From our house to yours Christmas Card


I find paper piecing very therapeutic and this Sue Wilson stained glass window die is perfect for that technique. I have die cut the window in white, gold, red and green to create this effect. I mounted the white window onto gold card before adding all the die cut elements, I completed the window with flat backed pearls. 

I matt and layered my 8x8in white card with gold card and then white embossed card. I used a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I die cut the sentiment using a Sue Wilson die. I added the sentiment to die cut ovals which I cut with Go Kreate dies. I added the paper pieced window and then the ovals to my card. I completed the card with a die cut poinsettia which I cut with a Tattered Lace die.
