For You

Hi bloggers!  It's time for the Garden Delight Frame to have a day on the blog I think!  I started with a piece of coconut white card and embossed it with the Brambled Rose embossing folder for texture.  Next I cut four of the Hexagonal Borders, two in white and two in black.  I used the black ones as a shadow behind the white ones and glued them diagonal across opposite corners of the background.  I cut the Garden Delight Frame twice, once in black and once in white.  Again, I used the black die cut as a shadow behind the white one and then glued them to the backing which was cut with the shadow outline die in the set.  I used the die several more times to cut the flowers out of various pieces of leftover pixie powdered pieces that I had in my stash.  I then cut around the individual flowers and added mounting foam to the backs and put them in place over the white die cut.  I used a green piece and added some of the foliage pieces as well.  I cut the For You Shadowed sentiment in black and glued it onto a white shadow background then attached it to the centre of the frame.  I completed the card with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Okay I need to keep reminding myself it's actually Wednesday today before someone reminds me again that I'm a day ahead lol although I've already got rubbish/trash ready for a Thursday collection !!! There is no hope lol.
What a gorgeous pretty sample this Wednesday to ease us gently into the day. I have this frame and I feel so guilty that I've not opened it yet but when I do all I can hope for is that I do it justice and something beautiful arrives out the other side. Whatever your day plans are Sue, hope it's a lovely day xxx

Hello Sue,

Your card is so lovely and reminds one of a pretty garden in spring, so fresh and bright. The black shadow really shows off the frame and the pixie powdered flowers add a delightful pop of color. Even the embossing folder shares in the floral delight.

Have a wonderful day.

Beverly.

stitchingranny said...

Such a pretty card. Love the white with just tiny splashes of colour from the flowers.

Hugs Helen xx


JUNE HORROCKS, Like you I always have a great big list but I hear so many people of our generation say "at my age there is nothing left to need". What boring lives they must lead. I am so glad we are crafters with so much to do and so many things still to need . xx

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Such a pretty card, almost white on white with a splash of colour, so classy. As I already have this die there is no reason why I shouldn't be able to create something similar.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Good Morning Sue and all
May I just say stunning card this morning and every detail on the card is stunning. I love the colours you have created on the flowers. I bought the Garden frame to create wedding cards to work along with the bride and groom.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, it is pouring with rain here today and it is so dark that I need lights on but then I look at your beautiful card and remind myself that Spring really is just around the corner. I love this die and the black shadow shows up the trellis so well. Love the pixied flowers too, I don't think I will ever use plain card again :-)

I am so glad that you used this particular die today. I was just using it last week and need a special birthday card for a friend. I was going to color the flowers however the idea of using Pixie Scraps and having them stand out as you have is so much better (naturally).
Have a wonderful day, Sue and everyone here,
