Thinking Of You

Hi crafters!  I started this card by cutting the Elsa die into a piece of coconut white card.  I moved the die along and extended it to create a larger background.  I backed it with  piece of Iris card.  Next I cut the Millie die in both white and black.  I offset he black and then added an Iris backing to it.  I used the outer cutting edges and cut a thin black frame that I glued onto the edge of the Millie die.  I cut the centre of the Millie die in white and added a white backing too it.  I cut the Thinking of you in Iris card and added an offset black die cut to it before gluing it to a white shadow backing.  I seated it in the centre in a stacked orientation with foam.  I cut the Hummingbird in Iris for the top layer, black for the middle layer and a white base.  I assembled it and added it to the side of the focal element.  The card was completed with white, black and Iris mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  8 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue hope those bugs are on their way out and you're starting to feel more human.
At first look I thought the background was made with a stencil until I read your method, such a pretty sample and the gorgeous Millie die holds the most gorgeous pattern. I couldn't think of a nicer way to start the day, thank you xxx

Good morning Sue and all Wilsonettes,
What a beautiful card to start the day off with. I love the Hummingbird, I frequently watched them from my window when I lived in Canada and seeing them presented so cleverly on a card starts the nostalgia off again. I have the die and may well use it when I get back to my card-making
Hugs.

Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue, it is a beautiful humming bird that you have given us today and I love the way in which you have been extending some of your dies to make a much grander background. Julia demonstrated how, on your show earlier this week, so I must have another go. Fingers crossed for success.
Finally, many THANKS for picking my name for the sentiment die which will be so, so useful. Your generosity knows no bounds. Take care. H ugss xx Pauline

A beautiful card Sue, that for some reason reminds me of the lovely old willow pattern plates.
Something so fresh looking about this one.

This blue and white card reminds me of the wonderful trip and the Delftware I saw in the Netherlands from a recent trip. I also got to see those lovely tulips, too - by air and land. So pleased they were still blooming. Great memories for me.
