Mauve Parisian Cards


I have made a couple of Mauve cards using the same mauve and white daisies I had made with a variety of sized daisy punches. 

This one I used a K.Kingdom Embossing folder that came from Fat Cats Card Corner called 'Leaves and Butterflies' (sorry it is not easy to see in this photo!). The centre pendant is made with a mauve layer that is a scalloped circle nestability, then the frame is made with a combination of the small corner on the Parisian Accents (same as the mauve top corners) by Spellbinder and also the centre pendant in white. Next is a square of mauve and finally another of the Parisian Accents centre pendants in white. On top of that is the daisy and some daisy buds made with the daisy punches in 3 different sizes and some punched leaves.  Finally at the bottom is some ribbon and lace and a mauve parisian accent tag with a white circle nestie with a little bling. 


The second card is similar but a little simpler, this one has two different sized daisies with the buds and punched leaves.  I have used the same Parisian Accents tag with a circle nestie, and then cut the numbers out of some glitter card. 

I have used embossed white card with Swiss dots and the bottom is a designer paper and the Parisian Accents border die.  

Red Sweetheart flowers

Goodness, I hadn't realised it has been quite so long since I did a posting!  I have been quite busy at work and so have been coming home tired and not feeling like doing much in the way of crafts.
Anyway one of the cards I have made recently is this white and red and silver card with some Sweetheart flowers that I learnt from Angie at Penny Flowers, who created them to dedicate to her Mum that passed away.  

Here is a closeup of the flowers.  I have used a Craft Concepts embossing folder called Budding Vine for the background, Cuttlebug vintage corners and Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2 behind the flowers.
