It's All About The Edgeabilities!

Good evening to all the blog readers!  How's this for a ruffly card?!  I was definitely having fun with the new edgeabilities here.  I do like the look it gives though, kind of like a big petticoat to the card.  I cut an extra black layer to go behind each layer to show them off and make them stand out a bit more.  At the bottom of the card, I added a ruched layer of the American seam binding in chalk white for dimension.  Loving the Bakers Twine here in the pastel aqua colour wrapped around the card.  I used one of the new A4 sized masks (triple scallop) to emboss the top of the card and give it some interest.  Again, I have used one of the smaller nesties for my sentiment and a faux nestie in black behind it.  I finished off the card with a bow from the same seam binding and three organza roses in the new lt. blue shade.  I hope you like it!  All for now, Sue x

Great card. In a very nice way it reminds me of those frilly knickers that toddlers used to wear over their nappies :-)

Now you are making me want to write my Christmas list and on the top would be the edge-abilities then maybe some roses and pearl pins, then some new labels then some.......
Love the card

Joanne K said...

What a great card Sue. Not had a play with my edgeabilities yet. Maybe I will have a go later. Hope you had a great time at Ally Pally x

Soo said...

I often forget patterned paper when I'm working with my Spellbinders. They've worked really well in this design. Lovely as always.

A lovely card Sue. Managed to speak with you at Ally Pally on Saturday, where we had a great time. Your DVD is fab and I would recommend it to everyone. Thanks Rachel

cotnob said...

Hi Sue,

What a wondeful card as usual. It was fantastic to see you on Saturday at Ally Pally. Thank you for the Hemp flower (my bra is now even!!!!). Have a well deserved rest as Ally Pally was manic.
Need my edgeabilities to arrive to get playing.

Love the lacy petticoat effect and the colours are beautiful.

Eemeli said...

Beautiful! My first thought was this could be such a nice 'baby boy' card. Maybe a hint of less black but that cute ribbon and roses and just perfect. Great job hun! ^^
Hugs from Finland, Eemeli

Patricia said...

Wow! Sue you have done it again. Where do you get all the inspiration from?? Really need to get some of these Edgeabilities.

Waiting for the masks I ordered to come so that I can have a play with them.

Keep up the great work.

vanessa said...

hello Sue
Well yet another lovely card. I really like the way you do your flowers, I still haven't got the hang of them. Seeing this card is making me needing the border dies as I've yet to buy them. Will have to see what I have after pay day!!! LOL

Jules001 said...

Lovely card, I really must have the confidence to use patterned paper more on my cards, you make it look so effortless. I seem to spend ages trying to match up papers and then run out of time to actually make anything, so good to get inspiration from you.

Christine said...

So gorgeous, beautiful colours and fab papers. Waiting in anticipation of my Edgeabilities to arrive. Hope you had a fantastic time at the weekend.
Hugs
Christine xx

Wellington said...

Gorgeous card TFS Really must get me some of them organza flowers - so effective

PaulineC said...

What a great idea to use the black behind the
edgeabilities. I love the ruffled ribbon at the bottom too.

PaulaB said...

Hi Sue. Love this card, will definitely need to invest in some new dies - when I've finished paying for the last batch! lol. Tried to stop by at Ally Pally to say hello, but you were far too busy. Thanks for all the great demos.

CathyinMN said...

Such a lovely card! I like how the black under each layer really shows the cut. Really like the ribbon and flowers, too. TFS!

Karen said...

I saw the edgeabilities, but they were a bit too expensive for me. They look so lovely don't they - love what you've done with them to show them off!

scrapper said...

Got the A4 masks at AP - love them.
Hope you've recovered from the weekend - I just need time now to sit and absorb your DVD!
Love the blue and white colours on this

Rhonda Miller said...

Oh, this is soo cute.

Hellma said...

What a gorgeous card

KimberleyG said...

I never think to use patterned paper with my dies either.

Anonymous said...

As usual, another stunning card, and the use of patterned card with dies gives added interest. I'm in Melbourne at the moment, and brought your DVD from home to watch and soak up the inspiration, without being interuppted ;-)xxx

craftynana said...

I love blue and white cards although all white is my favourite. I just love this card. I hope that the embossing sheet that you have used is going to be made in the smaller standard size as I don't have a Grand Calibur I think they look like clouds. I could buy an A4 and cut it down I suppose?

Moni said...

Gorgeous card, fab details. Hugs,moni

Meant to ask Sue, when cutting the frill
srips what width do you cut and how much do you overlay each layer?
