You're Delightful

Good morning all!  Today's card was one of my demos from the last shows.  I thought you might enjoy a close up view of it.  I started with the background and embossed a piece of coconut white card with the Tartan Trellis embossing folder for texture.  Using a piece of Amethyst satin ribbon, I taped the end to the back of the top centre of the card and let it trail down the middle of the card.  Next I stamped Lilac card with the Delicate Deco Square using a Black Archival ink pad.  I did two of these.  On the first one, I used the Herald Square to cut it into a frame (lg die and smaller square die were used.  On the second one, I covered it with a piece of sticky adhesive sheet, peeled the backing paper off and coated it with Diamond Snow glitter. I cut it out with the same set of dies as the first one.   I used my guillotine to remove the edge with the piercing holes all the way around.  Using Dusty Concord distress ink, I inked the exposed edge through the glitter with a piece of cut 'n dry foam.  I added mounting foam to the back of this piece and placed it on top of the other square frame so it had the pierced border showing from underneath.  The reason that I stamped the first one, even though I was covering it, was that it allowed me to line up the centres evenly.  If I had just guessed at where the centre of the square was, it may have been very off from where it actually was using the stamp as my guide.  I adhered the frame in the centre of my card over the ribbon.  Next I stamped my sentiment (from the Delightful Sentiment clear stamp set by Cr. Exp.) and covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I coated it with Diamond Snow for a bit of bling.  I cut the inside frame from the Union Square and mounted it over the sentiment and trimmed away the excess card from below.  I added mounting foam and attached it in the centre of my frame.  I tied a double bow from the Amethyst satin ribbon and added it at the top of my card with glue dots and placed a white crystal sparkler in the centre.   The card was then finished with a pierced coconut white card mat, a thin Lilac card mat and a final white card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Apologies for not commenting yesterday on the beautiful card. Your writing made me cry and I didn't get the chance to go back later. I may miss commenting for a couple of weeks, as I am going to look after my mum, but I shall continue reading your blog every day and commenting when possible.

What a truly elegant way to start the week and along with the little sunshine we have here at the moment it certainly lifts my heart.
I love your colour palette; it being so royal and having seen your new Tartan Efolder I have decided it's a must have/definitely NEED on my every growing list.
I hope you're enjoying your much deserved holiday Sue.

Norah - you are so missed. Looking forward to having you back where you belong.
Steph - hope everything is going well with your stay in Hospital. If not our Escape Plan and Bag are packed and ready lol.

Well today's the day I try and make a 'Izzy Bag'. Please wish me luck; I know I'll need it. lol.

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

Love the stamp as it really sets the frame off. Makes a beautiful frame even for a picture.
