*This is my first card after the holidays, I tend to take a bit of time off the blog during the holidays as I do work retail and the holidays can be quite a busy time for me.
This is the card I made for my sister this past November. I really wanted to make her something special, as we don’t get to see each other very often. So I thought I would make her a card showing some of the things we’ve done together the last few times we’ve been together. The card includes Salted Caramel Martinis, Blueberry tea, Wine, (are you seeing a theme here 🍸☕️🥂, hanging at the beach and ….. she loves plants 🌱 and gives me cuttings that I generally kill ☠️. I also made sure to use a pretty colour combo and some bling.
All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.
The main colours that I used are below, the cardstock is from Stampin up, not shown in this picture is the Champagne Foil also from Stampin Up. The bottom paper shown is from My Minds Eye. The rest of the colours for some of the charms were just pulled from scrap bin.
To create this card I used Karen Burnistons Circle Tagbook die set. I have photos and written directions for reference but I recommend watching her video if want to try this card it is at the bottom of her product page, linked above
To make all the die cut decorations I used Karen Burnistons Party Border Blends, Wine Charms, Beach Charms, Happy Hour Charms, Coffee Charms, and the decorator pieces from the Circle Tag book set which was used to make the card base.
The “Happy Birthday” and Sis” dies I bought second hand and were unlabelled, sorry not sure of designer/manufacturer.
The gems used below are retired Stampin Up gems, and the bows are from the Gift Pivot Panel dieset and the heart die is from the Knight and Dragon dieset. When adding the border blends to the inside I made sure to cover the seam from when I added the extra piece of paper when I covered where the mechanism is attached to the card.
