CTC#67 Birthday Bouquet Suite

Hello again this beautiful Sunday. You may have come from Kathryn's blog, her Birthday Bloom card was awesome. Welcome to the hop. Hard to believe but tonight is our 100th HOP, that's certainly worth celebrating.

This week will be a treat seeing all the beautiful creations from the gorgeous Birthday Suite in the occasions Catalogue from pages 8-15.

There are so many beautiful products in these pages. I was so excited when I first saw the Number of Years bundle. Being able to personalise any card with the gorgeous big numbers is fabulous, and even better I love the font for the sentiments. I have been waiting a long time for SU to bring out a set that simply said Happy Anniversary, and this is it!I have chosen to CASE card on p10. 

 I do have a special couple in mind for their Anniversary this year. my parents in law

The  numbers images in the Number of Years set are big and bold but so pretty. Cutting them out is a breeze with the large Numbers Framelits Dies. I love the white border around the numbers. I felt that the floral image was a bit bold for the softness of the DSP so I covered this layer with some Botanical Gardens DSP.  This is a treatment I really like, and to avoid seeing any adhesive through the vellum I have simply wrapped it completely around the base panel and the glue is on the back - Easy, and theres's a second card below to show the same technique.

The patterned vellum shows up well over a dark base card, here I have used Soft Suede.

So I hope you have found some inspiration here. Enjoy hopping around the rest of the CTC design crew. Next up is Helen, her work is always so detailed and lovely.

Don't forget you can join in with use any time. We will choose a winner from all the selections for the month.

Thanks for looking, 
Happy Stamping, Liz

  1. Love the way you've placed vellum over the stamping, it's so soft and sweet. Beautiful anniversary card, Liz.

  2. Such a gorgeous anniversary card, Elizabeth. Love the soft look created by the vellum.

  3. Congratulations to your in-laws! I am sure they will adore their card. Clever wrapping of the vellum to hide the adhesive. That's why the CTC hops are so good, as I would never have thought of that.

  4. THe soft look is amazing!! Thank you for your inspiration - what a beautiful card!!

  5. Fabulous technique, Liz, & your anniversary card is just stunning! Love how subtle the vellum is on the first card & the pretty detail it adds to the second. :)

  6. Oh, it looks so pretty. I love how you have put vellum over the stamping, looks so soft and pretty. I'm sure they loved the card!!

  7. lovely card, thanks for the tip about wrapping the vellum around the card, I often avoid vellum because of the adhesive issue.
