Hi Bloggers.

A day of catching up for me today. My Craft Room is a tip - Again!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spread some CS Frosty Dawn Sparkle Texture Paste through the Nordic Christmas Mask onto Coconut White Card and put aside to dry.

I cut dies 1, 2 and 4 from the Justrite Joy Oval Frame Dies out of Coconut White Card and die 3 out of Milk Card. I double embossed the #4 die cut and the Joy die cut using Clear Perfect Medium and CS Frosty Dawn Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder.

I cut some Poinsettias out of Coconut White Card using the Justrite Multi-Step Poinsettia Dies. I double embossed them using Clear Perfect Medium and CS Frosty Dawn Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I paired them up and added some 3mm and 5mm White Pearls to the centres.

I cut Sue Wilson's Berry Sprigs out of Coconut White Card and Sue's Pine Twigs out of Milk Card.

I added a mat of Milk Card and then added a Coconut White Card to complete another proper card!

  18. Hi Julia
    A beautiful card. We returned our visitor to Kent yesterday, the motorways were kind and didn't cause delay. So I was able to start watching the recordings of your shows in the evening. It is lovely to spend time with my sister-in-law, but I did miss watching Hochanda and crafting.

  21. Good morning Julia,
    OH WOW this card is stunning, just so beautiful. I love the colour that you have used of the paste and embossing powders because it has made a stunning card out of plain cardstock. I do like the milk and white combination as it has given the design a beautiful look all of its own. Thank you flower for such a beautiful piece of work,
