Thank You

Hi crafters!  I can't stay away from the Pixie Powders for long so here is another one!  I cut the decorative die from the Heather die set into a piece of coconut white card twice, side by side.  Next I used Midnight Blue and Aqua Lagoon Pixie Powders onto another piece of coconut white card to create a colourful background piece which I glued behind the die cut outs.  I cut the Flora die in white and added it to the centre of the card with small pearls on the flowers.  I created a multi layered frame for my sentiment using the Double Stitched Nobles Octagon die set and added it over a white octagon backing piece.  I cut the Thank You mini Expression die out of a leftover piece of my pixie powder background and glued it to the middle of the frame.  I used the Double Pierced Rectangle dies to add a thin white frame around the entire card then finished it with white on white mats. The finished dimensions are 6" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Gorgeous card Sue.pixi powders are fun.

Steph Cotterill said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Sue wishing you a day of happiness and love from all that know you, you deserve a rest day maybe ?
I'm living the Pixie background and the idea of cutting the Heather die into the cardstock is lovely the only thing is that the gorgeous beautiful Flora die is lost just a little and it's far too lush not to stand out maybe it should have had a little blue ink kissed lightly found its edge so we could see it's full beauty but all said a great way to start a special day ☺
Sending birthday hugs to a very special lady xxx
