Just a Note Card - Craft Dies by Sue Wilson

Hello Friends,
I have a fun card to share with you created with Sue Wilson's new collection of dies. These dies are just beautiful and I love to design cards with them.









Instructions:

1. I started by creating the card base from white cardstock using the largest die from Noble Dies - Ornate Pierced Design
2. I die cut and embossed all the layers using the same die set and designer cardstock. I colored the embossed area and edges with distress ink mini pads. The layers were adhered to card base using foam squares.
3. For the flowers and fern I used  Finishing Touches - Classic Foldover FlowersFinishing Touches - Maidenhair Fern, and Finishing Touches - Dandelion Clocks.  I used designer cardstock to die cut the flowers and fern and then colored them with distress inks. 
To watch a video with Sue on how to create these pretty flowers go HERE.
4. The sentiment "Just a Note" was die cut with Expressions Dies - Just a Note and adhered to card with glue. 


Supplies:

You can also find Sue Wilson's Dies in the UK by going HERE

Other Supplies: Neenah Papers - Solar White, Prima Marketing - Art Journal Pad, Ranger Distress Ink Mini Pads - Brushed Corduroy, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Victorian Velvet, Foam Squares.
