Card featuring Creative Expressions Sue Wilson die CED1203 Seville

Tuesday, June 3, 2014
I meant to post this card I made much earlier, but had a very chaotic day and can't believe it is so late.  Hopefully, my friend Ruby got to see it before she went to bed tonight as I promised.  I finally broke into one of the Creative Expression dies by Sue Wilson after seeing so many beautiful creations.  This is the Spanish Collection - Seville die CED1203 (4 pc set)


It is a stand up card which I have never made before.


I watched a very informative YouTube video instructing how to do this.

I embossed the decorative die for the inside panel of the card to write on.
The picture does not capture the beautiful detail.

I didn't have a tall skinny sentiment that would fit on the narrow middle panel,
so I used a Joy!Craft flower die that I liked.  I embellished the flowers with
pink glass microbeads and Distress glitter.

Products Used:
Creative Expression Sue Wilson die CED1203 Seville - $31.50
Joy die 60030030 Vintage Flourishes Cutting Flower  - $7.50
Martha Stewart Luster Glass Microbeads - Tourmaline - $5.99
Distress Glitter - Clear Rock Candy - $5.49

I will definitely try different variations of cards with this beautiful die.  
 I had to run it through the cutting machine a couple times with an extra
piece of cardstock under the die to finally get it to really cut out all the intricate
parts.  I would probably suggest a metal shim if compatible with your machine.

Terri, this is a gorgeous card, glad to see you posting cards again. It would be great if you would repost the cards from Joan's Touch that she is using for the challenges, not everyone is getting to see them.
Keep up the creativity.
Hugs,
Gretchen
