Some pretty cards for my family & friends

Hello and Happy New Year to you all.

Miriam here and I am really excited and a little nervous about joining the 2016 Imaginarium Team and have a couple of cards to share with you today.

First is this feminine card I created for a family member.

I started by layering three different embossed pieces of cardstock for my base.

I used Nats new leaves design for the feature - I first painted them white then lightly brushed them with Bundled Sage Distress Paint and finally gave them a spray with silver glitter dust.
They came up looking just gorgeous.

I finished the card off with some wire thread and muslin with the addition of a few flowers!

This next card was made for a friend ... someone who means the world to me - it needed to be simple yet effective ... I think it works!

I started by coating the Art Deco shape with white and sprinkled on a few micro beads.

Keeping it simple allowed the stamped phrase to be the focus - which is important!


So I hope that you like my two cards ...
Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment.

Have a great day
