Golden Wedding

I was asked to make this card for a Golden Wedding Anniversary.
The chipboard heart was embossed using the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder and then I painted it with a gold Dabber. I added three gold crystals down the left hand side and finished the card off with gold sheer ribbon and an Elegance Save the Date message.

Distress Inks

This card is definitely not my usual style but I did enjoy making it and am quite pleased with the result. I coloured the card blank using Distress Inks, then cut the flourishes and used the waste as a stencil. The flowers were cut from Grunge Board (this already had the embossed swirls on it) and I then used Distress Inks to colour them. I added a little Distress Stickles to the end of the petals on the middle flower. I punched a hole through the centre of each flower with a Japanese screw punch and then fastened all three together using a brad.

To finish the card off I stamped the wording using a Tim Holtz unmounted stamp but the least said about that the better!

Julie's Birthday Card

I made this card for Julie Hickey. Just incase you haven't heard of Julie she works for Craftwork Cards - designs products, demonstrates, runs workshops and has been known to write the odd book or two! It was Julie's birthday last week and I know she received the card as it is on her blog.
I got the papers some time ago from Craftwork Cards - in fact I had forgotten all about them! The picture doesn't do them justice as they are lovely and sparkly in real life.

Vintage Rose

Vintage Rose is a new paper collection from Craftwork Cards. The three papers I used on this card are all from this collection.

I inked the edge of the striped paper with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The sentiment is an Elegance Birthday Message from Craftwork Cards - another new product! I added two pieces of Card Candy to it and covered them in glitter glue. The flower is made up from two die cut daisies scored down the centres with another piece of Card Candy and glitter glue to finish it off.
