Friendship

 Hello blog friends!  I just love the simplicity of today's card offering.  I started by cutting the Canadian Background die out of coconut white card.  I just love this die and it has proven to be so useful (as I hope to show you on many later blog posts!)  I used it here in it's simplest form, just using the outside cutting die to create a rectangle border around my card.  I picked custard card to use with it and added mounting foam to the background and seated it over the custard card for a soft yellow creamy background.  I cut the Montreal die in white using both the inner and outer cutting edges to create a frame.  I backed it with a custard card cut out, gluing them together then reseating the inside die for a clean cut to my frame.  I added mounting foam to the back of the frame, then stamped my sentiment on another piece of white card.  I covered it with an adhesive sheet, then coated it with Diamond Sprinkles.  I added glue to my mounting foam on the back of the frame then seated in over my sentiment.  I cut away the excess from around the edge then glued it in the centre of the background. I added small white flatback pearls to the background as embellishments.   I completed the card with my usual paper pierced edge (by using my piercing ruler) and a custard mat and a final white mat.  The finished dimensions are 6" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

CraftySuetoo said...

Hi Sue. The Canadian background is fast becoming my all-time favourite, I really like having the option to either cut the whole pattern or to leave the centre piece out. This card is so pretty, the custard card is just the perfect colour.
Can't believe that it's Friday already; why do holiday weeks go faster than work weeks? Sue xxx

Good morning Sue & Wilsonettes, what a beautiful card Sue, a stunning Gem as always to brighten our mornings...even when you use the minimum of dies & embellishments Sue you always manage to create stunning effects & I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed if they were to receive this from a crafting card maker.

Cheryl I would also like to congratulate you on the birth of your great grandchild, how thrilled you must be & so good to hear that your family with their lovely new addition are all doing so well...may all their moments together be as wondrous & as happy for years to come as they are in these precious early moments. Sending hugs x x x

Alison...my thoughts are with you but it is wonderful to know that you are able to share giggles in your thoughts of your beloved Aunty...the healing process will be for as long as you need it to...there are certainly no set time limits on recovering from the loss of a loved one. Hope you enjoyed your lunches with your previous colleagues...anyways Alison sending you hugs & smiles x x x

I shall be popping over to leave a well deserved comment on yesterdays card post...could not find the time(Sorry Sue)as I had an absolute full morning then had to spruce myself up for the Workshop with Julia Watts in the afternoon...it was the first one I had ever been to & as I am shy around new people then I was a little apprehensive...but I needn't have worried as Julia was fantastic...John also popped in for a while & he was brilliant helping me through some of the techniques...they are both very lovely down to earth people...in fact everyone was very nice & I would certainly go again. The card making was brilliant the atmosphere stupendous & I learnt quite a few fantastic tips...& the laughs well I almost split my sides especially when I disgraced Sue Wilsons lovely noble die by embossing upside down...how shameful of me...lol...what a numpty but a good laugh had by us all...lol

I'm sending hugs & smiles to you all & wishing you a great day...Love Beth B x x x

Hi Sue,
Another very pretty card, really like the background die. Very summery look too.
Beth thank you again for your comment and really pleased that you enjoyed your workshop. I'm also a bit reticent about going on my own to new things, so pleased that you made the effort and that it was worth it. My birthday afternoon tea was absolutely fabulous - beautiful hotel, lovely food and very good friends. Back to reality today trying to work out how to fit in a shower enclosure and change the bathroom all around. Just at the planning stage at moment but the thought of all that mess!!!
Have as good a day s possible everyone, love Alison xxx

Anne Crawford said...

Love Love Love this card! This was also my favourite die ( although I'd love to have them all ) from the last collection , it took me three times ordering it before I managed to get it as it kept selling out! So guess what I'll be trying to reproduce today Lol!
I was tempted to buy another die from the new collection yesterday from JS before the intro deal finishes but instead I ordered the flags ( I couldn't resist NEEDING them any longer ) tehe!
Love and hugs to all xo

Ecco of Sheffield said...

Morning Sue from a very very wet Sheffield. In fact I've got the central heating on for a while as it's more like Winter!!!

Today's gift is just beautiful and as you have just proven your dies really do do all the work to create such a beautiful gift. Your Canadian background so reminds me of quilts and once again this die has gone onto my NEED list. You are one very tempting lady Sue Wilson. lol.

Well although it's raining as though there's no tomorrow there will will not be any crafting for me today. Friday morning usual timetable of the dreaded housework and then off to the other dreaded place of Physio this afternoon. I wonder what they will come up with this time but as my youngest Daughter tells me 'it keeps someone in employment Mum' in her dry tone of voice.

I just know that afterwards it will be sat recovering for the rest of the day.

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

Poochies asleep now after a chase around on the small green outside our house. Tilly a bit worse for wear as Cully kept pouncing on her and then tried out various wrestling moves. Informed Cully that ladies do not behave like that but she had the glazed look in her eyes again which I know means what I was saying was going in one ear and out the other. Oh well, at least I try to make them more ladylike, talk about uphill battle.

Hi Sue. I have just bought your Canadian background but haven't had time to play with it yet. I can't see yet how you get the blank centre, or perhaps it is overlaid with another die cut. I'm sure when I use it all will become clear. Your card has made me want to craft. SueL x

Norah McPhee said...

Good afternoon Sue and the Wilsonettes,
Well Sue you are just trying to get our little brain cells working but mines has went on strike. I thought that the Canadian back ground die was full of the boxes and piercing and yet you have managed just to get it to do a frame work around the outside of the focal point and i can't for the life of me work out how you have done it. A beautiful card Sue in the white and custard, just right for a lovely summers day bringing fresh and clean to our eyes. I haven't got any of the Canadian range yet as pennies not forth coming but it doesn't stop me from enjoying all the beauty that you bring to us each day, so thank you Sue for the unstinting support that you give to us.
A Beautiful day up here at the Ochils today although not hot it is a lovely bright day with the clouds passing over leaving their shadows to follow on behind over the hills. I hope that you are all having a lovely day
Love and crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

Hi Sue, this is such a fresh, clean looking card. Would cheer someone up! Would make a good 'get well soon' card.

Hi Sue
Gorgeous card, I love this background die, it was the first one of this collection I bought and I can't wait to see what else you do with it in future posts. Love custard in any form, hot, cold, or in this case as a background. It's just yummy.

Love and hugs

Evening Sue
Know what you mean about the simplicity of this card but it is so lovely. Beautifully simple!!
This background die is an absolute got to, need to must get die! Mind you so are most of your dies as far as I'm concerned.
Hope everyone has had a good week and have something nice planned for the weekend. Hoping to get the chance to copy a few 'Sue' cards and try out my new 'smoothies'.

Helloooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! I love this Canadian background die, it's so so pretty. Along with the soft custard card, the sprinkles and the Montreal die, a gorgeous card has been created, (one of many!). I can't wait to see all the other cards that you have made with the Canadian background die! Glad you had a great time Beth at the Julia's workshop. Johanna, I don't think you're the only one who's got a "back seat driver" as we call them. I hope you manage to build your confidence up as it would be a shame not to go on a workshop day. Awwww nice to see you Norah xxx Lynne, you can't say that there is a day that's boring with your dastadly divas.....just sometimes you wish for a rest no doubt lol! Alison, good luck with your bathroom x "Thank you" Sue for the inspiration that you give us. Sending love and hugs to you, your family and to our Wilsonettes who need some Love Karen xx

Hi Sue. This card is just beautiful !! You have made such a wonderful card from just two dies !! I fell in love with both of these dies from your new Canadian Collection when you very first released them. The entire Canadian Collection is moving rapidly towards the top of my long wish list !! I think the Montreal die set looks so very cute !! I really love the background die in this set to. I think it is very pretty. I love those smart little flowers all lined up !! I also really love your colour combo for this card. The white and custard look lovely together. I am just finishing a card using milk and straw coloured foundations card stock. The two colours look so lovely together, so cheerful and Summery !! Great friendship sentiment to. Really I just love everything about this card today !! Many thanks for sharing it Sue. Take care. Sending you lots of love from Tres x x x

Sending lots of love to all the Wonderful Wilsonettes today from Tres x x x

The Canadian dies a fast becoming my favorites Sue!

Sandy H said...

Beautiful card. I didn't remember that this die had a centre die that could be left out to create the look you have here or added to create a complete block. So I spent ages looking at the close-ups and trying to work out how you had made this card. Such a clever idea. Think I need this die now if I can find anywhere that still has it in stock.
Take care everyone.

Hello Sue
Although i had looked at your card early yesterday I was in a rush, intending to comment later and of course, forgot!
However It is such a lovely card and so I though "Better late than never"!
This die is so versatile and could be used in many ways and that is why it is on my list.

Hi Sue. I bought your Canadian background die last week along with the Happy Birthday die and I have used both together to make really pretty and quick last minute birthday cards. So happy you have designed your own dies, I love them all. xx
