You're Special To Me

Hello all!  Today's card is all about the Lesley die!  I started with a piece of Old Rose card and cut the outer die from the Lesley set into it.  I backed it with white card.  I used the Double Stitched Squares to add a thin frame out of white card around it.  I used the Lesley outer die again and cut it into white card.  I backed it with white card and then used the inside cutting shape to cut an aperture in it.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it.  I cut the centre design intro a piece of Old Rose card and backed it with Old Rose card as well.  I added the aperture over it and then seated it in a diamond orientation over the background.  I stamped my sentiment then added a circular white frame over it cut from the Double Stitched Circles.  I added it to the centre of the card.  The card was completed with white and Old Rose card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  6 3/4" in size.

To answer yesterday's question, this might seem a bit odd, but the only continent that I haven't stepped foot on yet is Antarctica so that is where I would like to go (in their "summer" such as it is!) LOL  All for now,. Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful card to greet us this morning, with old rose being the wonderful colour choice.

You are such a well traveled person, I assume that Antarctica is on your bucket list.

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

Morning Sue, really love this card, looks so pretty with the old rose card! You have travelled well, but think Antartica would be a bit too cold and don’t think there would be many card makers living there! Lol love Jean xxx

Morning Sue.
Thank you another very pretty card.
Sue if you went to antarctic I wonder what inspiration you would have there.
So many different snowflakes.
I have to be warm Sue, I walked around the Eden Center's tropical house with my Aran cardigan on.

Good Morning Sue and all
A very beautiful card this morning and love the design you have create with Lesley. I have this die on my list love how you have even created the background using the same die.
The Antarctica would be a different place to go but a little cold for me. I wonder what designs you would create for dies from there.

As the saying goes "better later than never" logged in at 6 and not post ! Silly blogger (Blogger) not uploading your post when we expected it to be there ! Anyway your gorgeous inspiration is here so all is well ☺ I really need to catch up with all these new coloured cardstock such pretty shades to show the beauty of all your dies and designs that you put together, and this sample is stunning Sue.
Antarctica would be the end of my fingers and toes due to the intense cold lol so it's one of those stunning places that I will admire from the warmth of my home but I know that you will one day accomplish your dream but it may be rather hard to get ideas for die designs and shapes if it's as white and flat as I think it might be lol (geography never a good subject) lol.
Whatever your plans, enjoy your day xxx

Hi Sue
A beautiful card.
My friend Dee went to Antarctica in February this year and has the most amazing photos of penguins and icebergs, and hair-raising tales of getting on and off the ship onto zodiacs.

Hi Sue - the rose card is a beautiful colour and the card very unusual but very effective. I will see you in Antartica then Sue - I'd love to go to see the penguins, but like I said I would have to stop off at the Maldives afterwards to warm up! Sending best wishes

A lovely design. Unfortunately, the card colour used shows up as a murky brown on my iPad but I can imagine the reality.

Gorgeous card, my pc shows it like a brown colour, but I love it anyway. Wow you are well travelled. Good for you it's a small world and I want to see as much as I can, although being disabled its like a military op every time we go somewhere.6 weeks in after my hand ops and still cant hold a cup of tea,and still can't craft.

A wonderful example of your familar juxtaposition of die cuts as well as stepping up and stepping down of two or more die cuts to make your design aesthetically pleasing.
