Side Gemini Card


Hi crafters!  I have a wisteria and white card for you today that shows off a lovely way to use the Cetus Gemini die as a border edge, creating a double channel card effect.






























The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  9 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. My first thought was ' oooh this looks complicated' it's absolutely beautiful but more than my talent and brain can handle so I'm itching to watch your tutorial in a little while. I think Wisteria is way up in my list of go to colours it goes beautifully with the darker shades of deeper purple with black and plum it's best friend so I love this delicate look.
Thanks to a few blog buddies contacting 'our Sam' she is now aware of her luck ☺ well done chick.
I do hope you are somewhere warm Sue, if not wrap up warm and enjoy your day xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, look how pretty this card is, the wisteria colour is lovely but the way the border has been done it really cute, I like it, will watch video later when hubby gives me my breakfast.

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

cr@fty said...

Good morning Sue
Just got off night shift made a coffee watched your video perfect start to my day. I love the 'waste' edge of the Gemini die it looks like a jigsaw edge. Yesterday I used the tiny flowers on your lattice die and it looked so pretty. The hexagon sets always look amazing you can use them in so many ways. I'm looking forward to playing with the Octagon sets (I've ordered the other two lol!) I love today's card and enjoyed the video thanks for sharing. I'm off to bed!

Sue MacFall said...

Just stunning - the wisteria colour is gorgeous. Thank you Sue.

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card. I love your Gemini dies but not sure I like the jigsaw look on the sides. Beautiful colours. Thanks for your video.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, at first I was uncertain about the jigsaw effect but having watched the video I find it is much nicer than I thought. As far as I am concerned with wisteria and white card and lots of bling you can't really go wrong.

Laine - glad to see you kept your part of the bargain but did you receive a stunning card from PP? Hope the hospital transport doesn't mess you around too much and that the MRI goes smoothly.

Pauline Austen said...

Hi Sue, once again, this is a lovely card. I love your Gemini dies and have quite a collection now. Having trouble with WiFi so can't watch the video for another couple of days. Maybe the recent Bush fires have something to do with it, but I'm no technophobe either.
The wisteria card is such a lovely colour. Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

Dear Sue, Absolutely beautiful card today. Oh my God you have such an eye for detail. When I saw this card I thought you had brought out another die. I was looking for what die made the postage like edge on the center of the card. I never would have imagined it. Brilliant. Arlyn

Beautiful!!!

Just got in my Easter fillable sets and they are so beautiful. The detail is gorgeous just like the Heart fillables I already had. Having a blast playing with them....so good to be crafting again.

Great effect the way you've done the borders. A gorgeous card.

Welsh Dors said...

Lovely card. I like the unusual different layout, makes the card quite unique,

lorraine eastwood said...

Good evening lovely Sue and her crafty crew!

What an adorable card, suitable for both male and female methinks, very versatile and the colour combination is soft and stunning. Love the borders, very different and eye catching. Another superb design Sue, many thanksxxx
Frances, i nearly choked on my Diet Coke when i read your comment because you wouldn’t believe the day ive had at the hands of Forth Valley Royal and the NHS! I couldn’t sleep from 4am this morning in anticipation of potentially sleeping in and missing my appointment, i got up just after 6am and was ready to leave by 7.30am....you never know with patient transport when they will arrive, your warned that you should be ready from 8am but they are so unpredictable....i was still waiting at 10am with my appointment scheduled for 10.30 when the phone rang to tell me that all MRI scans were cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances! The only plus during this sorry tale was that the ambulance was so late that I hadn’t already left for the hospital. Its now rescheduled for a week on Friday listed as an emergency so fingers crossed....at least its an afternoon appointment so I don’t have to be ready until 12pm:-)
Thanks for all of the sweet welcome backs, i really appreciate it, more than i can say without making a real show of myself:-)
I’m really running on empty now, think i need an early night in preparation for tomorrow’s busy schedule, hair, shopping etc so i will say a sleepy farewell leaving it short and sweet for a change. Just before i go though, thanks for explaining some of our buddies absences, it really sheds some light on the situation for me.....i just hope that they all come back sometime soon:-(

Love and crafty hugs

Very different looking card Sue.

Latenight SandyH said...

Lovely card. The wisteria colour is beautiful. The Cetus is one of the Geminis I don't have but think I may have to remedy that.
Laine, sorry to read you had a bad night and that the transport didn't arrive and then the scan was cancelled. Hope you've had a good night's sleep tonight.
Take care everyone.
