Cream and Gold Elegant Cards

Happy New Year

Today I am featuring some cards that I have just made.  I know that foil card has been around for a while, but I have only just discovered it and I LOVE the effects and contrasts you can get with it.  I love the elegance combining gold and cream and they work well with a 50th anniversary card.   And of course I had to use the Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose stamp and die sets to add the flowers and embellishments.

This  first card has been inspired by Jeannie Donnolly I had seen on Pinterest.

I find it difficult making two cards the same and this one is no exception.  I had actually cut one of the Maggie dies incorrectly but ended up layering the dies under the main die image and used the Classic Border Basics cutting die from Heartfelt Creations to cut a strip to cover the gap and I was happy how it turned out.20170101_184549

The Gold Majestic Circle die from Spellbinders is a very interesting die with lots of lovely embossed textures on it and once again it is lovely for numbers for a milestone card.

Finally, here is a card that I made that has no sentiment for any occasion but I think it looks very elegant for a special occasion.  I often get requests for plain unadorned cards.

Happily Ever After by Sue Wilson

Welcome back

I had a lovely but very busy weekend at the Wellington Paper Arts and Crafts Show.  I met lots of new people and friends to share my love of paper crafting.

This week I am featuring some Sue Wilson dies from Creative Expressions.  I now have a range of these dies available at Gift Hutt and I think they are elegant and very versatile.

The dies I am using are the Lattice Frame and the Happily Ever After die sets.  I love the look of stitching and the Lattice Frame die is just beautiful and can be used for so many things.  I have made three different sized cards using this die set.

First up is the smallest card using the beautiful pearlised cardstock from Worldwin (it is hard to photograph the finish of this card).  I love cream on cream and this card is so elegant for a wedding.  I have cut two layers of the sentiment to help it stand out as this cardstock is quite light weight.

This second card is the medium size die and I have layered the same lovely cream cardstock with a pearl lavender cardstock which I can no longer get from Rosies Studio.  I love the combination of the colours here.

Finally this is the largest size card and I have changed it around a bit and added a Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret rose for a very versatile card.
