JustRite Friday Challenge #126: Don't Be So Negative!

For the current challenge @ JustRite Sheri asked us to use a "negative" piece (the part that is left after you cut something out) somewhere in your project. This was an easy decision, as I still had a green negative piece cut using Gold Majestic Circles. I loved the beautiful embossed edges I was left with and what a lucky break to have saved it!




I decided I wanted to do a rather unique Christmas card using yellow/gold instead of the traditional red/green.  First I embossed my yellow card with Gold Majesty Circles. Then to make it more festive, I threaded my sewing machine with Sulky Holoshimmer and stitched around the negative piece before attaching it to the yellow card. My sparkly greeting is from JustRite's Festive Poinsettia clear stamp set. Some gold gems and a textured gold bow complete my simple, sparkly Christmas card and I'm one card closer to having them done for 2014!

Whew! I was going through my folder of die cut pieces, and I found one of these negatives in gold. It was out on my desk for two days, but no inspiration was forthcoming. It's a beautiful die and you used it perfectly to showcase all it's amazing detail. Love the colours you picked too. Weird though that the middle of Summer inspired us to do Xmas cards!
What's with the early posting? Who are you and what did you do with Marge??
