For You Border Card



Hi bloggers!  Here's a card for you that utilises a leftover piece from the aperture cut from another card!  Waste not, want not as they say!










 The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x 8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. The first thing that strikes me is the colour and how it makes everything stand out beautifully it's so eye catching. I can't begin to tell you how many storage boxes or A4 cello bags I have full of fall out pieces from frames etc, I think it now takes over the full packets of cardstock I have colour coded ready to use stores in my book case shelf lol. Will look forward to watching your tutorial a little later. Whatever your plan's for the day enjoy xxx

Get well soon. Fab card, love your video. Love how you glued the 2 black borders and how you use 2 main dies to make the black edge. Hugs SNOOPY DOG 2. xxx

Wow!! Great use of the leftover! LOVE the colours combo and the borders, too! It's an amazing card, so inspiring!!

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card, teal and black go so well together. I have narrowed the Hexagonal border as shown and it really works well to give a different look.
So sorry to see that you are poorly and hope that you feel better very soon. I will miss seeing you on Monday but I am sure Julia will do you proud.

Oh I do like this, your ideas always give me so much inspiration Sue, thank you....I too prefer the lettering in the teal, shows up better....luv Ursula xx

Deb E Isle of Wight said...

Again love it. Has a masculine feel about it I think because of the colours particularly the teal which is gorgeous.

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
I hope you feel better soon. This is a standout card I don't use my border dies nearly enough so must get them out.

Really love the colors that you chose to work with Sue. The die border die sets off the card. I like the teal with the white shadow for the sentiment.

Gorgeous card and such a striking colour. X

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Nice to see the return of the lovely teal card. What a good idea to use the border die central panel to tie in with the teal borders (I do realise it is a waste piece from another card)
