For You

Hi bloggers!  I started this card by embossing a piece of coconut white card that I attached some vellum to in order to give it a softer look.  I used the Heart Scrolls embossing folder and extended the pattern.  Next I inked the Summer Rose frame die with Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade and Crushed Olive Distress Oxides and letterpressed it to transfer the colour into the debossed areas in the die.  I did this twice and nipped away the larger corners, added mounting foam and attached them in opposite corners.  Next I cut the Poppy die in white and nipped in to it to create a more square design and attached it in the centre of the card.  I cut the centre from the Sophia die and added a vellum backing and layered it on top.  The sentiment was cut from the Summer Rose Frame die and inked with Picked Raspberry and glued into the centre.  White on white mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now,  Sue x

Hello Sue, a really pretty lacy card and the poppy die is beautiful how you've used it. Your sentiment dies really add a touch of elegance. Xx

Hi Sue,

Such a pretty and delicate card. I like your design and how you have used the Summer Rose die set. The colors that you have chosen are just delightful. Like you, I love to use vellum whenever I can. In addition to adding a softness to your card it also creates an illusion of transparency. The card is as fresh as a "Summer Rose."

Have a wonderful day.

Hi Sue. What a pretty delicate inspirational gift you have for us. The embossed and lightly inked background emphasizes the the centre point so nicely and the corner rose die with that little pop of colour pulls it all together, but the vellum also gives that extra touch of softness, it's such a pretty relaxing piece of art. Have a lovely day whatever your plans wherever you are xxx
