Background Flower Card


Hi there my crafty friends!  This video shows you how to make a quick flower using the background die and you can also refresh your Fire and Ice technique skills too!



























The finished dimensions are 7 1/4" x  7 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. What a clever idea. Honestly where do you pick your ideas from lol. There can't be that many of us that all of a sudden look at one of our background dies and think flower, if I could spend 5 minutes with the creative side of your brain with a pen and notebook I'd have enough knowledge to last me my crafting lifetime lol. Not only have you given us a gorgeous fire and ice video, you've given something quite amazing and extremely clever thank you, and I have to mention your new collection, I'll be adding a new frame or two and my usual Finishing Touch saviour lol. Will be watching you turn your background into a flower when it's quiet enough to take it all in. Hope you have a lovely day as you work up to your new launch xxx

Hello Sue and all
Oh Wow !! Your fire and ice technique is always lovely but in this card it is outstanding. Love the flower and again, the Abigail die is one I thought “I don’t need that” WRONG !!
Abigail is gorgeous in positive and negative, lovely card, great video

Hello Sue,

Such an elegant card. The design is lovely and the "fire and ice" technique just takes it to another level. Clever use of the background die cut to make flower.

Have a great weekend.

What a gorgeous card and video today Sue. I am completely blown away with this one. I don;t recall seeing the fire and ice technique before but I will look for it again, If I could make a card even half as lovely as this one I would be in seventh Heaven.
Have a lovely weekend Sue and all.

Good Morning Sue. Ohhhh wow. What a great card and a brilliant video. Just had a refresher on the fire and ice. I love this technique but never had the nerve to do it..... I will now. And best of all I have the Celtic Square die ..... I have made some really nice cards using this die..... but never a flower.... Good thinking Sue. Thankyou. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Hello Sue, what a really opulent card today which I think deserves a sentiment more than "Just Because"!
I have been looking at the dies in your new release and am really intrigued. Really excited to see what you can do with them.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love fire and ice and it looks stunning on the Celtic background. I hadn't realised that Abigail could look so lovely with the gilding flakes shining through and a flower made from what is essentially a square is inspired. Love it all.
