Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

June 29, 2015

We are all Special ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card uses a mixture of striped card from  AnnaMarie Designs  and some silver foiled card from  Hunkydory  and although completely different they play nicely together.

I have created the card from 5x7 Matting Basics A&B from Spellbinders  and the foiled card is Labels Twenty

I have used the matching Diamant√© from Want2Scrap  to surround both layers of the label

The satin ribbon around all the layers is from  Mei Flower and the lovely sentiment is from  Lili Of The Valley  which has been stamped in black and clear embossed

The bows centrepiece and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and are a mixture of Roses, Gypsophillia, Lilies, Apple Blossom and Magnolias.

Just a couple of things I would like to say ... First is that I am going to be stuck with three blue card if the ladies whose names were added as an extra on Saturday to win them don't come forward.  Here are the names again ... and then I give up ....
 Donna Sherman ... Jayne Buckley ... Sandra Smith ...
I know we humans like to skim a page but you will miss out if you don't read the blog post completely

Secondly the link to the
Inspiration Page is at the top left of the page and it is a video card collection. Click the photo at the top and it will take you to another page.

It is NOT the  "My Designs"  which I have now moved to the bottom of the column.  That is simply a slideshow from Photobucket and there is nothing to click there and you may get an error message if you try to open that. 

And to the ladies who have already found it Thank You for the lovely comments you have left for us. We will be adding more as often as we can

And don't forget that the card photo under the heading Tuesday Tutorial is also clickable and will take you to another new page with lots of tutorials from this blog ... a new one every week ...and Spellbinders with a new one every month. 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  17. Hi Christina, a really lovely card with do many shades of green. As usual adorned with beautiful colours. X Ros

  18. Lovely card Christina. You always give such clear directions about everything on your blog. I cant see how anyone doesn't understand.Maybe they are newcomers and are just finding their way around. Hope your "blue" winners turn up! xxx

  19. I cannot believe these people have not claimed their cards...what a shame, I will have one !!!! I just love this card, those colours are just so pretty, that bow and the dazzler just put the finishing touch to it.....luv Ursula xx

  20. I love how you utilize more than one die-cut from the same design. I'm practicing that idea. Hope you find homes for the "Blues" cards. The girls don't know what they are missing. Have a great week.

  21. If they don't want them, I will,have them, how can you not want to claim such beautiful cards.

  22. Very pretty card, love the dies and colours you have used. I do hope that the ladies claim their blue cards. Only a family emergency would keep me from checking to see if I had won one of your beautiful cards.

  23. Today's card is beautiful as always....tfs
    If no claims one of the blue card I would like to add my name of getting
    I know I've missed a few of your daily blog cause I was away and no internet where I was..but anytime beside that I read and watch everything you add to this site...
    Thanks for everything Christina

  24. So sad that the winners of the blue cards are not following through! I know I would if I was one of them!!
    LOVE this beautiful card! The sentiment is amazing and love the striped paper!! TFS!

  25. So pretty! I love the colors and papers you chose and of course the die cuts and embellishment. Well done as usual and I pinned as usual.

  26. Darn. I pinned the wrong one, lol Here is the right one. Comments still apply. LOL

  27. Christina. This card is beautiful. Different colour to usual but still lovely.

  28. I won a beautiful pink card & will gladly give it a friend with a blue one - wink wink!
    So sorry Christina about people creating a headache when all you want to do is make someone's day with your kindness-- don't give up! There are still plenty of us who love what you do & TRULY appreciate your talent and generosity!

  29. Hi Christina
    What a very pretty card and I love the colour and patterned card you have used. Another spectacular card
    Love and best wishes

  30. Beautiful. I love this one but green is my favorite colour:). I'm sure if any of your cards remain unclaimed there are more than a few of your followers who would jump at the chance to give them a home, myself included. Thanks for your ongoing generosity.

  31. Your cards are gorgeous. I enjoy your posts.

  32. Hi Christina, beautiful card I love the colours and the layout ESPECIALLY your fabulous bows, mine never look as beautiful and neat like yours always do, no matter how I try. Ladies come and claim your cards !!! You don' know what you are missingI am still admiring the beautiful card I won a couple of months ago. Waiting for a taxi at unearthly o'clock so will be away for a week, will have to catch up when I get back on all the beautiful cards I will have missed each day I'm away, take care.
    Regards Liz

  33. What a beautiful card. I love the colors and striped paper you chose..just beautiful.
    I'm so sorry the ladies weren't able to come forward to claim their cards. I hope that's the reason..that they had a good excuse and truly weren't able; otherwise, it takes away the enjoyment and excitement someone else may have had if her name had been drawn.
    Again, a really great job on the green card!

  34. Such a beautiful card Christina and I love the colour and the verse. X

  35. Hi Christina, a beautiful card, love the paper !
    If for some reason the ladies do not turn up for
    their cards I have an empty windowsill :-)
