Monday, 22 January 2018


Hello there my crafty friends!  I started by embossing a piece of silver pearl card with the Jacobean Floral embossing folder.  I added that to a larger piece of of coconut white card and ran a strip of white pearls along the edges of the embossed card top and bottom.  Next I cut two of the Julia die in white and scored them from the centre across to the tips.  I cut into the centre of each of them along one of the score lines, then accordion folded them.  I glued the two pieces together them attached them with foam to the left side of the card.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the circle dies in the centre of the Julia die set, adding a silver mat to it.  I attached the sentiment to the centre of the folded die with foam and cut a single small whit flower as an accent.  I added three small white  pearls below the sentiment and to the upper corner of the card.  Next I cut two of the Oak Leaf Swag and sprayed them with glue and glittered the, with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz before adding them across the remainder of the card.  White mats and layers were added to finish the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue. What a simple looking but gorgeous sample, not simple as in easy but simple as not over done and I just love what you've done with Julia die, like I said yesterday there are so many different ways to use your dies and that's what we love about them.
Sending love and hugs and a big thank you for your beautiful inspiration xxx

Hi Sue,

The Julia die is pretty enough as it comes out of the die but really sings when made up into a frilly rosette as you've done here and I love the Oak Leaf flourish too - another must-have...

This is such a great card. The Julia die is one of my favorites although I have not pleated it before. I did see Julia's take on this.
Thanks, Sam. You did a great job of explaining everything to me.
Everyone, have a great week. We have something to look forward to.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful and rather elegant card today. The Julia die is already pretty but looks lovely when turned into a rosette.

We still have plenty of snow lying around but the main roads appear to be clear for which I am grateful as I have to take our middle cat to the vets for her annual booster jab. Hope everyone else with snow is coping with travel and staying safe.


Lynn Dalby said...

Hello Sue.

Great Card, I like the rosette and layout. Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Something a bit unusual as its not square. Love it, the whole composition...

DeCor said...

Really interesting what you have done with this card. The Julia die is so versatile.

Donita Naylor said...

Hello Sue,

An interesting layout shape today. Like a buggy you could hitch to a unicorn. I'm amazed that the same die that matches sunflowers can also become this magnificent rosette. Thanks for giving us the magic to do the transformations.
