Sparkled and Recessed Card

Hi crafters!  Think sparkly and recessed and you have a lovely combination for a beautiful card, don't you think?

The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Donita Naylor said...

Ever notice how much more exciting a card is when you have the dies? I have none of these (except the Passion Flowers). But kudos to those who do -- this is a lovely card!


Steph Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Sparking recessed and beautiful. I'm loving the samples showing your new dies and look forward to seeing lots more plus the video tutorials that match, so I'm off to watch how you put this very pretty sample together. Thanks for your never ending inspiration, wish I was as craft minded as you. Have a lovely day xxx

Hi Sue,

Another lovely card this morning, the dies you've used work so well together - the Diamond Squares background is already on my list but the Michelle is growing on me too, it's so pretty and would lend itself beautifully to some inlay work...


Judith Tucker said...

Another beautiful card. Love the colours you’ve used x

lydia jordan said...

Morning Sue.
Gorgeous card, I think I need the Diamond Square background die can see this used in many ways.

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. Gorgeous colours for today's card. I like Aqua and White together. Lovely use of dies as well. The dies you have used today are just a few that I don't have..... but I know by looking at your sample.... I have dies that I can substitute to make a very similar card. This what I love about crafting. Recreating but with your own little alterations. Thankyou for sharing Sue
I usually watch your video first before my comment. But today I will have to watch later. Busy morning ahead. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds
