Just A Note To Say I'm Thinking Of You

Hello bloggers!  I selected a piece of  powder pink card to use as the background.  I cut the Scalloped End Rectangles into six small frames and glued them down the two sides of the card.  I cut a multi-layered frame using the Double Stitched Circles and added a wider white base and a thinner old rose card frame on top.  I added a white backing behind it then added it to the centre of the card with mounting foam.   I cut the Just A Note sentiment duos out of old rose card and added a black shaodw behind them.  I glued both sentments into the centre of the frame.  Using the French Marigolds, I made three flowers, inked the edges with Victorian Velvet and added them to the bottom of the frame.  I added white leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white, old rose and powder pink mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh how pretty this salmon pink and white card is, loving the frames on here and the sentiment, which is so appropriate at these precarious times we are living in at the moment, but the marigold flowers look stunning, the middle one looks like a rose with the tiny bud, love it.

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

Good morning Sue
Today’s card is beautiful from the colour combination to the dies used. It was you that first showed me how to make the rose bud a long time ago, I still make them today and they always look so pretty.
I received my prize yesterday thank you so much!

Morning Sue - another stunning card packed full of useful ideas. I love how the rectangle dies have been used as decoration rather than frames - so clever - and the marigolds are gorgeous - I love the budded one in the centre! Colleen x

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. What a really good idea to use the frames to make a border and I love the marigolds especially the one made into a rose shape.
