special day

 
Sue Wilson had recently released some more exquisite dies to her range.
 
In her original design she describes this card as being front opening with a band around it.
 
I have made my own version with the entire design on the front using divided die cuts and base card.
The sentiment is on a strip across the front, slightly bowed so its not flat.
I added embossed detail using spellbinders grand squares, and some extra layering.

special day

 
this IS a special day!!
 
this is my first card showing Sue Wilson's new die releases - the new Gemini dies.
 
They are really clever and unique in that the outer 'edge' is split into two dies so that the shape can be cut out totally, or either edge.
 
here it is used using alternate sides of the same die.
 
In Sue's original design she used some stunning ribbon with a two-tone effect.  I used some silky crush ribbon spliced lengthways and ran a dark green alcohol pen along the edges of it.
 
I've been a bit absent from blogging -- I overdid the Xmas cards and got a bit fed up with it so I have had a little break!
 
Sue's new dies are absolutely stunning!!  I have ordered a few already and hopefully I will complete my [slightly obsessive] collection soon!
