Sending Hugs


Hi crafters!  Today's card is what I call a modified petticoat card. If it were a full petticoat card. the borders would have been cut out and mounted slightly over lapping each other instead of cut into the card. I started with a piece of wisteria card (I know it looks grey but it isn't!)  I used the Matilda decorative die without the outer cutting edge to cut into the card in three rows at the bottom of the card.  I backed it with Iris card, leaving out the middle die cut for simplicity.  I cut the Vivian die in white and used the outer dies to add a thin frame in Iris card. I cut the centre of the Vivian die in Iris and stacked it in the centre of the die cut with foam.  I used the Sending Hugs sentiment and cut it in black and added a white shadow, then attached it to the centre of the die cut with foam.  I added a single floral accent by cutting the top layer of the Wildflower Triple Layering die in white twice and offsetting them.  I added an iris centre and seated it on a satin bow.  I added white pearl accents to the centres of all the flowers.  The card was completed with white, wisteria and iris mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  9 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Steph Cotterill said...

Hi Sue. Another beautiful idea and sample to show this collection of dies, the first thing that came to mind was paper pad, don't laugh but I still have EVERY single sheet of your paper pad lol if I had these dies and could part with a sheet or 2 of your paper design (which I couldn't ) but I have others how effective would that look? Would it look effective? Anyway it's really pretty your way, and whatever your plans for the day hope it's really lovely xxx

Hello Sue, a very pretty and very feminine card, love it. Have a good day all. Bx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, how beautiful this sample looks, the idea of the 3 cut outs at the bottom looks really good, it is times like this when I wished I had 3 sets of the same die and could then run it through my machine and emboss it at the same time, but I will try this out. Yes Sue perfect card yet again. I will let you into a little secret, when I log in every morning on my computer, your blog is the first thing I go to, I must have my daily Sue fix, ha ha.

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

Good morning Sue,
A very pretty card. Matilda looks beautiful cut into the card and your example shows how you can alter the size of the card depending on the number of repeats used. Thank you for the inspiration. X

Good morning Sue and all.
A beautiful start to the day and a reason to get up in the morning. Today I fell in love with that elusive Wisteria cardstock once again. I will try once more
on-line and see what comes up.
Everything about this card is so lovely and has already been said "It's a true Sue Wilson card"
Thank you for the daily inspiration.
Hugs.

karenlotty said...

What a clever idea I love the idea of a modified petticoat I will definitely be trying this out - maybe with old Spellbinder border dies ...

Ann Topp said...

Good Morning Sue. Ohhh how different. Love it Sue. And I will try this out....but...forgive me...I can't see how it's called a petticoat look. May be someone who knows will explain it. Or am I being a little bit thick this morning. Any way it's a beautiful card...as always. Thankyou Sue.
JUNE SMITH your secret is the same as mine. I love my daily Party craft fix. Every morning...first thing...with my lovely cup of tea. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love wisteria and iris together and Vivian looks gorgeous at any time but I know I am very much a minority of one when I say that this card does not grab me the way your cards usually do.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. What a good idea to use the Matilda die to create a faux petticoat effect. I am thinking that it might be nice to use this die with white on white to make an interesting background. Love the colours you have chosen.

Jackie Durrant said...

Scottydog said...

Beautiful colour for a beautiful card. I thought at first that each daisy had been cut individually!! It gives a completely different look cut into the card. I really must think outside the box more! Thank you Sue for your inspiration.

I really like this card. I do like Matilda just cut into the card stock in this way. I might like to use her "hugging" a center focal in this way also. I love the color that I see on my computer at least.Pretty.
