Here’s a card we’re making in classes this month. I love the English Garden designer series paper and the Garden in Bloom stamp set together. And when you add a little gold foil and some sequins – magic!
I got the idea for this card from the box on page 111 of the annual catalog. (If you don’t have a catalog and would like one, let me know!) As you can see, I didn’t change a lot. The original is a box for cards; mine is a card.
I want to point out a few things you may have missed in the catalog. First – the metallic foil doilies are gorgeous! They come in two different sizes, and you get six of each size in silver and six in gold, for a total of 24 doilies. I used the larger size and cut them in half so I’d have enough.
The other gold gem is the gold metallic thread. It adds just that extra little something to a project. You don’t even always notice it, really, but you know there’s just something “more.” And the Whisper White satin ribbon is also just beautiful and elegant.
As someone said yesterday, “This is a girlie card.” I try to do a mix of different styles each month. But even if you don’t usually do “girlie” (and that’s ok!!), this would make a lovely anniversary or wedding card, don’t you think?
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a beautiful day!
