blog Bday Cards - Mar 14

Hi ladies,

Today I have a set of 3 shabby chic birthday cards to share created with flowers and ornate frames from the Spring 2013 Collection.

Enjoy Today


blog Enjoy Today - Card 2

On my 1st card I layered pp’s, an altered paper doily and a Pink Paisley doily diecut, which I embellished with a cluster of flowers.  I used the Ooh La La vintage flower and changed the pearl to match my colour scheme.  I also altered the cream minuette flower with touches of Glimmer Glam and Glaze, again to tie in with my colours.

On the 2nd card I have used the ornate frame-scallop white backed with pp and embellished with cluster of flowers.  Just use a pencil to trace the inside of the frame as a template, cut 1/2cm around the pencil line, then adhere paper to back of frame with glue.

On my last card I have used the ornate frame-gothic white which I backed with paper, and topped with a greeting sticker.

I embellished the frame with the camel coloured flower from the Floral Mix  tiffany pack, which I altered by pulling out the stamens and replacing with a wooden button topped with a pearl embellishment, and teamed with a soft gold tea rose.
