Thinking Of You

Hi Crafters!  I started with the background for today's offering.  I embossed the Celtic Circle background into a piece of milk card for some texture.  I used the Double Stitched Squares and made a thin frame out of milk card and added it with foam.  For the focal element, I cut the Claire die in milk card.  I selected a piece of Midnight Blue pixie powdered card that I had in my stash and cut the backing out of it.  I made a thin frame using the outer cutting dies from the Claire.  I attached it to the background with glue, then offset the Claire die on top of it.  I cut the centre of the Eliza die out of milk card and added it to the centre with foam.  I cut the Thinking Of You sentiment out of a section of the pixie powdered card and glued it in the middle.  Using the Layered Carnation dies, I cut enough of them to make three layered flowers from the same pixie powdered background.  I layered up the flowers then seated them in opposite corners.  I added a thin satin ribbon and some leaves around them as accents.  I used milk card to add the final mats and layers.  the finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue,

I love the overall look of white with the midnight blue pixie powder accents. Whoever came up with the idea for pixie powders really came up with a winner. I love them. What I like most about the card though is the embossing that you did with the Celtic Circle background die. It's just beautiful.

Have a wonderful day.

<<< Runs off to pixie powder some more card >>>>> This is lovely. I adore midnight blue!

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Gorgeous - love the colour combo and the classic Sue touch of the flowers. The use of the die as an embossing folder works beautifully and is very effective.

Pussycats said...

Good Morning sue and all
what a stunning card this morning and straight away you know its a Sue Wilson card. I love how you have created a frame and how the dies and embossed background all work together. Just adding the one colour from Pixie powders really works so beautifully on the card.
Crafty hugs to all... Wendy
