Just For You


Hi crafters!  I started today's card by selecting a piece of aqua card as my background.  I cut the outer die from the Lesley die set in white, then nipped it into four corners and glued them to the aqua card.  Next I cut a wide circular frame out of coconut white card using the Double Stitched Circles.  I added mounting foam to most of it, leaving a small area open. I cut the Melissa die in Aqua, Ocean and Black card for the three layers.  I assembled it then added it so it was underneath the edge of the frame without the foam mounting tape.  I added a white circular base for it then added the frame to the centre of the card.  I cut the Just For You sentiment in both Ocean and black.  I nipped the words apart then shadowed them with the black card.  I glued them in the open area on the frame.  The card was completed with white, aqua and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue. Stunning is what I say. I love every thing about it. And you have used one of my favourite sentiments. I bought this thinking will I use this...as we do...and then it sits there unopened till you have forgotten about it...I have done this many times ...is it just me. Have I used it??? Loads of times... I simply love it as I said earlier....I have used it as one piece..I have cropped it and used it separately. I just love it. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Especially Jean this morning. Good Luck. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Love it! Tucking Melissa partly behind the circles seems to draw more attention to it, very cute indeed.
