Birthday Cupcakes Decoupage

A quick card tonight while watching TV...

The decoupage topper is from Anita's foiled range. It was quick to put together and I like the vibrant colours.

I added some heart polka dot cerise patterned paper, a mirri card die-cut border and some mirri Card Candi.

The greeting was created in Publisher and matted on mirri card then mounted using foam pads. A very quick card for my box.

Shiny Heart Anniversary

Today's card - an Anniversary card for my friend to give to her parents...

I used a lovely filigree heart by a company called Apple Blossom (came with a magazine) to cut the heart in silver mirri card. I mounted this on a white linen background with a mirri and patterned paper border.

The greeting was created in Microsoft Publisher using Monotype Corsiva font matted on mirri card and mounted using foam pads.

Very CAS but the  bright white linen card used makes it look much more interesting.

Bold Flowers and Patterns

Oh my - two weeks since my last post - my poor neglected blog. Life has taken over but I did have time to make this floral birthday card using some papers and toppers that came with an old issue of Making Cards Magazine.

It's an unusual colour scheme but I like it!

The greeting and the embellishments were all fussy cut and I added some matching pearls and ribbon.
