Hello Friend

Hello bloggers! I love the simplicity of this card.  I had a couple of flowers leftover from another project I did awhile back and I decided to see what they would look like if I attached them to some white wrapped wire that I had.  I wasn't sure if they were too heavy for it but as it turns out, it was just about right!  I used the krinkly kraft paper to make my flowers out of.  I cut them out using the flower dies from the Jewelled Flower and Flourish set.  I added a bit of white paint from the Ranger Snow Cap Dabber to the tips of the flowers.  I layered up several of the small with the larger ones and put a brad through the centre.  I wrapped my wire around the brad before opening up the legs on them.   That secured my wire stem so no glue was even needed.  I made a background by cutting a Fancy Lattice die and gluing it to a piece of coconut white card.  I used the Grand Rectangles to cut a frame which I mounted with some 3D foam pieces for dimension over my lattice background.  I stamped my sentiment on kraft card using a clear perfect medium pad and heat embossed with white powder.  I used the two smallest sizes of the Resplendent Rectangles to cut a frame for my sentiment.  I put a bit of mounting foam on the back edges and used the sentiment to cover my flower's wire stems.  I curled the wire at the ends for a whimsical look.  The flowers are not attached so they are free to move about when you hold the card up, which also gives the entire card a sort of whimsical feel as well.  I added a double white mat and pierced the inner layer to give the piece a framed and finished look.  A really fun card, I hope you will give it a try! All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue,
Saw and loved this idea on C&C. Will have to try it out. I am still waiting for a replacement Fancy Lattice Die, will have a go with my Basic one.
Thank you for all the inspiration.

Heather said...

Oh! Sue! I so loved this card when you showed it on your programme when the daisy fell forward I just fell in love with it. I will definitely be using this one I might try making a vase by cutting down one of my other dies so it looks like a vase of flowers what a fabulous idea thank you. :)

GM Sue - what a chic card - love it! you are costing me a fortune in toner as I print off all the 'must trys' and file them - here's another! better fire that printer up again...

I keep meaning to say I cant imagine what it must be like to post a different card every day - your committment in doing so is commendable - we all appreciate it I think even when our comments are not so positive on rare ocassions.

Morning Sue, Beautiful card, I love, love, love the krinkly card flowers, loved them on your other card and love them on this one, the stems are genius. I love the lattice die, I have the basic one but not the fancy one, maybe I need the fancy one too ha ha.
I loved Julia's shows yesterday.
Have a lovely day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

This will be a very good start to my use of the lattice die. It arrived yesterday in the post. It is a lovely card Sue and evokes various other possibilities such as use with the Poinsettia die for a Christmas Card. Thank you Sue.

Heather T said...

Good morning Sue
I love this card when I saw it on C&C and I'm so glad you've posted it. You caught me out though because I thought you had used white embossing powder on the edges lol. My dies came yesterday so will be having a play with them this weekend. I agree with Clare W we all appreciate your daily commitment to us thank you Sue

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Clean, white with just a little colour from the flowers - beautiful. A card for any age group I think.
I still have not managed to buy the lattice die but have got the A4 garden trellis so will certainly be doing a version of today's card.
Janet x

Lacelady said...

Again, another winner - I would have to use the basic lattice, but otherwise I think I could manage to do something similar. Not sure if my flowers might need to be fixed rather than float about.

marg said...

Hello Sue!
I liked this card and the flowers are so cute, the trellis is a much used Die now I have the GC !
Love Marg

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Love this card! Saw it on C&C and thought it was stunning then. I think the idea of making the flowers "floating" is inspired. Love the flowers in fact the whole jewelled flowers set. Haven't got the fancy lattice but have the plain one so will give this a go with that.

nzillingworth said...

Hi Sue
What a great card. Love the flowers. Great idea with the wire. Maybe a few leaves from the Foliage set would finish the stems off (in gold or white). Still think it is a fab job.Like the way it pops out of the frame. Yes 10/10 from me.

Hi,I have just found you after watching C&C for the first time, I loved the cards you made & it has made me want some spellbinders dies, but which ones should I buy ?, I am a complete beginner so I am nervous that I might buy the wrong ones, your cards are really inspiring & you never know I might be as creative as you one day.

Love the movement you get with this card Sue! Lots of my cards have bits that move :-). I have all the dies to make my own version, but I think I can see mine in one of my spellbinder flower pot dies & I'll emboss a design on the front of the pot & sit it in front of the lattice like its a decorative fence panel. Your version is very elegant looking though. Wish my Kraft paper hadn't gone astray in the delivery yesterday... Claire xxx

Hi Sue,
Loved this one on C&C and I have some Flower-Soft wires that would do the stems, I think. Only thing is, would I be brave enough to leave the flowers nodding free? - or would my cautious side want them securely stuck down?!!!
