When I Count My Blessings


 Happy Easter everyone!   It is truly a first for me to see snow on the ground at Easter!  I didn't have any actually Easter cards to post today, but I thought this one would be appropriate.  I love the sentiment! The colours are taupe, soft gold and black for this one.   I started with a piece of taupe card and used the inner die from the Window D-Lite set to cut the shapes on either side of the main window.  This is a very detailed cut out so be sure to use wax paper so it releases easily.  Next I stamped my sentiment using a black archival ink pad on to soft gold card.  When ever you stamp on metallic card, the ink is never as dark though, but it works okay still.  I cut it out using the outside die from the window set.  I used just the lightest inking of black soot while it was still in the die.  It gives it a very vintage look.  I mounted the window in the centre on foam pieces for dimensions.  I cut a piece of black glitter card to use behind my side windows.  I pierced on three sides around the edge of this background piece.  Next I embossed some taupe card with the Pastorale embossing folder.  I used one of the side strips and cut it out and matted it with black to create my border on the bottom of the card.  I added a double taupe mat and pierced the inner layer to finish off a really simple design.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/4" in size.

This is such a lovey card and that die is gorgeous. Happy Easter to all.

Jan.moogie said...

Happy Easter Sue, gorgeous card and lovely colours. Have got to play with this die as I love the fact that you can cut out shapes as well as the whole thing.x

Michelle said...

Morning Sue, I like the simplicity of this card and think it would be ideal for First Holy Communion or Confirmation cards for boys. For girls a couple of little pale pink flowers on the window ledges or around the windows would be nice. This is something I think I will try. Have a lovely Easter Sunday.

Hugs, Michelle E xx

Hey Sue anything goes weather wise in the UK so it seems these days, it's a favourite topic of conversation and we moan when it's hot too! LOL

Heather said...

Hi Sue

Not sure about this card I can't help feeling there is something missing - Oh yes! One of your lovely bows! I think it would have made it perfect!

I hope you and your family have a blessed Easter. Actually snow at Easter is probably the norm here in England! LOL!

morning Sue
Unfortunately I have had many Easters with temps very very cold and snow - my eldest daughter was Christened on 3 April 1966 and we couldn't get the car out to go to church there was so much snow!!
Although today's card is so simple it is so elegant - I love the format and the colour scheme and today's sentiment is beautiful and so appropriate for an Easter Sunday. Congrats to all the very lucky winners my fingers are always crossed. Don't eat too many Easter eggs.
