Aqua French Collection Channel Card

 Good Morning Ladies,
Thank you for stopping by today.
I have used Aqua coloured card for todays card,
I used the Creative Expressions Rows Of Bows embossing folder on the Aqua card and then Die cut using the CE French Collection Border Die, designer by Sue Wilson of course,
I cut a mat for the aqua card out of Coconut white card and made it a little longer than the aqua card so that we had enough space for the channel and added a piece of Double sided adhesive sheet to the bottom of the mat (about 4 inch) wide and I peeled the backing off and covered it with Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow. I added some foam tape to the back of the Aqua card and mounted on top of the white card and positioned the border to match but leave enough of a gap to expose the Iced Snow covered Channel. I then used the Austrian Collection Innsbruck die with white card to cut a frame to lay over
slightly smaller frame also cut using the Innsbruck die out of the Aqua card, I stamped Happy Birthday onto the white frame and covered with an adhesive sheet and added some Iced Snow to match the channel.
To finish the card  made a bow out of white ribbon added an Aqua pearl brad and stick pin that I made in matching colour beads and a tassel.  then added a few adhesive pearls to the corners of the card and along the bottom.
I hope you like todays card, you could change the sentiment and use for any occasion.
Thanks again for stopping by.
I really do appreciate you taking the time to come over to see what I have been up to, I love to read your comments, it makes me so happy.
Crafty hugs to all of you lovely ladies,
Sandra xxxx

  6. Hi Sandra,
    Feel a bit like a stalker as have commented on three in one go! Believe me would not have done that if your cards had not been special! I love this one. I too am in an aqua phase! Lol. Sue is such a guru and has inspired us all. Keep up the good work. As you know I spend more time prepping for kids so don't have time to make cards to sell. They probably wouldn't sell anyway! However some of the older girls love making Sue roses!
    Love Myra

  7. Hi Sandra. Another gorgeous card. I am so glad that you are sharing your wonderful creations with us all . Take care. x
