For You

Hi bloggers!  I thought I would share one of the Celtic sample cards that I made.  I started with a piece of Petrol Blue card as my background.  I cut three of the Keira die in white and two in black.  I nipped each of the in half and glued the pointy ends towards the edge of the card, alternating the colours.  Next I cut a wide strip of Petrol Blue card and gave it a thin black mat on the sides and added a white strip down the centre. then added mounting foam to the back.  I seated it in the centre of the card, covering the cut sides of the Keira dies.  I used the Erin die and cut it twice in black and once out of Petrol Blue card.  I cut one of the black die cuts in half and glued the cut sides to the top and bottom of the strip.  I used the blue one in the centre with the remaining black die cut as a offset shadow for it.  I used the Double Stitched Squares and cut a small white frame and added mounting foam to the back.  I seated it in a diamond orientation with a strip of vellum between it and the Erin die.  I cut forked ends into the vellum and cut the For You sentiment in black and glued it across the vellum strip.  White, petrol blue and black mats and layers completed the card.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue. You certainly throw some curve balls with your designs, dare I say I'm not a lover of this design but what a genius way to show the versatility of your new Celtic collection. It could look very complicated to a new crafter when in fact it's just the shapes within the design of the die if you get my drift. Today's sample would be a perfect make for a man's card, masculine, clean lines, and bold strong colours.
Thanks for sharing all your idea's and have a lovely day xxx

This card with these colours could be a great card for a man. With a change of colour great for a girl. So versatile.

Hi Sue, a lovely card this morning. Love the design and the way you have used the dies. . A man card, I think but with a different colourway it could be very feminine.

Good morning Sue,
A very different looking card today from your usual. This one is more masculine & would be ideal for anyone who struggles with Men's cards. Yvonne xx

ursula said...

Quite unusual card today, but it is lovely....luv Ursula xx

karenlotty said...

This is lovely I particularly like the way you have set the sentiment onto vellum I am going to try this with some of your older dies like the marvellous square I think that’s what they’re called or is it majestic squares!

Scottydog said...

Yes certainly a good male card. Very effective, ideal colour as well. Will have to have a play, but don’t have any Celtic Dies. Thank you Sue

sued99 said...

I love the way you have used the dies to make a very detailed card. It’s not really to my taste but nevertheless a great design. X

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I would normally associate Celtic designs with more feminine cards but with this one, probably because of the colours you have chosen, I can see it would work very well for more masculine cards too.

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
What a great card to make up to the sentiment stage and have on the ready for almost any occasion and recipient, so versatile. Made up in different colours, what a great last minute emergency stash ! (Though I would love to get hold of some of that beautiful petrol blue card too)
