Cards by Card Designer

Card Designer Joan Morrison has been very busy creating and sending me her beautiful card creations and I have so many to share with you.  This week I will be posting some of her creative works every day for you to enjoy and be inspired by.  If there are any dies she uses that you would like or if you have any questions, you can call me at 574-784-9050 or send an e-mail to me at: myjoansgardens@yahoo.com 


Today I will be showing some cards that Joan made featuring a 
variety of Sue Wilson Striplet dies and a few others.


This card features the Sue Wilson Rococo Striplet die.
The pink background really makes this stand out.
Simple yet so beautiful.

This gorgeous card gives the illusion of a striplet, but is actually 
made using the Sue Wilson Australian Background die. 
 This die not only makes a beautiful background for a card,
 but some clever yet easy cutting of the outer edges 
then joining them together makes a very unique "striplet". 
  Bet there are other background dies that you could do the same
 technique with. 
Great way to think outside the box!!

This is such a pretty card made with the Sue Wilson
Tethered Hearts Striplet die.  What I really like about this
striplet is that it could be used for Valentine's Day cards, Birthday,
or even give it a Christmas look with a Poinsettia in the middle.
So many possibilities just by choosing different background paper,
embellishments and sentiments.

This stunning Christmas card is made using the Sue Wilson
Holly Mini Striplet and her beautiful yet elusive Swirling Holly
Embossing Folder that is unfortunately no longer available :(
It would still look lovely on a solid background or probably
any other holiday embossing folder you might already have. This 
picture does not do it justice...the watercolored background for the 
holly leaves and the little red rhinestones for the berries give it a
very classy look with such beautiful detail.

I love these tri-fold cards and the striplet dies work great
with this style of card.  This card features the Sue Wilson
Lattice Window Striplet die. Each side is embellished 
by a floral flourish and a large bloom in the center.
Simply gorgeous!

 Another beautiful tri-fold card, but instead of using a striplet die,
Joan used the Sue Wilson Ursa Gemini die on the panels and the 
inside decorative die from the California Collection Beverly Hills 
 die set as the center focal point embellished with Cheery Lynn leaves
and tea rose floral.  What a great way to utilize the Gemini die other
than a border at the bottom of a card.  So very pretty.

I really like these tall skinny cards and wish my camera
(for my lack of photography skills)  could capture the true
beauty of this Fall card featuring the border and tag from the 
Sue Wilson Austrian Collection Border, Corner and Tag die set.
The brown glitter paper and the leaves cut out of copper foil
 compliment each other perfectly.
