Hello & Welcome....
Here we are again with another Festive Friday, where have those weeks gone?!
I had planned to make an all white Christmas card for today but as you can see by the photograph it didn't happen
  • I made a top folding 7" square white card base and on checking my card stock came across this really pretty delicate ecru glitter card so that was my all white card blown out of the window!  I cut a smaller panel of this card and adhered it to the card base
  • Another smaller panel was cut in white card and I used one of the double pierced oval dies to die cut the centre then embossed the card.  As this was going to be added to the glitter card I used a PVA acrylic glue to adhere it in place
  • I then die cut and embossed the oval centre piece, applied a dries clear glue onto the snowflakes and covered them with glitter jewels 3D foam was added to the back of the oval and smaller pieces into the centre of the snowflakes and adhered to the card.  I die cut the sentiment 3 times on white card, glued them together, applied acrylic glue to the back and placed it in the centre of the oval frame
  • Six poinsettias were die cut in white card, glue applied to the centre of  three flowers and the remaining 3 were added to them.  I used spray glue over each one and sprinkled glitter jewels on them
  • To complete I added a piece of white tulle just under the two snowflakes then a double bow using 3mm double faced satin ribbon on top of the tulle and, finally,  one of the flowers on top .  One other flower was glued to the top right of the card and I decided to double up with the remaining third flower.  I added the crystal centres to each flower and have yet to add a verse
