Beautiful Wishes


Hello everyone!  Like the sentiment says, I wish you all beautiful wishes for a beautiful day!  Such a nice sentiment to send a friend anytime!  This card uses the Grand Labels Twenty three die templates as a base for the card.  I have used the largest three sizes here.  I pierced the middle one for interest.  I used the Intrinsic embossing folder on the smallest Grand die.  I love the swirly background it gives you.  I inked it with Tattered Rose Distress ink and then used the pad to hit the embossed area for some deeper colour.  I cut a cream coloured frame using Labels eleven.  I stamped my sentiment in black and inked it with Tattered Rose, leaving the centre a softer, lighter shade to bring your focus to the sentiment.  I made a flower using the Rose Creation dies.  I cut all the pieces for the flower out of cream card and inked them while still in the die with Tattered Rose distress ink.  I shaped the flower die cuts and stacked and glued them.  I added a pearl to cover the centre hole.  I backed it with a bow of pearls and some tulle cut ragged at the ends.   The close up pic below shows the flower in better detail.  I hope you like it.  All for now, Sue x

I like the effect you get with the flowers by inking them while they are still in the die. The white border is very effective. Lovely card. Karen x

Hi Sue

well must be sick of hearing this , but its a cracker.lol. I have been playing with the shapes of spellbinders putting different ones for the cut away section, its amazing what shapes u can get. I did a round rocking one with a scalloped circle and always cut out perfect and emboss beautiful.
Love the new flower. Have been inking them delicately but like the bold colour u have done.
Your a very clever lady.

Hi Sue, My Mum would love this card. It is so feminine. Her favourite colour is yellow and she adores pearls & of course flowers. It would also bring back many memories for her as many moons ago she used a lot of tulle to make ballet tutus. It certainly has brought back many memories for me.
With love and light Theresa. H

Lindyloo said...

Hi Sue,
Sorry I missed this post but I wasn't the best.
Anyway I saw this on C&C when you did it for a demo. It is such a lovely, pretty card and looks so much better in its true colours (not attacking your photography skills).
I have been keeping up to date with spellbinders latest releases via another American ladies blog and boy do they look stunning!! I hope you will be bringing them to us in the not too distant future. (EG. Persian motifs etc. and double sided embossing folders.)
Have a good day Love Linda
