Grateful Circle

 Hello crafters!  I started this card by taping the Blast Mask to a piece of white card.  I used Mink Luna Paste through the mask then allowed it to dry thoroughly.  Using the Double Stitched Circles, I cut an outer circular frame out of the pattern.  I added mounting foam to raise the frame section, then glued the entire background on to another piece of white card, lining up the pieces.  I used the Mink Luna Paste on another piece of card and let it dry, then cut out the Grateful Circle from it as well as three butterflies from the Petite Butterfly die set.  I added a black shadow to the Grateful Circle die and glued it to a white backing piece.  I added mounting foam and seated it in the centre of the background.  I glued the three butterflies around it.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  7"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Happy Saturday sue and all that visit today.
What an unusual sample but an interesting one, I'm not sure if it's the nicest mask you've ever shown us but its definitely universal for any gender. The moon is full and bright hope your day is as lovely xxx

Not sure either if this really works but the theory there otherwise the concept good.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh how I like this very much, the luna paste (remember Ally Pally Sue) brings back so many memories for me and this sample tops them, how lovely the circles look make with this, then cut and and layered, yummy, with such a beautiful sentiment. Yes I like this very much.

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

Hello Sue such a striking card, a beautiful sentiment and I like the mask . I like what you've done with the mask, useful for many occasions and genders too. Xx

Hi Sue,
A very different card today. I don't have any of the pastes and I have not yet used any masks (although I do have some) I think I am afraid when it comes to colouring. I have enough pens to open a shop and most of them are still pristine..
I will come back and have another look later.
Thank you Sue.
Marie P.

karenlotty said...

This is different I like the idea of die cutting a piece from an original and adding it back

dj from kettering said...

Hi Sue, What a great way of using the blast mask with your circular dies. It gives real impact to the card.

Hi Sue,
the ideas you come up with leave me dumbfounded sometimes. This is one of then, would have never thought of that in a million years (well perhaps in a million even I,perhaps).
This card is stunning.

Hi Sue and everyone, im loving todays sample, its like the suns rays are coming out from the sentiment and carrying the butterflies along on the rays of light. I love the raised part too and silver and white cards just look so elegant.
Oh thank you so much for my lion die and stamp Sue, it was a wonderful surprise when I arrived home from work last night. Can't wait to have a play, and its my brother in laws birthday soon so I now know what his card will be. Take care all and hugs to anyone who needs one today Donna xx

zoemo said...

Fabulous, I love this mask it’s a unisex one for sure. I love the way the pattern is uninterrupted but has depth due to the raised circle. Great idea!

I tried dropping a hint the day after the draw had taken place and no sign that you'd realised your name had been drawn lol. I did congratulate you but I'll send a belated congrats too lol enjoy xx

BenteS said...

Great mask, makes a beautiful card :))

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a very nice card and the Mink Luna Paste is gorgeous. Love how you created the background, I had to look really closely as it gave the impression of more layers than it actually has.


Eunice Astle said...

Very interesting card Sue!

Sandra said...

This card is definitely different but I like the change and I especially like the sentiment. It’s such a strong sentiment and a great reminder too!
