I've been having tons of fun with these fancy cards for our church card ministry. Even though the cards look very complex, they really are not.
The elegance of the card is the Cuttlebug designs on the white cardstock. I used sheer ribbon on many of the cards to add to the elegance.
The tulip cards use the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the background piece. The scalloped oval was embossed first using the Textile embossing folder and then cut using Nestabilities scalloped oval.
The image oval was colored using Koh-I-Noor woodless colour pencils and Gamsol, then cut and embossed using a classic oval Nestie.
I added polka dot sheer ribbon and mounted the finished piece to pastel card bases.
The rhinestones in the center of the Cuttlebugged flowers gave a nice touch of color to these cards. The flowers are from the With Love borders folders. Argyle embossing folder and ScorPal detailed the card front. I added sheer ribbons. The sentiment circle was cut using the Nesties Petite Scalloped circle and Classic circle dies. A tiny nail gem was added to the circle. I hand drew the dotted line and used a marker to slightly edge the circle.
This card can be used for nearly any occasion by simply replacing the "thank you" sentiment with any other one you want.
The main image of these cards was stamped and colored, embossed using the Swiss Dots folder, then cut with a Nesties oval die and mounted on a pink scalloped oval.
The plaid paper inspired the colors in the Garden Boots image. Each card has different colored Prima flowers and brads for the centers.
Thanks for looking.
