Recessed Aperture Background Card

Hi crafters!  Cutting an aperture into a background makes for a very interesting card design.  It is so easy to do and you can watch the video and follow along if you like!

The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card Sue, beautiful. Love the sentiment too.
Rosemary, wonderful news, the best you could have hoped for, I'm so happy for you.
Yvonne, hapoy belated birthday greetings, you sound as if you have had a wonderful time, now rest up. Are your eyes healed now .
Barbara, I am sorry to hear you gave been so poorly but good news that you are home and resting. I too had pneumonia and heart problems, please take care of yourself, get well soon.
Elaine, my dear friend, you have had so much to deal with this past year, you don't have much time to yourself. I too think that you should take time out, you may wish to go back to it some day. An electronic machine would be perfect for you. We don't want to lose you off the blog. Poor Andrew what a disastrous trip he had, and his team losing would be the last straw.
Myra, so glad your migraine has eased, nasty things.
Daily hugs to all, our poorly and missing friends especially., wondering how Laine is.

Morning Sue.
Thank you a beautiful card.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. What a beautiful sample this morning very classic very Sue. We always hope friends can do this but sometimes we learn that only a true genuine trustworthy friend is worth such a lovely statement like this and I've been tripped up by being too trustworthy but we learn by the life lessons thrown at US right ?
I'm really looking forward to watching your tutorial when my two go for walkies in the next few minutes ☺ the colour match is gorgeous and I just know I will see some replicas of this in different colour schemes on a couple of fb groups and it always amazes me how a change of colour can change the whole look.
Wishing you a day of love fun sunshine and happiness xxx

Patricia said...

Good morning Sue,
Great card, super use of dies, all very elegant.
Pam as aways your Summary covers everything.

Good morning Sue. Fabulous card and video, everything makes more sense when I can watch you.
Rosemary, the best news ever, so pleased for you. Barbara, very happy that you're home, look after yourself and make sure the only thing on your toes is nail varnish!
Elaine, I was sorry to read your post about giving up crafting and I think Carmen summed up everything perfectly.
What happened to summer? Had to have a hot water bottle last night! Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Hello Sue and all

The black white and gold mirror card look beautiful, love the way your dies mix and match- the borders are fabulous.

Thanks again Pam for your summing up, so sorry to hear that you are thinking of giving up crafting Elaine, I hope things change for you and you have some time even if it is only short spurts. Welcome back Barbara too.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh I like this one, will watch the video later as I have got to go out early for a routine blood test this morning, can't wait to have my cup of tea afterwards.

Pam I reiterate all you have said. Elaine special hugs - so sorry that you are feeling that you have to give up crafting, but we all need to take some time out sometimes, I do hope that you will be able to come back to it once you feel up to it, you will be sadly missed so hope you are still able to pop onto the blog from time to time to tell us how you, Andrew and Helen are doing.

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

nattyboots said...

Hi Sue
Such a lovely card great use of the dies i love it .

Barbara , so sorry to read you have been so poorly, welcome home, just get plenty of rest and you will soon be your self again soon i am sure .

Well my friends how can i give up crafting after reading Carmen's message ,i will hang fire for a while and see if things get any easier .
I think everything is getting on top of me at the moment perhaps ? Andrew told me his uncle { my Lovely brother } was having a problem with his chest on Sunday when they were walking ,i saw him yesterday and he assured me it was wind ,with having nothing to eat, i just wish he would get it checked out .
We are going to see him later along with a visit to Mary who is doing very well.
Andrew was out of sorts yesterday but this is usual days 4-5 are always rough for him after treatment .
I have waffled long enough with my problems so will echo all of Pam's lovely comments again today and wish you all well.
Big hugs
Elaine H X

Oh Elaine, so glad to read you are going
to 'hang fire' for now with your crafting,
sometimes taking away the feeling of having
to do it, makes it seem easier. Hugs to you

Love this card, will catch the video later.

Donita Naylor said...

Dear Sue,

Love, love, love this! Makes me wish I had the Indonesian background. My Java just came, and I've had Sumatra since its release. Perhaps something else can be subbed in for the background. Anyway, I enjoyed the video's many surprises.

Rosemary, I'm overjoyed at your good news from the doctor. Way to go, you! And Crewe Trish, lovely of you to mention me with Carmen. And Carmen, so gracious of you.

Barbara, glad you're back among us. And Myra, thanks for the tip on how to see the craft blog rankings. Sue deserves her high standing in every way. While you're catching up on the blog, Myra, and you happen to run across how Sharon or her husband got hurt, will you fill me in? Somehow I missed that story.

Elaine, perhaps you could let it be known that you are wishing everyone who loves you will join forces for the next several occasions to give you a Gemini. Meanwhile, maybe you could find a young crafter who would be willing to turn the crank for you in exchange for payments In stash, or you could teach her how to make cards and let her use some of your SW dies. You might enjoy devoting a day to your favorite pursuits occasionally as an exercise in remembering who you are outside of looking after everyone.

Alternatively, sometimes doing nothing can be the best use of your time! Everyone wants to see you taking good care of yourself.

Thank you Pam and Carmen for summing up, and Stephanie Cotterill, you have the best sign-off line!

margaret driscoll said...

Good Morning Sue
Love this card, so I must watch the Video carefully and take notes!
So nice to see you back Barbara. good you're feeling better, hope the summer will lift the last of the chest infection for you before the winter starts!
Elaine so glad you have decided to 'hang in there',crafting will be your salvation when times are hard I'm sure!
Love Marg

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
What a great card and video today, I've always admired your apature backgrounds and how effective they are so this has given me the push I need to try them. Thank you for sharing. My stamp set arrived yesterday, what a lovely collection, thank you, it's very much appreciated.
Love Diane G xxx
Pam echoing your comments today, you say it all so well, our number 1 star xxx
Rosemary such good news, sending you a big hug xxx
Barbara I hope you are on the road to recovery and Karen my fingers are crossed for hubby xxx
Elaine I'm so glad you've had a change of heart. If you've got time to go through your stash to get rid of things you don't use and bits of card we all keep but never use then pack things away so you can leave them for a time until you are all in a better place. I think as a crafter you will regret giving everything away on a rash decision. Definately save up for a Gemini though as I think this will make you excited to craft again. I hope you still decide to comment from time to time, we will miss you but all understand. Sending love and hugs xxx

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

What a classy card!...love the colour scheme and the dies you've used and that sentiment is so true...will have to watch the video later as have a busy morning ahead of me.

Elaine - just take some time out for yourself, you've really been through the mill lately...and maybe take a look at one of the electric mangles that are on the market now rather than struggling with the Calibur but whatever you do, don't sell off your crafty tools, (the cost of the dies alone would be terrifying wouldn't it) just sort out some of the accumulated stash of cardstock, etc. things you can live without that just clutter up the craft room and take a mini break from crafting...

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
Another very elegant card, reminding me of what I always overlook/forget: that aperture cards make for an interesting, a "bit different" design.
And thank you for the video - I love them all and quite often go back to them when I think "how DID she do this?".
Colours, needless to say - right up my street.
Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue, a beautiful aperture card and I can cope with that much black :-) All the Indonesian dies are gorgeous and I am ashamed to say that none of them have yet found their way into my collection. Thank you for the video and it is always good to see how others disguise problem areas.

Barbara - happy that you are home from hospital, please just take it easy for a while.
Elaine - so pleased that you have reconsidered and I hope that my words amongst others have helped to change your mind.

Thinking of all our poorly and missing friends, please get well and come back soon.

Hello Sue
Another elegant creation it's lovely I will watch the video later after my granddaughters go home.
Elaine you are feeling overwhelmed with everything that's going on, everyone is right just step back for a time I know I am finding it difficult to get back to crafting,but all you lovely people brighten up my day so thank you for just being here.Barbara what a frightening experience I am so glad you are home.
Pam Elaine Rosemary Carmen and Donita a special thank you

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
What a beautiful card! I think I like it better than yesterday's although both are gorgeous! I do like the sentiment on this one! It's so very true!
I haven't see the video yet but I'll do that later. I always learn something!!
Barbara Macaskill - you have had a very difficult time !! So lovely to have you back and I hope you soon feel very much better.
Elaine - I'm glad you've had a rethink! You may have regretted getting rid of everything! Izzy's advice sounded good to me! I know you said you'd still look in here anyway but one of these days Sue may just show something that makes you want to craft again! I hope so.
Rosemary - great news! I think you made everyone's day as well as your own! Lovely to have good news!
Donita - I'm still catching up! Glad it helped.
Karen M - hope the news is good today for your husband too.
PP - had to back to bed yesterday when I saw your early post!!! Crikey!! Hope you are ok! Laine too!
Love to all, Myra, ( Friend of Maureen!!) xx

Suzzette Yandle said...

Thank you for the wonderful and helpful video. I always like to following along. You, Sue, are the queen of recessed aperture cards. Your card today is lovely. I really like that gold card, too.

Princess Pixie! said...

Hi Sue
I so love the 'recessed aperture'. Going to take special care and attention whilst watching the video so I can remember to use this technique when next I make it into my crafty space x
I would like to question the sentiment - there are certain friends who certainly do not bring out the best in me. They manage to bring out all my wicked traits - eh Laine x
Hope this comment is not such a shock to everyone as yesterdays - Myra x
Barbara - oh my - you poor thing - big hugs. Nothing nicer than getting back to your own bed x
Carmen - don't know any other Princesses - but I spoke to my common friend Laine last week. Her eyes are still incredibly sensitive but she promises to be back as soon as she is able x
Elaine - I think the others may have managed to change your mind but I can't help sticking my nose in!! Have a break from crafting then 'dabble' when you can. I think if you get rid of everything you might feel relieved in the short term then somewhere down the line you may start to regret it. I had a big clear out and got rid of absolutely loads of 'stuff' which had been taking up space. I gave it to a neighbour who volunteers with cancer patients and they have crafting sessions. She was over the moon and I felt quite liberated! Not only had I managed to make space but was so delighted that my 'rubbish' was going to be put to good use. I would highly recommended treating yourself to an electric die cutting machine - I could not be without mine. Okay - lecture over with. Hugs to you and yours x
Rosemary - such fabulous news - HOORAY. Delighted for you - lots of love x
Got a few bits and pieces to sort then watching a film with the boys this evening. It is rare that we all watch something together. I feel a popcorn fest coming on x
Thank you all for your birthday wishes x
Happy thoughts and lots of love to everyone especially my blog besties x
Take care
Crafty hugs
Yvonne x

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I watched the video this morning and then forgot to comment on the post (I must be getting old). Love the clean lines on this one and like you, I struggled to use mirri card on a project as sometimes it can make the finished effect look a bit brash. With the slim lines of it on this card it looks perfect.


Sandie Braithwaite said...

Love the card and the sentiment

BridgetCG said...

Sue, this card is gorgeous, your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Will catch up with the video tomorrow. Take care all. Bx

Dragonsnap2 said...

Firstly apologies Sue for not leaving a comment on yesterday's post. I certainly intended to. I must have been dazzled by the fire and ice technique or maybe the memory is going with age. It is a gorgeous card as is today's card. Haven't managed to watch the video yet - it's been one of those weeks but I love the card.
Thoughts and prayers to all who need them.
Crafty hugs,

Hi Sue. WOW !!! What a gorgeous card !!! Really beautiful !!! I have not seen your video yet but I will watch it tomorrow when I can concentrate a bit better as I am very fatigued right now. Sorry I have not commented for a bit but I have been unwell again. I do love the colours you have used on your card and I can't wait to see how you have made it. I love all the dies in your Indonesian Collection. I don't have any of them at the moment but I hope to start collecting them next pay day. Dies from your latest Festive Collection kind of took over at the moment !!! Thank you for sharing all your gorgeous cards. Sending you lots of love Sue from Tres x x x

Hi Sue,
Stunning card today. Thank you for the great video and tips. I learn something new from you every day.

PP – Questioning the sentiment proves that the old you, is back! Thanks for the update on Laine. Believe it or not, she is really missed here, right ladies?
Barbara M. – Yes, you are a Women, you are Strong, you are a Survivor and you are a WILSONETTE!
Elaine – You made my day! What a joy to see your comment! I'm so happy you've had a change of heart and I really hope you won’t regret it. Send my hugs for you and your family.

Hugs to all.
Still a newbie to Craft / not longer the newest, or the only Canadian Wilsonette

Latenight SandyH said...

Another lovely design. I'll save the video for tomorrow as it's rather late.
Elaine, really pleased that Carmen's words worked their magic.
Take care everyone.

Viki Banaszak said...

This is really lovely! I like the look of the central medallion.

Marie said...

Good morning Sue and all wilsonettes.
A lovely card indeed and makes me sorry that I don't have those particular dies at the moment. I was in the process of becoming addicted to purchasing dies but have had to stop for a while as my house is on the market and I need to be careful with my finances right now. As I commented previously 86 is to old for the hassle of moving!
I watched the video which is very instructive. Thank you so much.

Tressa said...

Lovely card. Like the colour combination. The lack of embellishments makes the Indonesian dies really stand out.
