Birthday Wishes

Hi guys!  See, nice and bright and light so a balance from yesterday.  Although I was pleasantly surprised that most of you actually liked yesterday's card even though it was dark!  Maybe I am secretly winning you over! LOL  Today's card was one of those that just had to be done as these Bracket Borders just screamed out to me to do it.  I started by stamping my sentiment in black archival ink on coconut white card and cutting each side with the bracket border lattice insert die and the bracket border cutting edge with it.  Next I picked a couple of varying shades of blue.  I cut one side of the lighter blue, then lined up the white card with it and placed the die on the other side so it was just touching the die cut area from the white piece.  That way, I didn't need to actually do any measuring (which I rarely do any ways!).  Once I had both sides cut I cut the darker blue on one side and did the exact same thing but used the lighter blue edge to line it up with.  I do hope that makes sense!  It is very easy, you just need to clean your die of all the cut pieces each time.  I taped all the pieces together and the then matted them on a darker navy blue card to help offset the colours a bit.  I placed it on a double mat of white card which I pierced the inner layer. To answer a question that I noticed in the comments yesterday, when I am piercing the edges, I use a 1mm diameter needle on my pokey tool.  This will fit through the holes on the Creative Expressions piercing ruler perfectly.   As a final embellishment, I added some swirly pearls around the sentiment for a bit of bling!  The same layout would work beautifully with varying shades of pinks, purples, greens, you name it, easily personalised for your recipients taste.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good morning Sue,I had already got an idea in my head this morning to make a simple man's card. - I mean a simple card for a man, not a card for a simple man lol. Now I've seen this it's given me another idea even though I don't have these particular dies.
It's a beautiful card, but then, all your cards are beautiful.

Simple and effective card, Sue - and all without measuring! I don't do proper measuring either which frequently ends in disaaster (likewise in cooking, even worse results sometimes!!)

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
Today's dies are really something aren't they. I have added them to my wish list along with many others but I think these are a must have. I love the colour scheme - it reminds me of the sea and warm sunshine. As you say it would be successful in many other colours and I can see it being a very useful format for our sporting recipients.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
when I saw this at 0620 hrs I thought "it's missing something" - but now that I look at it again I come to the conclusion that you have created another beautiful card - less is indeed more.
And can be created with other colours etc.
Can't wait to get started, have a couple of men's cards to do.
Have got the brackets border as well as the curved border - might try something along those lines with them, too.
Thank you, Sue, for sharing.

loftylass said...

Debbie Ravenhill said...

Morning Sue, This is a bit of a different style for you! It's very clever and looks so effective. You could, as you say, use different colours even patterned papers. A great way of using a die in a different way. Something is missing.... a bow! Less is more, so the saying goes. Have a great day. Crafty Hugs Debbie R xx
