Just Because

Hello crafters!  I just love these flower square dies so I have loads of cards to share with you.  I started by cutting the Daffodil Flower Square out of white card, then attaching a piece of vellum to the back of it.  I used a Mustard Seed Distress marker for the flower and a Forest Moss marker for the leaves and Tumbled Glass for the background.  I did the colouring from the back side of the attached vellum.  I added a white backing too it then added mounting foam to the back.  I cut a larger piece of coconut white card for the background, then cut the Hexagonal Border out of white card.  I put a dab of glue on to the back of all of the fall away pieces in the centre of the border while they were still in the border, then laid it on to the side of my white card and popped them out in the same configuration to create a unique border for my card.  I attached the flower in the upper corner area and added a shadowed Just Because to the lower corner.  White and black mats were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue, a really pretty card. Everything just goes together so well and the daffodil gives such a cheery feel to the card.xx

Never would have guessed that was one piece of vellum colored yellow, green and blue flookingblike paper piecing!

And how inventive of you to use the hexagons themselves instead of the honeycomb! Bees can’t do that, even with a little dot of glue on each. Do you invent something new every day? Maybe a couple or three a week? While, unseen by us, you’re inventing the dies that’ll come along next. Or next after that.

I hope it staying new never gets old for you.

Yesterday the time change threw me off. We change next Sunday.

Oh yes, loved this card. My fav of the flowers in a frame, although I like the other’s. Justblike this one the most.


Karen Drew said...

Lovely card. Daffodils are my favourite flower as they let me know spring is on its way. Love how you used the hexagonal border fall away pieces. Glad you said hw you did it as I imagined you putting each one into place!!!!!! Lol.

Steph Cotterill said...

Happy, bright and cheerful, what more do you need to start a new week. It's just beautiful Sue. I want to say "thank you" you've made so many talented crafters through designing your own brand of dies and although ill NEVER reach your standard or those lovely people I've connected with via facebook, people that visit market each month adore your dies too. I can now accommodate people that want to give cards to friends that own allotments which is so fun to see their expression when they see your barrow full of Veg lol they smile, I smile, so I hope this thank you makes YOU smile ☺ so maybe a greenhouse next ? That's one I get asked for such a lot. Hope you have a lovely day and keep warm xxx

Hello Sue and all

Lovely bright sunny card today, love the hexagonal pieces for the VERY unique border. Your imagination knows no bounds Sue, like most I would have been putting them on piece by piece and ending up with nothing like this.

Trying to finish up some cards I need to make today so that I can start playing with my latest release dies and EF tomorrow to do some cards I want to make, we are so lucky!

Lovely card. As a parcher, I appreciate how well parchment paper can be used to colour as you have done. Impressed by the way in which you have made the border.... very effective.

Hello Sue
A beautiful card for this very cold and frosty morning.
The flower squares are such a great idea as they can be used for large or small cards.
The Daffodil square together with the Hexagon border look so attractive.

Hi Sue,
Such a lovely card, and thanks for the tip, it saves some time to make another card, as I have loads of your dies to choose from. Roll on spring!!
Hope that I can watch you on hochanda on Saturday on replay, as I haven't got the opportunity to watch you here and it'll be a joy to watch you create your magic.
Hugs, Rose

Hi Sue, a beautiful card. Fresh and pretty with the spring daffodil.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I think these flower squares are such a good idea as they are so versatile. You can easily make a smaller card using them or, as in your example, use them as a focal point on a larger card. Great.


Pat L said...

Hi Sue
Love your flower squares and they will definitely be on my Christmas list, thanks for explaining how you achieved the hexagon border I will give it a go

Love and hugs to everyone

CCM said...

What a lovely design and great idea to attach a piece of vellum to the back of the cut flower then to do the colouring from the back side of the attached vellum. I know you have used this technique before but I never tried.It is about time.

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

The daffodil is such a happy, bright and beautiful flower, a real harbinger of Spring. You have done her proud with your Daffodil Flower Frame. Your card is so fresh and clean and delightful. I love the Hexagonal Border but hadn't even thought about use the waste to make a border. Only someone as clever as you would do that.

Neat way of using the waste from the border. I liked that you figured such a neat, perfect way of sticking those little pieces down. Very effective and a freebie too. Beautiful card.
