Hip Hip Hooray

Hi there my crafty friends!  For today's card, I made a piece of "caught in crystal" for the background using Blue, Green and Red Quartz crystal tints on to acetate.  I added some scrunched up white tissue paper to the back and allowed it to dry.  I cut the Dotty Scallop Celebration Background in white and glued it over the top.  I used the Double Stitched Squares to add a multi layered white frame over the top and added it with mounting foam.  I cut a white Double Stitched Rectangle and a slightly larger black one and added it to the centre with foam.  I used the Hip Hip Hooray sentiment cut out of Cobalt blue and added a black shadow behind it then glued it to the white rectangle.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7" x  7" in size.    All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue.
Thank you I love the way this sort of card lets us use some of
the papers we are not keen on. Once again the brilliant dies
do all the talking.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, another beautiful sample today, the background colours really does compliment this die, looks amazing and it is one of those cards that can be used for any occasion by just adding a different sentiment, good idea to make a few up for those last minute cards.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hello Sue,

Your card is stunning in its simplicity. The Dotty Scallop Celebration Background makes a statement all on its own. But combine it with a beautiful backing and a lovely sentiment and it's just perfect.

Have a wonderful day.
