Small Pleasures

Morning Folks! Well, I am trying to make a few Christmas cards this weekend as some of my ladies have asked to do them.  It is a little difficult getting into Christmas mode but I am sure it won’t take long!  In the meantime, I have this card which is for another group of ladies who will be coming this week and don’t want to make Christmas cards!!!

Small Pleasures 001

This card measures 20cmx20cm.  The paper is from an 8″x8″ pad manufactured by g.c.d., called Ella Blue.   It is one of my favourites I have to admit, I love the blue and brown tones.  The layers become smaller by 5mm each time, the largest on the base layer being 18cmx18cm.  The central layer starts at 11cmx11cm and the 3 layers reduce at the same rate, 5mm each time.  I have flanked the central layer with Creative Expressions Lattice Heart Striplet, which I have cut to size.  The sentiment is stamped onto a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval and I have “hugged” this using Memory Box Tiffany Frame.  Underneath this I have cut three Spellbinders Labels 20, one in blue the other two in brown.  I have cut and layered the brown ones behind the blue in a drop shadow effect to add interest and dimension.  The leaves are Cheery Lynn Pine Branches and also the leaves which accompany Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.  The flowers are Heartfelt Creations Arianna, the matching die and stamp set.  I have used the stamens from this die set too and set them in the middle of each of the flowers.  The lace is from a local store and the ribbons and pearls are from my own collection.  Have a great weekend everyone, see you shortly!
