Happy Australia Day!!!

I liked this card so much that I decided to CASE it myself!  This time I've used soft colours instead of the metallics.

I love all the foliage and pretty, soft flowers in this card.  The pearls add a soft luxury.
Before I started die-cutting, I put some Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back of the cardstock so that adhering the pieces to the card was a breeze!

I used a Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blend marker and the Color Lifter to darken the centres of the larger flowers and popped a Pearl Basic Jewel into centre of each flower.

I also made a pared down version by reducing the number of die cuts that I used and I like this one too!

I also love the simplicity of the pared down version of the card!
I darkened the centres of the flowers in the same way as before but added some of the pearlescent sequins from the Metallics Assortment instead of the pearls.  I think it gives a more modern look to the card.

The "amazing" is from the Celebrate You Thinlits dies which are FREE from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue with a product purchase of $180.  See my Specials & Promotions page for more details of the amazing Sale-A-Bration offers and opportunities until 31st March.

  1. Stephanie ~ Your cards are beautiful. I would have to vote for the more detailed one only because I am a 'sucker' for pearls. Hope all is well in your world! Hugs!
