Many Thanks

Hi crafters!  I started with a piece of pixie powdered background from my craft stash (I love to make up a bunch of them to have ready in a pinch!)  This one was created using Midnight Blue, Aqua Lagoon and Emerald Green Pixie powders.  I cut five of the Stella's Border  out of coconut white card and glued them vertically across the card.  I used the cutting edge die from the Stella die set to cut an aperture in the middle of the background.   I added mounting foam to the background to raise it and added it over a piece of white card.  I used the outer most decorative die with the plain cutting edge to add a thin decorative border around the aperture in white.  I cut the Stella die in white and recessed it down into the aperture opening.  I sat the Many Thanks sentiment on a white circle and a smaller pixie powder circle and added it to the middle of the card with foam.  Using some extra bit of the pixied card, I made a flower using the Ruffled Edge Flower die set and added it with white leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white on white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  6 3/4" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Hello Sue and all
Love the Stella border as a background and the pixie powders in those colours look fabulous. I really missed the potential of the Stella border when it was released and beginning to think it was a big miss. May have to remedy that !
Really lovely card Sue

Hi Sue from a cold dark Lancashire I really don't like these cold months so it's lovely to start the day with something so pretty, I do love the effects that pixie powders give peeping through the background and showing the delicate design of Stella's border. A beautiful way to start the day. Hope yours starts as beautiful but somewhat warmer xxx

Hi Sue, I agree with Steph above it's great to see something nice and bright on these cold and dark mornings. I'm a little addicted to pixie powders too at the moment and this card is stunning I love the white against the blue. And the thank you sentiment is just perfect. Thank you for cheering me up on this grotty morning x
