Noel


I created the ombre background using a sparkle pen, brush and water.  Hopefully you can see the sparkle in this photo.

Although I am not "into" Christmas cards in March, this is particularly lovely. I think that branch could be used in many ways. The ombre "noel" is very pretty. You do nice work.

This is so stylish! The way you have cut the panels and staggered them really elevates the design. Great work!

This is lovely, Sue. Beautiful ombre blending and gorgeous design. I think that you are very wise to be making Christmas cards all year round! Great discipline and how good it must be to see your stash slowly grow as the year goes on. Thanks so much for playing along at AAA Cards.

Beautiful green ombre background you created for the holly branch, Sue! I can see the sparkle in the close-up picture. It's so festive! The lighter green ombre on the die-cut sentiment is a nice touch too. Thank you for sharing with us at CAS Christmas! Hideko xx

Oh Sue, what a wonderful card you've created using the triptych! Those three panels are gorgeous, all done using the ombre effect. Love the way the background is green while the holly remains white. Clever touch! And the ombre Noel, perfect! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

So many wonderful touches in this deceptively spimple design: the ombre, the split diecut holly branch and the way you staggered the branch mimics the way the diecut Noel is staggered. Thanks for joining us at Watercooler Wednesday.

What a beautiful clean and simple card Sue. I'm really loving the white holly branch and the way you've set it against the ombre sparkly panels. The noel sentiment is perfect. Thanks for sharing at the Watercooler Wednesday All About Christmas Challenge this week.
