Shoreline Treasures - Dies to Die for DT card

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope you are well and having a good weekend.

My card today is made with some gorgeous goodies from Dies to Die for.

I have had fun making shadow box style card (there is a tutorial for these here) to feature some stunning Pion papers from the gorgeous Shoreline Treasures collection.

 The main image and sentiment were cut from the Bottom of the Sea sheet, and the beautiful butterflies from the Borders sheet. I have inked the edges of the papers and flowers with Weathered Wood Distress Ink which is the perfect colour match.
The aperture was cut using a circle die included in Die-Namics Blueprints 12,  I love how it cuts a line of stitching around the edge of the circle. The pretty corner swirl is by Die-namites and the flowers are made with a Cheery Lynn die called Sweet Christine

Items Used:



Thank you to everyone who sent me such lovely messages for my birthday yesterday. I had a wonderful day and a fabulous birthday tea in the evening with my children and hubby spoiling me and making me feel special.
I will try to catch up with all my commenting later today.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend
bye for now
hugs

Karen said...

My dear friend, firstly, how did I miss your birthday?! I am so upset with myself. I'm glad it was a lovely one, as you deserve every happiness. :o) Happy birthday to you, Sue! :o)

As for your card, it is stunning! (And what do mean by humble make?! You must have been sleepy when you typed that!) :o) I love the shadow box style card, especially for this collection. It's like we're peeking into the sea! How I adore the underwater paper, which is why I was so mad I didn't get a complete picture of it. You've showcased it brilliantly. Stunning work with these stunning papers, Sue! You always show the utmost beauty found in every crafty blessing. :o)

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
