CRC162 Sweet Soiree

This week we are showcasing pretty projects inspired by the Sweet Soiree Suite- what a tongue twister. For this week's CASE I wanted to make something easy to show off the beautiful elements in the Embellishment Kit. It has loads of gorgeous diecuts of the flowers,  some single roses, 3 cakes,a few pages of  lovely silver and vellum leaves and floral sprays which are very easy to add to cards. There are also mini white pegs, some paper tassels, a roll of mini silver washi and some blue velvet scalloped ribbon.

I CASEd the layout from the card in the top right box on page 12 of the Occasions catalogue.
Using the notecards and envelopes is a wonderful timesaver as they are prescored and ready to decorate.

I used my (current) favourite embossing folder to add some detail to the lower third of the crumb cake panel,  added a strip of the mini washi, looped some metallic black thread and then popped the diecut up as the feature. Quick and easy.

The same lovely floral sprays are also printed in silver on the vellum and lend themselves to colouring from the back or using just as they are. I forgot to photograph them but I also emboss the flap of the envelope with the same embossing folder to add a finishing touch.

You might also notice the cutest little epoxy shapes on these cards. They come in clear and glitter and are tiny - just perfect for a subtle bit of shine and dimension.

There are lots of gorgeous parts to this suite, I am loving the rose in the masks as well and have made this design a few times now. But I'll show you more of that tomorrow so make sure you are signed up to follow me by email for some tips and tricks with that mask. (See the ranbow box on the right side of this page) 
You can see some of the silver leaf sprays as well as the diecut rose tucked into this card

The Sweet Soiree DSP is just stunning - with all that lovely silver on it. I made lots of little boxes to show off how pretty it was. More details on that here
