Sending Hugs

Hi bloggers!  I started by cutting the Wrapped Pearl Frame in custard.  I used the outer cutting die to cut a shadow in white.  I glued the frame and shadow on to a piece of black card.  I cut the Sending Hugs sentiment out f white and custard card.  I glued the white "Sending" and the custard "Hugs" with a white shadow into the top left corner of the frame.  I cut a Wordie phrase that said I Love You So Much and matted it with custard card and seated it in the lower right corner with mounting foam.  I used the Layered Pierced Flowers and cut two in white, added a custard outline to them and a black centre.  I seated them in the upper right corner as accents.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, yes black yellow and white go really well together, this sample looks amazing, they are colours I rarely think about combining, well you have opened my eyes. I am going to make this one.

HI Sue, love the dies but not sure on the post. I am a black fan but was thinking I'd possibly use grey instead but that's just me. Can still see how this will appeal though..

lindyloo12Somerset said...

What a distinctive card, I love the colours you have put together, and the dies used.

Pawprintx4 said...

I didn't recognize the die used. How clever. A gorgeous card showing the versatility of the die.

Happy New Year!

A beautiful design and color combination. I am using black here and there, but I can't see myself making a card with an all black background, but that's just me. Thanks for the inspiration, Sue.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.

What a lovely card - and a terrific sentiment. We need to send more ‘just because’ type cards, letting people know how special they are. Thanks Sue x
