Thank You

Hello crafters!  I selected a wisteria and white colour combo for this one.  I cut a square of wisteria card as my background.  I cut two of the Flora die in white and nipped them in half and glued them into the four corners.  I added pearls to all the flowers centres on them.  Next I cut a smaller square of wisteria card and embossed it with the Heart Scrolls embossing folder for texture.  I matted it with a thin black mat and then added it with foam in a diamond orientation in the centre of the card.  Next I stamped the Butterfly Circle Stamp To Die For  in black on white card and cut it out with the Ivy Garden Background circle.  I used Shaded Lilac ink around the edge while it was still in the die.  I dried it well with a heat tool then sprayed it with glue and added Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.  I mounted it with foam in the centre of the card.  Next I cut the very centre of the Ivy Garden die and added a white backing.  I cut the Thank You mini expression in black and glued it to the die cut and added it to the centre of the card.  The card was completed with white, black and wisteria card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now Sue x

Hi Sue. What a beautiful start to the week. Wisteria tones in with so many other colours and so easy on the eye but also shadows the darker colours too I love it and have more on order. I wish I had the dies on order too, I loved them as soon as you introduced us to them at launch, hopefully one day I can add them to my collection. The stamp you used almost looks slightly art deco, or is it that my eyes aren't fully focused yet ? Either way it's a beautiful delicate card that would also look gorgeous in many colour choices. Thanks for sharing your inspiration Sue, have an enjoyable day xxx

Hi Sue,

A lacy, delicate delight in wisteria and white using the Flora die and the Butterfly Circle stamp. The Stamps To Die For always add another dimension to your cards and I think they are so under used. The embossing is just the right touch to connect everything together.

Have a great day.

Beverly

Good Morning Sue. Another lovely card to start our week off...... and what a lovely card it is too. I have the flora die .....it's lovely to use as a full die in its own right...... and Ohhh so useful for filling in little spaces just by giving it a snip here and there. Beautiful sample today Sue. Thankyou. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.
