Hello bloggers!  I wanted to show off the new Pinpoint embossing folder, Graded Diamonds, with this card.  I embossed a piece of milk card using it for my background.  Next I went over the top of it very lightly with Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish to just highlight the pinpoint feature to it.  Next I used the Classic Adorned Octagon section cut in Antique Gold as a backdrop for my focal element.  Next I cut the Sophia die in milk card with both sections and layered it up.  I cut a small Octagonal frame using the Double Stitched Octagon set and added a piece of acetate to the back of it before adding a thin edge of mounting foam.  I seated it in the middle of the layers and cut the Hello mini expression a few times out of milk card.  I stacked them then glued it into the centre of the acetate.  I used the Passion Flower die to make two milk card scrunched flowers as accents.  I seated them on a cream satin ribbon bow on the side of the focal element.  Gold and milk card mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue and all
WOW What a stunning card this morning , the effect created from the pinpoint Embossing folder really works on this design. The hint of gold gilding polish gives the card expensive look and the passion flowers are beautiful. This would make a wonderful wedding card.
Crafty hugs to all, Wendy

Good Morning Sue

What a stunning folder and with the gilding polish it is absolutely gorgeous. I do love you embossing folders they are so different to others. The card today is truly beautiful with every detail complementing each other. Gorgeous. I agree with Wendy it would make a beautiful wedding card perhaps or for a Golden Wedding anniversary.

Hi Sue. This is beautiful and the beauty and detail picked up through your photos shows just how pretty this sample is from the folder to the last floral finishing touch its stunning.
Stupid football !!!!! WHO sits indoors in the most glorious weather watching over paid boys kick a ball around instead of walking round the prettiest of country parks with the pretty sound of bird song ? Stupid game lol..... no craft pocket money for me, not entirety true, but I'd have liked to come away with enough to treat myself to a die as well as a couple of folders, but I'm grateful that you helped me sell enough to top up my craft shelf ☺
Sending sunny smiles your way xxx

These colors look so soft together. On my screen it looks like the Sophia sections were done in white, like the "hello" sentiment. The scrunched Passion Flowers in milk languish in such a soft, lovely way, and together the milk, white and antique gold make such a coordinated whole. Thank you for this idea and for naming the embossing folder.

We're hoping for the names of a few other folders, like the one you used in the Warmest Wishes card on Thursday and the From Me to You card on Friday.

The curiosity that has set in is about what you'll be demoing on Hochanda, and whether there will be a great deal on multiple sets like there was on the Octagons when I missed it by a few minutes.

Falling asleep after working Sunday night. I hope everyone has a pleasant week.

Hi Sue- this is a very ornate and elegant card. The pinpoint embossing folder is so useful and I particularly like the touch of acetate which creates a shadow effect. Thank you for yet another amazing card and ideas.

Gorgeous card I forget to hoik out my little stash of milk card and use -note to self!
I now have a few of your mini expressions dies and they are brilliant They can be the focal point on a smaller card (my usual size) or really enhance a bigger project x

Scottydog said...

Love these pinpoint embossing folders, they do enhance the cards. I hadn’t realised that you had used antique gold until I read your description, my first thought was coffee & cream, what a lovely combination. I also think this would make a nice wedding card. Thank you Sue, looking forward to seeing you on HOCHANDA.

Any card using the Classic Adorned Octagonal dies is a winner for me, Sue. This is stunning.

Hi Sue, I think that this card is gorgeous. The Graded Diamonds embossing folder is lovely and the gilding polish does indeed highlight it beautifully. I really like the sentiment on acetate and being raised from the body of the card, it gives it another dimension.
