Now to inspire you with some fantastic creations with our retiring sets and some fun Christmas items…cue the Design Team!


I wanted to pull out the very beautiful Petals and Peace set from the retiring list because I couldn’t bear to see it go without more cards from me.  I just love the elegance of this set and how it is custom made for our Tailor Made Classic Keyhole Die.  I stamped the image onto Flourishes Classic White cardstock and trimmed it out with my scissors, so that the die could cut out a Color Made Easy Poppy Cardstock border.  I coloured up the design with Copics to match the pretty Santa’s List Designer paper.  


Now for that gorgeous sparkle I spritzed some Mr. Huey’s Color Mist in Shine over the image and it sparkled everything except just some of the darkest of the red colouring….don’t ask me why it did that, but it looks really cool!  It adds drama and softness at the same time.  

Other accents include some pretty sequins that match the dp, red cording and red lace.  






Here’s the rest of the team playing along today:

Absolutely gorgeous Christine! I think this is one of the most beautiful dies. We need more images to fit inside it. Beautiful card!

Stunning! I love the look of your image. Sad that this set is retiring. It is one of my favorite Christmas sets. :)
