Happy Anniverrsary

Hi crafters!  I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Rainbow Hearts 3D embossing folder. I cut the Tulip Flower Square in white and glued it to a piece of acetate.  I used the Rose Quartz crystal tint to fill in the tulip and the Green Emerald crystal tint to fill in the leaves and stem.  I did two coats then allowed it to dry and cut one more tulip square and glued it over the top to hide any marks left on the die cut.  I cut a backing square covered with a sticky adhesive piece and added Iced Flake to it.  I glued the Tulip Flower Square to the top of it.  I added a black shadow square then added it with foam in the upper corner of the background.  I cut the Happy Anniversary in black and added it to a white shadow, then glued it in the lower corner.  White and black mats and layers were added to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are
6 1/2" x  7" in size.

Don't forget to check back later today for the list of winners from the April die release blog launch.  It should be online by late afternoon.  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue what a beautiful card, the hearts embossing folder is such a fab design and makes a perfect background for the tulip die cut. Have a good day everyone. Bx

Hi Sue. A lovely colourful start to a winter's morning in May ! Tulips are one of my favourite spring flowers but don't last long which is such a shame, unlike this tulip for life. This is one die hidden in a box of chocolates at Easter, my craft knife has been used to sneakily to break the cellophane at the opening where the box opened, the plastic layer of chocs removed and square flower dies added then the chocolate layer placed back and snippits of cellotape covered where the cellophane had been carefully opened, talk about crafty, I'm sure he'd make an excellent spy lol. So I'm looking forward to trying all the lovely ways you've shown us to make the prettiest of cards to add a smile to someone's day. I hope today is a better day for you Sue and that those lingering bugs are moving out one by one. Sending hugs xxx

Good Morning Sue. A beautiful card today Sue. I love the flower dies. The tulip looks so real. And I love the neatness of the embossing folder. It looks like the weather is the same across the country today...cold ... wet...windy according to our wilsonette family...but I am sure this little tulip has brought some sunshine into someone's day. It has mine. Thankyou Sue. I hope you are
Feeling better Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds. Ohh and good luck to everyone for the winners draw this afternoon.

Hi Sue
Lovely bright and cheerful card for a very wet morning here in West Sussex.
I am not complaining about the rain, however, as we badly need it as the ground is so dry.
Love the embossing folder, too!

Hi Sue,
what a lovely card, and in my colours. That red is gorgeous. And matting in black just brings the whole lot out, if you know what I mean.

Are you feeling a bit better now?

Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

I love everything about this card. The clean look with lots of white and the embossing folder. The star of the show though is the tulip flower square filled in with crystal tints and placed on top of iced flake. Just gorgeous. I love how it glistens and sparkles. Great card.

Love Helen xxx
