Light Purple Card with Roses

 I wanted to make a special card in light purple. 

 I use light purple cardstock for the card base and ran another piece through my printer and then the Minc to add silver foil. The next layer was covered in texture paste then embossing powder was added. I edged the layers in embossing powder also.

I loved the foil so much that I added another panel to the back.

Believe it or not the handmade paper roses started out as white cardstock. I inked and inked and ended up with a color so close to the purple cardstock that I guess I should have just started the roses with colored paper and saved myself some work. LOL

Pink roses and lace

After saving my Prima Tales of You and Me patterned paper, I finally decided to use some of it. I made some lovely pink roses and used pearls and lace to finish the card off.

The lace was white but that rather stood out on the cream based patterned paper.  I used Tattered Rose Distress Stain to help it fit in better. I added a piece of stained seam binding over the top.

 I normally use solid colored card bases but I felt like using this lovely patterned paper this time and really liked it.

I am off to make more flowers. 
Hope you have fun crafting.

Speak "Birthday" And Enter

We are huge Lord Of The Rings fans. For my son's last birthday, I decided to replicate a scene from the book and movie of a secret door that only shows up in moonlight. I thought holographic foil on a navy blue gatefold card was perfect. The only problem was that I could not find a good image to copy. I ended up recreating the entire image from scratch in Inkscape. (EVEN the elvish writing!) So, despite the fact that this card has no handmade flowers, it still took me an entire week to make. LOL
