Affection Collection, Bliss, Gelatos, Faber Castell

Quick gelatos play

I bought myself a little pack of metallic gelatos whilst mooching in a craft shop with the princess and my mum the other day and so when I got home I rustled up this little card for my parents to take to my auntie and uncles wedding anniversary celebration.

The colours don’t quite look true on this picture and if I am honest not too happy with the stamping I did (Affection Collection and Bliss stamps) but for first play with new stuff and whilst in a rush and also trying to origami with the princess… It is still a pretty card. Mounted on to Kraft card blank with lots of lovely trims.

Happy crafting!

Second golden wedding anniversary card

Hello dear readers

You may recall that a few weeks ago I posted about a golden wedding anniversary card I made as a commission for my parents. Well I made two as they have two couples to give them to in the coming months.

This one I decided on a blue theme for it, the other a red, this way they were both different… And the designs I chose were indeed very different!

I started with a square of whisper white and decorated it with stamping… Used Hello doily, Bliss, Language of Love, Affection Collection And Everything Eleanor stamps, in all different shades of blues and a bit of Smoky Slate thrown in too! I then cut a small strip out of the square so that it was two panels and stuck them to the Lost Lagoon cardstock. Next some glimmer paper and another mount of white and one in Island Indigo.

I decided to add a doily and I wrapped round the layered panels one of the lovely pleated ribbons… So decadent. This was then affixed to the card blank.

Next I created the topper out of die cut circles, one of which I edged with gold one, and onto this I stamped the sentiment. Not 100% happy with the sentiment… Who would have thought with all the stamps I have I have only one anniversary stamp … And I am not that keen on that!

Overall though, I love this card. Nice a classy and elegant with the right amount of bling for a golden wedding.

Happy crafting!
