To A Dear Friend

Hi crafters!  I thought I would share a quick card I made using one of our newest embossing folders.  I selected a piece of white card and used the new Honeycomb Trellis embossing folder.  Next I made a multi-layered frame using the Clipped Corner Rectangles. I made a smaller white frame for the bottom and then I made a larger frame and inked through the dies while they were still in the dies so there is a pretty white lip on the upper frame.  I used Spun Sugar distress ink for that.  I added the frames with mounting foam over the embossed background.  Next I inked the Spring Roses and Daffodils Stampcut die in black and ran it through the machine to cut it.  I used Distress markers to colour it (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Crushed Olive and Forest Moss).  I added it with mounting foam to the left side of the frme.  I cut the To A Dear Friend sentiment in black and glued it to the centre of the frame.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning dear Sue.
Out of all your sentiments/expression dies this is one I used a lot for commissioned cards and it really pleased me that I could make someone's day by adding this from friend to friend and you have the option for something so simple and CAS to going really fru fru and that's what I adore about all your sentiment dies. This sample is so pretty, maybe I should pick myself up and get a couple of your folders for something new to have on standby as I have a florist shop that wants to browse a few of the 100's of cards I have stored from the last market I did in February before the world shut down.
Lots of luck for the craft fair tomorrow, I know what you mean, take some sentiments cut in a cello bag ready to stick if your customers ask, watch their face light up and you'll feel good too 😀
Love, health and happiness to all xxx

Morning Sue, I do like a "quick card" occasionally when time is of the essence, but it would still take me all day to make one like this.

Morning Sue and all. Another pretty card - I am really liking the new embossing folders! And such a clever idea to ink through the frame dies like that - it creates a gorgeous effect. Another idea to tuck away - thank you Sue! Colleen xx

Hi Sue. What a very pretty card today. I like the look of this embossing folder and the clipped corner frames. Such pretty colours too.


Helen Bell said...

Hi Sue

A beautiful card. Embossing always adds a touch of elegance. A nice bold sentiment too. Just lovely.

Trish my foot is much better now thanks. Unfortunately I have since walked into a door handle rushing to answer the door and I had an embarrassing fall in the city centre where I tripped on uneven pavement and fell into a shop front. (the bottom part not the glass window fortunately). It would be easier to say which parts of my body aren’t bruised at the moment. All my own fault, I’m just clumsy! I hope your foot is feeling less painful. x

Love Helen xxx

Hi Sue and everyone todays card is wonderfully fresh with its pastel colours and florals. The new embossing folder looks great, first time seeing this one anywhere.
I think this card would be a great one for any age and easily adapted by changing the colour of the frame and or a different image to suit anyone.
A real Sue masterpiece.
