Monday Card Giveaway...

Happy Monday,

Well its time for another giveaway and I thought one of you might like a card made with the current release of dies from Creative Expressions designed by Sue Wilson.

This card is again based on my favourite shades of blue and white, i just feel this combination is so classic!

I started by die cutting the 2 centre dies from the Oslo die set in coconut white card.  I then cut each of the other dies, using the matching frame die for the centre, alternating the colours.  I then stacked the layers together using foam tape and cut each subsequent layer with a wider border.


To add the sentiment I hand cut a banner in the blue and stamped the sentiment in black archival.  Next I die cut the largest flower form the camilla closed petal set in blue and added the open petal on top cut in white.  I simply glued the edge of the banner behind the card through the aperture and twisted it onto the front.  Finally I added the flower, with a pearl centre, for balance.

Ingredients:
Creative Expressions dies for Sue Wilson
Scandinavian - Olso
Camila Open & Closed petal sets
CE Sentiment stamp



To win this card just leave a comment and I will choose a winner.

Demo day!  - On saturday I will be demoing all day for Creative Expressions at Hi-Legj Garden Centre craft shop in Knutsford.  If you are around that area or fancy a visit pop in and say hello!  Click HERE for details on the venue

Enjoy...

Really think this card should fly across the pond and reside in my home in Canada. So enjoy waking up every morning and checking to see what creation you have posted to start my day. Thanks so much for sharing all your talents.

  36. You're right, those colours are classic and this card looks quite lovely. I did one myself recently in similar colours and someone said it looked wedgwood like :) I'm quite keen to buy some of Sue's dies, she has such lovely designs and they make awesome cards! Would be great to win a card from you as I've never won one yet :)

  38. Btw, John, where do you purchase coconut card from? I've been trying to find some milk, coconut, brown card but not sure where to buy from? Also, that's a lovely sentiment, what range is that from? And could I ask what would you recommend using to die-cut from, what gsm card I mean?
