All The Best

Hello there my crafty friends!  I started this card by embossing my background using the 3D Ribbon Swirls embossing folder. Next I cut the Vivian die in white and added a white backing to it.  I used Coral card to add a thin frame to the outside using the die's outer decorative cutting edges.  I cut the Vivian again out of white, but added a Soft Salmon card backing to it then cut it in half.  I mounted the halves coming horizontally from behind the original Vivian die cut.  I cut the centre of the Vivian die in white, added a soft salmon backing to it then layered it in the centre of the Vivian die.  I cut the All The Best sentiment in Coral and added a white shadow to it then glued it in the centre of the card.  Lastly, I cut the Wildflower triple Layered die out of Soft Salmon, Coral and white and assembled them, then arranged them cascading across the card diagonally.  I used white leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white, Soft Salmon and Coral mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 3/4" in size.

We still have a handful of unclaimed dies from the blog launch drawings.  Please scroll down to the post to see if your name is on the list and email me if you are!   All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a wonderful sample today, and I am so pleased I have those dies so I can try this one, love the colour combinations you have used, and your embossing folder is so crisp and sharp, perfect background.

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

Hi Sue I'm loving the background, sometimes you just need some texture that says "Hey look at how powerful I am" and they can really enhance the project you're working on, sometimes it just has to be plain with just the texture of the card to give a gentle feel to the card we're working on but this 3D folder works so well with the other dies. Some of these colours are getting hard to order as they're not branded by CE, I've had the 'new pinks' on order for weeks and the CE rep just can't get her hands on any!!
A new week and a beautiful sample to start it with, apart from some good boring laundry weather, what more do we need to start our day, pretty perfect if you ask me. Have a really lovely day xxx

Good Morning Sue. Not very good weather today.....it was exactly the same as this 52 years ago. I know because it was our wedding day. But... 52 years ago I didn't have Partycraft to brighten my day as I have this morning.
Beautiful card Sue and I just love this colour salmon. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Not colours that I would normally use, but one I might try after seeing this lovely sample. I also like the embossing folder, think another for the list! Thank you Sue.

Sorry to hear there won’t be a craft show at Ally Pally in September. Hope we get to see you at another show?

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Love the colours you have used on the card today and also the embossing folder, however, for me, it is a bit too busy as the pattern on the background is fighting with the pattern on the die cut - sorry.

Eunice Astle said...

Love the Vivian die Sue, but the card is too busy for my liking. The color choices are interesting.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card and the more I see of Vivian the more I want her. I really must rationalise my wish list there are just so many dies that I want. Love the coral and soft salmon card, both colours are gorgeous.

Ann T - Happy Anniversary!
