Floral Shimmer

Hi everyone. Well I am so behind with everything at the moment. We had such a fabulous time celebrating my son's 5th birthday, with a party tea and a fabulous trip to Longleat. At the moment it is their Festival of Light and the displays are stunning:

Lots of inspiration to be had for sure!

Of course, being busy meant putting crafting and blogging to one side, so I didn't share any of my cards from last week's Hunkydory launch. The new collection is Floral Shimmer, which includes a beautiful  shimmery 8x8 paper pad, as well as the usual elements. I also got to use some pearlescent Adorable Scorable card which is gorgeous.

For this card I did some paper weaving using 1cm strips of paper from the paper pad:

I embossed some of the Adorable Scorable card with a Crafter's Companion folder before cutting a heart aperture. The backing paper is also from the 8x8 pad. I just love these colours and was really happy with how well the card embossed.

My next card is an acetate easel card:

I don't often use acetate but this was so easy to make, I really should use it more often.

Finally for today, one of my favourite cards using the topper set. I really like these soft colours:

Back to the Christmas cards now- I have few more to make as well as some birthday cards for weekend parties. Thank you for visiting today and for your lovely comments x
