Miss You

Morning my crafty friends!  I really tried to photograph this one so you would be able to see that it is a soft sage green and white, but I did struggle with it.  It does look a bit grey, but trust me it isn't.  Think soft sage, almost mint green as you look at it.  I used the Gold Element One dies again on this one.  I decided to cut four of them, two in white and two in sage green.  I matted the white ones with green and the green ones with white that was dusted with Rock Candy dry glitter for a bit of bling.  I glued the four pieces into place with their respective backing pieces onto a larger piece of white card.  At the bottom of the card, I wrapped a piece of frilly edged white ribbon around and secured the ends to the back.  I tied a double bow with it and added it to  the centre with a glue dot.  I made a white rose and sugared it with Rock Candy Dry Glitter.  I added it to the centre of my bow and finished it with two pearl stick pins.  I cut a few more die cuts for my focal element, including a white Stately Circle as the backdrop.  I then layered up the smaller cross piece from the Gold Elements One set in green.  I stamped my sentiment in black and cut it out with the smallest die in the Gold Labels Four set.  I inked it with Bundled Sage Distress ink while in the die as a highlight.  I mounted it in the centre with mounting foam to complete my focal element.  I added a double white mat with a pierced inner mat to complete my project.  Finished dimensions are 8" x 9 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

It does look grey on my computer but grey or green it is a stunning card. I love the concept and the bow and rose are to die for. Miss you too so hope your vacation is going really well.

It does look grey on my monitor but it is still a beautiful card. The rock candy glitter gives just the right amount of bling to the rose. I love the layout and must try it later on today.

Morning Sue, This card is stunning, true the soft green doesn't show up very well, but the compilation of the corner die-cuts is stunning, especially with the rock candy dry glitter underneath. The bow and rose are, as always, superb.
We have rain here, I hope your weather is good.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
I don't think it matters that we cannot see the green as it looks very elegant in grey/white using green as an alternative.I love the idea of using alternate colours for backing as well as the main dies. I still have these dies on my wish list and really must have them. They make a 'wow' of a statement when you use them.

Oh Sue beautiful card, I think these dies are my favs or at least near the very top of my fav list.

Hi Sue

I love these dies, I have only had them for a few weeks as they were on pre-order. I made a sympathy card in purple and white with lilac asters in place of the bow, I also used this die with engraving card in bronze with burnt orange card as the background for my father-in-law.(without bows). Although they were the same dies used, both cards were so different. I love your card today the colour the beautiful bow and flower it's my sort of creation. Really stunning card. Thanks Sue. :-)

Kind regards
