Pink floral thank you card .........

A thank you (Scrapiniec chipboard sentiment) card with Maja Design 'Vintage Autumn' 6x6 paper, handmade flowers from white foam, brushed with ink dusters, mulberry pink large rosebud and a white cherry blossom brushed with ink duster.  The leaves are cut with my lovely new dies as is the frame and mount - THANK YOU ANDREA  - I love getting crafty stuff for Christmas :-)  I also brushed the white leaves with green ink using another ink duster brush.

I added 12mm pale pink faux silk ribbon and some antique white 'Alison' vintage style fine cotton lace.  I used ivory/cream beaded berries for the centres of my two handmade flowers and tucked another under the cherry blossom.  
Thanks for looking, I hope you had a lovely Chrismas and see you again soon

Thank You card .......

I made this 'Thank You' card using paper from the gorgeous Lemoncraft 'Heart Painted' 6x6 paper pad  and tried to match the embellishments to the pink roses in the corners.  

I used 25mm double sided pink satin ribbon, a Scrapiniec Round Doily Lace Frame and Thank You sentiment and hand made foam flowers

I made the roses from pink Foamiran sheet and also some little blossom flowers from white foam sheet with pieces of pink/pink beaded berry inside as stamens.  One or two pink and white beaded strawberries tucked in with some co-ordinating leaves diecut from more paper from the same Lemoncraft pad

Thanks for looking, see you soon,

Christmas Greetings card

A Christmas card using paper and image from the Maja Design 'I Wish' 6x6 pad.  I added Michele white guipure lace, shabby white gathered tulle, 6mm white flatback pearl trim

I made the flower (supposed to be a poinsettia, but not too successful)  with white Foamiran and placed a 15mm pearl and diamante embellishment in the centre, adding a 20mm ivory rose, green/red frosted berries and silver fabric and mulberry paper rose leaves.  I tucked a diecut snowflake behind the flowers and another just behind the shabby trim.

Foam sheet, flowers, berries, leaves, lace, shabby trim, pearls and Stardust Stickles all from www.ribbongirl.co.uk

Thanks for looking, see you soon

A pair of stockings .....
