All The Best

Hi crafters!  I started with a piece of
coconut white card and used the Anna die to cut into the background.  I used the top layer die to cut into the upper right and lower left corners.  There is considerable over cut in the middle where they over lap, in case you decide to make this one.  I used the inside smaller die from the Anna set to cut into the opposite corners so the background was completely die cut.  I cut a self adhesive sticky sheet and attached it to another piece of coconut white card then placed my background over it and added Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz to the exposed adhesive areas for a bit of blink to the background.  I cut one more of the top layer of the Anna die in white.  From my pile of acetate backed crystal tint backgrounds using the caught in crystal technique, I found one done in green, blue and purple and die cut the outer Anna shape then added it to the die cut.  I added foam to the back and seated it on the background in a diamond orientation.  I had a small piece left so I die cut the All The Best sentiment out of it, then added a black shadow and added it to the white shadow backing.  I cut a Double Stitched Circle to add it to then glued it into the centre of the Anna die.  White on white mats and layers were used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, wow what a beauty this is, the crystal technique really does steal the show for me, it is gorgeous, I must try this, yes I know it is on my long list of things to do, I suspect I am like a lot of crafter's having a list like this.

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

Oh my goodness Sue you never fail to wake me up of a morning with the wide eyed wow look. The sample alone shows how pretty it is but your close up photos show how intense the sparkle must be in real life. Another amazing reason to wake up of a morning. Hope your day starts as amazing as you start ours xxx

Hello Sue, very pretty and all from one die. I often wonder if when you design a die you have a finished idea of a card in your mind. Or,if you just go with flow Xx
