Thank You

Hello crafters!  I have a nice octagonal card for you for a Monday morning!  I started by cutting one of the rings of the Classic Adorned Octagons into white card.  I backed it with royal blue card.  I cut two of the Bella die in white and offset them and attached them to the centre.  I cut the Thank You mini expression in black and seated on a white octagon with a blue mat.  I used the Double Stitched Octagons to make a black and white multi- layered frame.  I attached it to a larger piece of white card and added three white pearls in the corners.    White, blue and black mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are
 7 1/2" x  7 1/.2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Steph Cotterill said...

This sentiment must be returned to you. For starting the complete Sue Wilson brand - your blog, that if you look back a few years or so ago look so totally different, dies and style of samples just put a smile on my face in comparison to the inspiration you give now. Talking of which, it seemed no time had gone by after you launched this collection that the most amazing cards were being proudly and lovingly shared round the world via Paul's fb group. So for all that's gone by, all that you give us now, and what's to follow, then it's you that deserves today's sentiment. Have a wonderful day to match the wonderful sample to start a fresh week xxx Thank You ☺

Morning Sue, I love this card, looks so elegant. Love all the dies used, I think I need all the mini sentiment dies. Love Jean xxx

Donita Naylor said...

I sure hope Bella works this well with the Hexagons. I especially like how you repeated the shape inside Bella with the same color as outside. The difference between the Octagons and Hexagons was too slight to justify my getting both sets, so I'm being content with the Hexagons and happy to invest in the squared squares for a dramatically different look.

Bella is such a beauty!

And if the Octagons are anything like the Hexagons, they're a dream to work with.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable start to the work week.

Best,
Donita in R.I.

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

I fell in love with the CA Octagon die set precisely because of the bubbles and swags cuts so this card is timed perfectly to give me some more inspiration - love the simplicity and the contrasting colours that show off the bubbly pattern and the Bella set has just moved up the wish list too...

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. What a very striking card today. I have invested rather heavily in all your hexagon shaped dies as that is my shape of choice, but having seen this card I may have to start looking more seriously at all the octagons. Too many dies and not enough income, oh dear, I am just going to have to start doing without food!!!

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a most striking card that makes a very bold statement. Anyone receiving this would know that the 'Thank You' was sincerely meant and I thank you for the inspiration. The royal blue card is such a lovely colour and I even like the black edging :-)

Hi Sue. Sorry I have not been around for a couple of days but I have been unwell. All the cards you have shown are all GORGEOUS !!! I really love todays card. I think it is a classic Sue Wilson style card and it is STUNNING !!! I love the colours you have used. The Classic Adorned Octagon dies and the Stitched Octagon Dies are fabulous Sue. I really love these designs. The Bella is a Gorgeous die set to. They all mix and match so lovely together. Your sentiment die is the perfect fit for the centre Octagon. This is a really beautiful card. Thank you Sue. Lots of love from Tres X X X
