Happy New Year and how exciting to begin again with a clean slate and lots of ideas for fun things to make this year. Our team is still sharing our ideas with Becca's glimmer plates this month so be sure and check out the rest of our teams ideas too. There are so many beautiful plates to use it's hard to decide which one to use!!
So for my sweet card today i decided to combine the new "Foil Flowers" with the "Elegant Occasion Sentiments" to make a gorgeous birthday card to send to my family sister for her birthday. My base colors were pink and ivory so i combined the light pink foil on pink paper for the flowers and used gold foil for the Happy Birthday sentiment and the accents. Pink and gold are one of my favorite combinations so this was easy to put together.
And to give it more depth i used an old texture plate from Spellbinders and also Becca's Hemstitch Oval to cut the sentiment out with which made it super feminine and added another pretty detail to it.
The flowers I actually cut in half to use on both sides of the oval and tucked them under and layered other pieces over the top edges. It's less to do and still gives it a balanced look.
And all the layers i attached with 3D Foam dots on an ivory card base. Simple and easy peasy!!
So that's it for my first post of the year but i promise lots of fun inspiration in the months ahead with all the new things Becca Feeken is coming out with this year!!
