You Make Me So Proud

Hello all!  This is one of those cards that I could never deny that I made as it looks so much like my taste!  I love to make all white cards that have a pop of colour on them!  I started with the Majestic Labels 25 die set and I cut a frame using the largest die shape.  I added mounting foam to the back.  I stamped the background with Justrite Leafy Swirl background and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet and then used the Diamond Sprinkles glitter all over it.  It is very difficult to see in the photos but one of the close ups does show the white embossed areas underneath.  I placed the frame over it, giving it dimension.  Next I skipped a die in the set and went to the cutting edge with the piercing holes and inked the die with Picked Raspberry distress ink.  I cut this first so as to transfer the ink on to the card before it dried too much, then I went back and added in the next decorative die and cut the pretty detail around the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment (from the Justrite Mix and Match sentiment set by Becca Feeken) after the cutting on this one, something I usually do first.  However, I thought that would be easier to do than to lay down an inked die straight around my sentiment without moving it, especially since the sentiment was a clear stamp!  Once I stamped my sentiment, I replaced the die and lightly inked through it with the Picked Raspberry colour.  I cut two flowers from the matching raspberry felt using the Bitty Blossom dies.  I rolled them and added them to the side of my focal element, placing small flatback pearls in the centres.  I added a few leaves around them as well.  I completed the card with my usual pierced mats and added some flatback pearls to the corners as accents.  Finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size.

Its the start of a new Wilson week for us Wilsonettes and WHAT a start ! WOWWWW. Wow - wonder of wilson, as your cards always wow us and we wonder what on earth will appear the following day. Sue, I just have no idea where you get your ideas from. Do you sketch ideas ? Do you just look at the card, colours and dies, stamps, and everything else in your craft studio then decide ? I never know where to start (apart from the card blank) !! And any ideas I think of, then try to sketch NEVER EVER work out on card as it looks in my minds eye ! Maybe my minds eye doesn't work in conjunction with my brain cell.

I just adore white on white with either a tiny splash of silver or as here a dash of colour to 'pop out' one day I hope to be able to own a stash of card stock you use along with embossing folders and dies etc but its going to take a while to build it all up and 100's of Farmers Markets/craft fairs, but the competition now is soooo strong out there, the world and his wife are now creating cards and trying to sell them !

Well that's my entry complete. Love and hugs to you Sue, and all you lovely Wilsonettes have a lovely day, stay warm, safe, and happy.

Good morning Sue from an Icy, frozen Central Scotland.
You've heard of the frozen North, well that's us and its just the start,is it cold outside today.
Oh you just know what goes right to us Sue, lovely white on white with a pop of colour does it every time for me. The Majestic labels 25 is such a beautiful die set that always looks magnificent. I like how you have embossed underneath and the sprinkles just glisten like the frost and snow. Another stunning card that anyone would be so happy to receive.
