Memories

Hello blog fiends,

Today I am delighted to share a card with you as I am suffering from a serious attack of crafters’ block. For weeks I am struggling and tried every medicine for this serious issue but with no luck. Well I can’t say I am satisfied with my effort for today, but at least I have tried. I kept the layout of the card very basic as I couldn’t think of something else. I hand sewn the crystal beads on the lace and love the glitz it gave to the card. Hope you enjoy this one.

Challenges:

A close-up of the sentiment

A peep at the inside

Project details:

  • White cardstock
  • Prima designer paper “Romantique”
  • SiDesigns sentiment stamp by Amanda (Si954)
  • Prima paper flowers “Avon Rose Romantique”

  • Paper doily
  • Lace
  • Pearls
  • Wrinkled ribbon from May Arts “Silky Crush Antique Gold Ribbon”
  • Crystal beads

Thanks for visiting my blog, it is so much appreciated. Enjoy your day and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Sometimes the simplicity of a card is all that is necessary. You let the sentiment and adornments tell the story and it is an amazing card Amelia!
