Friends Are A Wonderful Gift

Good morning all!  Hopefully the sun is still blessing you today with it's presence!  I dearly hope that I will be able to come home next week to some of it!  A card from the Die D-Lite shows awhile back is on offer today.  I started with the sky blue card from our pastel card pack and used the Fretwork mask to emboss the design.  I wanted a larger background so I extended the mask to achieve this.  This particular mask has a border around it so I cut off the border on one side of my mask so I don't get a line from it when extending the pattern.  If I want the border around the mask such as when I am doing a background in the same size as the mask's original size, I can still achieve it by rotating my mask one turn and re-embossing so it isn't a problem.  I decided to use a wide embossed coconut white strip.  I embossed it with the Petal Pleasures embossing folder from Couture Creations then cut the end into a fork and matted it with a matching black mat.  I stamped my sentiment on a strip of white card using a black Archival ink pad.  I cut a fork into the end of it also and mounted it on matching black card.  I attached it across the card slightly below the mid point.  To create the black rosette, I cut three of the Medallion Seven D-Lite.  I scored across each of them, then cut to the centre and concertina folded each of them.  Although I usually only use two dies for a rosette, I felt this one just needed one more to give it the look that I wanted.  I glued all the pieces together.  I used the very small dies that are in the Medallion seven and eight sets to cut the blue and white centre circles.  I added a 5mm pearl to the centre and mounted my rosette at the junction of my two flagged pieces.  I added a pearl swirl to the card and pierced the inner layer of my double white mat to complete the card.  I think this layout would work great for the guys in whatever colour combo you select for them too!  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Sunny Morning To You Sue!

It will be so lovely to have you back home but I feel so sorry for your dear Mom she will miss you soooo much!

We are having glorious weather in a lot of the country at the moment and it seems settled so hopefully if you bring a bit of sun back and mix with ours we will definitely have summer!

Your card today is lovely I like the sentiment very much. I love the layout and the rosette especially.

We've missed you loads!!

Good morning Sue, beautiful card as always, just make sure you pack a good bit of sun shine in to your bags to bring home just incase it's gone by the time you arrive, hopefully not. Patricia & I will do the same when we leave Turkey tomorrow.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Another beautiful card - you must have read my mind, I've been buying some masks and remembered you mentioning on a show how adapt them to extend the pattern. Only I didn't remember how many borders you cut off. Reading your notes on the card has clarified it again (and I won't forget this time).

Love the colours - the inclusion of black makes it so suitable for a man's card - something we always struggle with.
Hugs, Rose
PS Still sunny and mildly warm - I suppose soon there'll be screams for a hosepipe ban!!!

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, Well we haven't got the sun at present, and yesterday was the same, although the forecast was supposed to be good, lets hope that today the sun breaks through.
Your card today is lovely, blue and white are always lovely and crisp and clean and the pop of black really enhances, loving the rosette.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Victoria said...

Great rosette and very striking on the forked strips. Looks very do-able! The weather has improved here - let's hope that it continues!

Sandra said...

Good morning Sue, another lovely card , I think this one could be used as a Fathers Day card with very few changes! Lovely fresh colour combination too!
It's certainly great to see the sunshine. I really do hope it lasts, we all need the vitamin D!!!
I imagine its tough packing to come home from your Mum's , so I will be thinking of you xxx
Huge hugs
Sandra Riley xxxx

jacqui said...

Love these roséttes , I've not yet bought any, but you've helped me to decide too.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
I am never sure when I see these rosettes - I don't really know why as they always look wonderful on your cards - I love the colour scheme for today's gift and the format but just not sure of the rosette - perhaps I will try using something different in place of this.
We seem to have lost our little bit of sunshine as yesterday was dull and today has started the same. Looking forward to having you back here but wishing you had a c&c show before the 20th as I am on my way back to France on that date and will not be able to see your scheduled shows.

Hi Sue - First of all a very happy belated birthday to you and it sounds like you were going to have a great day. White chocolate martinis - wow!!!! I have been away on holiday for two weeks taking in some very welcome vitamin D and have missed seeing your daily cards but have enjoyed catching up with all of them this morning. So glad you will be 'coming home' to us soon. What a wrench it must be for you after all this time. Hope it warms up a bit more though as although it's sunny here there is still a chilly breeze. Have a safe journey and look forward to your shows later this month. YvonneMayxx

Morning, Sue. Sun still shining and let's hope it stays for your return - knowing English weather who knows!! I've never made a rosette but your card today is gorgeous and made me determined to try... A task for this weekend!
I've just done the maths on your 4 years blogging - a card a day makes 1460 cards you have made!!! And some days there have been more than one. And those are only the ones you have put on your blog, there must be dozens more you have created. Unbelievable, Sue!!! You are amazing :-)

Well the sun is shining here in Cornwall! Another great card. Could you do a tutorial on how to get our pericing as straight as yours please, mine is all wonky and doesn't line up?!

Love that blue and white and the black really stands out looking wonderful.
I think the rosette looks so pretty it must take a lot of patience to fold it even with a scoring board and tool.
Just love this card today it looks amazing.

I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday I was feeling particularly poorly with a summer cold - lucky me! So I spent most of it in bed resting. The card yesterday is stunning and I will post on that one later.

Hi Sue, another super card which is very adaptable for our men folk as you said.
I have my daughter and granddaughters here with us in France for a holiday, weather today has been 33 deg. A little too hot for me but not complaining, but I'm dreading when they go home next week so I know how your mum will feel when you leave must be very difficult for you both,but she knows you have over three million friends back in uk, France ,Spain and probably many other countries too.
