Heartfelt Thanks

Hello there my crafty friends!  It is time for a clean and simple card today.  Silver and shades of blue for this one, a really lovely combo I think!  I started with a piece of  antique silver card and used the Dotty Daisy embossing folder to add texture to it.  I cut a piece of coconut white card on the diagonal and added it to the bottom of the card.  Next I cut a strip using the Stitched Zigzag Borders out of Arctic Blue, Sky Blue and Bluebell card.  I glued them together tightly on to a larger piece of antique silver card.  I then used the same zigzag dies to cut them into a larger piece by butting the dies right up next to the card on either side.  This gave me a thin border on each side where the stitching came out onto the silver card before cutting it.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it and added it diagonally across the card.  I used the Spiral Pearl Flower to make a pretty vellum flower and added it at the top of the strip with two white leaves as accents.  On the top portion of the card, I cut the Camilla die in white and added it with foam.  I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the circle die from the centre of that die set.  I added it with foam to the middle of the Camilla die.   The card was completed with white, Bluebell and antique silver mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are        7 1/4" x  8 1/2" in size. 

Tomorrow is the launch for the September die release.  I am really pleased with the release and there are quite a few lovely and fresh new designs too!  I do hope you can join me here at 6am to kick it all off and, as usual, take part in the die giveaway!  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. I love that embossing folder what a pretty background and it's so nice to see your zig-zag border dies on this sample, we haven't seen that much of it since launch earlier in the tear. Talking of which, your new collection are really lovely with so many beautiful useful designs and sentiments, I'm really looking forward to both the launch and your visit to the U.K. sooo much to look forward to. Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us every day. Safe travels xxx said...

Looking forward to the launch tomorrow, it coincides with the start of the 5th Test at the Oval so I can see that for the next few days I will be dodging between your blog and the cricket blog - happy days.
