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

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