Where There Is Love

 Hi friends!  I hope you are still enjoying the Radiant Rectangles as much as I am!  I used the largest two die sizes from the set to cut an aperture out of the centre of my coconut white card.  I embossed the remaining background area with my Heart Lattice embossing folder.  I added some mounting foam to the back of it and mounted it on a piece of red card.  I recessed the Radiant Rectangle piece that I cut out of the centre, gluing it back into the aperture opening.  I cut the smaller die out of coconut white card and matted it in the centre of the card.  I stamped the stamp from the Justrite set called Enjoy The Day Labels Four and added the sentiment in the middle.  Using distress markers, I coloured it and mounted it in the centre of my card to complete my focal element.  I tied a double bow with frilly edged white ribbon and added stick pins and a heart dazzler.  Flatback pearls were used to adorn the corners and a double white pierced mat finished the card.  A pretty and quick card that could be used for a number of occasions with a simple change of sentiment.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,
Just exquisite, that's what this card is! Red and white is always a winner for me and the dies are one of my (many) favourites.
Thank you for making the dismal in this morning go away.

Oh my goodness Sue, this is absolutely gorgeous hun. I just love love love this one. And I fell totally in love with this embossingfolder too, which brand is that??? Don´t think, I´ve ever seen this one before, at least not I remember. You mention it´s name, but not who´s made it, and I would really love to find it, so please tell me, which brand it is, so I know, what to look for??
Have a wonderful day and lots more fun too.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue
A very elegant gift for today and I do love the rectangles. I'm afraid the colour scheme is not for me but on my screen it looks orange and not red so it could be that. But for me today's star is the sentiment - how very very true it is and one we all should think of.

Annie said...

Very beautiful card, Sue, love it! Hugs Annie

Hi Sue,
Lovely card. I too love the rectangles they are so useful. One question though - how/where do you get your different sized envelopes for posting your cards? If you make them how do you do it? I have an envelope maker but it only does standard sized envelopes and I can't seem to get it right when I try to make odd sized ones.

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW what a gorgeous card today !! I really love my radiant rectangles they are one of my favourite die sets. I have just finished a card following instructions for another radiant rectangles card you made a while ago which by coincidence was also red and white but I made it for my mum in white, teal and black. It is her birthday at the end of next week. If it is for my mum or dad I always have to make two cards as they always ask me to make the cards they give to one another too !! I love the justrite stamp set you have used today and it is very much at the top of my wish list. I can't wait to see you on tv again next week. Happy crafting everyone love Tres x x x

Good morning Sue,
How i love when you do these cards that have the elegant touch of a the bold colour behind the white. The fading gradient that you have achieved with the markers has been nicely done.
Have a great time on your road up to Scotland and i hope you find my fellow Scots as lovely as i know they are.
Love and crafty hugs
