A White and Gold Christmas Card

Hi there, how you doin'? Any Joey fans from friends may even say that like he does! I hope your Friday is going/has gone well. I have been really busy finishing a work project so I cannot believe how quickly the week has gone! Foe those of my blogging friends from the states may I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Today's card was a last minute make as my neighbour wanted some cards to send overseas.
Here it is:

I began with a piece of gold metallic card stock from American Crafts. Then layered a piece of white card stock which I paper pierced on top of that. The top piece of white card stock I firstly cut with one of Sue Wilson's French Collection Auvergne dies - the largest frame, then put it through a Sue Wilson A4 Art Deco embossing folder. I then coloured the edge with a gold metallic pen.

I used two dies from the same die to create a frame, I put that to the side for the time being. Then I used the Creative Expressions Arched Swirls stamp and a Ranger Perfect Medium ink pad to create the central image which I coloured using Gold Perfect Pearls, and I then sprayed fixative on it so the image wouldn't smudge.

I then used the Austrian collection tag die, cutting this twice layering them together and adding a Happy Christmas peel off on top. Next I put all the bits together. Adding the frame first, then the stamped image (again cut out with the Auvergne die) and then the tag in the centre.

Then I made the poinsettia flower using the medium and small die combined, making it from white and gold card stock.

Having created it I glued it in place with some gold Tulle.

Then using the three petal tiny dies I created the small flower and added that to the left hand bottom edge of the card then added rhinestone to the centre of the flowers.

Here are the main ingredients that I used to make this card:

Thanks for stopping by today to read my blog, I hope you have a great Thanksgiving day if you celebrate it, other than that have a Fantastic weekend.

A Silver Christmas Bauble Card

Hello there my blogging friends and family. How have you been today? It's been a really strange day here, rainy, very overcast and then it went very dark, but cleared up a little just before evening set in. Frits managed to get out on the tractor just before the rain set in to slash the paddocks to tidy them up. He did a great job!

I have one of my favourite cards to show you today. I loved making it and I think it looks gorgeous - let me show it to you....

Don't you think this card is just yummy?

I first cut a silver metallic piece of card stock from an American Crafts 12 x 12 card stock pad to fit onto my white card stock base. Then I cut a white card stock mat on top of that which I paper pierced.

Then the top piece of white card stock I cut multiple times with an Elizabeth Craft Design Sprig with Berries die. Then I used the Sue Wilson Vintage Bauble die, some more white and silver card stock to create the centre piece of the card.

I used the Sue Wilson Austrian Border, Corner and Tag die to create the sentiment piece, using a Just Rite stamp, memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and some more silver card stock. I die cut it again in white card stock and fussy cut it out placing it on foam pads on top of the silver tag I had previously die cut out.

I used all the pieces of sprigs that I had cut out, added glue to them then covered with Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow before placing in the top left area of the card. I then used a Deco pearl paint pen to add faux pearls all over the spaces around the leaves. Then added the Bauble, sentiment, a ribbon tied into a bow on top of which I placed a sparkle thingy I had in my stash.

The main ingredients I used to make this card were:

A ring accordion Christmas Card

Hello good blogging friends and family. I trust all is well with you and you have enjoyed your Wednesday.
I have another Christmas card to show you.
Here it is:

I made the base of the card using an Elizabeth Craft Design die and some metallic red card stock from an American Crafts 12 x 12 card stock. I cut a circle with white card stock using the 3inch circle die from another ECD die set. Then stamped a Flourishes die in Tuexedo black ink and coloured it with my copic sketch markers. Then fussy cut the image and stuck it to the white circle die cut. I hand wrote the words and used a Deco paint pearl pen to make faux pearls around the edge.

Here is the card opened up. It shows a sentiment on the second panel and a La La Land digi stamp on the last/third panel. This too was coloured with my copics.

Here's a close up of the La La Digi image I used.
He;s really cute I think.

Here are the main ingredients I used to make my card:

A Red and White Christmas Card with a faux pearl frame

Hello how are you today? It has been a cooler day for us today and a little rain fall to boot. We are away this time next week at the start of our overseas trip to New York and then Europe. Firstly we have a couple of days in Sydney with two shows to see at the theater before we leave on Thursday for the states.

Today's card is another Christmas card in red and white - my current favourite Christmas colours.
Here it is:

The card was made of white card stock on top of which I cut a mat of scarlet Kaisercraft weave card stock. Then cut some white card stock and cut out the centre piece using the smallest die of the Sue Wilson Vienna die, then  I put the white card stock layer through the rows of bows embossing folder.

Then I made a frame for the centre of the card using the Vienna die again. I added it to the card on foam pads to raise it for dimension. Then I stamped my sentiment on white card stock with a memento black tuxedo ink pad and cut it out with the centre die from the Sue Wilson Salzburg die. Then I added crystal stickles to the outer rim and stuck it

I then added faux pearls on top of the red mat layer on the main piece of the card using a Deco paint pearl pen.

I then made a couple of poinsettias using the Sue Wilson, Classic and Mosaic poinsettia dies and more red and white card stock.

I also cut a couple of leaves using the Petite Vinery die and putting some more crystal stickles glitter on them.

These are the main ingredients I used ot make this card:

Thanks very much for stopping by today, I hope you like this Christmas card and you are having a great day.
