Simple Sunday...

Happy Sunday,

Thanks for all the wonderful and supportive comments yesterday, I can now admit that i did send in some Cards for Sues shows on Create and Craft yesterday, however I didn't know if they would pass muster with her so I didn't know until I tuned in that they had been used.  There were actually three others of mine that were featured that haven been on the blog yet I wonder If anyone spotted them!?!

Back to today and its back to simple Sunday where I show a card or creation that is simpler than my usual fair, Today's is simple and hopefully easy to recreate however it is new technique that I have used on a couple of cards that you may see in October...

I simply started by making an A5 card by folding a piece of Milk coloured foundation card in half and die cutting the larger and centre oval dies from the Sue Wilson Innsbruck die set.  Next I simply threaded some of the CE ribbon in a two tone green through the apertures around the edge.  Finally I added a piece of Brunswick green behind the die cuts to make the filigree show.

All in all a very simple and quick card that could have any sentiment added and perhaps, like this one, be ready to have a sentiment added when a card is needed in a hurry!

  1. Love this card-could be used for so many occasions. Haven't had chance to watch any of Sues shows yet & am off into work again today so will have to record todays 3 programmes. Will look carefully for your cards.


  2. Very elegant card John and useful for all sorts of occasions. Wish I could go to Ally Pally or the NEC but sadly transport is an issue. Look forward to seeing you on C&C one day. Creative Expressions would be mad not to use your talents more fully.

  3. Eh up John
    Simple but pretty and understated. How excited were you yesterday lol! Well deserved!
    Have a great day.
