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

Thank you for visiting and you're welcome to  leave me a comment or a question about today's card
All for now

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
