Sending Cheerful Wishes


Hello bloggers!  I started this card by cutting the Penelope die into a piece of milk card on both sides, slightly overlapping in the centre.  I then embossed it with the Pinpoint Checkerboard embossing folder for texture.  I used the outer dies on the Penelope to make two thin frames out of milk card which I glued into place around the edges.  Next I cut the Penelope die again but as a triple layered die using Old Rose as the top, Milk as the middle layer and Powder pink as the base.  I assembled it then seated it on a larger die using milk card and just the outer decorative cutting edge.  I used the Double Stitched Ovals to create a small multi layered frame.  I stamped my sentiment on milk card then cut it out using the Double Pierced Flags.  I added an Old Rose base to my multi layered frame and tucked the end on the flag under the edge and added it to the centre of the Penelope die.  I cut a double strip of cream pearls in half and added a row to the top and bottom edges of the card.  The card was completed with Milk and Old Rose card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  9 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful sample today, I am going to try this, but I will somehow make it smaller or not so wide, postage costs in the UK are horrendous nowadays.

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

Morning Sue. Two of the most wanted and loved - Old Rose and Powder Pink, both of which I'm waiting for CE Towers to get back into stock. My first thought was raspberry ripple ice cream with that smooth mix of lovely colours, put those together with your design and string of pearls and the end result is just gorgeous - thank you. Wish I had your talent. Enjoy your day whatever you're doing xx

Good Morning Sue and all
What a stunning card this morning and love the collection of colours you have picked which brings the design together. You can tell straight away this is a Sue wilson card showing of the dies and embossed background. The way you have used Penelope working with background looks amazing.
Crafty hugs to all, Wendy

Hello Sue and all
How pretty !!! Love the pinks even though I am a blue girl and you have used one of my old favourite embossing folders, it is such a great background for those difficult male cards too.
Wishing you all a happy holiday Monday

Hello Sue
I love the colours Stephanie is right they remind me of raspberry ripple ice cream but like June would have to shrink it down because I am hopeless at making envelopes

Ann Topp said...

Despite the complexity of this card, the choice of colours and the embossing folder make this a surprising delicate and beautiful example.

Hi Sue. Lovely card today although I am not sure I would die cut this design and use that particular embossing folder over it as it is a bit too busy for me - sorry.
