You Are So Sweet

Hi crafters!  I have a lovely soft Arctic Blue and white card to share today.  I started by cutting the Diagonal Background die out of vellum and gluing it to a piece of coconut white card.  Even though the vellum is closer in colour to the milk card, I decided the white would help it show up a bit better.  I made a multi layered frame for it using the Double Stitched Squares, using Arctic Blue on the bottom and a wider white frame on top.  I attached it over the background with mounting foam.  Next I cut two of the Camilla die in white and added an Arctic Blue backing to both of them.  I crossed them and added them to the centre of the card with mounting foam.  I stamped a sentiment and cut it out with a circle die.  I used the Blossom Patch dies to add three small arctic blue flowers around it.  The card was completed with white and Arctic Blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now Sue x

Morning from Lancashire Sue. Adorable soft delicate and soothing. If a card be all of these plus relaxing then this is the one. It's amazing how craft projects can use the same dies but go from this to all the shades under the colour spectrum to express different feelings for every occasion. But for today I'm in love with such a stunning beautiful soothing sample xxx

Hi Sue
I do love the Diagonal Background Die. So pretty cut in vellum. The itty bitty flowers from the Blossom Patch die are ‘small and perfectly formed’ and are such a brilliant accent for so many cards.
Your choice of colours for this card are perfect. I really am loving the colour range in the feltmark card.
Thank you everyone for my Birthday Wishes. Had a lovely lazy day and was spoilt!
It is set to be the start of a few extremely hot few days today so wherever you are and whatever you are doing try and stay cool.
Happy Monday everyone x

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
This card is beautiful, and so gentle on the eye. By using frames it sets the whole thing off. Must do that, I keep forgetting..........
Hugs, Rose

By the way blogger would not allow me to leave a comment on your post a couple of days ago,the garden frame, for which I just have a recipient who would love it.

Hi Sue. Love the use of the vellum on today's card which just goes to show that you can make a really pretty background without being too busy. I also love the way you have filled the card by extending the die.
