Well after the busy times of the last week its back to the Creative Expressions design team project. The design team this month were asked to create Christmas cards using the Sue Wilson die and stamp range. I loved this challenge and created a set of 5, hopefully, different cards. Today's card is also one that was featured on Sue shows a couple of weeks ago on Create and Craft.
I loved making this card as the layering of such an intricate, and yet easy to cut, die gives the most stunning effects. I started by cutting a circle frame and simply using the die cuts around this to create a full 3D wreath. The wonderful thing about the Sue Wilson Holly die is that you get the same sprig going both ways making flourishes so much easier as you get the left and right hands.
I added the wreath to a sheet of vintage gold foundation card (for those who asked the foundation card will be available on Sues show on the 16th however I will try and find other suppliers for those who have asked) which I embossed with the quilted flower A4 embossing folder.
I simply added this to a matted and layered card base in the darker green, a bit of the red to balance the design and finished with the vintage gold. The bow is made with the solid and trellis paper bow dies form Sue Wilson. Finally a die cut from the believe die and finished.
As per if you could click over to the Creative Expressions blog and leave a comment I would be grateful (got to show them I am worth it as the advert goes!) lol Click HERE to see the CE blog and what other creations the design team have come up with this week!
