Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hi guys!  Now that things are back to usual, it is another Wednesday card giveaway!  This card was the first demo that I did on the weekender shows.  I really liked the way it came out with the shadow effect.  I started by cutting two of the Scandinavian backgrounds, one in coconut white card an one in black card.  I added mounting foam between them to raise it a bit for dimension but you could just glue them together offsetting them to create the drop shadow effect.  I cut out the centre of the die with scissors so that I could recess the sentiment down a bit further. I stamped the sentiment on white card and centred it behind the cut out opening and glued it into place.  Next I cut a frame by using the outside die from the Oslo die set and the inside die from the Stockholm set.  I added mounting foam to the back and attached it over the sentiment area.  I cut a bunch of the smallest sizes of the Complete Camellia and formed them, glued a black pearl centre and arranged them around the sentiment (even a few on to the frame where I had gotten a smudge mark!)  I added my finishing mats and did the Cosmic Shimmer white PVA glue dots around the edge of the inside white mat.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x 8 1/4" in size.  Leave a comment if you would like to be included in the drawing to win this one.  The winner will be announced on Saturday's blog post!  All for now, Sue x

Mrs B said...

Hi Sue. This is a beautiful card, another lovely pretty one. I love the shadow effect and the flowers are gorgeous, you are so clever at placing them to cover that mark : )
Sandra, thanks for letting us know Cam is ok as we are missing her. (See you and Pat later on : ))
Sending my daily hugs to everyone. Take care.

Jan.moogie said...

Well Sue saw you make this card on C&C loved it then and want to win or make it for myself. Saw a few of the shows and loved it. Thank you so much for all you do for us crafters we appreciate it so so much. Look after yourself. Hugs xxx

Love this card

Patricia Youdell said...

Morning Sue
This a cute card, I like the shadow technique
Pat x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. Im so glad that your dies were appreciated so much over the weekend, I know I dont have many myself but I thought I was the minority, I was shocked that so many crafter's hadn't got them. I suppose that because we now have the Spring 2015 collection to be excited about, your previous collection seem 'old' now !! Hope you all understand what im trying to say lol I know what I mean lol.
Anyway it was great to hear so many familiar names, Pam, Jan, Patricia, Barbie and Sandra (forgive me for not mentioning more) and for Pam to win this card just topped off the hour for me with a big cheesy grin : ) that's 2 in one week Pam well done.
I agree, the CSDC glue IS invisible with vellum providing you use a drop and spread, sounds like a dance craze.
Its a beauty, and yet again the photography is superb.
Love to you all.
Lancashire Steph xx

Maria Illsley said...

A great card Sue thanks for the technique on how you created the sentiment middle xxx

Evelene said...

The shadow effect of the background and the aperture give the card a very elegant and different look. Nice to have it.

AliJ said...

Hi Sue Really like this card. Will haveto try the shadow technique.

CraftySuetoo said...

Hi Sue. Beautiful card and I love the sentiment. I'm always scared to cut into the backgrounds as they are so pretty but I will be brave and try to follow your example. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Anonymous said...

Great card, Sue, love the dropped shadow and the teeny camellia flowers. Like the way you have chopped out the centre (gasp!) to recess the sentiment.
Received the Noble PR's yesterday, oh my they are nice, but couldn't resist re-pricking the pierced edges for more definition!

'P' in Wales

Sandra - thanks for message re Cameeli - please tell her she is missed and hope OK soon.

Muriel Kelly said...

Hi Sue and all
the shadow effect is lovely, again I go back to my dies and see which ones I can do it with. The flowers are so sweet and it is heartening to know you smudge too lol !
Muriel x

Rosie said...

The Scandinavian background is lovely.

Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
This is a really pretty card. I love the shadow effect with the die and as the flowers on the frame look so effective, the smudge was a happy accident! Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win this lovely card. Fingers crossed.
Have a great day everyone.

BridgetCG said...

Hello Sue, this card is lovely, love the little flowers and the shadow effect is great, would love to win it. Nice to know I am not the only one that uses strategically placed embellishments to hide a smudge or oops. Have a great day. Bx

Sandra said...

Good Morning Sue,
This was your first lovely demo on the weekend, it's nice to see a good close up, such a different way to use your dies and those cute little Camellia flowers are divine! Hugs xxxx
Well an early start for me. Paul is away so it was my head that Milo (kitten) decided to come and do a jig around at 05.10 am, little devil!
He is very persistent, so I have been up since 05,20, cats fed, now back in bed with a cup of tea and a dark chocolate digestive! Naughty but nice!
Looking forwards to Pat & Sue coming over today too!
Oh I almost forgot, my Gorgeous Sue Card arrived , it is just stunningly amazing! More so in real life!
Thank you Sue!!!.
Love & hugs
Sandra xxxx

Morning Sue. This is a really pretty card. I have never tried the shadow technique. So i will behaving a play later today because i have this die so hopefully it will be a perfect match but i think i might change the colour and try it in white and teal. The flowers are little beauties.
Still very cold and icey this morning so take care everyone.
Best Wishes.

June said...

Morning Sue, Pam and all Wilsonettes, I saw you making this on the show and loved it, you wouldn't think that by offsetting the backgrounds how beautiful it would look until you actually see it, loved the colours used as well. Another technique to add to my list.

Have a great Wednesday everyone, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

AnnetteM said...

I loved this card when I saw it on the show and copied the shadow technique with my floral meadow strilet. It worked really well and I was pleased with the resulting card.
I now need the camellia closed petals, as I got the open petals for Christmas and they work so well together.
There is always something I "need"!
Best wishes, Annette

Hi Sue such a beautiful card, I just love the colours and your dies are just wonderful x

Great card. Really like the shadow effect must try it myself.

Stunning card , I love the shadow technique as it shows off the die beautifully.

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue
I saw you do today's gift on Sat and loved it then. I have to say that I 'cringe' when I see you cut into your gorgeous dies as I always think they are just too beautiful to distress in any way. Your colour palette is beautiful and so not in your face which makes it a delight to start the day. I have to say that although I enjoyed last week I'm so pleased that everything is now back in place and where everything should be.

Mrs B - do we have any news yet?
Sandra - I see you three lovely ladies are to get your day together today so have a lovely day.
Steph - hope you managed to get your cards finished.

It's going to be a 'tidying up on scrap drawer' today. I know before I start that very little will be discarded but at least my head will know it's been done!!
My -Sue space- is dusted off and ready - well one can hope lol.

To all in pain or suffering I hope you day gets better. To everyone please take care and stay safe. See you tomorrow.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and all my Wilsonette friends,
This is such a lovely card Sue and with the tiny little blossoms scattered around it, just finishes it off a treat for me. I do like how you have made the center's of the various places differing sizes just so that we can have the luxury of making small frames to match our projects. I do like the blue and white idea with the shading of the black as it is just a hint of, which for me works. Thank you Sue for another gorgeous WOW.
Tracy (Stitt) can your friend take a detour to Glasgow via Glenochil, i promise to be good and not wander off? Is it a Hillington the shop or more in the actual centre of Glasgow? Either way enjoy your time there as i love going into Aladdin's cave of craft or wool shops. See that's the eyes all glazed over just at the thought of it. I used to love a rummage through wee shops that had everything in them in all the nooks and crannies. Not so good in a chair or scooter but oh how you never knew just what you were going to find. Nowadays most shops look half empty so that they can let people like me on a bad day in with room to move around. Have fun with your friend any how Tracy as you never know just what delights you might find.
Woo hoo it's the 3 graces day to make mayhem and beauty, have fun Sandra, Mrs B and Pat, i wonder what fabulous things your going to come up with today.
Well Kirsten texted me yesterday with her wants for baby which was fine but i have to make a few alterations namely she want's this particular 4ply set in double knitting and a round instead of a v and no cables in it but the pattern has, she'll accept the wee 3 knit and 1purl st/ purl all the way back. She wants a tammie, no hood which i prefer as it keeps the cold of their wee necks and backs as well. I have put on my waitress apron and her baby mop cap to ask if there is anything else madam would like while i am about it. I used to love colouring in when i was small and even yet i still love to do it, but i found antarsia(picture knitting) knitting and fell in love with being able to use different colours to make up something special. Well my favourite making like Thomas the Tank going across the viaduct bridge with the hills, trees, clouds, grass etc and it goes all the way around the jumper with the sleeves being an intregril part as well. I made Rory for going to USA a cardigan in aran weight wool a blue cardigan with wee pockets on the arms and a red row of colour on the borders, wrists, pockets, but on the back stands Mickey Mouse in his silver star spangled royal blue trousers with his red and white striped jacket with waistcoat and white shirt and royal blue dickie bow tie and a top hat that has the silver starts around the bottom edge with the red and white stripes making up the hat. My Kirsten.... "Well you can forget making any that rubbish for mine as he's no wearing that". My friend and her daughter are trying to pinch the picture cardigans and jumpers for their wee lad because they haven't seen anything like it and mine thinks it horrible. Oh where did i go so wrong....
Anyway i will be having a wee play around to see what i can make for the wee one coming that he can where at Granny's house and when he is out with me.
Have a lovely day everyone and hugs to all my angels.
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Morning all! Reading some of the comments I think i'd like to meet some of you guys, trouble is living all the way down in Cornwall makes that unlikely. You all seem to care for each other which is great. But back to the card, I love it. I like the way I can mix and match Sue's dies, i'm certainly going to have a go at this, or something like it. Love to all Sarah

Susan Richardson said...

When you demonstrated this card I loved it. I can't wait for your dies to arrive so I can start crafting.
Will be recording all your shows when your back on create and craft.

Hi Sue,
This card sings to me, I loved it when you made it on one of your shows and it's such a treat to be able to see it close up. It's beautiful, those itty bitty flowers are cute.
Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue this is such a pretty card and I only winced a little bit when you cut out the centre bit! Lol. The little flowers are gorgeous and just right for covering those pesky smudges! Have a great day. Love Diane G xxx
Norah that jumper sounds lovely, does it go up to adult sizes! Xxx
Sam good idea taking your phone and stick with you, especially when you are out so early! The man probably got to work and said there was a funny lady with a stick glaring at him when he walked to work! Xxx
