Follow Your Heart

 Good Sunday morning all!  I have an elegant wedding shadow box card for you today.  I started by cutting the Wedding shadow box out of milk card.  I added mounting foam to the back and attached it to a piece of black card backing that I embossed with the Rose Blooms folder to make the boxes pop.  In the largest square box, I cut the heart and inked it with Antique Linen before removing it from the die.  I glued it into place then added the Mr. & Mrs cut in milk with a black shadow.  I filled in the other smaller boxes with the bells, the smaller heart, the ring.  I added the Champagne bottle and glasses to the long thin box and finished the last box with the follow your heart sentiment.   I used the Exquisite Poppy die set to make a flower and added Iced Snow to it.  I seated it in the lower corner on a black satin ribbon bow and adorned it with Heart Sprays cut out of milk card.  The card was completed with milk and black mats.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x  7 1/2" in size.

The winners of this week's Comment Game are:

Sharon Casey!!!

Congratulations all!  Please email me at to confirm your address and claim your prize.  All for now, Sue x

Sunday Smiles Sue. It's been a while since you show cased these beautiful collections. For any new crafters joining Particraft if you've not invested in any of these Shadow Box collections then don't hesitate, you can do so much with them and all the cute little accessory dies are more than useful, I could go on all day about them but you should really find out for yourself lol.
Many congratulations to our 3 winners a lovely start to your day ☺
Sending my usual hugs to a lovely lady - enjoy your day xx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, what a stunning card today, I absolutely love it, and what a wonderful keepsake for a couple getting married or even celebrating an anniversary, I love using the shadow box dies and like the way you have embossed the black card (which you can just see in the close ups) but also the heart has the same embossing on it, talk about roses we love you, this is truly stunning, going to the top of my list to make.

Pam I hope you had a really lovely birthday yesterday and that you celebrated well - hurry back we miss you.

Congratulations to Sharon Casey, Owlish, and Fluffy cat on winning this week, you will so enjoy your prizes.

Elaine, hope Andrew is continuing to improve, special hugs to Helen and the family too, forever in all our thoughts.

Laine - are you starting a Cat Motel - word is getting around you know.

PP, hope you had a safe journey to I O W, it is such a beautiful place, I have been there so many times and never tire of it. If you get a chance, visit the lifeboat station at Bembridge, it is very interesting but also to the left of it (as you are looking out to see) there is a lovely cafe/restaurant which does the most amazing crab meals, caught fresh every day, would highly recommend it.

Carmen, congrats to the winners etc. of the Canadian world figure skating championships, they are so clever, I can't even stay up straight on ice.

Happy crafting everyone on this hopeful bright Sunday.

To all who are needing them I send special hugs to you all.

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

Everyone have a wonderful Sunday.


CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. Beautiful card, your shadow boxes are brilliant. Love the flower but would never have guessed that it was made using the poppy dies. It's inspired me to get your rose dies out and make some up in different colours, as I love your technique for making them.
Congratulations to all the winners. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Good morning Sue
It certainly is such an elegant wedding card that anyone would be thrilled to receive. I've said many times that the accessories to the shadow box dies are so cute and gorgeous! They are also so versatile also because you can use them on their own without the shadow box.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Fans,

It occurs to me that black works on a wedding card because the traditional groom wears a black tuxedo. And I really like how you filled the glasses with champagne.
Congratulations to the lucky winners. Sure wish somebody would tell what their prize is.
May your Sunday be sunny or at least crafty.

Pam said...

Beautiful card Sue, so elegant and pretty.
Congratulations to al, 3 comment game winners, so well deserved. Sharon a little light for you at the moment.
June, you are doing a grand job, I could be your deputy .
I went out for dinner last night, the waitress was opening champagne, misjudged the pop and the fizz shot out, gues who was in the firing line, got it all over my trousers. However the food was lovely.
Maria, glad the eyes are feeling better, you are so right about the noise from the MRI machine, very noisy.
Patricia, hope the grandchildren don't tire you out, have a great time. You will have to do a flower making tutorial, I would love to see it.
Yvonne hope hou and the boys arrived safely, have a great time.
Carmen, well done the Canadian skaters.
Elaine,my daily hugs for you and your family, especially Helen at this tense time. Hope Andrews injections have started and going well.
Daily hugs to all, especially missing friends and Carers of our poorly friends too.

Morning Sue, great card for a this sunny Sunday Morning. It is nice to see a different colour combination on a wedding card, as I don't think I would ever have thought of using black, but I have to say it really works well.

To My Wonderful Dear Friend Sue,
Well Its A Late One Today As My Laptop Was Still Playing Up, For Some Reason....
Today's card Is Yet Once Again Another Of Your Amazing "Shadow Boxes" Which We All Seem To Love.
Products Used In Today's Card:-
"Milk/Black Foundation Card"
"Mounting Foam"
"Antique Linen Distress Ink"
"Black Satin Ribbon For The Bow"
"Iced Snow"
Stars In Today's Exquisite Card:-
"Rose Blooms Embossing Folder"
"Elegant Wedding Shadow Box With Embellishments"
"Mr/Mrs, Bells, Large Heart, Smaller Heart, The Ring, Champagne Bottle, Glasses"
"Extremely Exquisite Poppies Die Set"
"Sentiment For Today's Card "Follow Your Heart"
""Heart Sprays Die Set"
Today's Fabulous Card:-
I Just Love The Colour Combination Of "The Milk/Black Card" Together So Extremely Striking Plus
So Very Different From The Normal White Wedding Cards...
Sue, You Cut Out Your "Wedding Shadow Box" From "Milk Card" Then Attached "Mounting Foam" To The
Back, You Then Attached This To A Piece Of "Black Card" That You Had Embossed Using The Stupendous
"Rose Blooms Embossing Folder" Which Makes Your Card Look Rich Also Very Opulent Just Perfect.
In The Largest Square Of Your "Shadow Box" You Cut Out "The Large Heart" Whilst Still Within
The Die You Added A Touch Of "Antique Distress Ink" You Glued This Into Place Then Sue, You Cut Out
"The Mr/Mrs" In "Milk/Black Card" So You Could Just Offset "The Black" "Mr/Mrs" To "The Milk Card" To Create
A Shadow Image, Then You PLaced This On Top Of Your "Large Heart"
Sue You Filled The Other Boxes With "The Bell/The Smaller Heart/The Ring" Adding "The Champagne Bottle
Plus Glasses" To The Long Thin Box, Sue, With The Very Last Box You Placed Your Sentiment "Follow Your Heart"
Sue, Then You Created One Of Your "Extremely Exceptional Exquisite Poppy Flowers" Which Looks Just
Outstanding You Added "Iced Snow" To Your Flower For Bling, Sue You Made A Bow Using "The Black Satin Ribbon"
This Is Where You Placed Your Stupendous Flower, Also Adding Foliage From "The Heart Sprays" Perfect
Adding All This To Your Famous Signature Piercing Plus Your Milk/Black Matting/Layering.
As Always Your Card Has Ticked Every Box Its Just Perfect In Everyway, Remarkable Scrumptious, I Love It.
Sue, Thank You For Sharing Today's Extremely Beautiful Card Plus For The Daily Inspiration I Can't Begin To Tell
You Just How Much I Appreciate It.
Sue, Take Great Care
Wonderful Warm Fond Wishes To Colin Also Heather

Late today, Sue, very early start and been 'abroad' - well, Malvern - just back and hungry little ones clamouring. Will catch up with two days' comments tomorrow.
Don't have any shadow boxes but always like to see what you do with them, and this is a perfect contemporary wedding card.
Well done to the three comment winners - Owlish, Sharon who could do with a boost
and Fluffycat who is one of my partners in feline crime! Pleased for you all.

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

I'm a big fan of the Shadow Box dies, they are just so useful and versatile. This one in particular is a real gem, everything from the subtlety embossed background to the cute little champagne glasses screams glamour and sophistication, perfect as a keepsake framed as a remembrance of a wonderful day. I have all of these dies but unfortunately havent had cause to use them yet....never mind, at least i know that they will make the most perfect and elegant card for the most important of occasions, thankyou Sue, it is wonderful as
A beautifully sunny Sunday today, didn't venture out, simply enjoyed it from the comfort of my sofa however Brodie really enjoyed frolicking in the bushes in the sunshine....rather unfortunately as it turns out because Ginger Boy made an appearance! Brodie is very territorial but hasn't had occasion to get into a fight before....until now that is! Ginger Boy sensed danger and tried to roll on his back in submission but Brodie was having none of it and proceeded to rip lumps out of our visitor:-( Mum managed to separate them and Brodie retreated under a car doing as he was told for a change and staying put. There was cat fur everywhere as Ginger Boy sloped off, in the meantime, Darcey, who had been sleeping in my Mums bedroom, managed to open the window and run around the back of the house to save Brodie. Everyone was upset by the altercation, Darcey followed Brodie like a shadow until he came home and went to bed.....i don't think we will see Ginger Boy again:-(
Carmen, inspired by your win in the Ice Skating Ice Dance at the Worlds i decided to watch the highlights. It was very enjoyable, i really like ice skating having spent many an hour in my misspent youth at our local rink.....didn't have the talent of these beautiful skaters though:-( Canada fully deserved their success and you are right to feel proud of their achievements, well done! Feeling a little disoriented, you're being nice to me....almost, call me suspicious but i do wonder what your alterior motive could possibly be......:-)
Deputy June, what a wonderful job you are doing filling in the massive void left by Pam, you are a star!
Pam, what a dreadful waste of good alcohol, i do hope that they gave you a free drink as compensation! Glad you enjoyed your birthday though, have fun the rest of your holiday.
Frances, I was so happy to see your name chosen as this weeks winner, i can't think of a more deserving home, enjoy your prize when it arrivesxxx
Congrats to the rest of this weekends lucky winners too.
Saba, you're so funny, only you would start off with the intention of doing a card only to do everything but.....i wont ask where you were shaving, too much information, however, I'm sure that your husband was very appreciative of your efforts:-)
Maria, good to hear that your eyes are improving, thinking of youxxx
Wheely, great to see you back! Good luck to Mr W with his interview result and hugs to Billy, glad he's doing well:-)
Lynda, good to see you back too, hope that you have been keeping wellxxx
Hugs to all my blog besties including P,Pat, Tracy, Theresa, Donita, Maureen, Myra and the rest of the Naughty Nine, both Tina's and with a special mention to Elaine, Andrew and Helen who are facing many challenges with courage and dignityxxx

Fabulous elegant understated card. I love it, but then again I'm a big fan of the shadow box collections.
Congratulations to the three winners.
Crafty hugs to all. Thoughts and prayers to all especially Helen.

Gorgeous card Sue. Very unusual milk and black for a wedding but very modern I guess.
The beautiful poppy, bow and heart sprays finish the card perfectly.
Congratulations to your three winners xx

Hi Sue,

What a lovely card for a wedding or anniversary. I don’t have the shadow box collections but I could see from your demos these sets are useful for so many things, showing the versatility of your dies. And those little beautiful details are a lovely touch. Thank you again for the inspiration.

Congratulations to Sharon Casey, Owlish, and FluffyCat on winning this week. Enjoy your prizes.

Pam – Hope you had a great mini vacation.
Elaine – My special daily hugs for the three of you.
Liitlelamb – Happy belated b-day for your eldest son. Congratulations for your granddaughters. Maybe your eldest granddaughter will be a skating champion and the youngest one a famous ballerina. You never know what the future can bring. Good luck!
Lynne L. – Have a great time with your family.
Laine – What kind of person do you think I am? I cannot pour more salt on your wound ... I do have a heart, believe it or not.

Thanks everyone for all your congratulations and kind comments. It is 100% Canadian win since the songwriter, the coaches and choreographers are all Canadians! Great team work!

Have a great Monday everyone,
Still a newbie to Craft / Not longer the newest and the only Canadian Wilsonette

Beautiful, I must admit I haven't bought any of the shadowboxes but I'm sorely tempted this morning. Xx
