For You

Good Sunday morning all!  I started this card by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Distressed Lines embossing folder.  Next I used the Frosted Sparkle Glitter Kiss and grouted the debossed areas of the card.  I allowed it to dry well.  Next I cut the Celtic Squares Background die in white.  I cut two strips of it to use as side borders.  I covered a couple of strips of white card with sticky adhesive sheets and peeled the backing off and coated them with Sunlight Speckle Gilding Flakes.  I glued the side borders to it then added them with foam to the sides of the background.  Next I cut the Elsa die in white and added it with foam to the centre of the card.  I cut a circle with a sticky adhesive sheet on it then used more of the Sunlight Speckle on it.  I added a decorative frame over the top of it from the centre of the Elsa die, then mounted it in the centre.  I used the For You sentiment in white and glued it in the middle.  I completed the card with white mats and a mat with a thin edge of the gilding flakes to match the card.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/4"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, what a stunning piece of inspiration, there's something about a white card that I just love with the pop of colour from the guilding flakes, it's just beautiful, I think it's the way the fresh white card shows how delicate your dies are. If it doesn't make sense blame it on the time 4paws got me up! Sending Sunday hugs xxx

Gilding flakes always give cards an extravagant and opulent look! I love how you have used the Celtic Background to create those borders - ingenious x

Another stunner Sue. White & gold is a lovely combination & I like the embossing folder which I’ve not seen before. Thank you Sue. Looks as if a lot of us will have plenty of crafting time if we are confined to home for 4 months!

Hi Sue. What a really delicate looking card today. Not sure how it comes across in real life but from the photographs it looks almost as if it has been decorated with vintage lace. How clever!
