Hello Friend

Hi crafters!  I started today's card by cutting the Nina die into a piece of coconut white card.  I backed it with Blue Dusk card.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles to create a frame. I cut a multi layered frame using both white and blue dusk card.  I added the frame over the background and cut another piece of white card as a background to seat the frame on.  I cut a circular centre then stamped my sentiment on it and mounted it in thee centre of the card. I used the Petite Dianthus to make a couple of flowers to add to the corner.  The card was completed with white and blue dusk card mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Gorgeous. Don't you think it's totally brilliant how just one die cut into a piece of cardstock can look so beautiful, add a few pretty flowers plus sentiment, surround them with clean fresh frames and you could have a gift to frame in a glass fronted box frame. I've looked two or three times and I really love how clever you are to design dies that not only make the most beautiful cards to give but can also be a gift, you really are a genius within the craft world. Hope you have an enjoyable day creating xxx

Good Morning Sue. And a very welcome Hello Friend to you too. What an ideal card to show especially on my first morning back. Yes we are home safe and sound. I feel you made this just for me lol. My favourite colours and a little lacy. And a perfect sentiment that hit me as soon as I opened it up. Now I have to catch up on all I have missed and if this mornings sample is anything to go by I am going to have a wonderful morning watching your videos in between watching the washing machine go around and around doing its cycle. Thankyou so much Sue. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.
