For Someone Special

Hi bloggers!  Today's card is an easy clean and simple style card with a pretty pop of colour!  I started by cutting the Rose Flower Square in white.  I glued it onto a piece of acetate.  I filled in the sections of it with Crystal Tints (two coats) but I left it lighter in sections of the rose to look like it had been shadowed.  I allowed it to dry, then added a white backing piece and a thin black mat.  I cut a wider white square using the Double Stitched Squares and matted it then added it to a larger white background.  I cut the For Someone Special sentiment in black and glued it beneath the flower.  The card was completed with a white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Beautiful. I was so thrilled to be chosen to receive this gift when you launched it last year. It cuts so well and the fall outs a decent size for me to handle to piece back, the tiny pieces I get help with lol. So I have two cut out ready to use but had a request for 4 cards which I need to concentrate on when I have full feeling in my fingers. These square flower dies are exquisite and so easy to make some really pretty cards with. I hope to own the full set at some point - no, I will own the full collection at some point and when I get round to making a card with my cut out rose I'll do what you said. Have a really lovely day xxx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this CAS card and the Crystal Tints really shine. By sheer coincidence I have this morning made a card with this very die but I have used some of my new Pixie Powdered card to paper piece and I am very pleased with the finish. Your dies are so versatile and I really can't make a bad card when using them so thank you very much.
