Christmas Rose Birthday Card Duo

Today I’m sharing these simple cards which have helped bump up my birthday card stash. They took just ten minutes to make each and you could make them in any colour.

Christmas Rose Blueberry Bushell Birthday Card

I chose to use Blueberrry Bushell and Lovely Lipstick for these cards but you could use any colour you like.

To add a little interest I’ve added a strip of the 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon to each card. The greeting comes from the Seaside Notions stamp set and is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Floral Friday: Christmas Rose Wedding Card

Today I’ve used the Christmas Rose stamp set to create a wedding card. I’ve gone far away from the colours in the Christmastime Is Here Suite and focused on colours from my own wedding.  I used Blackberry Bliss and Gold for my own wedding stationary, here I’ve added in Mint Macaron as a green for the foiliage.

I stamped the Chrsitmas Rose in Versamark and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I coloured the roses with both Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends and the leaves in a mix of Light Shaded Spruce and Dark Mint Macaron which gave them a two-tone effect which I really like.  I used a few drops of Golden Glitz Delicata Reinker and a Blender pens to colour in the berries on the image.

I added some interest to the Mint Macaron background layer by stamping the inner berry stamp in a random pattern all over with Versmark ink. I then added a strip of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon across the middle before adhering onto the Gold Foil layer.

I stamped the greeting from Beautiful Bouquet onto the large frame from the Roses die set and added this to the card. I then added my rose diecut over the top. I finished the card off with some of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots which I am loving and seem to be putting on every thing I make.

I’m loving all the products in the Christmastime Is Here Suite and actually how versatile they are as I don’t think this card looks Chrismassy at all do you?

Christmas Parcels Card

Today I’m sharing another card made with the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley, I’ve changed things up a little and made a slightly different card base to my usual one.

I cut my cardstock to 28cm x 11cm, I then scored the card in half at 14cm. On the front I cut 7cm off, so I had half of the card base missing. I covered the front and the inside of the card with the gold star card. The front piece measuring 6.5cm x 10.5cm and the inside piece measuring 13cm x 6.5cm.

MerryXmas Parcels inside

On the inside I added a whisper white oval for the sender to write their greeting. On the front I stamped my greeting in Real Red on the same size oval. The Merry Christmas comes from the Christmas Rose stamp set which is available to customers starting November 1st. I then backed this with a larger oval in Old Olive and adhered this to the front of the card, overlapping the oval on the inside.

Merry Xmas parcels flat

I decorated the front and the inside of the card with a row of stamped and diecut parcels line-up along the bottom of the card. I also added three gold stars from the product medley to compliment the star background.
