Gold Graceful Garden

Happy World Card Making Day! Hope you’re all enjoying a little crafting today. For today’s card I chose to feature Graceful Garden, which has 15% off until Monday. As you know I love my floral sets and I particularly adore the rose images in this set, as soon as I get more watercolour paper I’m going to be colouring that gorgeous big rose. Today I chose to focus on the small rose image and use it more of an accent for the card.

The combination of Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Gold give this card a very luxurious feel and make it perfect to give as an anniversary card or birthday card for that special someone.

I’ve added the Gold Metallic edged ribbon behind my circle to soften the card and add a little bit of texture.

Inside I’ve repeated the same rose image on the bottom right corner. I really love how this card turned out and think its my favourite so far from this week.

Join me tomorrow for another project using the 15% stamp sets.

Happy 10th Anniversary Card

This year one of my best friends is celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary so I wanted to make her a special card, the Milestone Moments stamps from the Spring/Summer Catalogue is perfect for this kind of occasion.

I chose Pink Pirouette for the card base and embossed the front half of the card using the beautiful Falling Petals Textured Impressing Embossing Folder, don’t the petals look like tiny little love hearts?

To create a focal point for the card I took one of the Lace Doilies from the Spring/Summer catalogue, I love these because one side is Very Vanilla and the other side is Whisper White which makes them super versatile. I chose the Very Vanilla side to complement the Satin Ribbon that I used for the bow.

I die cut a circle from the Layering Circles Framelits and the Stitched Shape Framelits in Very Vanilla and Pink Pirouette. The greeting taken from the Milestone Moments stamp set was stamped in Soft Suede.

I think this is lovely simple card and I hope my friend and her husband like it.
