To Be Your Sister

 Hi all!  I started this one with the large polka dot mask and embossed the pattern  onto coconut white card.  For the bottom of the card, I used the Scalloped Borders Two die and one of the inserts with two cutting edges and cut a border from white card.  I glued it into place in an inverted style on to spearmint coloured card.  I cut the top edge to match with one of the edges and used another cutting edge below the white border, but only embossed it rather than cutting it.  I used a score board and added some vertical line embossing to the bottom of the piece.  I glued it into place along the bottom of my white embossed top piece.  Next I stamped the Lace Oval Frame from Justrite stamps using a clear perfect medium pad onto coconut white card.  I heat embossed it with white powder and cut it into a frame using the Grand Oval dies.  While still in the die, I inked it with Peacock Feathers distress ink.  The embossed image resisted the ink and showed off the white embossing.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it for dimension.  Next I stamped my sentiment from the Mix and Match Sentiments from Justrite using a black archival ink pad.  I covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet , cut it into an oval so it fit my frame and covered it with clear micro beads.  I tucked the bottom of the sentiment under the edge of my border, then attached my frame over it so a portion of the border showed below the beaded sentiment area.  I added a double bow tied from white frilly edged ribbon and a pearl embellishment for the centre.  I finished the card with flatback pearls around the inside of  the frame and the upper corners of the card.  I finished with a double white pierced mat to complete the card.  Finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, I love this card, especially how you have done the scalloped border, and the score lines underneath, it reminds me of panelling and is so effective. The peacock feathers complements perfectly the spearmint card. I love this card.

A truly beautiful gift today. I love the spearmint coloured card and must look out for it - I have just received a couple of stamps to match some of my dies so shall be having a 'play' with them.
The format reminds me of a beautiful room decoration in the style of (and now I cannot remember the name) very light and clean.

Good morning Sue,
What a lovely card that is plainer than some of your masterpieces, but is really nice. The colours of the card and the embossing powder or ink, really match perfectly. I loveeeee curved borders 2, as the effects that you get with them are wonderful.
Love and crafty hugs,

Morning Sue, What a beautiful card to cheer us all on this rather wet and miserable morning. The colours are so elegant and whilst I like the sentiment I fear that if sent to my sister she would think that I was after borrowing something. Hugs Pauline A x

Tres said...

Hi Sue. You have made a beautiful card today !! I really love the colours you have used. Gorgeous green. There is only one thing I am not so keen on and that is the large dots mask as a white background. I think the card deserved to have one of your own beautiful background folders like the heart lattice or the tapestry folders. Other than that it is a beautiful card. I love how you use the ovals with background stamps. A great idea. The sentiment is great to. Those border dies look lovely. Very decorative. I cannot wait to see you on toolshed on Sunday. Not long to go now. Lots of love Tres x x x

Hi Sue - I have been away the past week and the one good reason for coming home is that I enjoy catching up on all your cards. They are all fantastic and I love the embossing you have done today on the spearmint colour card. It's a beautiful colour - I have the teal card but this one looks a lighter shade so I hope we will be able to buy some of this colour soon. Kind regards

Maggie said...

You have such patience, embossing all those straight lines. That's what sets your cards above the rest. Very lovely use of stamping and colour but I genuinely don't like the bow. It's too messy for me. A pretty flower would have been so much nicer :) xx Maggie (definitely better without a bow)
