting foam was added to the back of the card and attached to the card inside as shown

The clock faces are from my stash and attached to the card with brads by Hobby House, as are the two metal clocks

To finish I typed the sentiment and gently added a little contrasting colour to it

All for now

Thank you for visiting

Hi, thanks for popping by
Using a white card base I added thin layers of black and white card finishing with black card

 I then embossed a pretty pink paper from my stash and distressed the edges
I coloured a piece of tack cloth using a distress ink pad in Victorian Velvet by Ranger and adhered this to the card as well as creating a more jiggered edge to the bottom right side
In black card I cut and embossed a circle using one of my 'old' dies from Spellbinders and adhered it on top of the tack cloth

The sentiment sat on a white on white cut and embossed design by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and I lightly coloured part of it using the Victorian Velvet ink pad

I made several flowers in various shades of pink, cut and embossed 1 white and 2 black  flourishes.  These were then positioned onto my card  as well as a few crystal stems

Thank you for visiting...
