Shabby Chic Birthday

Hi Everybody,

This really pretty card is in very subtle shades of green and is one of the paper stacks available from AnnaMarie Designs

They are the Blissful Paper Pads and they come in several different colours and sizes so there is sure to be a size that suits your needs.

I have added lots of layers to the card and distressed the edges of some of them and I have lined the inside of the card to match

The leaves are cut from the papers with the Foliage die from Spellbinders and the paper is substantial enough to make into leaves

The wooden tiles are also from AMD and I have added them with hot glue to keep them in place

The flowers and the miniature picture frame, which I have filled with pearls,  are from Wild Orchid Crafts and they have a new range of flowers on their website that are simply gorgeous.

I have added the sparkle to the petals with Glitter Magic   and the pearls are from Want2Scrap

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  15. Hi Christina,
    I hope you're having a great bank holiday. I love this card. It's time for me to start thinking about making a birthday card for my sister and I'm thinking that I would love to be able to make one that kind of looks like this. If you remember I made her the lovely flower box for her last year so it needs to be something differnt this time, plus easy to post as she's now moved to the other side of the country instead of being ten miles up the road :)
