Interlaced Frame Background




Hello there my crafty friends!  Don't you just love it when you can create a beautiful background with just a single die!  I know I do!  The Gemma die set allows you to tuck the edges under each other to create a lovely background.








The finished dimensions are 8" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card Sue, just gorgeous.
Elaine, hope Andrew gets some good news from his scan, good that Helens back is improving.. You sound in much better spirits, all of this talk about scooters, wheelies and speed is doing you good.
Maureen, good news I think, you have made so much progress. 2 months will mean you are better for the next 9 meet up, what tales you will have to tell. Have to say your mischievous sense of humour stayed intact even though the hip didn't.
Donita, hope your return to work went well, vacations pass so quickly. Glad you have found somewhere local to buy your dies.
Glad to hear Yvonne is okay, how is Laine, she has been missing a while now, hope all is okay.
Patricia, my friend had a CV2 in the sixties, I didn't drive then and I thought she was so cool and trendy, I loved her little car, it too was yellow, think that was the most popular colour at the time.
Hugs to all, especially our missing and poorly friends, and their carers too.

Haven't watched the video yet but the card is gorgeous and looks so intricate. It always amazes me that such great backgrounds can be made with just one die.
Thoughts and prayers to all.
Happy crafting,

Beautiful card.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Morning Sue. I'm so intrigued as to how you put this together so will watch your tutorial as soon as I'm on my own in about 15 mins. It's a very detailed sample and probably a lot busier than most of your samples, but if we all liked and made the same kind of cards then how boring would the craft world be ?
Sending love n hugs your way xx

Lovely colour combination but a bit too much going on for me with this card today. Debra x

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue and Her Fabulous Band of Crafters,

What a pretty card! And so clever that the Gemmas interlock.

My future mother-in-law liked her Mother's Day card. I'll call it a flower sampler with the Shadow Box lattice trellis for a background.

Dozing off so I'll quit there.

Love,
Donita

Catherine Lyons said...

Hi Sue i love this card very detailed and intricate lovely colour .

Janice K said...

Good morning Sue,
Thank you for the tutorial, I would never have thought to interlock the Gemma die together-it certainly creates a beautiful background! I will have to remember this design for the next time I have a large card to make for work. Many thanks for the great inspiration.x

Good morning Sue
If there's one thing your dies are not they are never boring! They are not only beautiful but very versatile as well. I love the way you've made the background out of one die, the chrysanthemum has fast become my current favourite. I must get that colour mouse it's stunning! I enjoyed the video thanks for sharing.

Lovely card, Sue, such a pretty blue and lots of interest. My late Mum was a 'blue' lady and would have loved this. Thanks as ever for the video.
Izzy and Rosemary P - cheesecloth bought on eBay (search cheesecloth fabric) you need the loose open one. Sue suggested hardware/DIY stores poreviously but was unlucky in our sleepy area - you may well have more access.
Echoing Pam as usual.
Hugs to all.

Tressa said...

My immediate thought was this seemed a rather busy card, but a closer look said otherwise. I like the way that you interlocked the die to make the background then matched the centre one to give a cross effect. The ronly silt is a lovely card.

I love this card it's stunning also the colour you have chosen wow !!!!

Hi Sue
A very busy card today , lovely colours and flowers , will watch the video later.

P in wales ,thanks for the tip i was wondering where to get the cheesecloth from , i will be looking today xxx

Maureen so pleased Yvonne is ok ,i can just imagine you being a very naughty little leprechaun getting up to all sorts of tricks ,i love a bit of grunge so please send me a photo of yourself xxxx

Norah,you have me thinking now , i think i would look better seated on a buggy much more sophisticated and regal much more my style than a wheeled walker , oh yes i am warming to a buggy idea .

Andrew had his scan { we were crossing everything because of the cyber thing going on } he has to wait now up to 6 weeks for the results. thank you all for his good wishes , they mean so much.

Pam hope all is well at work for you ? echoing all your comments again.
Laine hope you are well chuck., missing you .

Hugs to all

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card in beautiful blue but it is a little busy for me. I much prefer the simplicity of a similar one you made a couple of weeks ago using Gemma and wisteria card. Just as well we don't always like the same thing, it would be terribly boring if we did. Great video as always thank you.

snowy said...

Lovely card. I'm not a huge fan of using the same colour blue throughout a card. I like to add different tones of the same colour shade, but that's just me. I love the way you interlocked them to make the background. I learn something new every day from this blog. Thank you. Hugs xxx Snowy Owl 36

How fabulous this card is especially in blue and white.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Awesome card design today. Lots going on. Your Gemma die interlaced certainly gives one lots of lovely coverage especially with backing it with a coorindating color. Great video. Thanks for the visual help as well as your clear instructions. You're the BEST!

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

What a pretty card in blue and white. I like the clever way that you have intertwined the striplets, I would not have thought to do that but again I don't have a Sue Wilson mind. Thank you for all the little hints and tips in the video, I always find them to be such an inspiration.

Hoping that everyone has a wonderful day.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Love the colour scheme and bits of the card, however, overall it is a bit to busy for my taste - sorry.

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Sue,
Great video showing exactly how to make this card.
Pam, hope you are o.k. and work is not too much of a drag. Can I say that there is no way I'd miss another get together, I'd have to be in a coma - some might say "not much change there then!!"
Alimecca, oh good gracious I had no idea. What have you done?
Elaine, I'll keep everything crossed for the next 6 weeks. Listen, we'll be going so fast it won't matter if you are standing, sitting or lying down - we'll all end up in a heap anyway ha ha.
Diane, Happy Anniversary - I hope you've had a lovely day.
Maria, I hope you are well, you didn't say if the needles worked.
PP phoned me this afternoon. Oh what a bore but I answered the phone before I realised it was her lol. She's absolutely fine and missing the blog like crazy. She still hasn't received her tablet and is going to chase it up. Her mam fell in Newcastle last week (some people just have to copy me!) but she fell in the Grainger Market (for anyone who knows Ncle) and was looked after royally before going to A & E. She's fractured her arm and has a plaster fitted. I'm not sure if it's this weekend that her parents are visiting her. She's going to be speaking the Laine in the next few days and will tell her that she's missed as people are asking after her.
I've been to the supermarket this morning with my new set of wheels. I tried to obstruct as many people as I could but because I'm quite slow, they dodged me easily ha ha.
Love to all who are poorly or lonely and their carers.
Maureen xx

This is a FABULOUS card, and an excellent video, too. Loving the way you've used the dies, you always come up with new ideas producing fresh, new images all the time. Fantastic. I'd love to have half your imagination............
Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue and everyone. I love this card and colour combo, must get the gilding polish. Love and hugs to Elaine and family and also Crewetrish and family. Thinking of you all and all those in need of a hug. Short one today, getting my dogs results of his 3 lump removals, fingers crossed

Good evening Sue,
Beautiful card, love the crisp, clean effect of the Blue & White and the fantastic design.
Pam, I hope today was a good day for you, as always I echo your brilliant summary.

She is even more lethal than ever she has a "4 wheel drive" Zimmer!!!

A lovely colour Sue but the card itself is just a bit too fussy for my taste. Still going to watch the video though cos I always learn something new from you

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
I shall try again! We have been having Internet trouble and I commented yesterday and didn't realise immediately it had gone into the wide blue yonder! Same this morning!
Yesterday's card wasn't for me really although I admired the techniques used and the work which went into it! I don't often say that but I like to be honest.
Today's I like and was amazed what can be done with one Die! Love the colours and as usual the flowers.
Im sending up a parcel of Washi tapes to Maureen so that she can adorn the scooter/vehicle! She passed her test today and is now roadworthy!
I'm sure PP feels a lot better after you told her we weren't missing her Maureen!
Elaine and Norah! I'm trying to come up with something for your wheels as well! You are all mad! You do know that! Lol!!
Elaine - watch out for Norah on her scooter - she will be a bad influence!!
Love to all. Oh nearly forgot - love the wheels Pam!! I haven't had a sports car for years!
Love Myra xx

CCM said...

Hi Sue,

Lovely card today. Love the Jacobean Floral embossing folder and Gemma die set that you have used. The combination blue and white is a winner for me. Only you could use a single die set and create a beauty like this one. Thank you again for your daily inspiration and great video.

Elaine – Hugs for you all.
Donita – Lucky you! Two times lucky: you found a local store that carries SW’s dies and your future mother-in-law liked your card.
Rosemary, Izzy – For cheesecloth try your local grocery store or fabric stores.
Laine – Hope you are well.

Hugs,
Still a newbie to Craft / Not longer the newest, or the only Canadian Wilsonette

Marie said...

Good morning Sue A lovely card which looks too advanced for me but something to aspire to in the future Are there envelopes out there for the larger cards? If a card measures 8" x 8" what size envelope is required? I do all my shopping on line and don't want to make a mistake (again).
