Striplet Channel Card

Hi crafters!   Channel cards are one of my favourite go to card layouts.  They can be created in so many ways, but today's video shows you how to use the Ornate Octagon Striplet to create a lovely channel in your card.

 The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all,
a beautiful pastel card today, love the Grace die and all channel cards. The flowers are pretty with their white embossing and trailing ivy.

'P' in Wales and Diane I just wish we could share and all have lovely weather. I leave bulbs in my garden here and add some to them each year, last year had some lovely snowdrops, freesias and bluebells but the daffodils and jonquils don't seem to like it here at all unfortunately. I will look for some other varieties this year.

Another lovely card today, this really shows off the ornate octagons and they are so pretty & lace like. Haven't made a channel card yet but it's on my list to try. You give us so many techniques, thank you Sue. Hope you are coping, take care.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Oh Sue what can I say, it's stunningly pretty, such a delicate colour and beautiful design. I became addicted to the Wisteria card after a good friend surprised with a pack. I will certainly be watching your tutorial a little later after ordering my foils to start foiling your dies (Debbies fault) I feel another addiction coming on lol.
Today's card sentiment comes right back to you Sue xxx

Sorry I missed a few days. Yesterday was my birthday and my husband whisked me off to Atlantic City to celebrate. We'll be here until Saturday morning then hubby will drop me off in Manhattan to meet up with my daughter, my best friend and her daughter to see a play and then have dinner. On Sunday we'll celebrate again with my daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren at a favorite restaurant. Yes, I'm being spoiled and I love it.

Have a beautiful day everyone!

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, channel cards are not usually one of my favourites but I really like this one. Maybe it's because of the striplet and the colours you have used, I don't know, but it appeals to me quite a lot. Great video as usual.

Alison - I hope Scamp has not been told off by the vet for her Houdini style escape but more importantly hope that she hasn't set her recovery back.

Jan from Long Island - wow, what an amazing few days you have lined up - enjoy!

Thinking of everyone who is under the weather for one reason or another, hope you all feel better soon.

Pearl said...

Beautiful lacy card from yesterday Sue, I couldn't comment yesterday as I was on election duty at a local school - out at 6.15 am and not back until 10.45 pm, a long day but it went well and I'll have earned some cash to buy some crafty goodies. The channel card is great and I'll watch the video later when I've fully recovered from yesterday - I have a cold too so everything is a bit foggy at present, hope it clears up soon, I've had it for a few days now so it should be getting better. At least my hubby, who had the same thing and felt very bad for a while is over it now so I should be feeling good soon. I hope everything is okay with you Sue.
