Last year I launched a Christmas Friday and it seemed quite popular along with allowing me a specific day to show my Christmas Cards and projects early! I am resurrecting this as although its only September it is getting closer.
Also This months design Team challenge over at Creative Expressions was all about Christmas and I made too many cards for my weekly stint! lol so here is another offering form the same range. Also tomorrow and Sunday Sue Wilson is presenting all of her Christmas Dies on Create And craft Click her Blog HERE for show times. So we all get an opportunity to see the full range and to see what wonderful creations Sue has come up with, with these dies!
Today's card then is my first presentation for Christmas Friday and is one of the five or six cards I made for my place on the CE Design team (for details on how to apply for the design team see Wednesdays post for the link).
I started by die cutting a circle in a few sheets of Coconut white, Red and vintage silver foundation card and cut them into increasing sized squares. The front white panel I embossed using the Quilted Flowers A4 embossing folder I then simply foam mounted each layer so that the circle remains through each sheet whilst the edges overlap.
I then die cut 2 of the holly swirls dies, these are great as the design has 2 separate dies which make the branches mirror each other, and added apple red twinkles as the berries.
The remainder is pretty simple I added three of the new satin flowers from Creative Expressions in the corner which, to me at least, remind me of Christmas roses. There is also a piece of Acetate at the back which shows the dimension between the layers and stops the aperture looking flat. I added the finished front onto a 20 x 20cm red card blank onto which I have stamped the sentiment 'Tis the Season from a stamp set by Sam Poole.
