Blue friend ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is elegant and perfect to let friends know that they are special.

The blue card is from Papermill Direct and makes a really pretty effect when covered with the embossed parchment I have used

The parchment has been embossed with the Butterfly Folder  and added to the blue card so that the foam tape sits beneath the added oval.

For the oval I have used the Spellbinders Victorian Bow  and I have cut this in antique silver card that I bought from the craft shows

The verse is from a set by JustRite Stampers  and it fits beautifully inside the frame that matches Labels 29

The ribbon is Organza  from Mei Flower and tied in a double bow with a pale blue pearly centre over the knot

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and put together to compliment the card.  The centre of each flower has a tiny Glitter ball also from WOC

They have added sparkle from Glitter Magic  and into the display I have added blue Hat Pin that can be removed as a gift for the recipient of your card.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  1. Hi Christina, another stunner today I love how you have added the embossed parchment to the card, it really makes it look extra special and the flowers, bow and hatpin are really beautiful. Love the colour combination too. I have yet to get my crafting stash out after Christmas. Had a tidy up day with my husband yesterday and it took all day finding a place for it all so it is all now in one place. Is anyone as bad as me. Kind regards Anne Owens xx

  6. So elegant! The touch of silver using the Victorian Bow die adds the perfect touch. I hadn't seen that die before but it's now on my "must have" list. The flowers are so pretty but I really like the embossed parchment paper layer. Beautiful!

  13. Morning, Christina,
    Wow...elegant is a little bit of an understatement for today's card. It's incredible. I now want to rush out and see if I can get some parchment paper so that I can try embossing. The effect is fabulous! I'm thinking of trying a variety box of card from Papermill Direct. It's a great price and a great way to try some of their wonderful colours. The biggest problem is that they have so many choices it's an almost impossible task lol.
