I hope you have had a good weekend....the boys are back at school next week so we finally started to get round to all of those chores that we have been putting off all summer :) However, I still found time to make a few cards.
First up is a green and gold creation using the colour combo from this week's Less is More Challenge. I couldn't come up with anything other than a festive card with these colours:
I die cut a lovely Memory Box bauble out of the white card panel and popped it up over some gold glitter card. The gold bow is snipped from another die cut and I combined it with a sentiment from Clearly Besotted. The green elements come from the scattering of pearls and dark green under the white panel.
Also I wanted to join in with CASology where the cue card is Write which put me in mind of SSS's happy mail stamps. I masked and stamped the envelopes in pastel colours and the sentiment in dark grey over the top with a scattering of grey die cut hearts.
I hope you have had the chance to get crafting this weekend :)
Thanks for stopping by,
This is so very lovely. Your masked tumbling pastel envelopes are just perfect, and make a nice backdrop for the bits of your sentiment. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.ReplyDelete
That festive Christmas card is so pretty in green and gold! And I love the subtle, masked envelopes of the second card!ReplyDelete
Sarah, both cards are awesome and perfectly CAS! I really love the pastel envelopes so perfectly masked behind the bold sentiment...I must Pin this immediately! :) Thanks for playing along at CASology this week!ReplyDelete

That's such a beautiful, shimmery ornament, Sarah ... rich and sparkly and lovely! Delicious CAS little letters ... love the look of the subtle colours with the dark accents! Hugs, Anita :)ReplyDelete
Ooooh wowee, not seen that bauble die before, it looks awesome with the gold placed behind it. Such a crisp and clean design too, and I like your choice of deep green.ReplyDelete

Your ornament is lovely, Sarah, but I'm head over heels about the pastel letters behind the sentiment. Pinned for future reference. :)ReplyDelete
I love that bauble die and really must buy it at some stage. Looks beautiful with that fine gold bow on top. And more perfect masking in your second card, your a pro with that technique!ReplyDelete
Love that elegant and both cards look fab Sarah!ReplyDelete
