Some lovely Sizzix foliage dies and Christmas Penny Black dies were used to create my card.  I went for traditional colours of red, green and white and added some glitter, crystals and a foiled sentiment.

Reviewing The New Papermilldirect Sirio Colour Card

Hello friends, followers and anyone calling by.  I have a couple of special anniversary cards to show you this week and a review of the new papermilldirect Sirio Colour Card which  can be found over on the papermilldirect blog

I made two special anniversary cards  with this beautiful quality card and added some hot foiling which worked a treat.  I used the Go Press And Foil machine to add the sentiments and to colour the flower embellishments and numbers.

I used "perla" coloured Sirio card for the front and card blank on the 25th and "perla" with a white linen card blank on the 30th. 

This card is a dream to work with, a great firm weight being 290gsm, it die cuts beautifully and the foiling worked a treat.
