Silver Foliage Card

 Today's card is in what I call 'French Style' - it's strange how card makers from different countries have a particular style. On my last holiday to the continent (remember holidays?) I picked up a couple of issues of a French card making magazine - Passion Cartes Creatives - I found in a newsagent shop in Strasbourg and I loved how French cardmakers use a lot of mirri card and foliage dies in their cards...

I've used a kraft card base and also die cut some kraft stiched-squares - one of my presents from Santa! I've been after some square dies with a stiched-border effect for a while and I was over the moon to see these reduced in The Works last weekend before it shut again for lockdown.

The foliage dies are from various sets and makes I have in my stash and I've used silver mirri-card to cut the shapes.  The pastel patterned paper is from a Simply Creative pack - Let It Snow - from The Range.

I've arranged the squares and foliage randomly, and I've added a greeting created in Publisher using Monotype Corsiva font. I've also added some tiny pale blue pearls.

I'm playing along with the 'Use something new (the dies) challenges at:

Take care and stay safe
