Good morning. Twelve more days to the Big Day. I'm hoping all of you have been Good Little Bloggers so Santa won't have to bring you a rock for your sock. I think I've been pretty nice this year. I helped Santa out when I was visiting the shops on our trip to Florida, so I've told him he can give me a pass this holiday. We'll see if he listens. All I want for Christmas is to be with those I love best in the world. Good Health for my loved ones would be a bonus gift. Oh yes, World Peace & Kindness would be a marvelous gift too, but with the world leaders as they seem to be - and all the meanness that goes on, I don't see that happening. But...we live in Hope!
Here's today's card:
-Die-Namites Curly Poinsettia as the focal point. Diecut with red c/s, then a green glitter paper. Carefully glued the red over the green diecut, then snipped away the red curliques (see this great video here...) Pam shows how to do this technique. I saw a simply stunning card done by the fabulous Loll using the Memory Box Glowing Candle die and Loll kindly provided the video link. I want to try this technique with the candle die, as I love that die. In the meantime though, I had the Die-namite die out on the desk and thought the technique would work well on this. I didn't fuss with putting the inside bits back in the outline as did Loll & Pam. Give this video a peek, I think you'll enjoy it.
- SU Square Lattice EF on the raised textured panel.
- Sentiment stickers colored with Copics in various shades of G & YG to compliment the green glitter curliques. The sentiment was silver before coloring.
Hope you enjoyed this one...I like it.
Will be back later this afternoon with a post for the Friday Fun Day Challenge, so I hope you can pop back for a 2nd visit today.
Off to the salt mines.. (an old American expression meaning 'get your duff in gear and do some work'!). Come again when you have time for some hot chocolate. It's the weather for it. Hugs.
