Happy Christmas

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Star Swirls Embossing Folder.

I cut the outer die from Sue Wilson's Wise Men Mini Striplet out of Vintage Gold Card and both the dies together out of Milk Card.

I cut Sue's Happy Christmas Die out of Vintage Gold Card.

I cut a pair of Sue's Star Sprays out of Vintage Gold Card. I made a flower by cutting a couple of dies from Sue's Classic Poinsettia Die Set out of Milk Card and the same 2 sizes in Sue's Classic Poinsettia - Open Petals Die Set out of Vintage Gold Card. I've given up completely gluing these together as it takes ages and is quite messy using CS Glue so I only glue them in the centres - I don't think it matters one jot! I shaped the petals, glued the sets together using CS Dries Clear Glue and added a 5mm Cream Pearl.
I assembled the card as usual as shown adding some more Cream 5mm Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Don't forget, I'm offering 10% off all of Sue's Dies on my website till midnight tonight. Remember, free postage on orders £20 and above (UK only). Postage to Europe is calculated based on weight. Discount will be calculated at checkout. Thanks for all your orders over the weekend. I am out all day today from early till early evening so won't be able to post them till Tuesday. Many apologies for the delay.

I'll be doing the draw for the winner of Freebie Friday when I get back this evening. Remember to pop back and have a look to see if you've won if you left a comment!

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  29. Antique Gold - I thought it was more a mink colour from the photos - I was just about to say I liked the mink and milk colour combo.
