For Someone So Special

Hi there crafters!  Today's card uses wisteria and iris card with a touch of black as an accent.  I started with wisteria card as my background and cut two of the Climbing Floral Vine in white and glued them to the sides of the card.  I cut the Climbing vines again two more times out of Iris card and used the fall away from the flowers and paper pieced it back into the original white ones on either side.  Next I cut two of the Nina dies, once in Iris and once in black.  I used the back version to shadow the Iris one.  I added a white backing and added it with foam in the centre of the card.   I stamped the sentiment and added a thin black mat and added it to the centre of the Nina die. The card was completed with iris, black and white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue
This is so lovely x
I love the iris and wisteria. They are such a beautiful combination.
Don't get me started on the Climbing Floral Vine. Such a beautiful die. It is such a pretty delicate accent and lends itself perfectly to paper piecing.
Big thumbs up from me for this gorgeous card x
For those of you who now in shock that I am commenting so early I apologise. I have been awake since 2 and figured that a cuppa and comment before attempting to get some sleep was a good idea.
Think we are in for some more lovely weather although the possibility of thunder has been mentioned. Hopefully I will sleep through it and wake to be greeted by sunshine and blue skies x
Sending lots of love to all specially missing friends x

What a beautiful way to start the new week. Your chosen colour palette is gorgeous your choice of dies perfect and your still photo's show the detail of the Nina and Climbing Floral Vine wonderfully. What with this stunning first sample of the week and yet another sunny morning to wake up to (unheard of in Lancashire) what more could we ask for. Good morning Sue hope your day starts as wonderfully as ours and continues till sun down xxx

Hi Sue,

So clean, so simple, so beautiful...love the choice of dies and colours...

Muriel - I do like your style - see it, want it, 'ave it!

PP - it was a bit of a shock to see you commenting so early...you probably overdid it with watching the Royal Wedding back to back across the channels - personally, I thought Bishop Michael nearly stole the show, he was fabulous...

Hello Sue,

Two perfect pairs this morning, wisteria and iris card and Nina and the Climbing Floral Vine.
What else would you need to make the perfect card. It truly is lovely and the Nina die is one of my favorites.

Hope that you enjoy your day. We finally have some sunshine after eight continuous days of rain.

Absolutely perfect combo today, i love the climbing vines at the sides.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, sorry I'm a bit late but it has been a glorious day here and I have spent much of it working in the garden or watching RHS Chelsea on the TV. I love today's card using my favourite wisteria and the Climbing Floral Vine is beautiful especially when paper pieced as you have done here and it complements Nina perfectly.

I hope everyone has had as an enjoyable and productive day as I have.
