All The Best

Hello bloggers!  Jocelyn is having her day on the blog today!  I started with a piece of coconut white card and embossed it with the Brambled Rose embossing folder.  I cut a strip of double pearls in half an added a row to the top and bottom edges of the card.  Next I cut the Jocelyn die twice out of coconut white card using the inner cutting edge and backed it with Bluebell card.  I cut the Jocelyn again but this time I used Arctic Blue card with the outer decorative cutting edge and cut three of them.  I back two of them with a white backing and last one with a Bluebell card backing.  I used the last one for my focal element and added a thin decorative white frame using the two outer cutting edges from the Jocelyn set.  I attached all of the vertically working from the outside inward and mounting the single Jocelyn in the centre up using mounting foam.  I cut the All The Best sentiment in Bluebell and black and shadowed it, then added it to the actual shadow die which I cut in white.  I stacked it in the centre and attached the saying with foam.  The card was completed with white, Arctic Blue and Bluebell mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Absolutely love this card, the type I love to make, those colours together are amazing, thank you Sue...luv Ursula xx

Tressa said...

My immediate thought was that this was a rather busy card. However, on looking at it closely, I thought that the underlying embossed layer had a perfect matching pattern and that had it been plain, the card would not have had the same impact. I like it!
