Christmas Red ...

Hi Everybody,

Red and green are the traditional colors a lot of us use for Christmas and this one is created with Mirror card behind the frame.

I have created a frame from the Heirloom Ornament 2010 and backed it with the   Quatrefoil Pattern 

It always pays to get out older dies and re use them over and over again and these two cards are showing a variation on a theme.

I have simply turned the die cut up side down to give another  look and it looks just as pretty this way round.

I have used a glue pen in some of the cut outs from the patterned die cut and then filled it with glitter.

The addition of tiny pearls at all the cross sections adds an extra little touch.

The  letters on both cards are from the Spellbinders Alphabets in Upper Case  and the Lower Case  and with these two sets you can produce any name or phrase that you wish

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Beautiful each way you turned it Christina, but I do love that big red bow, eye popping.

  2. Hi Christina, two beautiful Christmas cards Beryl xx

  3. Hi Christina
    Love both cards. I'm just starting to make some Christmas cards so you've given me a couple of ideas for some cards. Thank you
    Love & best wishes

  4. Two beautiful cards from the same die....awesome
    Just perfect for the coming holidays..
    Well done Christina

  5. Hi Christina, those are both really pretty cards and I love the one where you turned the die upside down to give a different look. Your bouquet of flowers are beautiful as well. I thought I'd put that in the same post. I love gerberas, they seem to go with any other flower in the arrangement don't they. x

  6. These cards are soo pretty. I have that die set. Had not thought of using another die for the back. I sure hope I can start playing soon. I hear my dies calling my name.

  7. Beautiful flowers,first of all and secondly the x-mas bulbs up or down (peace is my favourite) are very nice x

  8. Time for Christmas cards, how pretty these are, love the die you used. Dianne

    Kind regards
