Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

September 03, 2015

Special Wishes

Hi Everybody,

This card is a little more subdued than yesterdays but uses the same dies for the sentiment and the same pink spotty card from  AnnaMarie Designs

This card is 5x7 created with  Matting Basics  and I have used both the A and B sets to give me the layers that I need.

The next layer is parchment and I have embossed it with the Tied Together folder

Now this folder sells out every time it comes back onto the market so you may need to search for it.

I have trimmed the top and bottom of the parchment with  Scalloped Borders One

I have added it to my card with foam pads that sit under the sentiment and the ribbon and lace so that they cannot be seen

Into the cross sections I have added tiny pink pearls from  Want2Scrap

The sentiment has been stamped and embossed and then layered on tot the card front with foam to raise it up and I have used Standard Circle Lg  and matted it onto Lacey Circles

Have you joined in the new "Give Away"  yet .. you have until next Monday to add your name so what are you waiting for ??

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. Hi, Christina,
    Wow, what a pretty card! I love the way that just by changing the colour scheme the dies can look so different with each card you make. The embossed parchment really adds class to the finished card. Thanks for sharing with us. x
