Kraft Card Cut Outs

Hi guys!  Still feeling under the weather, but did manage to get out of bed today, even answered a few emails, but not caught up on them all yet. Thank you for all your well wishes, they mean so much.   I know that you would understand if I missed a blog post, but I have to blog, it is so much a part of me now.  I am putting off the comment game drawings until I feel better as that does require more energy than I can muster at the moment.  I hope you will understand.  The good news is that there will be loads of winners when it happens!  For today's card, I started with kraft card and cut all the aster flower toppers out of it in a random pattern.  I repeated the smaller one.  I stamped my sentiment in the lower corner and wrapped some Bakers Twine around the card above my sentiment and tied it through a button.  I used a white gel pen to make faux stitching lines around the edge and all the flowers.  I cut out matching flowers out of black and took off the inside petals on all of them.  I used a black and white decorative paper to put behind the kraft card and show through my aster flower openings.  I placed the black flowers over the matching flower cut outs and added a fancy button in the centre of each of them.  I pierced the edge to complete the card.


The last of the cruise pics as I didn't take too many, but Nigel and Leonie and the rest of the C & C crew were enjoying the final night dancing and having a good time. 

The final pic as we disembarked on Tuesday morning after a late night!  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue, I am sorry to hear that you are still a bit under the weather but hope you are over the worst now. I agree with everyone else, it must be that you have done so much and all that travelling.

Good morning Sue

Glad you're feeling a bit better.

This is such a lovely card. You've put a different look to the kraft card, the background paper, die cut flowers, string and stitching etc work so well together. It's clear to see that nothing gets in the way of your creativity!!

Take care

lejo said...

Hi Sue, I hope you are feeling better very soon. Thanks for putting this on your blog, it has to be one of my favourites. I love those colours. I tried it myself this week. It was my parents diamond wedding anniversary on Thursday and I had 3 cards to make. One for mum from dad, one for dad from mum and one for them from me. Such a dilemma making 3 different cards for the same people. Needless to say I looked to your blog for inspiration and recordings I made of your C&C shows. I was very pleased with the results.
Crafty hugs, Leah xxx

Planetsusie said...

Wonderful creation Sue!!! Must admit I would never have thought of making a card this way - ie using the negative part of a piece of cardstock. The colours are great and the faux stitching around the edges - a brilliant touch!

Glad you are a little better - hope you continue to improve.

Hi Sue, I'm glad you're feeling a bit better today, but still make sure you take it easy. I loved the card when on CR&CR. I'm slowly getting used to liking Kraft card, mainly by seeing how you use it on your cards.I've used this layout with other flower dies, and it is striking and can give you an endless variety of diff cards depending on what backing paper you use..thanks for your inspiration. Take care..:)..xx

Fairly simple card but very striking! The combination of black and white with the kraft card is very effective.Hope you will soon be feeling much better.

Very nice card! I like that the kraft cardstock is not being so covered up, and I also like the pattern paper showing through the cut outs. Hope you keep feeling better every day and that you're fully recovered very soon.

Hi Sue,
what a great card to remind us to think about the "negative" space - the design left behind when we cut out our dies. It is used to great effect here.
Hoping you will be fully recovered soon, but if you have to be ill how nice it must be to be with your Mom. There's no one who knows how to look after us, or what we might need, quite like our Mothers!

Hello Sue, I hope you feel even better tomorrow. Take care of yourself.

Your card is just stunning! I got my POTW last week and I have been playing a lot, made some flowers with the bauble blossom, some of the cut fold and tuck dies. I haven't played with my Asters yet but they will be used this week.

Thank you for your inspirational cards and I have been looking through some past designs too.

Hugs

Hi Sue I am late posting because it is my Granddaughter's birthday today so been out for the day with her. I love the card you have posted today it is such a good idea to use the die as a negative as well as a positive. You must look after yourself Sue you are such a thoughtful person you must put yourself first, but I know what you mean about you must post you know how crafting helped me.
Lots of hugs (x)
Heather

Hi Sue,
Happy Mothers Day to you and your mum. I am really sorry that you are and have been so rough and hope you are on the mend soon. Nothing better than mums love and attention when you are poorly is mind you so you can take care of each other now aye?! I hope you manage to have a good day.
Todays card is so good. I swear the first time I looked at it I saw the flowers moving, falling and spiralling downwards. It's lovely and I adore it's simplicity. All the best Linda x

Hi Sue,
Saw you demonstrate this onTV and was really taken with it as I have never thought of using dies like this. It has given me some ideas for using some of my other dies. Hope you feel better soon

Hi Sue, hope it's not long before you turn the corner to being well again. I've just used these dies to make a 60th birthday card, really like the use of the negative cut out.

Hope that you are feeling better. Sounds like you just need to take some time to chill and relax! Yesterday's card was gorgeous and today's is also pretty and a lesson in looking at your dies in a new way. Hope you and your Mom had a Happy Mother's Day. (I think you're still at your Mom's?)
