You're Amazing

 Hi bloggers!  Today's card offering is one that I did for a new magazine article for Die Cutting Essentials, issue 4 (now available).  I thought I would post it here in case you didn't see it!  I started by embossing a piece of milk card with the Checkerboard Pinpoint embossing folder for a bit of texture to my background.  Next I cut four of the Arched Lattice Adornment out of milk card.  I glued two of the to the top and bottom centres of the card.  I cut a square of blush card and glued the remaining two of them so that the flat edges came together in the centre.  I mounted it in the centre of the card with the seams going down the very centre of the card.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the centre of the Canadian tag and used some Tattered Rose distress ink to shade it while still in the die.  I cut a Canadian tag out of milk card to seat it upon.  I added a double row of cream pearls down both sides of the card as an embellishments.  Finally, I cut a Greek Island Border out of milk card and inked it with both Antique Linen and Tattered Rose and cut it in half and added each piece diagonally across the card, tucking the ends under the tag.  I added a milk pierced mat, a thin blush mat layer and another milk mat.  The finished size is 7" x  8 3/4".  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue

Lovely card I have just looked at die cutting essentials and it looks a good magazine but a bit too expensive for my pocket.

I love all the cards you create. How much of a border do you leave for the different layers? How do you mail them out? I used some small dies and created a card to give to a friend but the smaller size just doesn't cut it. I have looked on the internet for some of your dies but have not been able to find the newer dies. Why can't I order from Creative Expressions?
