You Are So Special

Hi bloggers!  I cut the Stitched Starburst Background in white and added an antique gold backing piece to it.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles and cut a black frame to go around it.  I used the You Are So Special Block Sentiment cut in gold.  I cut the die again in black and used the sentiment from it and paper pieced it into the gold block.  I cut the decorative backing die from the set in black and seated the sentiment in it in the centre of the frame.  Using the Pierced Summer Blossoms, I cut two flowers and glittered them with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz and attached them in the lower corner with white leaves as accents.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, oh this starburst and sentiment is brilliant with the gold, black and white, I have these and have made a few of them this year, I know I will be making more, and love that you can paper pierce them too.

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

Hi Sue and all that visit today, I hope those that have felt unwell lately have turned the corner and are starting to pick up a little.

Black and gold, a beautiful combination, I love using those colours for some classic CAS festive cards, layers, frames and your Seasons Greetings die, on a 7x7 simple but gorgeous so thank you. There's my favourite block sentiment die again, black, gold, white sparkle what more do you need.
Love to all, stay warm and safe everyone xxx said...

Hi Sue
Happy Thursday everyone x
Oh wow. This card has such an opulent look. The rich antique gold with black is always a winning combination and any of your block sentiments are the perfect focal point for such a wonderful creation. I think that the Stitched Starburst Background die has just pushed its way to the top of my wish list. It really is a stunner.
Take care one and all x
Sending you all positive thoughts x

Morning Sue. What a really lovely card today. I do like the background you have created using the stitched starburst die. I don't have this one so I will have to go in search of it and hopefully it is still available.
