Joy to the World...New Dies
I hope you have all seen the launch of Sue Wilson's 10 new festive dies over on her blog Particraft? These are a stunning addition IMHO, to the festive collection so I thought I would show a few cards made using them over the next few days.
To start with I thought I would share the Joy to the world die card I made, as you know by now I love the idea of having a die that will make more complex and batch cards for Christmas I think this is perfect for that!
I stared by die cutting the joy to the world die in coconut white foundation card, I cut a larger 2cm bored all the way round and whilst still in the die I inked through using scarlet woman colour cloud blending ink. I foam mounted this over a piece of rich red card to which I had added double sided adhesive sheet and Iced Snow.
next I added a few layers of coconut white and rich red embossing the final white layer with the new holly lattice A4 embossing folder.
To decorate the card I stamped the shaded poinsettia stamp to die for, designed by me as sue revealed on her blog, in perfect medium onto rich red card and heat embossed it with true white detail embossing powder. I stamped 2 of each size and cut them out with the matching die before pinching the petals to make a 3D flower in each size. I added a pearl embellishment in the centre and a bow tied with black cord (both from my stash).
I finished with a couple of stick pins I made form Sue;s stick pin elements set and some stick on pearl swirls for that extra opulence! This card could, honestly, be simplified for batch cards.
