Two for the boys

Here are a couple of boy cards I made using Paper Creator kits, it's quite difficult to know what embellishments to add to male cards, but you can't go wrong with buttons and ribbons, particularly grosgrain ribbon, which for some reason is always my go to item for male cards, maybe because it's not as shiny as satin ribbon and looks more robust. Luckily Meiflower has a great selection of grosgrain ribbons and buttons that are perfect for the job.

Thanks for dropping by,
enjoy your weekend,

A wedding card (sort of)!

Here's a card I've made for a friend of mine and her hubby who are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary today by getting married again! They are renewing there vows at the same church, on the same date and time as they did when they got married.
I have used the gorgeous metallic edged ribbon from Meiflower and some fabulous new pearl embellishments that look like a large pearl surrounded by small pearls, just perfect for wedding cards.

The card would work perfectly well for someone getting married the first time too, just by changing the wording.

Thanks for popping in,

Thank you Teacher

Here's a couple of cards I made using the same layout, just changed one paper, the base card and the image to get both a Thank you Teacher card and a birthday card. Both cards have ribbons and stick on gems from Meiflower.

There is also a 10% off everything sale going on at Meiflower until midnight Friday 2st June, so a good chance to stock up on ribbons, gems and embellishments.

Cream wedding anniversary card

Here's another card made using Meiflower burgundy gems, I used die-cuts and rich cream and ivory card from Papermill Direct, the slight difference in the colour of the card makes the die-cuts stand out a little.

bugundy stick on gems in various sizes and burgundy pearl hearts - Meilfower

To Someone Special

I added some of Meiflowers gorgeous metallic edged wedding ribbon to this card in a pretty sage green colour, I love the colour and thought it matched the green in the papers perectly. I also used some fabulous bright yellow gems, teeny tiny ones to the centres of my flowers and large 5mm on the punched border and between the flowers.

Something Old, Something New

This card is definitely something new to me, it's called Flipper Pyramage and is really easy to put together, but adds lots of lovely dimension to the card.

I tried to replicate the arrangement around the stems using ribbons and a Satin Rosebud Trio from Meiflower.

Thanks for taking a look,
hope you have an enjoyable weekend,

Another wedding invitation sample

This burgundy and cream card was decorated with Meiflower's burgundy gems and pearls, it took me ages to get a decent photo of the gems as they always looked black on the photos, but in real life they are a lovely rich burgundy colour. I finally managed to get a photo where you can see the burgundy colour in some of them.
I added alternating rows of pearls and gems to the crossover points of the embossed card and gems around the heart and in the flower centre and strip of burgundy organza ribbon a couple of pearl hearts in the corner.

Today's card made using the Out of this World Gatefold card kit from Paper Creator is for all the young astronauts out there, and the perfect embellishment is the Journey charm from Meiflower, after all if you are heading off to infinity and beyond you are definitely going on a journey!

The charm is tied onto 7mm satin ribbon, and I added a few polka dot buttons to the card front as well.
