Thank You

 Good Sunday morning all!  I started this card by covering a piece of card with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing off and coated it with Sunlight Speckle Gilding Flakes.  I used a piece of Rubit Scrubit pad to refine and remove the excess flakes.  Next I used the Brambled Rose embossing folder to emboss the background.  I used a Black Soot Distress Oxide ink pad over the top of the embossed design to bring out the pattern.  I coated it with clear embossing powder and heated it until it melted, this keeps the black from coming off on your fingers.  Next I cut the backing die from the Eliza die out of a piece of card that I had coated with Silver Chrome Glitter Kiss.  I cut the Eliza again in white and added the decorative version on top of the silver backing.  I cut the centre out of it and added mounting foam then added it to the centre of the card.  I cut a Pierced Flag die out of white and attached it across the centre of the frame.  Using a bit of extra silver card, I cut the Thank You sentiment and the Striped Nasturtium outline dies.  I cut the flower base in white then attached the outline dies over the top and assembled the flower.  I seated the flower on the end of the flag and added a couple of leaves and Fern Fronds as accents.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  7"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Not too sure about the background today, but I do love the effect you have created with the Eliza die. Hope you have a Happy Mother's Day today (not sure if it is Mother's Day in the States today if you are out there, if not, have a great day anyway)

A lovely card with a striking background. I have never tried embossing my gilding flake backgrounds, so anotherone to try. Thank you Sue.

Suzzette Yandle said...

A stunning and luminous card design. All of the textures and steps you used to make this design came together in a positive reaction of loveliness. Great idea to heat emboss over the oxide ink to stop the rubbing off of the pigment. Thank you for sharing.

Jackie T said...

Hi Sue this is a stunning card. I love it. Take care. Hugs Jackie

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a really striking card and I love everything about it especially Eliza.

I hope the mums on here have enjoyed their Mothering Sunday even if they have been unable to see their children. I heard some families have been pretty ingenuous finding ways to see mum even if only through a window!
