Frosty Blue Christmas

Good Morning,
Thank you once again my lovely friends for stopping by today, the numbers are going up!
Guess what I am so excited to share this with you, I had my first proper sale to a lovely lady who
asked on facebook if anyone made cards, 4 people recommended me! which surprised me, I made the card and decorating the box and personalised it, she was over the moon, she placed another order straight away! I am just so pleased! x
Todays card, I used my Austrian Collection background die from Creative Expressions to cut out a white die cut that I placed on a piece of sticky sheet, I then took two blue, super fine glitters and a silver one and arranged the different colours in a pattern, (starting with the lightest first.
It gives such a lovely sparkly background. I then started making a small spray of flowers in colours that complimented the glitters, I then added a small silver Christmas sentiment and some blue pearl gem stones in each corner.
The card was then mounted onto blue card, then silver and then onto a white background.
Only trouble is I now have glitter everywhere!
I hope you like todays card, its a bit different, but we all like a change don't we!
please leave your comments for me to read, I try not to peek during the day and then I can get a
surprise in the evening when I read all of your lovely messages.
12 today, another record! xxx
Crafty hugs to all of you,
Sandra xxxxx
Below is a closer view of the flowers x


  1. Well Sandra, that's you got your start!!! It only takes one to order then there will be more. I am so pleased for you, it has given you that little burst of confidence that you needed. Your cards are stunning and the lady proved it to you that they will sell, that's why she ordered more. Today's is out of this world, the colours are gorgeous, die cut with your glitters and then your spray of flowers is just stunning. How special is that? I love it. Hazel x

  2. Hi Sandra and friends. This is stunning, you have incredible patience to do the different coloured glitters in the small spaces, but WOW it's worth it. Any chance of a video of your flower bouquet? Not surprised that you were recommended and that you have another order from the same lady. I hope that you had a fabulous lunch yesterday. Sue xxx

  5. Hi Sandra. CONGRATULATIONS my lovely :)) This is just the beginning, I knew this lady would want more, word is going to spread like wild fire now : ))
    Todays card is gorgeous, I love the blue/silver, and of course your flowers are stunning as usual. A beautiful card for any time of the year. Are you going to show the gorgeous matching boxes that you make to go with these cards? (Sorry Paul, I know that will mean more photos for you to take!)
    By the way I have left my comment on yesterdays post now (sorry it was late) so in fact you have 13 comments.
    I am going to make everyone very envious now. Sandra gave me the stunning white/silver poinsettia Christmas card that she showed here on Friday 5th Dec. : )) (thank you again for it, and the lovely words inside, Sandra)
    Thanks for a lovely time yesterday, I will not be playing with elastic bands in public any more though!!! I know we are busy with our families until the New Year but I can't wait until we can get together to craft/chat again. Take care my lovely. xx

Hi Sandra ,How wonderful you started to sell some cards and I'm sure you will.All your creations are really lovely and I have a question :Could you possible make me one of this card here ?, It's absolutely stunning and would be great for a anniversary card to my hubby.

Very queries about MrsB and her elastic band :-)
