Colourful Pieced Striplet Card



Hi bloggers!  While it isn't really paper pieced in the true sense of the technique, it is a very similar sort of look that is quite easy to recreate.








The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Heather Rogers said...

Good Morning Sue

A lovely card this morning. I love the striplet dies and the way you have done this to give the same effect is clever and I would never have thought of doing this and initially hadn't realised what you had done and thought it was a die I had missed LOL! Hence my deleted post :)

Hello Sue and all
beautiful card today, I really like the vine and use it a lot. The 3D folder really sets the background off with the sentiments too.
Have a lovely weekend, cold, windy and damp here, only the second day of winter -enough!!!

Hi Sue,

Lovely clean and simple card yet so full of impact - really like that 3D embossing folder you've used too...I don't have the Climbing Floral Vine as yet but maybe I can do something similar with the Petite Petals Striplet...

Ann said...

Good Morning Sue. This is simplicity itself..... and beautiful of course. I love it..... and the sentiment can be changed for other occasions if needed. The 3d folders are really fabulous. Really deep embossing. Up to press I only have one but I have my eye two others.... that I NEED lol. Well...didn't take long for the rain to appear after our holiday. It's throwing it down at the moment. Maybe it will clear the air a little. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Simple but yet so elegant, thanks for the awesome idea Sue. Love the new 3D embossing folder as well!!

Suzzette Yandle said...

I am loving this Splendid Garland embossing folder. I had a chance to use this folder yesterday. It came out beautifully first time with NO cracking of my card. And I did not even have to mist the card first. I even used some gilding polish across the high points. Great video for a faux pieced floral vine. Thank you for sharing your ideas.

Hi Sue,
I love this card for its simplicity and elegance. It looks easy to make it! The background embossing folder is gorgeous. I really love the soft colours. Thank you, Sue, for making and sharing cards like this one, giving hopes to those who love crafting but are less gifted than you.
Hugs from Toronto to you all and special hugs to all missing friends.
