Smile

Hi everyone, I have been playing with some goodies that I got from Santa and would like to share with you the card that I made.


On my card I have used Stitched Rounded Rectangles from MFT and the Lawn Fawn stamp set 'Blissful Botanicals" with the coordinating dies.  These are available from Bizzy Becs online store here.   I coloured the images with Copic Markers and added a little butterfly from a pack of Petaloo mini butterflies.  I have not done a lot of colouring lately with my Copic Markers, so it was good to get back into a project that was quite simple to colour and I love the finished effect.



Thank you for visiting.
Carolyn.

a vintage christmas card

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with loved ones. Today I would like to share with you a card I made for a friend of mine. I decided to go with a neutral pallete and a vintage theme.
I have embossed the background and mounted this on a contrasting layer. 
The candle die had three candles together but this was too large so I have just cut off the extra two giving me a nice simple look. 




I have mounted the holly die cut on foam tape and finished off with some stickles around the top of the candle, a few pearls stuck down on the ends of the vines help to add a nice soft contrast.


Memory box dies used: 
holly bouquet, pillar candle trio and victorian frame.
