Hello Everyone! I made this card for my daughter’s birthday. She just graduated from Clemson University last December. We are all so proud of her.
Clemson’s colors are orange and a deep blue, almost purple. So I tried to keep in-like colors for her. With pale oranges and lavender.
The style of course is very, shabby chic! I scraped and curled most of the edges. The beautiful wide lace and pearl trim lace, were purchased from hobby lobby. For the bow I actually used cheese cloth. The lovely rose is from Prima. The papers are from my stash. I do know the shimmery, pale orange, flocked (with white hydrangea’s) was just recently purchased at A.C. Moore. I promise to get back to you with the title of that paper as, it is gorgeous! I love flocked paper.
Also, there is a 3 beaded headpin. I added 3, 6mm bicone, padparasha, swarovski, crystals and a filigree bead cap to it, Then below the flower is a piece of vintage jewelry my sister acquired and I begged her for. It has 2 leaves and a stem with crystals on all. The leaves were painted and are chipping (which adds to the shabby feel). The gold is still very shiny and brilliant. Love that piece. I could only add it to a card because it was for my girl . . . ya know. 🙂
Hope you like it. Let me know what you think. Thanks! 🙂 .
Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!
This is a birthday card I made for my eldest son Joshua, who just recently turned 35.
The black doily frame piece was cut using a spellbinders die. The black medallion was made with black glitter paper, Tim Holtz metal cogs and watch parts were used, as well as actual watch parts.
The background paper is Mambi and the halfback black pearl is from Martha Stewart. Thin satin ribbon is simply wrapped around the card and tied in a bow at the top held with a dot of E6000.
Thanks for stopping by and tell what you think. 🙂
This is a very simple, straight forward card. The flourish was sent to me by my sister. It is cut out of a blue, glitter, shiny card stock. The gardenia is a pale green. the white flower is an embellishment I picked up at Wal-Mart. the teal glass stone was part of my jewelry making stash and I purchased it at Hobby Lobby some time ago. The sentiment is part of a spellbinders, nestability die cut that I colored in ceruleun blue on the edges. Then at the top are 3 recollections, 6mm, light blue pears. The background cardstock is textured, light blue. Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what you think! TaTa for now. 🙂
This is a birthday card I made for my brother Jamey. For me, it requires a little more thought to make a masculine card.
I started with the chip-board element that says brother in the middle. Both the chipboard element and the brown, cotton, trim on the left side, are from Hobby Lobby, Paper Studio. I used a Martha Stewart, border punch on the edge. The background paper was given to me by my sister at http://www.miniwonderfulthings.com and neither one of us can remember where it came from, sorry. Continue reading
