Thinking Of You

 Hello crafters!  Chestnut brown and white are the colours of today's creation.  I love the shade of this brown card, it is very warm.  I have used the Autumn  Swirl Background from Justrite Stamps.  I inked it with the Flake and Glitter glue and stamped it onto the chestnut brown card. Remember to clean the residue off your stamp immediately. Allow a few minutes for the glue to go clear, then sprinkled the bronze polished silk glitter over the image.  I burnished it with my finger and tapped off the excess.  I cut a larger piece of coconut white card for my background and used the Curved Borders two to cut a decorative edge to the bottom of the card.  I mounted it on brown and white thin mats as accents.  I glued the glittered piece to the top of the card as a background for a Filigree Delight cut in white card.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the tag from the set.  I inked it with Vintage Photo distress ink while still in the die.  I tied a double bow from the ruffled edge organza ribbon and added a pearl embellishment to the centre.  I finished the card with a double white mat with an inner pierced layer.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Great card Sue.

morning Sue
As you say a very Autumnal look for today's gift.
The colours are beautiful and the ribbon I have not seen before looks fantastic. I must confess that I am a ribbon fiend. I buy masses of ribbons and then find I cannot possibly use them as they are too beautiful to cut.
Will have to purchase some autumnal coloured card.

magpie said...

Oh gosh! How under estimated is brown and the fact that it isn't used as much as all other colours. It's lovely to see. Gorgeous card Sue. I have the Filagree Delight and was only thinking earlier that the oval die can be used as an aperture for Christmas cards. I love the silk glitter and makes the background pop! It just looks stunning. xx Love Karen xx

joyce walker said...

Hi Sue
Sorry I have not been commenting on your recent cards but since I visited you in Aberdeen I have been
in and out of hospital since the end of July and only got home on Friday. My dear husband has saved all the cards you have made onto a file for me and I cannot wait to look at them all. I really enjoyed seeing you on Create and Craft on Sunday and look forward to seeing you again soon I hope. I know you have now gone to America and will not be on C and C until December but I also now have my CD from Aberdeen so have a lot to catch up on. Thank you for all your lovely down loads. I hope to use one of your designs for Christmas so I will have to get started. Should you have a quick classy card that I could made 100 of quite easily your advice would be greatly received. Love Joyce xx
