Birthday Layered Cake


This sweet card was made using all retired products. It's watercoloured on a white-embossed image which is quite hard to do, but worth the struggle! I love the embossed little dots, so sweet.

Lilac & Navy Wedding

Another commissioned card was for a wedding. The colours are Lilac and Navy and the married couple's initial will be "P". I came up with this card using the retired 'Sophisticated Serifs' (one of my all time faves) and the absolutely stunning 'Floral Phrases'. I heat embossed with clear powder to give the card some dimension.

Umbrella Flowers

I'm always flattered when a friend commissions a card from me :) Debbie needs a few cards over the next few weeks, starting with a birthday card for her Mum back in England. Her birthday is in April so Debbie thought an umbrella would be pretty, "April Showers". I used our 'Weather Together' set with a sentiment from 'Something to Say'. I used my new Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers (which are fantastic!) and the new hearts embossing folder. Love how this one turned out.

I also threw together a super-simple thank you card using the SAB set 'Any Occasion', certainly a CAS card ;)
