So Glad We're Friends

Hi bloggers!  Here's an older card that I missed along the way.  I started with a piece of white card and I embossed it with the Rose Bed embossing folder.  I cut it diagonally and added it to another piece of white card.  Next I cut the Vivian die in black as a backing piece.  I went to my background craft stash and pulled out a piece of Pixie Powdered card using the Aubergine Dream, Plum Twist and Rich Gold Pixie Powders.  I cut the backing from the Vivian die and then cut the decorative part of the die in white and glued it together and added it to the black base piece.  Using a bit of extra card from the Pixie powdered card, I cover ed it in sticky adhesive sheet then cut the extra flower die from the Magnolia Corner.  I peeled the backing off of the flowers and coated them in Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz and assembled the flowers.  I glued three to opposite sides of the die and embellished them with Lace Edged Leaves.  I used the So Glad We're Friends sentiment cut in white and glued it to the centre.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x
7 1/4" in size.   All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. Such a pretty card and I'm so pleased you found it to share with us, it's absolutely beautiful from start to finish, and the sentiment is so meaningful, especially at this time when you worry and care about those you know and love and also those names you recognize so often, names you look for and worry about when you don't see them for a while, even 'virtual friendship' is so special so on that note ....
STAY SAFE KEEP CARING KEEP CRAFTING 💖 xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a beautiful creation, and it doesn't matter that it is an old die set, it is so good to be reminded of these as I am sure that many others like me have loads of dies and stamps that we have forgotten about, which is why it is so nice to get a reminder, could do with more of these please Sue. xx

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

Good Morning Sue. Oh what a lovely card . I love this one. I love looking back on the older ones... it reminds us of what we have tucked away. And remember... all those beautiful bows
Wouldn't that be a good idea... Instead of video Saturday... which I really miss... To have a GOLDEN OLDIE DAY. where a day is allocated each week to one or maybe two of your beautiful cards. Just a thought. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them this morning. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.
PLEASE STAY SAFE EVERYONE 🙏 🙏 🙏

Such a beautiful card! Old dies are still as lovely as when they were new but I suppose we all tend to forget about them. Time to look through the Many hundreds of die sets!

Pauline Austen said...

Good Afternoon Sue,
I thought that I recognised these dies so I went hunting among my stash of dies and lo and behold I have them, so I'm a happy bunny.
However, the pixie powders which you've used are not among them. Beautiful colours, so will put them on my wish list.
Thank you for a pretty card. Hugs xxx Pauline

Lovely card. I like that you have embossed card and then added it to your card at an angle. Love the colours and the flowers, and of course the die.

Love Helen xxx
