Thank You

Hi crafters!  Another oldie but goodie!  I started with a piece of French Navy card and embossed it with the Art Deco Shells embossing folder.  I used Blue Teal Glitter Kiss over the top of it for a sparkly shine.  I create a multi layered frame using the Double Stitched Rectangles with a white base and a thin French Navy frame on top.  Next I cut the Ivy Garden circle in white and backed it in French Navy.  I cut the centre of the Sophia die in white and cut it in half and added the pieces to the top and bottom of the Ivy Garden circle.  I added it to the centre of the frame and then cut a blue circle for the base for the sentiment.  I used the Thank You mini expression cut in white several times and stacked for dimension.  I used the Passion Flower die set to make three flowers and added them in opposite corners of the frame as accents.  Leaves and a white satin bows were used to embellish them.  The card was completed with white and french navy card mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Oh WOW Sue, this is just gorgeous. Foundation's French navy is such a powerful but smart and classie colour, I use it quite a lot for male subject cards, but on others too as the main choice and for shadows it really is regal looking. And there's the gorgeous Ivy Garden again. I just love how you've put the whole design together from the start to the finishing touches. I'm hoping you've found many more of your samples that have not had their day on the blog because so far those you found have been adorable Sue just like the last of 2018. Sending lots of love this New Years Eve, as we pack up to hide away in the farm cottage to save our little dog from being terrified from all the fireworks that go onto the early hour's. Have a lovely day Sue whatever your plans xxx

Hello Sue,

What an elegant and sophisticated card for us today. I love the design and the color combination. I can just imagine the glitter kiss is spectacular as the photograph just doesn't do it justice.

Have a great day.

Good morning Sue and all Wilsonettes.
A beautiful card again Sue. I love this combination of colours and there are so many shades of blue that you use on your cards which I love.
We are almost at the end of another year and I'm looking forward to your daily delights in 2019.

Good Morning Sue and all
Such a stunning card this this morning and the French navy and white card gives expensive look to the design of the card. The hint of glitter kiss works beautifully on the embossed background and its lovely to see the Ivy circle again.
Crafty hugs and well wishes to all.. Wendy

Good Morning Sue. Beautiful card today Sue. And with a sentiment change you have just made my day. It is my daughter in laws birthday on the 4th January and guess what card I will be making for her. It won't be an exact copy as I don't have all the dies you have used..... but I have got lots of your other dies that will give a very similar effect. Thankyou Sue.
For any of our Wilsonettes and bloggers..... who can't be with us tomorrow I would like to Wish you all a very happy, healthy and wonderful crafty New Year. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Lisbeth said...

Hello Sue. What a very classy looking card which probably has something to do with the colours that you have used, and with the fact that it is not too fussy. Very stylish.


Pat L said...

Hi Sue

Love and hugs to everyone

Another wonderful card to remind us to pull out the favorites and make some gorgeous cards. We all need thank you cards after Christmas and wouldn't this card be a gift in itself?
Steph C, enjoy your time in the country. Glad your fur baby doesn't have to be terrified. My old guy is deaf now so nothing phases him.
Good wishes to all here,

I have been catching up this morning. Im sorry if some of my posts are very short. Arthritis in my fingers making typing difficult in this cold weather Sue. However though they are short I am sure you know how much I love your work.
Such a shame these didn't have a day in the sun as some beauties there.
