Thinking Of You Today

 Good morning my crafty friends!  I almost missed this one from some JustRite shows earlier this year!  Soft gold and coconut white are the colours it has been done in.  I started by stamping the Labels 29 stamp from the JustRite set called Good Friends.  I stamped it using a clear Perfect Medium pad and then heat embossed with bright gold detail powder by Cosmic Shimmer.  I cut it out with the matching Labels 29 die.  I covered a piece of coconut white card with a sticky adhesive sheet and cut the largest die in the Ornate Square set.  I peeled the backing paper off and covered it in Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles ( a very pretty white glitter without interference colour to it).  Once covered, I cut it in half diagonally.  I glued the pieces to opposite corners of my coconut white background piece.  I matted my Labels 29 piece in the centre with mounting foam.  I stamped my sentiment from the JustRite Always and Forever set using a clear perfect medium pad.  I heat embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer True White embossing powder.  I stamped the oval medallion stamp from the same set on white card and also embossed it in white.  I used the matching nested oval medallion die and next size down to cut it out, creating a small frame for my sentiment.  I mounted it over my sentiment with foam pieces and trimmed away the excess card around the bottom of it.  I cut a Venetian Motif in coconut white (don't forget to use wax paper with that one!) and matted it between my framed sentiment and Labels 29 die cut piece.  I tied a double bow with the sheer double sided silver/gold ribbon and added a pearl embellishment to the knot as an accent.  I used a glue dot to add my bow to the corner of my card.  I added a pearl swirl in the opposite corner for balance and matted the piece on a layer of soft gold card.  A final double white mat with a pierced layer finished the card.  A lovely card to send just to say that you are thinking of someone!  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.
Just a quick note, I had a wonderful birthday yesterday. I loved all the amazing comments you guys left me, thoroughly enjoyed the day shopping, a scrumptious meal and white chocolate martini and my blog counter past the three million mark to top it all off!  What more could a girl ask for!  All for now, Sue x

Bit later today car alarm going all night non stop near the house so am a bit bleary eyed so if there are any typo errors you will know why!

I trust the white choc martinis have touched the spot and you have shopped until you dropped!

Well today's card is beautiful so regal and one I think I must have a go at some version of it.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue,
You passed the 3 million mark because 3 million people just like me think you are brilliant so it is well deserved. I really like how you have done the ornate square die. With cutting it in half it can fit a rectangle shape with ease and it changes the die again, making more use out of it. It is a beautiful card with the gold against the white.
Glad you had a lovely day,
take care,
Love and crafty hugs

What a way to start the day - a truly elegant and majestic gift. The colour scheme is so so rich and matches the format just so.
I never think of cutting dies in half and I don't know why because as you show us they look just as beautiful as when they are whole - I really must get my brain in gear and remember to do this.
So pleased you had a wonderful birthday.

Congratulations on reaching 3million blogs. So glad you had a great day yesterday. A really elegant card; much prefer the lovely soft gold card as I sometimes find the gold mirri card too bright and brash. I bought some of the gorgeous sheer double sided silver/gold ribbon last time it was on C&C but can't use it as it's just tooooo gorgeous to cut but your bow looks so elegant so might order more just make bows. Take care. Hugs Pauline A x

Oh "Wow!", what a wow card! It's stunning Sue and yes, what a wonderful card to receive from someone who is "thinking of you". The stamp is gorgeous and alongside the dies, the silver and gold ribbon, the diamond sparkles (which looks stunning without colour), the soft gold card is gorgeous, just all combined makes a lush creation! Wonderful to know you had a fantastic birthday Sue. Just perfected with the 3 million mark! So so happy for you Sue and well deserved for a lovely lady. Had a busy day too, the little grandson was 3! Bought him a spiderman bike which he loved. He's just got grow those little legs a bit longer to reach the peddles, bless him! Take care Sue. I know they have given out nice weather for this weekend......hope the sun shines for next week too! xx Love Karen xx

Dear Sue
Apologies for posting this late, I've been poorly with a cold/virus these last few days and I felt dreadful all day so didn't leave my bed much all day and didn't feel up to it.

Back to your stunningly beautiful card. It's amazing I just love the regal white and gold colour scheme. The labels 29 stamp is amazing and die very pretty too. The Venetian motif in front looks stunning against the gold patterned background. The ornate square cut in two are great as corners it's such a pretty die that one - you continue to give me good ideas. The pearl swirl is so pretty and really finishes off the card beautifully.

So glad you had a good birthday ( and that you managed to take the day off , mostly apart from doing this blog).

Many best wishes and hugs from Katie-Louise sweetlove

Ps. So happy for you that your blog counter passed 3 million!
