Friends Make Every Day Special

Hi bloggers!  Don't they just!  As the sentiments says!  I had this craving to use red in some way that I normally don't so I decided to pare it with tan and white and I really like the way they balance each other!  I started by embossing my coconut white card using the Whimsical Flora embossibility folder.  I extended the pattern even though t doesn't line up exactly, but it is quite busy so it doesn't show the join area very much.  I matted it on red for balance.  Next I started on my focal element using the Radiant Rectangle die set.  I cut the largest piece out of red card as a base.  I cut the next piece out of tan card and used the two largest dies in the set to get the decorative edge.  I matted this onto my red piece so it showed through and glued them together.  I cut the next layer in red using the smaller rectangle and the next die down in the set.  This gave me a red frame.  I used the decorative oval in the set to cut a tan piece which I sandwiched back into the red frame as it was the same die that I used to create the inner shape on the frame.  I cut a bottom mat piece out of white card and glued all the pieces to it so that the white could be seen through the decorative edges.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the oval and the next die down in the set.  I cut an oval out of red card and used it to mat behind the sentiment piece.  I mounted this with foam in the centre of my larger die cut pieces to complete my focal element.  I added a messy bow tied out of lipstick red seam binding and some natural jute.  I finished my bow with stick pins and a red Dazzler.  Flatback pearls were added to the corners of the die cuts and the card for embellishments.  A double mat of coconut white card was added to finish the card with a pierced inner mat.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8 1//2" in size.

Wouldn't have thought of using tan with red and white, Sue, but it is a great colour combo. Love those Radiant Rectangles - a great card.

Hello Sue

Well I am glad you followed that intuition as this is a truly lovely card. As you say the balance is just right so that the red is not overpowering. Beautiful!

Hi Sue,
this is right up my street! Would not have used tan with red but it certainly works and I shall no longer dismiss them as a colour combo.
The way you've used the radiant rectangles is ingenious - I just love that card.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Rose

Gorgeous card, love the combination of the red with the tan and white!

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. Great card, and like the other bloggers I would not have put tan with red and white, until now! They works so well together, I love it. Wish I could do bows like yours, the only ones that come out ok are the jute ones and tiny ribbon bows. Must practice! Happy Bank Holiday to everyone. Take care.

Bosquie said...

Unusual colour use and stunning dies. Without the bow this could be used for a "boys" card. Have a great weekend.xx

Hi Sue, yes like others who have commented before me, I probably wouldn't have combined these colours, but they really work..fab card, Carole Z X

Marleine said...


Hi Sue,

I like this card very much. You're right the tan softens the red down well. Those dies are gorgeous. X

Good morning Sue. Like everyone else who'd have thought red and tan? You of course. You really do lead the way. Xx

Marianna Hammer said...

Yes, they do! Friends really do make each day special. And this card is so pretty and special.
Every day it amazes me how good you are at comming up with new ways to use the dies. You are so very talented <3

Nanny Jo said...

WOW!! That colour certainly pops, Sue! And it makes the tan card looks so much more feminine. I always thought of it as a masculine colour. Thanks, Sue.. :) xx

Hi Sue
Wow! This is gorgeous. Like everyone else has said, would never have thought that tan would work with red and white, but it certainly does. Red nod white is one of my favourite combinations but the tan just softensit a little. Love the dies as well.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
We have SUNSHINE this morning and to go with it a beautiful hot colour scheme. The format is really to die for and sets the red and gold off beautifully.Good for many occasions and even without the bow and stick pins would be fine for our less frilly friends.
No crafting today for me it's shopping this morning and then off to my Great Granddaughter's second birthday party with all the family (we will have four generations there)so today's sentiment is especially true.

lydia jordan said...

Hi Sue,
A fabulous card, never would have thought that red and tan would work together, how wrong was that. The radiant rectangle dies are fast becoming one of my go to sets they are so versatile, I love the way you have used them on this card. For once I even like the big bow, as you know I'm not a fan usually.
Have a good holiday weekend everybody, lets hope we get some warmer weather.

I did think that it was the soft gold card at first glance rather than tan, which does give the card a look of . . . . .Christmas. . . There, I've said it! Even now I know its tan, its still festive. One to remember for later in the year. Lovely.x

Sue I have not left any comments previously as I was not sure how to go about it. I love todays card and every other card that has been on your blog. I watch every programme that you are on on television as I admire your work so much. I just wish I had your talent but I am afraid I have to depend on plagiarism and copy your cards. The comments I get are reward enough. You are wonderful
