Miss You So Much

Hi bloggers!  This card is a bit difficult to describe as it is a double negative aperture card.  I think it is the first one that I have done like this too.  I was so enamoured when I cut the first Venetian motif that I just had to use the negative piece from it.  I don't know if you remember, but I misplaced the Venetian die after cutting it for the first time so this negative piece was the only one that I had at the time.  Since I hadn't planned to use it, it was a very small piece of card that I used and it wasn't particularly straight either.  So I decided to cut the Asian Motif and use the negative from that on top to cover the edge of the venetian negative piece.  I know, so confusing, huh?  I placed a piece of teal card behind to show through.  I also embossed the negative Asian Motif piece for some texture.  I used the Mystic Embossibility for that.  I cut four of the Venetian borders out of milk coloured card and backed the edge of them with teal card.  This allowed me to use foam mounting pieces on all the edge borders for dimension. I mounted them facing inward to frame my focal element.   I stamped the sentiment on milk card and cut it out with the smaller piece in the Asian Motif set.  I inked it with Broken China while in the die.  I layered it in the centre of the two negative apertures and pierced the edges of the outer mats to complete the card.  I think I will have to play around with other negative apertures to see how they look together too now.  All for now, Sue x

Your inventiveness never ceases to amaze me. Now we will all have to keep the 'holes' as well as what we have cut out!

It has occurred to me that the Asian Motif die would substitute for the Fleur de lis die you used the other day.

Jackie D said...

Hi Sue,

Well I've read it a few times but think I will have to try it out to fully understand what you have done!! You have taught us to think about apertures when we are cutting but really it is everything we cut that will have two uses!! have a good weekend - and keep warm! I say this as I'm not sure if you are here or with your mum but I had a card from friends in Floridas today complaining that it was cold...I don't think as cold as here though!!

Hi Sue, what a beautiful card, no TWS for me ( Teal withdrawal symptons) he he. Love the use of negative pieces to create a card. Up and running crafting again after hubby and eldest daughter bought an eBosser for me as still unable to use my left arm very much, Drs can't do anything, I just have to wait for it to heal, so checking in on your blog each day has helped me stop getting down when crafting was too difficult and painful to do. Hope to see you soon back on our screens. Lol and hugs Lynne M x x x

This is such a stunning card. You make it look so easy to use up all the off cuts when making a card. Just goes to prove that you never know what you can come up with till you start playing around. Lovely, lovely card. I'll have to try this out myself, but I'm sure it will not come out looking anything great like yours.
