Hello Friend

 Hello crafters!  I cut the Ruffled Edge Christmas Frame die in black to use as the base for the card.  Next I cut the Swirly Scrolls Background in black.  I covered it with a piece of white vellum so you could see the design beneath it but it was subtle.  I cut the Hello Friend die out of both raspberry card and black card.  I shadowed the sentiment with the black die cut then added it to the shadow die cut from the set which I cut in white.  I added it to the card with mounting foam.  Using the Pierced Summer Blossoms die, I made two flowers cut from raspberry card and seated them in opposite corners and added white leaves to them.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 3/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

How lovely.
Again this is quite different but it's really really pleasing to the eye, I'm loving today's inspiration and although I don't make anywhere near the amount of samples/cards every day like you do Sue, but I never make two the same, so I appreciate how tiring it can be thinking of a different design to showcase your dies.
Still 10 more festive cards to think about, so I hope our 'mangles' don't take up to much electricity lol.
Hope everyone is OK, Trish was thinking of you after reading your post yesterday.
Love to all xxx

Hello Sue
This is a lovely card and the sentiment with the colours really standout. Steph I have to see a pain clinic and I have to have a spinal scan but when that will be I don't know. Take care everyone x

Even though some of the dies used have Christmas titles you would never know, showcasing the versatility of your creative products. WakeyL

This is a pretty card. I bought the ruffled die because it was not necessarily a Christmas card and its a gorgeous frame.
I hope Thursday is going well for all,

Hi Sue. What a very different style of card from you today. Love the idea of a black and white themed design and the pop of pink gives it a really modern feel.


Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I'm not too sure about this one. I do love raspberry and black though so maybe it will grow on me.

Crewe Trish - I hope you don't have to wait too long for your scan and that the pain clinic can help you meantime.

Good Evening Sue. This is another die that has to go on my list. Equally can be used for any gender, the dark browns and gold would be perfect for the men. It's a lovely card . Thankyou Sue.
Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds.
Please stay safe and well 🙏 everyone
