Happy Birthday

Hi bloggers!  I started with the background and used Frosty Sparkle Glitter Kiss through the Retro Christmas mask.  I love how this mask works so well when not used with Christmas cards too!  Next I cut a frame using the Stitched Pegboard die set out of milk card.  I added mounting foam to raise it and attached it over my background.  Next I cut two of the Floral Melody corners in milk card.  I cut the separate flowers out of blush card and attached them underneath so they showed through the corner, then attached them in opposite corners.  I cut the Happy Birthday Mini Expression a couple of times out of blush card and stacked them then glued them in the centre of the frame.  Milk and blush mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are
 7 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size.  all for now, Sue x

Hello Sue,

This card just speaks to me. It is so delicate and lovely. The milk card with the blush card is so pretty. The mask and the glitter kiss just adds the perfect amount of sparkle. I love it.

Your shows were wonderful this weekend. I learned so many new things. Thank you for sharing with us your wonderful gift.

Have a wonderful day.

Morning lovely lady, this is just gorgeous, the design is just beautiful with the frame, the corner floral element and simple sentiment, the soothing calming colour scheme, a simple, delicate sample of a card I'm happy to make, clean and fresh. Like hundreds of other Sue followers I really loved watching you over the past two days, in my mind there is nothing nicer than watching you work magic with the dies you have designed and show your love and pride in each sample you make. That's the reason you were named and awarded Best Die Designer - you are the best.
Have a lovely day Sue knowing how much pleasure you shared round the world xxx

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

What a lovely card, so softly pretty and feminine - and that Retro Christmas mask doesn't look at all out of place here, nothing overtly festive about it, just a fabulous textured backdrop for the sentiment...


Anonymous said...

Hi Sue - such a pretty and delicate card and the mask works beautifully with the dies. Wasn’t able to watch your show as have been away but hopefully they recorded ok, or I’ll watch on catch-up so am looking forward to seeing your demos. Sending best wishes

Good morning Sue,
Such a beautiful pretty feminine card today. Yvonne xx

Unknown said...

This is so pretty! Now when did this Retro Christmas Mask appear on the scene? You're right, it doesn't just say Christmas. It says Birthday pretty well.

Compared to the Red Glitter Kiss, this Frosty Sparkle is subtle. What a great look!

Glad to hear you sold out on Hochanda.

Well done! You're amazing!

Best to you and all the Wilsonettes.


Princess Pixie! said...

Hi Sue
Such a pretty card x
Blush is a one of my favourite colours on cards and I was lucky enough to pick a few packs up from Ally Pally last year - last of the stock apparently. Trouble is don't want to use it - too precious x
You are next on Hochanda on my birthday - did you arrange that specially for me?!

This design is so pretty. Thanks for sharing this lovely card design. Great shows on hochanda. I was able to watch the rest of your shows and enjoyed all of them. Great idea about the coffee filters and parchment paper. Too bad the glitterbitz pieces don't come off the parchment as well as regular type of glitter. Looking forward to using the filters and parchment in my crafting. I don't drink coffee either, but I have bought some coffee filters to use in my crafting.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful soft and gentle card and the Retro Christmas mask is certainly not out of place here and is the perfect backdrop for the Floral Melody Corners, love it. Congratulations on the sell-out of the ODS, I enjoyed all of your shows and will re-watch them through the week to make sure that I didn't miss out on any tips :-)


Lynne L said...

Hi Sue Oh today card is so beautiful I love the subtle colours the pretty Mask and the beautiful floral corners it's all just so elegant I had a busy day yesterday so recorded your shows hopefully I'll be able to enjoy watching them later

Pauline Austen said...

Such a pretty card to start the week off. Those corners are delightful. Just wish that I could get hold of that blush card.
The parchment tip was a real bonus but I'll have to search catch up to find out more about the coffee filters.
Have a Great week everybody. Hugs xx Pauline
