I'm not sure if this counts as a Blue Friday, is Aqua in the blue family lol. I wanted to show one of my favourite colour combinations for Christmas for those who don't like the traditional red, green and golds etc. I know this is a slightly unusual colour scheme but I just think, to me at least, it works with the beautiful snowflake deboss die form Sue's new collection.
I stared by cutting the largest die in the set from the centre of a piece of coconut white card which I then embossed using the snowflake lattice embossing folder. Next I cut and embossed dies 2 and 3 from the set which in aqua card which gives this stunning snowflake deboss. I rubbed pewter gilding wax over the deboss area and polished it off using a dry wet wipe to make it shine. Next I cut the smallest die in the set form a further piece of coconut white and , after cutting each piece to be slightly larger to give a border, from mounted teach piece together.
I added 3mm white stick on pearls to each of the snowflakes, then to the centres of the debossed snowflakes and finally added one of the pearl snowflake swirl stick on embellishments form Creative Expressions to the side.
The sentiment, from the new CE Christmas Sentiment set, was stamped and embossed in detail silver embossing powder onto coconut white foundation card. I cut this out with the smallest die in the pierced flags set and mounted it onto a die cut flag using the medium die in the set.
