Periwinkle & White!

Morning my friends, so good to have you visit today. Hope you are all safe and well?

For todays post I wanted just a simple looking Christmas card but one that looked elegant at the same time, so needless to say out cam Sue Wilson's dies. They always look very elegant don't you think?

I die cut twice, the Sue Wilson die from the Austrian Collection Vienna, once in White and once in Periwinkle. I simply matted and layered up the card as seen showing a different size of the die cut each time until we got to the White bit in the middle, this I stamped my sentiment on with Chipped Sapphire before attaching it to the card.

I added a bow out of White Satin Edged Ribbon in the bottom corner of the card, I die cut the smallest poinsettia, inked it up whilst still in the die with Chipped Sapphire, added a Black pearl in the center than attached this to the middle of the bow. There you have the finished card.

It sounds quite a simple card to make but it was rather fiddly working out and measuring where exactly to die cut so they all matched up lol!
