Flowerless Card ...

Hi Everybody,

I thought I would take a break from pink and flowers for todays card and so this one in lilac and a very pale green.

But the chance for you to win some beautiful blooms to add to your cards is still there so add your name to the list for some Wild Orchid Flowers

This card is using a white base card and then layered with the Enchanted Labels 28 in lilac.

Then I have added two panels from the Vintage Lace Motifs
and added  a Label 20 cut in pale green.

Along the centre of the label I have added in two of the border strips from the Vintage Lace Accents 

This matching Accent and Motif set is available from Save On Hobbies for a really competitive price.  There are other sets available too and they are all gorgeous.

My "Film Crew" and I made two videos yesterday. One was  using Spellbinders - Accents and Motifs 

I always like to buy the matching sets and there are some really pretty ones at Save on Hobbies

The next video will be Matting Basics and it will be available as soon as Griff has finished editing it for you.   And we have several more videos in the pipeline for the next few weeks.

The Fancy Bow is one of them and how to make a Hinged card is another .... so watch this space

  9. Christina, Did you have a hard time making this card without all your flower creations? I find when I step out of my comfort zone, my mind goes BLAH BLAH Blah.......I ask my and family, they say they look fine. so I guess my question for you is? Is this a normal thing for a new card maker? Also Love this card!!

  10. What a gorgeous card. The colours are wonderful.

  11. Hi Christina, what another amazing card. I went onto card-making magic yesterday and made up the acetate front card that you did the tutorial on. I was quite pleased with the way my card turned out,although I didn't put on as many flowers as I really wanted. Thank you so much for the tutorials that you have on this site, I just absolutely love them all, and you give me so much inspiration for my card making. You really are a star. Jen :-)
