. . . even more Christmas wishes


No, you're not seeing things, I had to make another card like the one in the previous post HERE.

It's the Merry Christmas Script die from the Silent Night Collection by Ultimate Crafts.  This time I layered the sparkling sentiment over a plain white one for extra dimension and pop.  I confess that it was a challenge and my first attempt ended up in a tangled mess, the next time, with a sheet of release paper under the sentiment, I gently moved it into place and it worked a treat.
Note to self - release paper is for more than die cutting!
I combined it with the the Falling Bauble Screen die from the Be Merry Collection by Couture Creations.  This time I used the Fuschia POW glitter paper because it matches the Pretty Pink Couture Creations Premium Adhesive Pearls perfectly.

Here are the two cards together, the "Rouge" version is on the left of screen, the "Fuschia" to the right, with the pearls.


What do you think, should I make more with just the glitter background or add pearls to the falling baubles?

  1. They are both quite beautiful, sometimes cards with pearls or bling can be difficult to mail, so maybe use glitter only for mailing and bling/pearls for hand delivery

    1. Thank You Donna :)
      Great point about the pearls and mailing, think I will only add them to the cards being delivered by hand.

      Yes, the dies are gorgeous, especially the sentiment, it's so large and so delicate.
