It's A Rare Sight

 Hi guys!  It's a card, an actual card!  Not just a front like I usually do, but a folded card with the ability to open.  I am not sure what possessed me, but I just thought these borders were so pretty that I wanted to show them off in a true card fashion.  I started by scoring a line down the centre of my white panel so it would fold in half.  On the top edge I used the lattice insert to the Bracket Borders with one of the cutting edges.  This cut a pretty top edge that was now shorted than the bottom edge.  I cut a piece of red card to go on the inside of the bottom flap.  I cut it just shorter so I had a pretty white edge peeking out.  On this red piece, I used my border to simply emboss the design into the card so that it shows when the card is completely closed.  I opened up the folded white card and used one of the dies from the Radiant Rectangles to emboss the design in the top half of the card next to my cut border edge.  I used the smaller piece in that set to cut a pretty red die to fit inside of the embossed area.  Next I stamped my sentiment and used the oval to cut it out.  Once cut, I added in the next smaller die and embossed the pattern over the top of the sentiment for a textural look.  I mounted it with foam so it was centred on my decorative red piece on the front of the card.  I added a few flat back pearls as accents to finish my "card."  The finished dimensions are 5" x 6" in size (so tiny for me!)  All for now, Sue x

My oh my, Sue, what a giant leap (well, a tiny leap actually in size) into the world of 'proper' cards!! Strange that you did this when I had just made my first big un-card which seemed really weird and actuslly liberating - LOL!
It's stunning and you're right, it really shows off the border die.
Simply lovely - any plans for more?

Good morning Sue and everyone. My goodness,a real live card and with no micro beads or ribbon. . . . .is this really Sue Wilson? Must be as its a fabulous card!
I received the bracket border dies this week with 5 other sets from Hubby as part of my forthcoming birthday pressy and he has let me play with them now(probably so he doesn't need to wrap em !) and they are amazing.
Have a nice weekend everyone. X

melanie said...

kimberley said...

Really like this Sue-don't have these border dies as I couldn't afford them but I do have all the straight edge ones so this will certainly encourage me to use them again.The colours are lovely-really striking and it is great to see you doing a 'real'card although all your other designs fit on to folded cards really easily.Hope you are still enjoying sunny Florida,take care,x.

I had no idea that you only made fronts on cards :) They all look like cards to open. But now that you mention it, they do look very flat. Mine usually want to open up a bit, when I photograph them :)
I do like this mornings card. The color is stunning and the borders are absolutely lovely.

What a strikingly beautiful card with the red just waking everything up including myself. Thank you for reminding us that you don't always have to cut a die out to get a beautiful result.

Dear Sue
I love your card, you may not normally do them but boy, do you know how to make them look amazing!
I really love the bracket border both cut and embossed on your card with the red peeping out showing it off.
The embossed rectangle looks great and the resplendent rectangle die cut in red looks stunning.

I'm sorry that your site has become a target for spammers it's such a shame. Though it won't stop me from visiting as its such a great blog.

Anyway your card is awesome and such a surprise to find an actual card!
