Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share with you couple of cards I created few weeks back. In August we had two birthdays in close family: my niece had her 15th birthday, and my little sister was celebrating her round 20 🙂
For both cards I’ve used same layout, but by simply changing focal point and embellishments I created two cards that looked completely different 🙂
First card I’ve made for my niece and I was dying to use our new Cotton Paper. With Floral Frames framelits, Pansy Punch and Petite Petals Punch I created this amazing 3D flower.
I’ve sponged edges of petals with Whisper White Craft ink and close to center slightly in Wild Wasabi. Sentiment comes from Sprinkles Of Life; stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in white on piece of Basic Black.
Base for card is 4×4″. First layer is 3×3″ and I created this patterned paper myself. I simply used Stampin’ Write Marker in Crushed Curry and hand-drawn horizontal lines – cool, isn’t it? Second layer is a circle cut out from piece of Neutrals DSP Stack (Soft Suede) with Wild Wasabi watercolour “wash”. For more interest I added a banner underneath my layers and few sequins.
Second card I’ve made for my sister’s birthday. As I mentioned it’s same design. The only difference is that I kept 2nd layer clean and on the circle I used So Saffron, Hello Honey and Delightful Dijon “wash”. Same colours I’ve used for this gorgeous butterfly from Watercolor Wings.
The edges of wings and the body of butterfly I heat embossed in gold. On top I added small vellum butterfly. Tiny yellow pearls as well as piece of black/gold washi tape comes from my stash. Can you see little gold “bauble” peeking from underneath white layer? It’s one of White Perfect Accents, heat embossed in gold 🙂
So what do you think about my cards? My niece and sister loved them to bits, so I really hope you like them too 🙂
As always all the products I’ve used are listed below. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day
