To A Dear Friend

Hello crafters!  I started by cutting the Ring Quilt twice in white and once in Ocean card.  I extend all of them to create a rectangle shape rather than a square.  I glued the Ocean die down first to a piece of aqua card.  Next I offset the white one and glued it down over the Ocean card die and off set the other white one and glued it down creating an interesting pattern.  I put pearls in the corners as accents.  I added mounting foam to raise it and added it over another piece of card that I used double sided tape all the way around the edges.  I used Ice Blue Polished Silk glitter to create a bold border.  I cut the Dear Friend sentiment in Ocean card and black card, using the black as an offset shadow.  I glued them to a small rectangle and added it to the centre of the card.  I added a small flower in aqua to the corner of the sentiment.  The card was completed with white, aqua and ocean mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 3/4" in size.   

We are still missing a few people that need to claim their winning die.  If you saw your name on the list and haven't gotten a confirmation email back from me, please contact me at americansue1@gmail.com so I can post your die set out to you!  All for now Sue x

What a lovely way to start a new day. I couldn't imagine how these dies would look at launch Sue but the samples you inspire us with plus all the cards I've seen made by fb members are stunning and I mean stunning way beyond my talent. This collection was a genius idea and you can see how much pleasure they give everyone. Whatever you're up to this Wednesday I hope it's a great day xxx

Hi Sue - another beautiful card and I especially like the way you have done the background - such a clever idea and so unusual. I really like the cards which only need a sentiment to finish them off, they are very stylish cards. Sending best wishes
