For Someone Special

Good Sunday morning all!  I embossed a piece of white card with the Quilted Pillow embossing folder.  Next I used the Double Stitched Ovals and cut a wide frame out of wisteria card.  I added mounting foam to the back of the frame to attach it to the background.   I used the Pansy Trio Stampcut die and inked it with a Black Archival ink pad and ran it through the die cutting machine.  I did this three times, then coloured all of them with Distress markers.  I used Shaded Lilac, Fossilised Amber and Crushed Olive.  I attached the flowers on opposite sides of the frame.  I added some glue to the flower centres then sprinkled Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz on them.  I cut the For Someone Special sentiment out of both wisteria card and black card.  I shadowed the sentiment then added it to the centre of the frame.  The card was completed with white, wisteria and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8"   in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
Happy Sunday everyone x
Your stampcuts dies are all on my wish/want/got to have list. I remember when the Wisteria colour card first came out (many years ago), and it was on every card I made. It is such a pretty colour and perfectly showcases the gorgeous shades you’ve used for your Pansy trio x

Good Morning Sue A true Sue Wilson Classic Card. Anyone can tell its one of yours Sue ... as soon as they see it. You have that EXTRA special touch that invisibly has your name on it. And yes the Embossing Folder must be a favourite with everyone. I use mine such a lot too. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds

Hi Sue - so simple but absolutely stunning! Thank you for all your inspiration - Colleen x

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and I love the colours and the colouring. I too am one of the many fans of the Quilted Pillow EF it really is a lovely background.


Lisbeth - if you put Creative Expressions Quilted Pillow Embossing Folder into your search engine you should get lots of results from e-bay and Amazon and quite a few craft shops. Alternatively use the product code EF3D-025. Good Luck.
