Anyways, I know I've seriously been lacking in posting lately (I'm so sorry!) but things have been completely crazy with organizing my blog candy, updating my blog design, keeping up with work and school, and also finding time to craft. To top it all off, my wi-fi has been giving me a hard time lately so that makes it that much harder to post and comment. My next couple of posts I'll be playing "card catch-up" and sharing with you some cards I made a while back and am just now finding the time to post.
This is an anniversary card I made for fun about a month or so ago. I realized I hadn't used my paisley embossing folder and wanted to give it a try - and luckily I had some paisley paper that matched perfectly! I really love the colors on the card, it's not a color combo that I've seen used too often. And maroon and gold are my favorite colors (also the colors of my bedroom!) so that's another reason I was pleased with this card.
I tried to get a close-up of the paisley border, but it didn't work as well as I hoped it would. :( It does however, give a nice close-up of the die cut, which is from the vintage pack for Cuttlebug.
To make the card, I used:
- Maroon and cream colored cardstock
- Gold metallic paper
- Gold ribbon
- Paisley paper
- 'happy anniversary' stamp in orange ink
- 'Perfectly Paisley' embossing folder and a corner die cut from the vintage package
- Decorative scissors
Thanks so much for reading and bearing with me lately! Have an awesome weekend! :)
