Gorgeous card, Sue, thank you so much for the video as think there would be a lot of head-scratching here without it! An unusual design, don't have any of these elements but think a lot of your sets could be used similarly. Looks quite difficult yet surprisingly easy to achieve. Love it.
Pam, got quite a fright when you didn't appear for a while!!
Carmen - good to read about you in Toronto - your English is just fine, no worries there.
Well done to Pat PATRICIAH on the card win.
Hugs all round.

Jayem said...

Hello Sue

This is quite lovely. I don't have those dies but I am sure I have something I can use. I am keen to try it in ever so pale lilac, mauve and white. As you say, perfect for posting and a good size so postage is not exorbitant.

Jan from NSW (Australia)

Patricia said...

Good morning Sue,,
I am loving today's card, colours and design are wonderful.
I have the card, not all he Dies although I can mix and match with some of your other wonderful Dies.

Pam, your daily summery was short today ... hope you are OK and looking forward to the weekend.
Safe flight to the UK Saba have a great time with the Grandchildren, wish you were here for our "meet up"

Magic Maggie said...

Sue you are great - this card has given me some focus on the heart corners and burgundy dies (which can all be adapted for this style!) thank you so much
Maggie (Yorkite)
PS I'm still trying to work out how to stamp sentiments onto a dry embossed base - tell John to demo it please

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

What? an actual card!

Love this, just watched the video and will be having a go...thank you for bearing in mind the postage costs and making a really flat card and also for all your tips on cutting the front apertures and at the same time registering the position of the die onto the back panel - wouldn't have thought of doing it that way...

Congratulations to Pat on winning that lovely leaves card...

Carmen - you're very welcome - and your English is excellent!

Izzy said...

Magic Maggie - you need to do your stamping first whilst the card is still flat and only then run it through your embossing folder...hth


Diane King said...

Awww Sue this is gorgeous, I love the colour, dies used and the shape. Stunning.

Congratulations Pat. enjoy your wonderful card.

Saba said...

Good morning Sue
Fantastic video, you had me worried for a moment when you mentioned the die had marked the card until I realised it was a good mark! I love love love this card, I even have some of the dies to enable me to have a go and I'm itching to do so but today it's an itch I can't scratch.
I'm flying back to the UK for a visit and a whole week of cuddles from my grandson and the I don't think the hour or so I have before I must leave will give me enough time, so for now I'll just have to itch! Thank you Sue.
Pat Patriciah congratulations on your win, enjoy.
Carmen your English is spot on. There is another problem with this crafting bug which you will no doubt experience when you fly home for a visit, you have to decide just how few clothes you can get away with so that you have loads of room in your suitcase to bring back as many of Sue's dies as possible without going over the weight limit. Me, I'm just taking a t shirt!!!
Love and hugs for all

Good morning Sue. Gate fold cards are lovely. Daughter had me making them for their wedding invitations so got a bit sick of doing them for a while. I have a wedding card to make so you have given me the inspiration to make a gate fold one, so thank you.
Pat Patricia. Congratualions on you win.
Saba, safe flight just think no high speed run across that airport this time. Enjoy those cuddles.
Hoping everyone has a good day what ever you are doing.

Jess Watson said...

Morning Sue, brilliant card, love the idea of the band for closing.
I like Margaret Corgi owners idea of using the band as a garter for wedding cards.
Magic Maggie as Izzy said stamp before you emboss, it,took me a while to work that out.
Welcome Carmen, this is the best blog ever, I have met some lovely people here.
Congratulations Pat on winning the Wednesday card, enjoy your gift.
Take care everyone, Jess xxx

P Austen said...

Hi Sue, having seen you do a banded card a couple of years ago, my neighbour asked me to do her wedding invitations which were in cream and gold. Then I followed up with a banded card for my Christmas cards and consequently haven't made any since, so thank you for reminding me to try making them once again. As you say, they are easy to post.
Love the colours. Congrats to Pat for winning your give away card. Enjoy your weekend everyone. Hugs xx P Austen

ursula said...

An absolute stunning card Sue, quite different today, one of those I must try....many thanks....congrats to
Pat.....luv Ursula xx

Tressa said...

I like the idea of a banded card which also lies fairly flat to reduce postal charges. Like one or two others, i don't have any of these dies but, I am sure I can find something in my stash that will allow me to learn from your interesting techniques. Just have to tidy up my 'craft' room to locate the stash!!

Thank you. Now to catch up on the rest of the week's samples that I missed during my brief sojourn in Wales.


Marianna Hammer said...

Sam Smithard said...

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
"Thank You" For Sharing Such A "Tremendous Video Tutorial And Card" With Us,
I've Watched This Particular Video Numerous Times But It's Always Great To Watch Once Again
(That's The Wonderful Thing About Signing Up For Your Video Tutorial's Through "You Tube" They
Contact You As Soon As New Videos Become Available, And I Never Tire Of Them)
Tremendous Products Used As Always
"The Bora Bora Die Set"
"The Fiji Die Set"
"The Pacific Ocean Border And Corners"
"The Striped Nasturtium"
"The Foliage From The Family Tree"
"The Trellis Edger" (I Don't Know Whether You Would Be Able To Use The Beautiful Delicate Filigree
Buckle Bar Die)
"Coconut White/Black/Blue Dusk Foundation Card"
It's Wonderful To See How You Breakdown Each Element Of Your Card To Help Us Understand How You Have
Achieved Today's "Masterpiece" I Love How You Took Your Blue Dusk Card Measured Two And Half Inches
From Either Side To Create Your "Tri Fold Card" Then Opening Up The Card You Placed A Piece Of Black Card
In The Centre, Then You've Cut Out An Aperture With Your "Fiji Die" By Sticking Into centre Of The Black Card
With Cutting Edge Upwards, Which Cuts Out A Perfect Aperture Out Of Your Blue Dusk Card, Also Leaving An
Embossed Image On The Black Card, Then You Placed A Piece Of The Coconut White Card On Top Of
The Black Within The Centre (I Was Confused Here Lol!) But Then You Made Sure Your White Card Was Secure
And Took The Decorative Die From "The Fiji" Once In Position You Removed The White Card With The Die
And Cut Then Once You Removed All Small Items From The Die You Cut Your White Card Down The Centre
And Placed Inside Centre Glueing On Either Side, Then You've Taken "The Stupendous" Decorative Cutting
Centre From "The Bora Bora" In Blue DuskWhite It Looks Outstanding.
You've Then Attached To One Side Only Of Your Card, You've Added Two Corners From "The Pacific Ocean"
To TheFront Of Your Card.
Inside Your Card You've Placed A Border At The Bottom, Once Again You've Added "The Fiji" With Your Sentiment
And Placed It Where You Can See The Embossing, "Just Stunning" For Your Belly Band You Have Used
"The Trellis" Placed On White Card Added A "Striped Nasturtium" And The Foliage From "The Family Tree"
Sue I Can't Thank You Enough For Your Tremendous Video Tutorials I've Gained So Much Knowledge From
Them, I've Said This Many Times But You Really Do Inspire Me Each And Everyday I Truly Appreciate Everything
You Do, Thank You So Very Very Much.
Sue Take Great Care
Wonderful Warm Fond Wishes To Colin And Heather
Sue Lots Of Love And Huge Hugs 🤗 For Yourself
Love From Sam xxx

Oh my word, Sue, this gorgeous card is just a WOW! Such a lovely unusual design and I have all the necessary bits and pieces to try it! But I think a lot of your fabulous dies could be used in this way. Lovely colour too. Can't wait to try this one out. Sue, thank you so much for making the video: there would be a lot of puzzlement from me without it; the card looks so intricate but as ever, you explain so well and make it look easy.

Maria Alder said...

Hi Sue and everyone.
Fabulous card, have not made many gate fold ones but this give me
an idea for one so fingers crossed. Hope you have a nice weekend.

Congrats to Pat on winning the gorgeous card on Wednesday !

Pam- hope your chest is getting better ? You did worry us this morning
not being first or not even second you know. hugs
Carmen- thank you for telling us little about yourself. Sue on Tv was the
first time I saw her too and everything else after that is a blur :) with
cards, glitters, stamps and dies and it changed my life too after finding
her lovely blog and I have got many fantastic real friends by joining.
It must be lovely to live in Toronto. Your English is very good, if I didn't
have the spellchecker on my comments would be much worse than they are, Lol x
Saba- have a great time in the UK visiting the family, take care x
Tracy- are you still under that duvet ? :-) Have a restful day x
Pp Pa- have a good weekend and don't do anything I would, too late :) x
Laine- hope you alright and you can have a calm and restful weekend x

Sending love and hugs to all Wilsonette's, thinking of all who struggling so
sending you some extra and also to my good friends and to you Sue because
you are a very special person

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, what a beautiful card for us today, I love it. At first I could not think how you had achieved it but your video explained it so clearly and is one that I will be bookmarking for future reference. I don't have these particular dies but am sure it could be re-created with something similar from any of your previous collections.

Pat PATRICIAH - Congratulations on being this week's Wednesday Winner, enjoy your beautiful card.
Carmen - thank you for the introduction into your life. Sue has many followers who are not based in the UK and I may be wrong but I think you are our first Canadian. Your command of the English language is excellent so you have no worries there. We wouldn't dare laugh or giggle at your lack of knowledge of certain techniques after all we had to learn once! I hope you continue to learn and enjoy creating your own masterpieces.
P Pixie - I hope you are enjoying your time away and have fun browsing around Phill's shop.
Laine - sorry, forgot to say the other day that hubby & I are doing ok thank you but there is still some friction between Pippin and the Princesses. Just as I think they are getting along ok a minor skirmish breaks out and we are back to square one. I shall just have to be very patient.
Myra - did a lie down help?

I will watch it again tomorrow when I'm less tired, been out to a charity crafting day today raising money for research into juvenile type 1 diabetes. Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx

Hi Sue. Beautiful card for so many special occasions. Do love this shade of blue too. Your tutorial was very easy to follow so I think
I can make a card very similar though I don't have the lattice die for the band. Will have to improvise.
Congratulations to Pat Patriacah on winning the gorgeous Wednesday card, lucky you.

Hello Sue and all
gatefold cards have always been a favorite and the band to hold it closed is just gorgeous. As usual your video makes such a complex looking card so easy step by step. Love it.
Congratulations Pat, enjoy your beautiful Sue original

Hi Sue

“So glad you are my friend” card is a special one. Maybe Sue, in an subtle and elegant way sent a message to all her followers ... to be friendly with each other. Or maybe I am wrong. Anyway, all I can say is that I am so glad to find so many friends here on this blog, thanks to you Sue!
Great video! Beautiful card! You showed us a new way to fold a card, a new way to hold the card closed ... the band is beautiful with the flower embellishment. So many nice details! Looks difficult to make it but you said that it is easy to do it – will see!
Thank you all (Pam, 'P' in Wales, June Smith, Izzy, Marg, Jess, Pat, Elaine H, Donita, Frances,Littlelamb, Trish, Sandy) for your warm welcome! I apologize if I didn’t mention all names.
Diane G – I hope to meet Sue one day.
Maria – Yes, it is lovely to live in Toronto if you like to live in a big, busy city.
Myra – nobody’s perfect ... I enjoy reading your comments wherever I find them.(I couldn’t find a better answer than this. Did I pass the test?)
Saba - I love your humor! For sure I will need more than a t-shirt; I am always cold.
Congratulations to Pat on winning Wednesday’s beautiful card.

Have a great Sunday, ladies!
