Can you have Teal Christmas Cards? well I guess you can now!
I started with the Creative Expression 'Peace' die, and to be honest this is the first Sue Wilson die that
I haven't picked up and thought of a million possibilities with, after a bit of playing around I decided to use it in a tag style topper, went with teal for the accent colour because.....well because its teal and I love the colour, so I cut a tag shape to fit the die and then cut a small matt of white around it.
I then set about making the background and card itself, I cut a frame using two sizes of Spellbinders Grand Squares and then cut a teal square to go behind it, I then took my Eternal Rings Striplet die (creative expressions) and cut the piece of card that came out of the centre of the square when I made the frame, I think lined up the striplet die and cut it three times across the piece of card to make a lattice effect background. I then set about cutting some teal Mosaic Poinsettia dies again fro (CE) and cut them in three different sizes, three times each, I then offset them and stuck them together with cosmic shimmer PVA glue and added a pearl in the centre. I cut some foliage out of the Trailing Ivy die and some Impression Obsession fern bits and arranged that and the flowers in the corner, leaving a small one for the opposite corner.
I threaded a piece of American Seam Binding Ribbon to my tag to finish off.
its a little different so I will understand if you are not keen.
Tomorrows card is even more 'out of the ordinary for me!
Well I am going to try and keep busy today, got lots more cards to make!
