Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card featuring some of Sue's new dies -

For the background, I used Sue's Classic Weaving Die with Cobalt and Perriwinkle Card. Sue has filmed a video on how to use the weaving dies and you can see it here.

I cut a frame out of Coconut White Card using the largest 3 dies in Sue's Classic Adorned Squares Noble Die Set.

I cut the outer die in Sue's Thank You Expressions Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I cut both the dies together out of Cobalt Card.

I cut a couple of flourishes out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Splendid Swirls Die Set. I tied a knot in a piece of White Tulle and trimmed it a little. I added a couple of Pearl Sprays and cut a couple of leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Cornflower Die Set. I made a flower out of Perriwinkle Card using the Cornflower Die Set and added a Small Circle Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Stand out card Julia!
    Love the blue,

  11. Hi Julia
    another beautiful card - thank you for your reply - I thought the die was a mat
    and not strips - I have the strips and thought a mat edge would be nice then you don't have to join it.

  12. These are clever dies I sort if dismissed them because I couldn't work out how they worked without a lot of faffing but will go off and watch video because they do look so effective I'm usually a cd-rom crafter using dies BUT really want to craft in other ways eg stamping, embossing etc Love the card

  13. Morning Julia,
    Such clever dies and you have made a lovely card with them, I have the cornflower die and its so pretty.

  14. Beautiful card Julia, this weaving die does give an excellent view point on a card, so decorative.

    Love & hugs
