Happy Birthday


Hi crafters!  Switching gears today to another lovely colour combo, Bluebell, Sky Blue and white.  I cut the middle die from the Lola die set into the sides of a piece of coconut white card with a piece of Sky Blue lined up behind it.  I removed the sky blue, then re-cut the top layer of the Lola die into the coconut white card.  I lined up the two pieces and glued them together then added a white backing behind it.  Next I cut the Vivian die in white and backed it with white card.  I used the outer decorative edges to add an edge of Bluebell to it  I added it horizontally with foam to my background.  I cut one more Lola die out of white, Bluebell and sky blue card and added it across the centre of the Vivian die.  I used the centre from the Vivian and cut it in Sky Blue and added a white backing to it.  I used the Happy Birthday shadowed sentiment cut in black with a white shadow for the sentiment and glued it to the smaller Vivian die and added both to the centre of the card.  I used a double strip of white pearls cut in half and added a row to the upper and lower edges of the background.  The card was completed with white, sky blue and bluebell mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are
6 1/2" x  9" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh I like this one, I have all of the dies you have used, in fact I purchase both of the shadowed Happy Birthday dies last Saturday, I thought it was a wonderful idea to have the shadow die for the background and it works perfectly, so I was so pleased about that. Love the colour choice too.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue
This is such a gorgeous card (as usual)!
I love the colours. There is something about blue - it looks so fresh. Trying to work out if I think Lola is the star of the show or Vivian!?! Difficult to say. They’re both fabulous x
Happy Thursday everyone

Hi Sue,

What a beautiful and elegant card today. The Bluebell card paired with the Sky Blue and Coconut White card is such a pretty combination. The die sets go so well together. The rows of pearls just add that touch of elegance.

Have a wonderful day.

Good morning Sue Fabulous card it's really pretty with the two different shades of blue and two beautiful triple dies I love the way you've used the Lola die

Marie P.from Longridge said...

Good morning Sue.
What a gorgeous card. The colours and design are wonderful. I do so wish that I had discovered you Sue when I first started to make cards. I think it was about 4 years ago at a workshop for the blind and low vision. Since then I have been hooked and have bought so many dies but don't have the names of many/most of them.
I look forward to the blog every day and thank you so much for the inspiration.
Hugs.

Hi Sue, a lovely, classy card and the bluebell card is so yummy. Love it all.
I can't believe that I have just opened an e-mail promoting your Christmas collection available in June - where has this year gone? it only seems 5 minutes since I was rushing to finish the last few cards for hand delivery before Christmas Day! I won't say anything about the new dies other than there are some stunners and I look forward to your release on the blog :-)

Hi Sue,
I'll have to read this one again. What you've done with the Lola is stunning. You are just so good at putting them all together, I must attempt to follow your example, especially with the triple dies.
It's a stunning card, Sue.
