With Kindness

Hi there crafty friends!  I started today's card by picking a piece of flocked paper from a Kaisercraft card pack.  I have to say that I don't usually go for flocked papers at all, but I loved the pewter gray on the background of this one so I had to have a play with it!  Here again, it's a really simple and quick card for the most part.  There was some drying time involved in the paved pearl technique on the edges, but if you eliminated that, you can make this one in under twenty minutes!  I used one of the Vintage Lace accent dies to cut an aperture in the upper left corner of my flocked paper.  Next I ran a strip of redline tape across the bottom quarter of the paper.  I used a piece of black silky crush and ruched it on the edge, rather than down the centre like I usually do.  This left me with a free standing ruffle since the ribbon is an inch and a half wide.  I cut one of the Vintage Lace borders to cover the top of the ribbon, but left the ruffle exposed.  I added some black rhinestones to cover the holes in the edge of the border.  I put foam mounting pieces on the back and mounted it on a piece of black card, then matted it on to a larger piece of pewter grey card. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with another one of the Vintage Lace accent pieces.  I mounted this on foam pieces and placed it inside the aperture opening from the other accent piece.  I tied a double bow out of the black silky crush ribbon and added it to my border with glue dots.  I did have a fancy silver button in my stash for this one (unlike yesterday, there were no fancy cream coloured buttons to be had that day or you know I would have used one!) and a couple of crystal stick pins.  Since the card was relatively simple, I thought it would look nice with Cosmic Shimmer black PVA glue dots around the edge in my paved pearl technique.  If you haven't given this a try, it is quite fun to do.  I like to add random large dots across one side at a time, then fill in with other smaller sized dots.  That way, it looks a bit more random and you end up with less of a lined look.  I hope you have a chance to give it a try and let me know what you think!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue I gave the dots a try a few nights ago and it's fun to do. Your cards are so detailed they look as though they may take hours to do but you reckon ths is quick to do well will have to time myself when I give this a try. Lol.

Thank you for all your lovely inspiration. I don't know if you visited creative harmony blog yesterday. As she showcased my sister's lovely necklace she made me. I think it's worth a look at if you haven't already. She does amazing things with beads. Have a great crafty day everyone.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Linda (Lindyloo) said...

Morning Sue,
This is such a elegant and quite decadant card. I love the rich background paper and bet it looks even better in real life with all the flocking and I love your dotty work!!
I meant to say in yesterdays comment that the Teal card I made is on my blog today. I used your new Vintage Lace border die again to make filigree pyramid effects to go each side of my Parisian Motif. I hope you get chance to take a look. I am so impressed with the versatility of this new set; You have created something really wonderful indeed and they are vieing for my No1 favourite position with Parisian Motifs/Accents (still one of my faves).
Hope you're having a good day.
Bye for now. Linda xx

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, You have surpassed yourself with this beautiful card today. I absolutely love it. I am loving your technique of cutting apertures out of the backing paper and then putting a motif inside, it looks really good. I loved the 'french knickers' ruffle and beautiful bow. Glad you found a beautiful button today ha ha. I am in love with your pave effect around the edges, I have the cosmic shimmer glues but, as yet, haven't given it a try, I will have to do just that because I love the effect and it looks like you have spent absolutely ages doing it. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Lacelady said...

Wow, a really classy card, the backing paper 'makes' it for me.

kimberley said...

Mac Mable said...

Morning Sue..Love the colours, the techniques and the bow as always. Ruffle a little busy for me but will be giving this one a go as I love it x

Lucy said...

I really like the monochromatic look of this. I'm not usually one for ruffles, but this is beautifully done, especially with the die-cut to accent it. I don't usually go for flocked cardstock, either, but it works perfectly here. I'm not sure I could do it in 20 minutes, but I do believe I could at least do it. ;-)

guffie said...

Hi Sue a very elegant card love flocked paper i have a little of it so i think i might have a go at this one .... i do have trouble finding nice paper and card down on the south coast as we don't seem to have many craft shops xx gail

Tres said...

Hi Sue. A very nice card. I love the idea of the ruched ribbon and the border on top but I think I would have done the sentiment part using other, larger, vintage lace dies instead. Unless there was not enough room on the card!! (just my personal opinion though.) It is still a very nice card and I love the bow and flocked paper. Another great idea to try out with the ribbon. Love Tres x x x

Lara B said...

Good morning Sue
What a stunning card!
Love the pattern on the background paper. I have a couple of pieces of card, same colour, similar pattern (off cuts sold from craft classes at my local craft shop) BUT they make my skin crawl.. I hate the texture of the flocking! I keep thinking I'll give them away but the're so pretty I can't bear to! Wonder what it would be like to craft with latex gloves on!...
Back to your lovely card I really must invest start shopping for your lovely dies and ribbon...payday has arrived! Yippee!!

Have a great day!

Sue Parish said...

Oh WOW, Sue,
This is stunning - must have a go.
I've got some pewter with a silver fleck card I could back it with - a bargain buy at one of the shows. Only £2 for a huge pad of it, I couldn't resist! but carrying it home made my shoulder ache for days! It's been very useful though.

There's is so many things you can do like this which you easily forget! You're a great reminder! As for the cosmic shimmer glue I have to admit I have never had any but I love how you do the pearl effect with it. I'd need a few weeks/months/years practice!
