Lavender birthday card

When I got my Big Shot Plus for Christmas, one of the first things I did was test out an A4 embossing folder.  The resulting sheet of rather nicely embossed pearlescent card was duly admired, then put to one side on my desk.
Time to do something with it!  I made a background mat on a kraft card blank, and cut the lavender panel from a 6 x 6" paper pad sheet.  The sentiment tag was cut out of another sheet from the same pad using a new die from Apple Blossom, which is actually just the frame, so I cut another out of purple card and so made a purple frame around the 'waste' from the frame cut out of paper LOL.

It looked fine, but ...... it needed a little extra, so I put pearls on all the intersections of the embossed pattern.  Happy now :-)


  1. It looks stunning - no wonder you are happy :)

  2. Very elegant - the pearls are a perfect finishing touch

  3. Lovely card. Whoever gets it will be very pleased.

  4. Beautiful! Those pearls so make the card. Very stylish
