Thinking Of You

 Hello there my crafty friends!  I was having a play with the lovey Pearlescent Watercolour inks to create today's background and frame.  I used Jade Sparkle and Turquoise Cascade Pearlescent watercolour inks all over a piece of white card.  Next I cut the Slimline Stitched Oval Aperture Trio out of white card.  I added it over the background piece.  I used the leftover watercoloured card to cut a frame using the Stitched Rectangle Frames.  I added the frame with mounting foam.  I used the Olive Branch die cut in white and added it to the upper and lower apertures.  I cut some small flowers out of the watrcoloured card and added them to the branches.  I used the Thinking Of You Stacked sentiment cut in white and added a black shadow to it, then added it to the centre aperture.  The card was completed with simple white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 4 3/4"  x  9"  in size.   All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue. Simply lovely. You can never give us enough slimline cards. Well not in my opinion anyway. And whenever you do give them ... you always make them look different to any other. This is what I love about your cards. Same elements ... different finished results.
Thankyou Sue Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.


Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds

Hi Sue, love those pearlescent inks as they are not too brash. You can just make out the pearlescence in the picture of the sentiment. I can't wait for craft shows to start opening so that we can see all the different effects in real life.

Hi Sue, I love this beautiful card. My slimline dies have had many a work-out and I am always pleased with the results. I will shortly be using them for some C*******s cards although it is hard to think about them in this heat :-)
Take care, everyone.

Hi Sue
A great big happy Wednesday to everyone x
Not only is this a slimline card which is my favourite but those colours are absolutely divine. The pearlescent watercolour inks are beautiful x
Your aperture dies are the perfect partners for so many of the dies which I have in my collection x
How is everyone finding this hot weather? Hate to be a killjoy but I’m struggling - it’s too hot 🥵
