Cream And Aqua Card

, Morning all!  A simple cream and deep aqua card for today's post.  The background was embossed with the Valor embossibility folder, utilising the technique to lengthen my background seamlessly. I wrapped a piece of aqua silky crush ribbon around the left edge and taped the ends to the back of the card.  No bow today (although it easily could have been added), I decided to use a piece of natural twine to tie around my ribbon at the bottom for a simpler look.  I cut a smaller piece, about 4" x 4" and pierced the edge as a frame for another piece of milk coloured card.  I mounted them in a diamond orientation.  Using dark aqua card, I cut a frame using two sizes of the labels 24 dies.  Using an open So Trendy embossibility folder, I placed the frame on top while still in the die.  Leaving the folder open, I placed my tan mat on top and added a few pieces of card as a shim and then the raspberry plate, I ran it through the machine to emboss my frame.  I inked it with a bit of distress ink (forest moss, I think) to bring out the embossing.  I added some matching pearl Nestabling to frame it.  I stamped my sentiment and inked the edges lightly with Broken China distress ink and mounted it behind my frame using some foam pieces.  I added my frame to the centre of my card, but offset in a square orientation this time.  One Spiral flower 3 was rolled and added to the top corner as an accent and the entire edge of the back matting was pierced to complete the card.  All for now, Sue x

Another different card Sue, where do all these ideas come from? Love it and what a difference using twine instead of ribbon, makes it usable for a man.x

This is a lovely card, striking in the contrast colours. I think I would have added the bow but thats because I love your bows Sue.

Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

What a lovely card - where do you get your inspiration from - it certainly has the wow factor.

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Another gorgeous card today. Beautiful colourways, the milk card combined with the aqua go beautifully together. I would have preferred a bow, because I love your bows, but the twine really works. It just proves that all you need to make an elegant, beautiful card, is cardstock, dies and ribbon, perhaps a bit of bling and hey presto - fantastic card. lots of love, Patricia Howarth xx

Dawny T said...

Another fantastic card, love the colours and the use of the ribbon and twine. You just amaze me on how you come up with all your wonderful ideas. Cant wait to have a go at this one over the weekend, seeing as most of it is going to be wet and windy here in the uk.

Birdie said...

Fantastic - as usual!! Can I please ask what you use to pierce the edges of your cards? I have bought a TH Ide-ology ruler with the holes in but my pokey tool doesn't go far enough into the hole to make an impression - my very fine parchment tool goes through but the hole is so fine you can hardly see it!! Any help would be appreciated - thanks Birdie (aka Denyse) xx

Hi Sue. This is a fab card!! I am probably biased because I love green so much!! The flower is great and I love the green ribbon. If I was making it I would probably have put a bow on it!! Another clever idea of yours to matt and layer at different angles and paper pierce the smaller layer too. It just brings the whole card together. Wonderful!! love Tres x x x

Beautiful card and so gorgeously laid out. The colours are lovely and the deep aqua (looks teal on my laptop) seems to have made the milky card a tone of green and its lovely.

You had me at "Cream and Aqua Card," then it just kept getting better. That is gorgeous ribbon. I rather like it with the twine. I do love your bows, but I think a bow would have covered up too much of the beautiful card.

Love this card Sue.Teal is one of my most favourite colours.
