Sparkly Cards (1)

Last Saturday I was going through my card making magazines and I found this freebie:


2 sheets of backing paper and 2 sheets with the coordinated embellishments to make your own cards. I especially liked the mint green ones so I started with them first. The label on the packaging says you can make at least 3 cards. Did they mean 3 out of each colour set or 3 altogether? No idea. Eventually, I ended up with 9 - 5 mint green cards and 4 pink ones :) As I tend to jazz things up a bit, I've added some of my stuff too - sparkly adhesive gems, punched laces, ribbons, peel offs and some backing papers. I like a bit of sparkle, and you?



The papers and card toppers themselves are very ornamental so I tried not to overdo the cards. I like the shiny mirror-like elements on them. The sparkly gems have been added to accentuate this shiny jewel effect.





For a change, the leafy green background and ribbons have been chosen for the garden-themed card topper.






More sparkly cards coming soon :)

  3. Mint green and pink are such perfect Spring colors for anything from cards to clothing. I especially love the card with the garden. All of those cute veggies!! Who does not love that Peter Rabbit garden look for the perfect card?
