Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

 Hello bloggers!!  Today's offering is a milk and vintage gold card combo.  I started by cutting two of the Lattice and Lace Striplet in milk card.  I backed them both with milk card cut from just the outer cutting die for a tone on tone look.  I added them to the sides of my card with mounting foam.  For the focal piece, I used the Ornate Pierced Design Nobles to create a gold frame.  I added a second thinner frame cut out of milk card and glued it on top.  I used the same Lattice and Lace Striplet die to cut some detail for the background behind the frame.  I cut just the inner decorative die three times out of milk card.  I backed it with Vintage gold card, added the frame over it and trimmed away the excess from the edge of the fame.  I cut a small square of the gold card and turned it for a diamond orientation and added it to the centre of the frame with mounting foam.  I cut two Canadian tags, crisscrossed them and added them to the gold card.  I stamped my sentiment and embossed it in gold and cut it out with the Montreal die oval.  I used the Toronto die oval to add a thin gold mat to it.  I embellished the die cuts with cream flatback pearls before adding my usual pierced mat layer, thin gold mat and another milk mat to finish.  You could certainly add some flowers if you wanted, however, I felt that the detailed dies were enough for this card.  Sometimes, less is more isn't it?  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  9" in size.  If you would like to be included in the drawing to win this week's card, just leave me a comment.  The winner of the drawing will be announced on Saturday's blog post.  All for now, Sue x

Gorgeous card Sue. I think you are correct not to add any flowers. Agree it would be too much and take away from the beauty of the dies. Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

Anonymous said...

Morning Sue. WOW Another stunning card. The milk and gold card makes it vintage looking and very elegant. I agree with you that you don't need to put flower's on this one as it would be to over powering and detract from the beautiful striplet die's which have done all the work creating the focal element's on this very classy card.
Take care everyone and hoping you all have a lovely day.
Best Wishes.

CraftySuetoo said...

Hi Sue. Stunning card, love the softness of the milk card against the vintage gold. I'm in total agreement that it doesn't need flowers - they would take the focus away from the beautiful lacy striplet.
Was thinking of you yesterday Maureen. Sue XXX

Lizzybea said...

Hi sue
Another lovely card.
Looks like I am going to have to purchase the noble die sets.
They are so versatile and you use them a lot in your demos.

ecco of sheffield said...

Morning Sue
A very classic SW gift today. Once again your wonderful dies are the stars of the show and who needs anything else when you see how your dies perform.
Classic in every way including the old gold which just gives it the 'finishing touch'. I would just love this to come through my letterbox and as usual I've dusted off my space which is just waiting Sue.

Still no rain here in Burgundy. Water restrictions are getting very close. The next Department along with a good few others are already under restrictions. At least the temps have been down to the upper 20s for the last couple of days, so that's a blessing.

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

BridgetCG said...

Rosalind McLellan said...

Hello Sue

A beautiful card. As you say, less is more and I think adding any further embellishment would spoil the whole design.

I do agree with your sometimes, less is more, personally I think this card is just right. Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes.

Hope you are all well & enjoying good weather, wherever you are? It is another lovely day here, in Rosemarket (near Milford Haven) & I hope it lasts for a few days, as the weather has not been a bit like Summer!
Well Sue, you have produced ANOTHER stunning card, AGAIN! I like the colours of white & gold, as it makes the card look so elegant & classy! Like all the other ladies that have commented, I feel your card looks better without flowers, as the can be overpowering! I would be thrilled to receive a card like this!
I am hoping to be crafting, this afternoon, with some of the new dies I have, designed by a certain talented lady called SUE WILSON!
I hope that whoever is suffering with any kind of problems, be they emotional or physical, will find strength & comfort from the love & support of family & good friends!
Take care of yourselves!

Lorraine Eastwood said...

Good afternoon Sue and fab Wilsonettes,

This is such a little stunner that I can't believe you would want to part with Sue, but thanks to your generosity one of your loyal followers will benefit-how lovely it would look in a gold frame....on my craftroom wall of course!;-), but seriously, good luck to everyone.
I REALLY want the lattice and lace striplet, it is so versatile, to use it as a border and a background is a touch of genius-I agree that flowers would totally detract from the beauty of this die, however anything that stands still long enough in my craftroom is glittered or microbeaded then embellished with flowers, ribbon and the occasional stickpin. At my craft classes the teacher used to say firmly "step away from the glitter Lorraine!" But to no avail. I have to keep repeating less is more and stick to it, especially when the dies are so beautiful in their own right.
Had another rough night with Darcey, she refused to come home for her supper until 3.30am! It is becoming a weekly occurrence now and I am developing bags to prove it-the little minx has spent all morning snoozing to add insult to injury.
I'm catching up on your you tube demos just now Sue whilst I wait for my hair dye to develop, that's what I call multitasking!
Janet, I am sooo jealous of your gorgeous weather, I just wish it would spread to Scotland-one things for sure I don't think we've had a hosepipe ban since the seventies!:-)
Wishing everyone a lovely day whatever you are doing.

Loads of love and crafty hugs,

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and I love the milk and gold together. There is plenty of detail but it is not overly busy. I love flowers but this card certainly doesn't need them.

Dorothy Mutafopulos said...

Hi Sue,
Love this card . I truly like that gold color its just right . I ordered most of your Xmas dies waiting for 2 to be back in stock so I can get the rest. I have a die bin set a side just with your dies since I love them so much . Just wishbi had more time to craft. But I am planning to just make a craft day so I can play with your dies.
Thank you Dorothy

I am a big fan of less is more and sometimes feel cards can be overloaded with toppers, die cuts etc.
You always seem to get it just right.

Deb Curtis said...

Hi Sue and fellow crafters
this card is stunning, so elegant and vintage looking. I wasn't sure about the lattice and lace striplets when I first saw them, I couldn't get past just cutting them out and plonking them on a card but Sue you have really shown their versatility in this card. I've seen them used in different ways on a few cards now and they are defo on my shopping list, they look gorgeous. This card would be great for a Golden Wedding but a quick swap of gold for silver would be great for Silver Weddings too. Such a clever idea to crisscross the tags too to make a square centrepiece, Sue is there no end to your ingenuity?!
Hey does anyone know Elizabeth Beale? Just wondering if your OK Elizabeth, not seen you on the blog for ages & missed reading your comments, sending hugs.
Love and hugs to all my crafty friends

Hi Sue

What a beautiful card. It is so lacy and elegant and clever use of the striplet dies. Could be used for so many different types of cards, especially with different colours.

Morning Sue.
Love the card.
It has me guessing for a wee while. hmmm I play a game with myself with the cards that are made using your dies. I only look at the first image. Then try to work out what dies have been used. This one had me thinking a bit harder then normal. I looked at all the dies cuts you used, then realised you had used a striplet die 2 times for the center, with out the cutting edge. Totally awesome look.
Have you tried it with your new xmas one? The one with the stars? I think that would look out of this world. I would do it but don't have the die. Have to save up for it.
Sweet dreams.

Good evening Sue,
What a delightful card you have created for us today. The soft gold and milk card look beautiful together. Even though there is quite a lot of detail in this card I like the simplicity of it and I agree it doesn't need any thing extra. I love how you have created the background from your Striplet, so clever. Thank you for the opportunity of winning this beauty.

Love and hugs for all

Hello Sue,
My Wednesday give away card arrived this afternoon. Sue it looks
even better in the flesh. THANK YOU I will treasure it. xxx

Today's card is gorgeous, love the soft gold it works so well with coconut white.
Neither colours are in your face but together they make a statement.
The layout on this card, is great, and shows the dies off to perfection.

Take care, Love and Hugs, Brenda xxx

Such a pretty card. Love the vintage gold.
Does anyone manage to comment using their mobile phone? I used to be able to when I didn't have broadband but for the last few weeks I haven't been able to get past the robot catcher. It just seems to be in a loop, setting test after test even when I know I've chosen the right pictures.
Take care everyone.

Sharon McClard said...
