Miss You

Hello all!  I have been really wanting to share a few more of the new 3D embossing folders with you!  For this card, I started by embossing a piece of Slate Grey card with the new Bountiful Blossoms 3D folder.  I used Silver Dream gilding polish over the top of the embossed piece (you can see it nicely in some of the close up pics below).  For the focal element, I cut the Diamond Squares Background out of silver card, then used the Double Pierced Squares to cut it into a frame.  I added a small raised frame cut from the same die set but out of white card.  Next I cut the Sophia die in white which fit over the frame area perfectly.  I added the inner section of that die as a layer in white, then cut a thin frame out of the Double Stitched Octagons and added it with foam over a backing piece that I cut with a sticky adhesive sheet on it.  Before adding the frame, I peeled the backing paper off, added the frame and the Miss You mini expression.  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz to fill in where the remaining adhesive was still exposed.  White, Slate Grey and silver mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue and all.
WOW card this morning , so much different details. I love how the embossed blossom back ground works so well with the Diamond squares. The colour slate makes the card both great for the ladies and men. This is one of the cards I really enjoying reading how it was created and stands out that its a Sue wilson card.
Crafty hugs and well wishes to all... Wendy

Fab card Sue.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, wow this sample is beautiful, I love it, I have always been dubious of using the gilding wax because I always get it in the places I don't want but you have encouraged me to try again.

Still got some snow here but the road is clear although a little bit icy.

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

Hello Sue and all
The new 3D embossing folders are toooo tempting, they look lovely and now seeing the gilding on the detail makes them even more tempting.
Love the colours used in this card, very rich looking.

Hi Sue. We miss you but that will soon be put right ☺
I've seen all the new 3D folders and each one is just gorgeous. They are what I'm lacking in my craft stash and crafting life so in my opinion it would be rude not to own these, they enhance your samples so much and just help add to the wow factor I love how you've highlighted its beauty with the guilding paste. Its such a happy way to start the week thank you.
Sending love and hugs to you, have a great day and wrap up unless your somewhere mega hot lol xxx

Love this card; grey is underrated in crafting to me! I think it is beautiful and works well with colours like teal and purple too. Great card as ever Sue, thanks (I think, as usually I "have" to go and buy something else after seeing one of your cards!!).

Donita Naylor said...

The complexity of this card seems to be its strength. Love the contrast between round and square, blossom and diamond. I wonder what colors would send this to the moon.

Wishing everyone a happy Monday.

Good Morning, Sue
A beautiful card this morning!
The Bountiful Dreams Embossing folder highlighted with gilding polish looks stunning.
White, Slate Grey and Silver are just perfect together and I think this card would also look perfect with other colour combinations.

Hi Sue. I’ve been missing for a while and only home for a short time before going off again.
I’ve caught up with the samples over the last few weeks and some gorgeous beauties they’ve been, particularly yesterday’s and today’s.
I love the 3D embossing folders and have one of them already, although one or two more wouldn’t go amiss!

Hi Sue, a lovely card and I think that grey and silver make a very elegant combination. The new embossing folder is beautiful and I love using gilding polish/wax on my folders and although I still have to perfect my technique the results are usually pleasing.

Hello Sue
A beautiful luxurious card though I would have to see if I could alter it to fit in an 8x8 envelope.
The sun is out today but still cold

Suzzette Yandle said...

Lovely design today. Your Sophia die is one of my favorites.

Pawprintx4 said...

Good Morning, Everyone,
I love this card...everything. I am quite a fan of grey used in place of black and just in general with white. I heard that one of our card mfg here in the states is dropping grey from its new line. A big mistake in my opinion.
I think Sophia is one of my favorites in the tags & frame collection along with Julia. I wish I had the Diamond Squares background as I have seen it a lot lately.
Have a fabulous day. Hope your weather is clearing. We are in for some bad storms tonight...damaging hail & tornadoes and at midnight -4AM. Most people are in bed. Fingers crossed.

Hi Sue,

Another lovely creation that made me revised my wish list. I know I cannot have all your dies & EF's (unless I win the loterry) but I cannot resist temptation to add a few more to my collection before you'll launch the new collection.I've seen all the new 3D folders... beautiful.The gilding polish will give a lovely finish on each of them, not only on the BB folder used today. Thanks for give us a hint about what we'll see soon.

Hugs from Toronto to you all and special hugs to all missing friends.
