Wednesday Weekly Card Giveaway

Hello bloggers!  Today's card giveaway is a relatively flat card, at least compared to my usual style!  I started by cutting an aperture in a piece of Iris card using the oval from the Cathedral Background die set.  Next I embossed the aperture piece with the Wild Roses embossing folder.  I used the negative side so the roses appear debossed and I ran a Clear Perfect Medium pad over the top to darken the surrounding card (like a reverse letterpress technique).  It is very subtle but it does help accent the pattern.  I used the smaller oval from the Cathedral Background and cut another aperture but this time out of black card.  I glued it behind the Iris card so it created an frame around the inside of the aperture.  I used the decorative die from that set and cut it out of coconut white card.  I attached a piece of sticky adhesive sheet behind the decorative cut out area and glittered it, then attached it behind the aperture.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the Pierced Flags and matted it with a slightly larger flag.  I tucked the end under the oval in the background.  Using the Blushing Rose die set, I cut three out of black card and backed them with vellum for a translucent look.  I attached them around the oval using Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue as it works great with vellum and doesn't show when used sparingly.  I cut a few of the leaves out of vellum and added those as well as accents.  I completed the card by piercing a white mat, adding a thin Iris and thin black mat and a last mat of white.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"x  8 1/4" in size.  Leave me a comment to be entered into the drawing to win this one!  All for now,Sue x

Hello Sue and all

Like Jan, I thought Easter when I saw this lovely card, beautiful colours and can see it in those lovely pastel Easter colours too. The debossed side of the EF looks great as well with that little bit of highlight.

Hi Sue
I used the rose die for my Mum's Mother's day card and love that die, we sometimes need flat cards with the price of postage.

Happy crafting
Love and big hugs to everyone
Love Tina xxxx

crossstitchmarg said...

Morning Sue,
A lovely card today.
Thanks for sharing with us. Without your inspiration I would be scratching my head wondering what to do with my dies.
Oh and I bought both sets of the noble rectangles yesterday, Both the squares and rectangles make it easier to mat and layer. I spent yesterday die cutting a lot of the dies out in white card, and plan to use the colour cloud inks & gilding wax, like Phil showed on his shows rather than using coloured card.
Thanks again for sharing your talent with us.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

This card layout would make a wonderful template for batch-making a whole pile - just ring the changes with colours and swap embossing folders and then the most appropriate sentiment added at the last minute...

I do love that rose die set...


Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue.
Oh my word Pam, I remember your post so we'll, I remember how we were all so shocked, 2yrs of showing us what a strong woman you are after everything else you have also been through since then. Like the pansie flowers I prefer your dies that can be moulded and formed, but agree, they help with posting etc.
Another lovely giveaway, you are so kind. I dread to think just how many you would have at home if it wasn't for your generosity throughout the year, not forgetting those adorable yearly orphans.
Sending much love xxx

SueJ said...

This is a lovely giveaway Sue, thank you.
I love the dies and folder used, great card.

hettygarlick said...

What a beautiful, classy card! I love the vellum leaves, and using vellum for the background of the roses is a marvellous idea. I must try that!

Diane said...

Hi Sue
What a different card today but it really shows off that lovely embossing folder and that wonderful die. The flowers look great backed with velum, how many of us had thought of that! Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx
Pam have a hug from me today too, I can't believe it's 2 years xxx

Evis M said...

Hi Sue.
Very wet and windy here in S.Wales today. A very interesting card. It reminds me that flat cards are just as good as built up ones, especially if they are to go in the post. I will certainly give this card a try.
Take care,
Evis M.

Hi Sue. This is very different for you. Sometimes we do need a flatter card for posting don't we and making flowers from vellum makes them lighter too. SueL x

Beautiful embossing on this card the colours and your gorgeous flowers


Yvonne G said...

Morning Sue
Hope you are impressed with my promptness today - don't be fooled - it won't become a habit.
Wowee. Love this. It is so eye catching. I know that many people are not keen on black but I really think that it makes your cards 'pop'. Iris is such a delightful colour and really appeals to my taste.
I have now begun my countdown to 1st April. SOOOOOO looking forward to having the queen of crafting back on our screens. I have a holiday in the Isle of Wight to look forward to before that but would it be wrong of me to say that my excitement levels are greater at the prospect of seeing you and all your fabulousness. Lots of love x
Lots of rain as I look out of the window. Not much on but have the girls coming round this evening for our weekly Appreciation Society meeting. Tea and cake methinks x
THERESA W - I did manage to get my sheets on the line yesterday. Much inhaling took place and you can imagine my delight when I went to bed last night. Fresh sheets - what a joy x
BARBARA - you are Woman and you can do it. Hang in there hun. Lots of love x
LAINE - before I 'met' you I was a fine upstanding member of the community. It has not taken long for you to drag me down to your distasteful level with such subtlety that I had not even noticed that I am now along side you in the gutter. You obviously realised how much more pulchritudinous I was than you and just couldn't handle my being so cultured in comparison to you. Let's face it, the North/South divide is well and truly evident when it comes to you and me. You can aspire to obtain just a tad of my obvious upper class attributes but - well dream on peasant x
LORRAINE - your family and I appreciate your efforts to smell a bit sweeter. Jokes aside - big huggles x
WHEELY BAD - sparing??? Oh I mean every word. Laine thinks she is far better than the rest of us (lol). Someone needs to bring her down a peg or 2 and I am willing to take on that task on behalf of everyone. Glad you are enjoying your new sports car x
HELEN - hope antibiotics have kicked in. Sending more hugs x
MAUREEN - I make a stove top rice pudding using risotto rice. No nutmeg but vanilla extract and it is delicious x
PAM - sending you a warm hug. Lots of love x
TINA - I am so pleased that you managed to have a lovely day yesterday x
Ok folks. Not quite sure what I should be doing. I am not usually conscious at this time of the day so it is a bit of a novelty. Possibly a bowl of porridge and a Jeremy Kyle viewing - it always makes me laugh and makes me feel a lot better about my life - don't think that is Jeremy's intention but needs must x
Sending smiles, love and happy thoughts to you all.
Crafty hugs

Tressa said...

Lovely card, the black sure makes it pop. Agree that the flat card is often a necessity with our postal rates these days so it is good to see how one can produce a little work of art quite simply. Adore the vellum flowers, they are ace.

Hi Sue. Nice to get some ideas for flat cards which will help to keep those pesky postage charges down. Nice idea to use vellum in this way. Thanks for sharing. P.s. the Cathedral die is one of my special favourites.

Bejay Roles said...

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, Sue...and the card is very pretty too lol.
I've added the rose dies to my ever growing wish list, they look so dramatic cut out in black and how inspiring to back them with vellum. I think this is a card we would all love to win :).
Pam, sending hugs your way today. I lost my next-door neighbour last week and she is being laid to rest today. She was only in her 40's and the mis-diagnosis of IBS grew into terminal stomach cancer. What a miserable day it is for a farewell, gale force winds have been blowing since last night.

On a happier note, my amaryllis now has a flower stalk that's over 2' tall. I'm wondering just when it's going to decide to actually open up and give me a show. It's a gift from my sister and I've never seen it in flower before. She was given the original bulb back in the 90's by her ma-in-law and over the years it produced over a dozen baby bubs. When she moved house she gave me one of the tubs and so far, two of the bulbs in there have flower stalks. Fingers crossed for a beautiful this space lol.

Hi Sue,
Lovely card, wish I had loads of vellum like Wendy from Scotland. They make beautiful flowers, all kinds of.
I LOVE the Cathedral die, every little bit of it is so versatile. And the roses - well, with a name like mine, they've got to be a favourite.
That Iris is a beautiful blue.
Hugs, Rose

Margaret Rogers said...

Hi Sue
A lovely card, and just about the right size for me.
Can I put in a request for a video tutorial using the Australian Background Die. My daughter bought it for me as a Mother's day gift. I have made a card using just the outside edge and the diamond lattice layer, which I cut into a seperate panel 4 times and puttng a background behind it before adding it to the first layer and adding to a card, but it would be nice to get some more inspiration.

Well, it's a beautiful day here on Long Island in New York. The temperatures are expected to be way above normal. A great day to open the windows and let some fresh air in. I think I'll attempt to straighten up my craft room lol. I'm sure when I get in there, I'll get distracted.

Have a beautiful day everyone!

Hugs to all!

Hi Sue,
Very apt card with Easter being just around the corner. Love the vellum backed roses too.
Pam - sending you a very special hug today, I can't believe it's been two years. Xxx
Had Scamp to vets for a check and the vet is really pleased with her and has said she can have supervised strolls around the lounge as long as she doesn't jump anywhere. The only problem with that is when we then put her back in the cage she is horrendous. Little devil deliberately knocked her water bowl over three times when we tried this. Still it is great news that she's well and truly on the mend.
Sending love and hugs to all, Alison xxxx

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a very nice card and it is just a shame I have finished all my Easter cards :-) I love the Blushing Rose die and it looks equally as good if you use a coloured vellum with a white or toning top.

Pam - extra hugs for you today, I can't believe it is two years.
Tracy - listen to your body and enjoy your duvet days as a return to work will come all too soon.
Alison - has the vet ever tried to stop a cat from jumping? lol. So pleased that Scamp is doing well and I'm sure she will be permanently released from confinement soon.

Roses and the cathedral die are a perfect match. I love the colour and the embossing is beautiful. A lovely card Sue. My rose embossing just came in and I'm going to see how it will look on raspberry card and I'll try your tip with the clear medium. Have a wonderful day!

Sandy H said...

I hadn't noticed until seeing this card that the oval of the Cathedral Background die was a perfect Easter egg. The vellum behind the roses is lovely.
Pam, you are in my thoughts. It hardly seems possible that it's two years since you lost Tim.
Take care everyone.
