Thinking Of You

Hi bloggers!  Wisteria, white and a touch of black for today's offering! I started with a piece of wisteria card and embossed it with the Brambled Rose Embossing folder for texture.  I cut a strip of double pearls down the middle and added them to the top and bottom edges of the card.  For the focal element I cut the Avery die in white using the larger decorative edge, then added a think black decorative edge to it to set it apart.  I backed it with white and added mounting foam to the back.  I cut one more of the Avery die in white, but used the inner cutting edge.  I matted the inside section with wisteria card,  then put a larger black mat over it so it showed through the outer detail and nipped the die in half.  I seated the Avery halves horizontally to the outside of the focal die which I attached in a vertical manner in the centre of the card.  I cut the centre of the die in wisteria card for the base to my Think Of You sentiment.  I added three small flowers from the Chloe die set.  White, wisteria and black mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. I don't know if it's my screen on my moby but it's not showing the real beauty of the Wisteria cardstock, it's such a shame as it's so pretty and delicate and goes with all the other purple shades and more as you've shown us here. The depth of the folder is stunning your photography details every beautiful layer and die to perfection. Thanks for sharing your endless inspiration every day, have a lovely day creating your amazing work xxx

Beverly Fuchs said...

Hello Sue,

Such an elegant card today created with the Avery die, one of my favorites. I love all the curls and swirls and I've found that a lot of the waste can be used along with your floral elements for that "little extra" touch. She looks lovely sitting on the deeply embossed background. A real beauty.

Have a wonderful day.

Beverly

Good Morning Sue. Gorgeous card today. I agree with Stephanie about the wisteria coloured card. It doesn't show the the true beauty of the colour on my tablet either. But I get the message. And I love the embossing folder...I think it's time I treated myself to a new one...errr...could be this little beauty lol. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone in. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Morning Sue,
Stunning card. I love the depth of the EF. I will have to put it o my wish list as I do have rather a big collection of them and am running out of excuses (to my better half), for buying more.
I love the wisteria colour so much that I've had my nails painted with it. lol
Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

I love the Wisteria that and Periwinkle are the two colours I like best. However sadly this morning this looks grey and dull. I know it wont be in real like so its a real shame. But a lovely card design and I am trying to imagine it in its real glory lol.

Hi Sue, a lovely card and even with the black it has a soft and gentle look about it. I think it would be perfect for one of those sad cards that we have to make.

Sorry Sue that should have read Avery the predictive text attacks again!

karenlotty said...

I bet this is even prettier in the flesh as the photo has lost the beautiful wisteria colour
The sentiment sits so perfectly on those centre element

On my screen the Wisteria looks gray but I ordered some to see it for myself. This is a lovey card showing off Avery.
Everyone have a great Tuesday,

Hi Sue. Such a lovely card today but I think it needs some of your lovely flowers. Perhaps you are showing us that you can still make lovely cards which have less dimension to help with postage costs, but I am missing seeing your lovely flowers though.
