Girlie Thank You

Good morning all!  I have a bunch of Labels 20 cards from the last shows and here is another one.  I started with a piece of decorative card (from a Kaiser Craft pad I had in my stash)  I used the Elegant Fronds background on the same background paper and stamped it with a clear Perfect Medium pad and white embossed it.  I used the two largest sizes of the Labels 20 dies to cut two frames from it.  I used one of the frames on top of another label that I cut out of aqua card, creating a fancy edge for it.  I used this piece as the back layer for my focal element.  The other frame I used turned vertically across the centre on some mounting foam.  I stamped the smaller Justrite Kindness stamp on to the same aqua card.  I heat embossed it with white powder and stamped my sentiment in the centre in black.  I seated this piece in the centre with foam for dimension.  I cut a flower out of white felt from the Bitty Blossom set, rolled it and seated it on a messy bow made from turquoise seam binding and stick pins.  Next I stamped my border from the Justrite Lace border set and embossed it in white.  I added a sticky adhesive sheet so I was able to micro bead it for texture.  I added this to the bottom of the card and pierced the edges.  To complete the card, I added some flatback pearls to the upper corners.  This one is a lovely, soft girlie card in real life, so my style!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
What a gorgeous and beautiful card. My favourite colours. The embossing is really pretty.
I can never get that amount of detail when I emboss whith my stamps I must be doing something wrong!
This definately rates as my favourite though I have several favourites!

Thanks for your amazing inspiration.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue
Beautiful card today. I like everything about it. Labels 20 is a must have - that's my task for the day! Received my Project Book yesterday & have to say it is fabulous - the value for money,the quality of paper, the printing etc. As for the projects - yours are absolutely stunning! I also liked Dee's, not so keen on steampunk (but that's just my taste). Looking forward to the next volume -will there be a subscription type of offer available?

Rosemarie said...

Morning Sue, The possibilities with Labels 20 is fantastic, love this card, the colour is just me.

Love Rosemarie xx

A gorgeous card again Sue - just love the lace stamp and it looks great beaded. Can't wait to get my hands on the teal card. When you said you had some exciting news I was hoping you were going to say you were doing more regular shows on C&C. We don't see enough of you!! The book is great though, although I'm very biased and think your cards are the best! YvonneMayxx

Could do with some nice ones like that. I'll settle for a pearl or a sparkly dazzler as they are gorgeous too & it depends on how my card turns out later. Thanks again, Claire xxx
