My first card features the new Old Country Roses set, illustrated by Claire Brennan. I cannot even tell you how happy I am to see Claire illustrating for Gina K! Like, jump up and down happy!
I wanted to create a simple, yet elegant card. I used the small cluster of roses to create a patterned background. I then added the sentiment as the focal image. I embellished with a couple of leafy die cuts (cut out with the Olive Branch die set) and a glittery, pink heart.
My next card features the Fine Feathers set, illustrated by Claire Brennan. For this card, I started by embossing three of the smaller feathers all over a piece of watercolor paper. I then watercolored the background using soft, pastel colors. I embossed the sentiment in gold on a piece of vellum and then stitched it onto my card.
My third card features the new Sophie Pig, illustrated by Beth Silaika. This sentiment, is hands down my favorite in the set! I giggle every time I see it! :-) I wanted something bright and fun, choosing colors that would hopefully bring a smile to the recipient :-)
