Hello my friends! how are you all?
Well we are at the end of another week and just 2 weeks from the big event! Aaaagh I hear you all shout.......me too......still whizzing round and round in circles. I think someone put me on a Merry go Round and I can't get off because it won't stop!
OK .....another card based on creative expressions and Sue Wilson dies again....I have to say I love her dies.
I used a Crafters Companion embossing folder for the holly background.... stamped first with the Merry Christmas also Crafters Companion.
The tile is a double layer as the top layer is cut from the white card with the outer edge in place.It's a two piece die.Underneath I did another layer but this time I just embossed with the inner die first and then cut the embossed piece out with the outer die. It was a bit of a juggle to get the pressure right so as to see the outline but not cut into my card at all...even with the rubber mat in place. This was so that I could see where the holly leaves would be and colour them in on the embossed piece, which I did.... with copics and a 'wink of stella clear' on top. ......Then I mounted one on top of the other and then on to my card.
Gems for the berries! Holly bottom right...... and that's it!
If I did it again I would try maybe grey for the sentiment as I think it is a bit too bold in the black.
Still got a list of chores (note they have progressed from jobs now) in front of me and housework is on it too...sadly neglected of late....best not to wear my specs then I can't see the dust! So by Monday I hope to have them all crossed off the list bar icing the cake.How are your jobs coming along?
Thank you for calling in...I know you are all busy too, I have passed a few of you this last week..... whizzing.... just like me................and then someone put the Merry go Round in the playground! Guess a few of you might be leaping on there with me too. Bags I the horse with the Gold saddle!......please....
Your time and lovely comments are all so much appreciated and I hope you will visit again next week when I will have some more cards to share.
Have a lovely weekend everyone......whatever the weather and wherever you are (try saying that after a few mulled wines).
Yawn yawn...time for bed.....night night
Love Carole xx
