On Your Special Day

Good morning all!  I have bunches of wedding samples from my shows a few weeks ago so I thought I should start feeding them in here and there.  I picked out a piece of gold decorative paper from my stash for this one and cut it on the diagonal.  I used the Fudge embossing folder to add texture to a piece of coconut white card, then glued my decorative paper to the bottom of it.  I used six gold satin roses as a diagonal border between the two pieces. I tucked some Faux Quilled Leaves in and around along with some white pearl string pieces to give the border a more romantic feel to it.  For the top focal element, I cut several ovals, one white, one gold to mat as the background pieces.  On white card, I stamped the wrought iron corner  (part of the singles range from Creative Expressions) and heat embossed it in white for a tone on tone look.  I cut this out with a slightly smaller oval and layered it up.  I stamped my sentiment and heat embossed it with gold detail powder.  I cut this out with the Splendid Circle die.  I did one more of these dies in gold and then offset it slightly behind my sentiment to complete the focal element.  I finished the card with a white paper pierced layer and a soft gold mat sandwiched between my final white mat.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8 3/4" in size.  Got a wedding to go to soon? You might like to make this one.  All for now, Sue x

GM Sue - lovely card - that fudge EF is very Rennie Mackintosh me thinks. Forgot to mention, I bought a stamping mat the other day and it makes acrylic stamping easy peasy - I was using all sorts until I saw your stamp mat you were using on a show - I didn't even now such things existed till then - so many thanks - wouldn't be without it now. Dull and wet for the next few days so perfect crafting weather once the ironing is done! Love those leaves!!

Hi Sue. Ooo love this card the gold and white look very lucherios any couple would love to receive this one.
I brought a pricing ruler and an a4 embossing folder ( latice type you use with foux pearls ) amongst other lovely things. Can't wait to have a go. Sadly at work today so will have to wait. I met some lovely people yesterday at the craft show. It was really nice.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

morning Sue from a very dull and rainy Burgundy here in France.
Today's gift is so so elegant and very simple so much so that it makes a huge statement 'here I am'. Who could fail to fall in love with it.
I can see it also being used for many occasions, golden wed anniv/change the colour of the roses and you have silver wed ann and change them again and you have a beautiful valentine gift and even a beautiful beautiful bday gift.
Take care everyone and to all who have special events this week-end hope the weather behaves and everything just falls into place.
See you tomorrow.

Beautiful card, Sue, and relatively easy to achieve with ready made flowers. Do like the embossing folder (such a strange name for an RM type design!) What really gives the finishing touch are your lovely leaves which hurrah I have.

Beautiful card and one that a happy couple would be overjoyed to receive. Love the embossing folder and the flowers and then of course there's those gorgeous leaves - so pleased I bought them!
Very dull up in Durham today although hubby & I went to Flamborough Head yesterday to see the birds - could we see them? No! The sea fret was horrendous! Managed to see a couple of puffins and gannets throughout the mist but so disappointing!
Hope everyone is ok - Tina hope your dad is recovering, sending you both hugs. Steph, Norah hope you are both ok. Have a lovely day everyone. Love Alison xx

Paper Junkie said...

What a fabulous card Sue. I really do need to get the fauz leaves (only die in the finishing touches I haven't got!). Keeps selling out but I'll keep trying - and that folder is just so pretty that's now on the list list too. Chucking it down with rain today hope you are in the sun and having fun. I have a musical day today - just off to choir rehearsal (sweet community choir - to sing some Abba and Les Mis) and this evening I am singing and playing my ukulele at a charity concert with the wonderful Sam Brown's band. I'm singin a new solo tonight - "Your Cheating Heart". Went to some yodelling workshops last year so am going to be brave and do a bit of Hank Williams - hopefully will not come out like Lady Bracknell - a HANDBAG????? And yes - do all my practising on the allotment (only if I'm on my own of course - would HATE get a reputation of being a bit batty). For those of you who don't know Sam, please look her up on You Tube - nearly 50 and still gorgeous. See you on the other side - have a happy day everyone (in spite of the weather - ggrrr.) X

Hi Sue, oh I adore this card. Love the diagonal row of roses. The embossing folder is so pretty. Hope you have sunshine across the sea. It is tipping down in Southampton. Lol lynne m x x

Yorkielass, Magpie, - I walked around the house last night with arms up punching the air cuz I managed to keep the little darlings from rolling on the grass. It was a close run thing though cuz the little b's kept separating and going in different directions. Hubby really does like living close to the edge cuz he said " why did you keep chasing them for, is it a new game" seriously I think he and poochies have joined forces to make me loopy.

Cameeli- hope everything goes ok colouring your shoes.

Hope all "Wilsonettes " have a good day , lol and hugs to all. Lol lynne m & fur babies.

Suffolk is definitely not sunny today! Grey, wet and the sky looks quite oppressive - birds are still singing though, so all is not lost.

Hi Sue and all Wilsonettes. Awful start to a dull cold grey day here in Lancashire. Forgot to take my meds last night so Im having an awful time. These nasty morphine tablets have got me withdrawing and SO upset they have got me into this state. Dam body, dam meds !
I thought yesterday I had my daughters wedding card all sorted along with the list of needs required to make it, then you offer us this astounding, beautiful card and more to come by the sounds of it. So now I'll wait and watch until the glorious selection of wedding cards have passed, then make up my mind and make my list of needs (although I want the fudge EF) what a shame they named your new brand without consulting you as I think Swirled Rose sounds nice, but thats just my opinion (which may get me in to bother) !
Hoping you are having a lovely time spending precious moments with your mom whilst working.
Thinking of you Janet K on this sad day.
Tina, Im here if you need me love.
To our ever expanding family of Wilsonettes I extend open arms for you to cuddle into if you are sad, unwell and a tad fed up today.
Love to all.

Well done

Karen Knight said...

Hi Sue, What a gorgeous card, which has given me a great idea for a card for my husband. It is our 30th Wedding anniversary coming very soon, and I'd lost my crafting mojo! This has helped to rekindle!!! Thanks, Karen xx.

Carol smith said...

Fantastic flowers sue love the card too x

Lacelady said...

I love the wedding cards Sue, you (as usual) have great ideas. Super day here today, first time this year I've been out without a jacket. It feels more like June than April.

Helen Kington said...

I was just reading the comments and realised mine from earlier did not post it wasn't long just WOW this card does not need many words it is beautiful.

Hope everyone has a good weekend although the weather does not look promising. I even heard one forecast talking about snow for next week!!!!

To all who need I send a big hug and love to this happy crafty family. Helen xx

CraftyJo said...

'Fudge'? what a strange name for this lovely embossing folder :) Should be something 'Mackintosh' looking at the design..maybe it should be the 'CraftyJo' folder (my real name - Joanna Mackintosh!).

Anyway, I do like the card - apart from the flowers know me!

yorkielass said...

Hello Sue, This card is so elegant, love the embossing and the gold roses. Hope you are having a great time, hugs to you and you and your Mom.
Janet K thinking of you on this sad day.
Chris hope you and you and your daughter have a great time in Rome.
Hugs to Tina and Pam, thinking of you.
Steph you have a heart of gold, don't ever change.
Lynne M your tales of the fur babies make me smile, sound like they know how to play your hubby like a violin.
How rude of me I forgot to thank Lynda B for her kind comments of welcome when I went AWOL/
Paperjunkie you make me smile with your antics, good luck at the concert tonight.
Take care everyone.
Hugs June xxx

Hi Sue,
Another cloudy day in Wales, but brightened up by a touch of gold. I agree with CraftyJo on the embossing folder. It's a lovely design but so strangely titled. A classy, sophisticated card, great design for a golden wedding anniversary.

magpie said...

Helloooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Ooooo Sue what a stunning card! Love the embossing folder and how you lined up all those beautiful gold roses....just gorgeous and fit for any card really. Hope you are having a wonderful time with your mom and having a rest.......mmmm but this is you Sue! Lol! Thank you Sue for your inspiration. You truly deserve the recognition that you are having and so chuffed that you have so many followers. I bet the family followers who were here for you from the start are so proud to see how far you have come. Wonderful!
Cammeli, hope you can manage a bit of rest too to re-charge your batteries xx Have a wonderful day x
Tina, thinking of you and your dad....xx
Janet, Thinking of you too at the funeral xx
Debbie, glad you met some lovely people yesterday at the craft show xx
Steph, To forget is easy, I've done it myself, horrendous! sending lots of love and hugs to you xx
Paperjunkie, hope you have a wonderful day/night singing. At least nobody can blame you for the!
Lynne, awww bless you duck. Couldn't you dig a small pit in the garden for the little darlings to fall into when they're running off? Or if you've got a tree one of them there nets that will spring into action.....Lol! (Just kidding...mmmmm!) xx It would be a bit like the cartoons of Tom and Jerry....
Norah, love to you too hun xx
To all our Wilsonettes, love and hugs are being sent to you who need them. Take care everybody from a rainy day in Staffordshire too xx Love Karen xx

Marilyn Brandwood said...

Hi Sue

I wonder if you can help. I have been trying to cut out leaves. I have used your latest die and what a nightmare. I have used canvas that I have painted because it gives a great texture and dimension to the leaves. I use this technique with other dies and dont have a problem I have tried wax paper but they still tear when they come out. Any tips?

magpie said...

Awww thank you so much Tina x I did go on a bit didn't I? You don't realise because you are writing in s little box.......! Lol! xx Love Karen xx

Joanna Dickson said...

Good afternoon Sue. I love this embossing definite investment me thinks lol. I desperately need to win the lottery. I would have a proper little studio, with ample storage and fill it with all the products you use. I'd be in crafty heaven. But until that happens which I've more chance of landing on the moon, I will plod along in Jo's space and do the best I can with what I have. (Which really is so much of everything else lol). I think I've finally come to the place I want to be and want to focus on. It gets my juices flowing being able to create something from scratch from dies and folders and of course embellishments. I believe the embellishments give a complete finish to card whatever the design. Oh dear I'm babbling. Getting back to the card. Straight away I thought of 50. Either anniversary or birthday. I think it could fit both occasions.
Wish you all a fab weekend, lots of love, Jo xx

June Horrocks said...

Another stunner today sue love love it thank you for sharing love to you and your mum xx. C

nancyd said...

Tres said...

Hi Sue. A great card today !! I love the white and gold together. The background folder looks lovely. I noticed it is called Fudge. My little Yorkshire Terrier is called Fudge !! I love the matted ovals and the stamp you used for the embossed focal area. The gold flowers and little pearl strings add a lovely finishing touch to the card. Just perfect for a Wedding or Anniversary.
I hope you are having a nice break for a while, before starting on all your new goodies Sue.
Lots of love to you Sue and all the Wilsonettes, love Tres x x x

AnneRD said...

Such a deeply embossed background Sue, it's a really lovely embossing folder, one for the wish list. A stunning card. Anne x

Brooke b said...

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a really stylish card that I love. Oh dear, I think the fudge folder is going to add to the wish-list :)
A miserable day in Central Scotland threatening rain but hoping it brightens up.
Wishing everyone a good week-end.

GMH said...

Hi Sue, hope you are enjoying Florida this week with your family. I was born and raised in West Palm Beach and miss it so much. I have lived in Charlotte, NC for the past 8 years to be near my grand babies and love it.

I was able to catch you on CreateandCraft TV on Sunday morning with the time difference. I am so happy your dies sold out, that is an awesome blessing. I am saving my pennies to get the California Collection, it is so beautiful and I'm sure they will be an excellent addition to my cards.

By the way, love the wedding cards!

Jacqui oakes-alcock said...

One of the best.

SHARICA said...

OMG! I Love Love Love this card .. I so want to make it :)

Lavinia Dow said...

I love the way this card is done real classy for that very special person.You never fail to bring us great cards. Hope you are having a great time with your mum.

Barbara said...

Stunning card Sue, have just received my satin ribbon roses from Sam Poole and they are gorgeous. The embossing folder will now become a sell-out as everyone wants it, just like the lattice one did!!!

Steph, I am on Tramadol painkillers and if I run out or forget to take them the withdrawl symptoms are awful. I tend to get jittery and just feel terrible, have even had weird nightmares!!!
They are a good painkiller though and I couldn't get around without them.

Julie Bee said...

Hi Sue

What a lovely card, soooo pretty, a must try.

Hope your having a lovely time with you mom and family.

Best Wishes

Tina Eldridge said...

Hi Sue,

A really stunning card today, I love the embossing folder. Yet another item I "have to get". My ever growing list is moving me even closer to bankruptcy.

Thank you lovely ladies for your best wishes for dad, he is very up and down. The pneumonia has taken a strong hold, but he is fighting really hard.

On a much lighter note. Myra I loved your slip of the tongue.I thought my goodness you could'nt have put it any stronger for Chris to have a lovely time in Rome. I really did laugh out loud. Thank you X

Kind regards :-)

Tina XX

Debbie Tinks said...

Lovely card Sue ....stunning ...x

Myra P said...

Tina I'm glad you saw the funny side! I was mortified when I saw what I'd done. I usually read and check but not today! Hope not offended anyone as it was a silly mistake! Such a dope!
Still if it made you laugh on a horrid day when you are going through so much I don't feel so bad.
Love to your Dad and you,
Take care!
Love Myra

Sonia Stephenson said...

Hi. Another gorgeous card Sue. Love the embossing folder. Hope your weather is a lot nicer than it is here - looks like rain all weekend :-( On a brighter note all housework done so lots of crafting time for me! :-) hugs to all xxx

Delilah64 said...

Hi Sue,

I love the elegance of this card and also the colour scheme that you have used. The ribbon roses are beautiful.
I must admit that I'm slightly jealous of your US visit, as I love to stock up on crafty bits when I go there for business trips because prices are always so much lower there than in the UK. I haven't been for a while, so really need a trip there soon. I hope you're having a fun time with your Mum.

Nic xx

Diana Sinclair said...

Hello Sue

Oh my goodness! Stunning just doesn't cut it - this card is simply gorgeous. What a fantastic wedding or special anniversary card. A truly special card.


Maureen Killen said...

Good afternoon, I'm always late to the party! As usual, Sue has worked her magic and produced a very pretty and original card, with easy to follow instructions.

I'm totally new to this so not sure as to correct etiquette.

Hi from a national minority! As if we needed government to tell us we cornish are special. Its been a really sunny day here, pity have to work. Sue the card today is fabulous. Lilian

Kylemore Kards said...

Another beautiful card. Can anyone help, I love those cut out leaves - are they a Spellbinders die and if so which set are they in?? The description talks of faux quilled leaves which is confusing me :(

Lis Kervill said...

Hi Sue and Everybody,
Could do with some sunshine down here in Hampshire! 11c, and the heating is on.
It is a good job that we can warm to you, over there, and to your beautiful wedding card today.
That Fudge deep embossing folder is really lovely as is the whole stylish and elegant composition.
Thank you, Sue.
I wonder if the Breakfast Club is in full preparation for Jill's Big Sunday? Are the Snow Birds down, soaking up the sun before returning to more northerly climates? Is Earl ready?
Is Brother Rob putting 91 candles on the cake? I hope that you will destract the fire marshall this year! What a Celebration this is going to be! . I salute you. Sue, for making your lovely Mom the centre of so many good thoughts and wishes.
Love from Lis xx

Janice Robinson said...

Just love this card and your leaves die is jaw dropping gorgeous.

Janice K said...

A gorgeous card, the satin roses and quilled leaves are to die for.x

Anonymous said...

Very elegant card Sue. I just ordered the leaves die from J. Sheen which I think are gorgeous. We met briefly at Ally Pally on Sunday 13th. I thoroughly enjoyed the show but unfortunately when I returned to France the following day, I suffered a stroke. Fortunately it was a small one & after 24 hrs everything had returned to normal but I wasn't discharged from hospital until 23rd. My husband recorded your shows for me so I have been catching up with them & thoroughly enjoying them, thank you. Ann (France)
