1st Birthday cards
I purchased some more embossing folders for my Cuttlebug (can't wait for Bigshot to get here!) & this Paisley one was perfect for this Simple chipboard 1st Birthday card, Colours are Piroutte Pink & Riding Hood Red on Whisper White. I inked up the chipboard with white craft ink first & heat set to dry, I then inked it in a lttle Riding Hood Red purposely leaving some White so that when I dazzled it with Heat & Stick powder & Diamonds it wasn't to deep in colour. The scalloping I did with the scallop edge Punch & the card is finished off with Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon & retired Hodgepodge Buckle.
The original #1 chipboard I dazzled was on raw chipboard which wasn't girly enough & even though I have no 1st Birthday boys to give it to but I wanted to use it & the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I cased this layout & loved it so much that I made 4 other cards (I already posted 2) -it's a great inspiration to start with a layout!
Tea Party DS papers for the monogram cards below were also perfect for the Christening & Teya's Reconciliation card. The T & S are embossed in silver & Dazzled with Diamonds with 2 way glue pen. Tea Party DS papers has Basic Grey in it so I mounted the letters on the Grey then onto the Scalloped Pretty in Pink & added Silver Brads to tie it all together.
Thanks Andrea for making it easy for me to make these beautiful cards!
