Birthday Card ...

Hi Everybody,

I like the shade of teal in this card as it is very pale and subtle.

The card is from Anna Griffin - Lovely Layers  and there are lots in the pack to choose from

I have used   Bracket Edge Borders Two  and created layers as I showed you in the Tuesday Tutorial on the 17th Feb

There are other tutorials with other types of border dies on Card Making Magic

The bottom of the card is created with Lonely Hearts  and I have used the inner piece to leave the design in the card

The inside of my cards is lined and created in the Hinged Card Style

The buckle and pearl centrepieces are from Wild Orchid Crafts 

The ribbon is some that I bought in  Lidl  and it is excellent quality in several colors too.  I have a little tutorial to show how I got the   Ribbons and Buckles   look for my design

And to finish the card I have added the Happy Birthday which is Spellbinders Sentiments Three

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  17. Good Morning Christina. So Rich and Elegant of a card this morning. Just Beautiful! Christina, I would not be surprised one bit if "Royalty" hasn't contacted you already to make their special personal cards for them. Thank you for adding beauty to start my day. It's 17 Below Zero here in Gaylord, Michigan this morning. Burrrrrr. I have to bundle up my little Dachshund in a snowsuit just so she can go out. Wishing you a beautiful day.

  28. Christina,
    Teal and white, as stated, are such outstanding colors. I agree with Donna, that Royalty should contact you to make cards for them. :)
