Circle thinlit Birthday Card

My first published attempt at the Circle Thinlit Card using Crumb Cake and Rich Razzleberry and and old retired stars set as well as Simply Stars.

Golden Wedding Anniversary Card

My wonderful parents celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary this month so I have made them a special card using inspirations from a box card I saw on Pinterest here at  Rica's haven shadow box tutorial. I wanted something deep enough to hold the bouquet of flowers. I used Vellum cardstock as the card front which gave it a nice depth too.  The woodgrain in the  Natural Composition Specialty DSP gave the box a little more weight and stability, and made it look more like a frame I think. The Memorable Moments stamp set was perfect too. Thanks for looking, Liz

Butterfly punched from vellum, then embossed,  -love it
used some special gold marbled paper for background, and paper flowers for the bouquet.

Butterfly Punch CASE from the Catalogue, and Ex Libris background

 these cards were all inspired by the picture on page 3 of the Annual Catalogue. I don't have the great dictionary stamp so i used Gorgeous grunge as the background stamp and added my own sentiment stamps. I used all the new 'In Colours". I think the polka dot paper is just so cute. these are really easy to make, hope you give it a go.

For the last one I used the ovals framelits and some white ink for the texture print on the card base. The centre panel background is done using the Ex Libris stamp which was only lightly inked in a random pattern. I am quite happy with how this turned out. Not the best photo, much prettier in RL.
Thanks for looking Liz

The Smoky Slate base has been sponged with Island Indigo and mounted up on dimensionals. I love the Indigo Chevron ribbon in teh bow but have also designed a flatter option for postage.We'll be making 10 cards in 2 different designs- my only dilemma is choosing which will be the second design! Thanks for looking Liz
