New York II...

Happy Tuesday,

Here is the second instalment of my playing with Sue's new New York die set. This time I have simply die cut all the elements in the Union Square die set in Khaki and again in Grey foundation card.  AS with the previous card in the New York range I simply foam mounted each piece in alternate colours to make the focal element.

For the front I die cut the centre wreath like piece once in grey and twice in khaki. I simply then offset these and wrapped the piece together (the picture shows what I mean more on this than words can) and foam mounted this on the top.







To make the remainder of the card I ran a piece of the Khaki through the Art Deco A4 embossing folder  and mounted this onto a larger, hand cut, square of the grey.  I then made a large 21 x 21cm card blank in layers of the two colours and ran a piece of the Creative Expressions Solid Satin centre ribbon in pewter.

To complete the design I made a double bow and added this to the side at the front.


Ingredients:
Sue Wilson's New York Union Square die set
Creative Expressions A4 embossing folder Art Deco
Solid Satin Centre ribbon, Pewter
Khaki & Grey foundation Card.




Enjoy...

  3. Hi John. Beautiful, and I am getting the lovely soft khaki colour on two of the photos today : ) (the middle photo shows it as white. Both combinations are beautiful anyway and we almost get a two for one so it's not a bad thing). I love these New York dies and especially how you have linked the middle ones together. I hope you have a good day, stay warm! Take care.

  13. Hi John,
    I love this card - shows up as sort of dusky lilac on my monitor but that is lovely as well. How clever, this "wrapping together" of the dies which are beautiful, as are all of Sue's.

  19. I love the look of your card (and most of the ones you share) but I wonder if one time you could take a photo 'before bow' and then continue to add one as desired. I'm famous on Sue's blog for not liking bows and I'm starting to look at yours the same way .... "I suspect it'd be great without the bow" I'm saying to myself! I now I'm in the minority but so be it :) Hmmm, is it in your contract somewhere??? 'All cards *must* include an enormous bow'!

  21. Love the card the embossing folder is amazing, really like that one. I personally love the bow, but I'm sure it would work equally well without it too, it's all a matter of personal taste.
