The Best is Yet to Come


Today I want to share a card I made a few weeks ago for a very good friend, Val. She’s also a talented crafter and I thought I would surprise her with a card I made just for her.

You’ll recognise the lovely flower from Birthday Blooms, all in Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi tones… I made the stripey banner with the stripes mask. The sentiment is from “Best Thoughts”.

Sweet Friend

Hi there!

I had a little time yesterday evening to make a card… I hope I’ll soon have more time to craft, I really miss it!

I wanted to play along with the Colour Me…! challenge, even though it pushed me out of my comfort zone. Calypso Coral is a colour I like, but don’t use very often, so I thought this would be interesting 🙂


Here is my card :

Shimmer and Shine - Sweet Friend


I used a retired set from Stampin’Up, You Are Loved, and indeed I love it. I stamped the flower three times in gold with a Stamp-a-ma-jig to make a kind of rose bush and then again in Calypso Coral. I fussy cut the flowers and adhered them on the gold ones with foam tape to add extra dimension.

The gold flowers are also addhered with foam tape on a tag I hand made on Very Vanilla Cardstock. I just rounded the corner with a punch, made a hole on top and added faux-stitching with a gold gel pen. The ribbons are from my stash.

The sentiment comes from the same set, I stamped it on a fish tail banner I hand cut. I added pearls coloured with alcohol markers to fit the colour scheme.

Here is the inside :

I love the gold and coral together… Hope you like it too 🙂
