These two cards have been made with the Sue Wilson Netted Star background die. Both are identical except that one has the Red Velvet card in the foreground whilst the other has it as the background. Which do you prefer? Poinsettia were made using the Poinsettia Britannia 3 die set.
The centre of the flowers had gold Tonic Nuvo Drops to make the gems.
One card many different ways. This card used the Stampin’ Up Stylish Christmas stamp set, using the Poppy Parade and Old Olive dies. The swirl was embossed using classic gold. I do love the tonic embossing powders as they give a lush smooth look when heated. The Poinsettia and holly leaves were fussy cut and layered on to the card, which was in turn layered on to glossy gold card. The background was made using Poppy Parade card and embossed using the Stampin’ Up Holly embossing folder.
This is a second cad made using the Stampin’ Up Stylish Christmas Stamp set, but using Poppy Parade as the main colour this time, and a striped background stamped with Poppy Parade too, Holly Leaves using Old Olive, which I find is a gentle green with many uses.
Today has been one of those days when it is day – but it has remained dull the whole time as if someone had forgotten to put on the lights. So what do you do when that happens? Yes, you make cards. I still haven’t made all my Christmas Cards, but not panicking. There are always bought cards if I have not made enough.
This one was made for my Sisters Nanny-in-Law as a special request. I always find it a lot of pressure when you are asked to specifically make a card for someone. So today I got out the Sue Wilson Poinsettia Dies and co-ordinating stamps, cut out and put Tonic glitter in the centre. Frames were cut in mirror gold using Sue Wilson dies again. All glued together and stuck down ready for Nanny.
