Guess Who Thinks You're Special

Hello there my crafty friends!  I selected an aqua and white colour combo for today's offering.  I cut the Decorative Flags in white and did four of each design style except the square edged one, which I cut two of.  I added the decorative flags to a piece of aqua card and cut them to make differing lengths of each, then glued the cut ends to the centre of the card.  I cut one of the Joanie's Border die in white, cut it in the middle then and ran it down the centre of the flags from the top and bottom of the card, leaving a gap in the middle.  Next I cut a Double Stitched Circle and added mounting foam to it.  I embossed a piece of white card with the Rose Bed embossing folder and added the circle to it, then trimmed the excess away around the edge of the circle.  I seated the circle in the middle of the card, covering the gap in the borders.  I cut the Guess Who Thinks You're Special die in Ocean card and added a black shadow behind, then glued it into the circle.  Using the extra flowers from the Magnolia Corner die set, I made seven small flowers and clustered them on opposite sides of the circle.  I added the leaves from the Magnolia Corner as accents to the flowers.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

A gorgeous card Sue with a lot of work and far beyond my skill level. The sentiment is very appropriate as we all think YOU are special and the person this card was made for would have to be VERY SPECIAL too.
Have a great day.

Good Morning Sue. Ohhh this is great. What a brilliant idea to use the flags as a feature in the background. Only you could have done this Sue. Not only that but you have managed to create a beautiful card using very popular colours. Stunning work Sue. Thankyou. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them this morning. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

What a lovely card. You amaze me Sue with the way you come up with such unusual designs. I look at the flag dies & think sentiments but you look at them & think backgrounds! I wish I could think outside the box more! Thank you for all your inspiration Sue, it is much appreciated.

Suzzette Yandle said...

Beautiful. All elements came together so nicely. If you had not stated about cutting the flags and Joanie's border down the middle, one would never know because of how well you disguised the cuts. Thank you for sharing. Hugs
