Just For You

Hi bloggeers!  I started with a piece of white card and covered it with a sticky adheisve sheet.  Next I used Blissful Berry Aurora Flakes all over it.  I used a rubit scrubit piece to refine the flakes and remove the excess.  Next I embossed it with the Quilted Heart Embossing folder.  I cut the Delilah Edgers in white twice and then backed them with red.  I added foam to the back of them and attached them to the sides of the card.  Next I cut the Joanie die backing piece in white.  I cut the Joanie die using the simple cutting edge twice, once in white and once in black.  I off set the black behind the white one as a shadow then mounted them onto the Joanie backing piece.  I used a small piece of the Aurora Flake background to cut a small circle frame.  I stamped my sentiment on white card then covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet, peeled the backing then centred it under the circular frame.  I trimmed away the excess card, then sprinkled Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz over the sentiment and added it to the Joanie die.  I cut three small flowers using the Blossom Patch set and glued them to the bottom of the circular frame with pearls in their centres.  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. How much do I need these new Aura flakes, I feel like I'm looking deep into a raspberry crush sundae, I'd love to see them in the flesh, do they twinkle or a slight matt like gliding flakes I'm wondering either way the flakes and today's inspiration are absolutely lush.

Morning Sue, a card with a wow factor, these Aurora flakes look so very different to other types of gilding flakes. I really must invest in some. Take care and stay safe everyone. Bx

Hello Sue and all
What a lovely luscious card today on a cold, wet, windy winter day here on the coast. Reminds me of raspberries or watermelon. Loving seeing the older frames and tags too, they are such lovely dies.

Morning Sue,
Today's card is full of lushousness, if that's a proper descriptive word. It's summer in a card; raspberry sorbet, strawberry crush and cherryade.
