All The Best

Hello crafters and Happy Valentine's Day!  I don't have anything with hearts on it but I think the silver and pale pink give this quite a romantic look to the  card so I hope this will suffice!  I started with a piece of antique Silver card and embossed it with the Pinpoint Checkerboard embossing folder.  I matted it with a powder pink mat on the top and bottom.  Next I cut three of the top layer of the Anna die, two of them in white and the other one out of powder pink card.  I used the white ones by themselves to the sides of the card.  I added a second layer to Anna in white and I backed it with Antique silver card.  I mounted it in a diamond orientation along with the other two across the card.  I used mounting foam to raise the centre up for dimension.  I cut the All The Best out of powder pink and attached it to a white shadow and mounted it in the middle of the die cut.  I used the Wildflower dies to make two dimensional flowers which I glittered with Iced Snow.  I seated them on a white satin ribbon bow and added leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white, antique silver and powder pink mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x 8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue, and Happy Valentine's Day to you and Colin and to our Particrafters looking in 💖
Oooo I'm in love with this for sure, but where's your new folder which is so appropriate for the day ? Everything about this sample is gorgeous the dies you chose and design, all snuggled up together. We're having the most romantic day today, me stuck in my rheumatology clinic for hour's over at Leeds, whilst my keeper walks hand in lead with the other female in his life at the local park ! Great lol on the plus side I know I'll have a Valentine's gift that lasts longer than any over expensive flowers, wine or chocolate it's just a guessing game which one of the metal gifts he's chosen ☺
Have a lovely day. Hugs xxx

Good morning Sue and Happy Valentines day to all./
I love today's card so much. I will definitely be using pink and grey on the card I am planning to make today. It's a combination that I haven't used before and I do wonder why. The design of your card is beautiful too as are all your creations.

Hi Sue. Another beautiful card, and this time for Valentine's Day !!! The Anna die is a beautiful Triple layer die set.

Thanks for sharing Sue love from Tres X X X

Joan DR said...

Another beautiful card. I love to see your videos and watch you on Hochanda. I do
wish you would have a link to your products here so when I am looking at your cards I can go
right to the store and see them, their cost, buy, etc. I thought there is a Creative expressions store? Just don't see any links on this page.
