Get Well

Good Sunday morning all!  Here's a simple Pixie Sparkle card for you today.  I started with a piece of white card and sprinkled Beyond Blue Pixie Sparkles all over the card.  Once dry, I cut the Charming Lace Trim die in white and glued them to the sides of the background.  I used the centre of the Maldives die and cut an aperture in the middle of the card.  I added mounting foam to the back of the background then attached it to a piece of white card.  I cut the Maldives die in white using the outer portion around the outside of the aperture, then gluing the centre to the leftover piece from the aperture, and recessing it into the centre.  I cut the Get Well sentiment from a leftover piece of the background, then shadowed it with a black die cut and glued it to the middle of the aperture.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now,. Sue x

Oh Sue you've given us another absolute beauty. The mix of sparkles are so pretty, the perfect background to show the delicate lace trim and Maldives dies, both dies are really really pretty. It's not often I can say this but I have both dies, well including the sentiment plus various shades of blue pixies so this is one for the future if you have no objection. A beautiful peaceful way to start my Sunday thank you Sue. Enjoy your day, be happy keep caring xxx said...

Morning Sue.
Thank you, I have just took out my lace trim die to use today.

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, what a charming creation today, with the colours behind which I suspect is how the Maldives would look and to use the Maldives die to central the sentiment and the lace edges, genius, love it.

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

Good morning Sue
Today’s card is in my favourite colours so it’s going to be a winner in my eyes! I love the dies you’ve used, yesterday I was sorting my dies out and came across so many beautiful dies I haven’t used for ages. I have your first set of dies (remember those?) out ready to use after work today.

Good Mornings Sue. Ohhh Sue what a lovely card today. I love the law from On the sides. I have this die and I use it a lot. I nip it and trim it to fit many things that need just a little fancy edge and it never let's me down. The colours on your background are beautiful as always. Thankyou Sue.Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.


Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

A truly beautiful card. Yvonne xx

Love the card.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Love the colours of the background on the card today. However, for me, there is a bit too much background and the die cut elements get a bit lost on such a large space, so if I were to make something similar, I would probably make to card a bit smaller.


BridgetCG said...

Morning Sue, simple but so creative and lovely, love the background with the cutout element. Take care and stay safe everyone. Bx
