Thank You

Hi crafters!  Although this card started out as black and white, you will see from some of the close up pics, it is a bit more than that.  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card using the Sublime Swirls 3D embossing folder.  Next I cut the Ivy Garden Background out of black card.  I rubbed each of the pieces with Enchanted Gold Gilding Polish for an antique look.  I glued the ivy pieces into each of the corners.  I cut a thin frame using the Double Pierced Noble Circles and added mounting foam to raise it.  I attached it in the centre of the card and glued the ivy ring die into the centre of the frame.  I cut a small centre as a base for the sentiment.  The Thank you mini expression was cut in black and gilded and glued to the centre of the card.  Black and white mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

I love this die and can't help but think of Ivy as for Christmas also each time I see it ! along with Holly of course! x
Did someone say that " C " word ? but as we know it looms early for crafters in planning their projects especially! x

Steph Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Such opulence. The dies are gorgeous, every sample and card I've seen in the group are just amazing. Like Jan on the Fosse, I must think about guilding more, in fact I need to try and get back to crafting, so much has been invested on dies etc and for whatever reason my interest has been lost. I need a big kick up the rear !!!
Have a great day xxx

Hello Sue, a great card, love the gilding polish, it really lifts the black and makes it less stark against the white. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Hi Sue. Love the texture of the background and the gilding polish really brings out the ivy. Sue xxx

Donita Naylor said...

That is such a wonderful embossing folder.

In black, this does nothing for me. Maybe green would have been a better color. I like the gilding polish, too, and it would have also been lovely on green.

Best to all,
Donita

Good Morning Sue

I have to say that the pictures you have posted with the card at an angle really give the full effect of the Gilding Polish. It works exceptionally well on the black card to great effect. We all know how you love your black and white cards and although it will not suit some people it is good that you cover the use of all types of card and colours for us. I personally really appreciate seeing something that I might not have considered.

Take care and have a great day.

Great card Sue.

Scottydog said...

I do love monochrome cards as I think they always look very stylish & the use of the gilding wax gives this card an opulent look. Must try this as I have all the elements. Thank you Sue.

Tressa said...

Lovely card. The iPad doesn't do the photos justice for obvious reasons. Gilding polish on black card invariably looks wonderful.

Good Morning Sue. Beautiful card Sue. I love black and white but you have gone one further with the polishes. This is lovely .I love how the polish highlights the details of the leaves in the light. I love also that it can be used for any occasion. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

Very striking card this morning, love the soft pillows created with the embossing folder and while the black and white design would be great anyway the addition of the gilding polish really brings out the details in the ivy leaves and gives the whole a lovely vintage feel...

I love this card Sue and the holding was really lifts it. It was beautiful when I first looked and thought it was just monochrome, but I do love the wax highlights. And the 3D backing folder really does it justice. It's perfect. Have a good day everyone.

Wonderful card this morning using some of my favorites. I love the Ivy Garden die set (Frances, I never thought of Christmas but what a great idea) and black card with gilding polish is such a winner. Sublime Swirl was a must have for me the first time I saw it. This card was perfect to me.
A happy middle of the week to everyone.

Lovely design. I know most people like the black card but it's not to my taste. I'd prefer dark green with under the gilding polish. Gorgeous 3D embossing folder.
Take care everyone.

Like the idea of the gilding cream on the
