Creating With Corners



Hi crafters!  If you need a quick card, pick up your corner dies and you can create a stunning project in no time!  You can build backgrounds, frames or just add a lovely accent to a die with your corners.  They are great for more than just corners!  Don't forget.








The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card, Love Teal and White, and such a great effect with the corner dies. Will catch up with the video later. Have a lovely day. Bx

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. What a great idea. I would have never thought of using corners as the main die and design for a card, what a lovely idea. The pop of real is really fresh looking.
I think I need to make a note of these clean looking and easier cards as they get lost behind the 'bigger style' cards, so as ideas and designs don't come easy to me, the notes I make will make it so much easier when I'm standing in front of my craft table with a blank 8x8 card thinking where the heck do I go now ! So thank you for these lovely quick designs and inspiration.
Hope you have a lovely day Sue xx

CraftySuetoo said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, I live the look of todays video, I will watch it in a little while whilst I have my breakfast, looking forward to seeing it.

I thoroughly enjoyed going back to craft club yesterday, and they kept making me laugh, so it was oh giggle, oh giggle, oh giggle, but it was worth it. I was so tired when I got ho9me but a great step in the right direction as you say Pam, off to wound clinic today, not sure if I am going to have to have yet another course of antibiotics, had 3 already.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Such a lovely card with so few ingredients - I shall use my corners that way, too - there's just not enough hours in the day to play all I want to play with those dies of yours....... I suppose I shouldn't buy as many but hey, where would be the fun in that??
Teal and white is always a winner for me, colour-wise. (I think I'll try red and ??)
Hugs, Rose
