For You

Hello crafters!  I selected teal, white and black for today's card.  I started by cutting one of the Decorative Borders in white eight times.  I glued them on to the teal card in sets of two facing each other.  I matted the piece in black.  I cut two of the Pierced Summer Blossoms in teal and added black centres.  I seated them on the left edge of the card and added white leaves as accents.  I cut the Decorative Flag die in white and attached it across from the flowers in the centre of the card.  I cut the For You sentiment in black and glued it to the flag die.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue.
It feels like ages since we've seen your pierced flowers and even longer for the decorative border but it's lovely inspiration, and teal is a beautiful shade.
Hope everyone feels OK at the moment. Sending love to all that comment today xxx

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, how beautiful the teal and white border die go together with the backdrop for the pierced blossom flower, very beautiful.

Thank you to everyone who has wished me well on here, I feel much better today, still got a hacking cough but really much better.

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

Hi Sue
Happy Thursday everyone x
Beautiful background and I love the teal colour. There must be so many different backgrounds that can be created from your
Decorative Border Dies. Endless possibilities - I do love versatility! I wasn’t around during the launch when we were introduced to these and your Pierced Summer Blossoms but I definitely have my eye on them x
Take care everyone x
Sending positive thoughts to all x

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card. I love teal and white and the Decorative Border makes a brilliant background. The Pierced Summer Blossoms are lovely.

June Smith - glad things are improving for you.

Hi Sue. It's so nice to see the teal card making an appearance again, it is one of my favourite colours. I wouldn't have thought of using the border dies in this way, I would usually only think of using them as a border. Thank you for showing us how they can be used in a different way.
