Especially For You

Hello crafters!  I started today's card by embossing a piece of white card with the new Coffee Bean Flower embossing folder.  Next I cut the Delilah Background out of soft salmon card.  I used the Delilah Edgers to cut away the two side areas.  I added a white card backing and added mounting foam to them.  I attached them to the sides of the embossed background.  Next I used the Double Stitched Ovals to make a multi-layered frame.  A wider white base frame and a thinner Soft Salmon frame were cut then added to the centre of the card with mounting foam.  I used the Especially For You sentiment and cut it out of soft salmon card and glued it in the centre of the frame.  Using the Cosmos Flowers, I cut multiples of them out of a piece of white card with a sticky adhesive sheet added to it,  I used Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz to each of the peatals before assembling them into flowers.  The flowers were attached to opposite sides of the oval and Magnolia Corner leaves were used as accents.  The card was completed with white and soft salmon mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. What a pretty beautiful sample you've given us this morning, afternoon or evening. I really must invest in some more embossing folders the newer one's we are seeing lately have so much depth and pretty designs, although there are times when everything needs to be plain with just one of the mini expression dies taking centre stage. I can remember using a sticky sheet with dies for the first time, there's no truer saying you learn lessons the hard way - oh boy what a mess lol.
On that sticky reminder I'll send love and hugs to all our family wherever you are and please....


Morning Sue.
A lovely card thank you.
Take care and keep safe Kitty.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I think there is something really pleasing about the oval shape and it is so nice that this is also reflected in the border dies. Love that embossing folder too.


Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue, I do like these style of cards. First time I've noticed this EF. Where have I been?
Would make a lovely anniversary card. I think that my 'need list ' has almost covered an A4 piece of paper!
Still, I'm saving on coffees out, and using it for more crafty stash. Just wish I'd drink more coffees in happier times lol.
Hugs xxx Pauline

A lovely card design with this 3D Embossing Folder, parts from the Delilah Background, and sparkly Cosmos Flowers framed with leaves from the Magnolia Corner. Your sentiment is perfectly accented with two oval frames cut from the Double Stitche Oval set. I like your Cosmos flowers with the multi layers of petals. The larger one reminds me of a zinnia. Thanks for sharing.
