Single Celtic Background Card


Hi crafters!  It's a single die background (using the Caitlin die) and it also makes a fantastic masculine card, especially in those grey and maroon colours (with just a touch of silver!), don't you think?









 The finished dimensions are 8"
 x  8" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hi Sue. I will admit than when the photo first loaded I wasn't too sure if I liked it, but the more I look the more I like, I think it was the colour choice that I wasn't sure of, but it really is a nice design and as you've already stated - great for those men's cards, I think most of the Celtic dies are made to help card making for men a lot less traumatic lol along with your sports and wine etc frames of course.
Whatever the day brings hope it's a great one xxx

Hello Sue,

Lovely use of the Caitlin die in your card today. Great color choice for a male but with a change of color it would be great for females as well. Your video makes it seem so easy. Thanks for sharing.

Have a great weekend.

Good morning Sue.
Such a lovely card and an awesome video that makes it look relatively easy. I say relatively because I'm not able to focus very well right now and pray that it's a transient condition as I've been told that my eyes have had all the surgery they can take.
I love the colour combination and a real bonus as it could be a great card for a man. Thank you so much Sue and have a nice weekend.

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
It certainly is a fabulous male card, but is not reserved for them. I'm not a maroon fan, but coupled with silver it's really elegant.
Have ordered a couple of your new die set, but am waiting what you are going to do with the triple layer dies.
Hugs, Rose

This Celtic collection of dies is WONDERFUL and i am really looking forward to putting mine to good use!
Love the design of this card and the colour mix is GREAT - but there is so much scope for this die set and all
the other dies in the complete collection, for the guys and the gals!
Thank you sooooo much for your never ending treats for us and all your clever work to give us crafters such

Hi Sue,
A card I think is very suitable for a man, most unusual colours but I love them. Great to see a card suitable for a male. Love the detail but it is not too fussy.

Dorothy Macdonald said...

Hi Sue,


I am always looking for ideas for the men and this card would fit the bill.

Very manly, with the colours used, though if done in bright colours and the odd flower
added, what a lovely backdrop for a lady.

I love using dies that are versatile.

Thanks Sue for the video, as you know I welcome the video every time.

Love n hugs
