For You

Good Sunday morning all!  I
selected a piece from my background stash to use as the background for today's card.  I used the Pumpkin Patch Pixie Sparkle on it.  Using the Claire die, I cut an aperture in the middle of the card.  I added mounting foam to the back to raise it and I attached a piece of black card to the back.  Next I cut the outermost dies from the Claire set to create the thin frame and I glued it around the opening of the aperture.  I cut the Claire die into the fall away piece from the aperture, then recessed it down into the opening, allowing the black backing card to show through.  I cut two more of the Claire die, one in white and one in black.  I shadowed the black die cut with the white one, then cut it into four pieces.  I glued the four pieces into the corners and trimmed away the excess.  I cut the For You sentiment out of leftover Pixied card, then shadowed it in black.  I cut a small white frame using the Double Pierced Circles, then added a white backing to it and glued the sentiment into the centre.  I seated it in the centre of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/2"  x  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a lovely bright and colourful Pumpkin card this morning, it would certainly stand out on a display of cards. The dies are lovely and make brilliant corners.

Good Morning Sue. Wow this will make anyone wide awake. So very bright. And just what I need at the moment. A really good cheer up. And I love to see the older dies coming out. Not really sure about the colours today but Thank you for showing us. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds
Please stay safe and well 🙏

UPDATE .... I have had a phone call from the x-ray department.
They need to see me again for some reason next Thursday morning ... Which is rather worrying. Hoping it's nothing serious.

Hi Sue. Not too sure about this one today and I can't quite put my finger on why. I think it could possibly do with few flowers to add a bit of interest - sorry.

Scottydog said...

A very bright card today on this dull Sunday morning! Love to see the older dies being used again. Thank you sue.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I do like the vibrant colour of this card and it is amazing what you can do with just one main die set. I do feel that it needs a little something else but I have no idea what!
Ann T - hope it is good news on Thursday, fingers crossed.


Pauline Austen said...

Morning Sue, reminds me of Halloween!!and I do like the black (sexy), lacey corners. lol

Ann - they might just need to do another x-ray because the previous one didn't take very well! Chin up!!x

Hi Sue
A lovely bright card, I do wish I had bought the Claire die.

Ann, as Pauline says they might need to repeat the X-ray, fingers crossed

Love and hugs to everyone

Good Morning Everyone,
This card was a wake up for sure. I love orange and nice to see Claire doing her thing today.

PS. Ann, probably a repeat as everyone suggested. They have done to me and its disturbing.
