Welcome to my blog. I have a special card to share with you today.
I have had this idea brewing around in my head for probably around two years now on how to make my cards more friendly to all my bulky embellishments, yet I never gave it a try until now. It occured to me at Christmas time around two Christmases ago that my cards were becoming far too heavily embellished on the inside to look very graceful when they are closed....actually, they really didn't close, and I hated the way they looked like that as well as having difficulty fitting them into their envelopes properly, so as I pondered a solution to this problem, I never gave it life until now..... I have posted many pictures for you to see the difference in the way this card lays with a fully embellished inside with some very bulky roses. It looks just beautiful compared to the way the cards used to pop up in the front when I did this before. Now, don't ask me what took me so long to finally make this kind of a card. I guess I just don't always think ahead when I am creating. I do love the result though, and I know that I will be doing this again for my bulky cards. I hope that maybe this may help some of you that may have shared this same headache if you enjoy fancying up your card insides too.
Now, onto the details of this card:
I don't know if you have heard the news or not, but my good friend Priscilla of Priscillastyles has a great group on her new site here, and there is also an opportunity to get in on some freebie digis from some really awesome artists. I found this one over there, and of course with that adorable kitty on it had won my heart. I just had to make a card with that image. This particular digi is from Karen's Doodles. Thank you Karen's Doodles for this super cute image!!
I know that most of you already know that I have a passion for pinks, and I really took advantage of that on this card. I so love those beautiful pearl flourishes with the pink roses on them. The flourishes as well as the flowers for this card came from McMahon Five Designs...one of my FAVORITE places to shop!!
Don't you love how beautifully that this card lays when flat?
Thanks for visiting me for a spell today, and I hope you enjoyed your stay. Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think of my new style of card. I had so much fun making this one.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
