Hello there and a very happy Friday to you!! It's reveal day at Studio Calico, so if you're a subscriber you can bop over and snag this month's Antiquary kits if you haven't already! If you're not a subscriber, that link will work for you starting tonight at midnight. I chose to work with the Antiquary card kit, the Athens card add-on kit and the Rome add-on kit this month.
I've got quite a few cards to share with you again this month, so sit back, relax and (hopefully!) enjoy! :) On this first card, I also used a few dies from Papertrey Ink -- the Leaf Prints dies and the Wonderful Words: Birthday die.
This is all hand-cutting on the flowers and leaves and as for that striped background, I simply cut up the paper pad index sheet and used part of it as the background! Fun!
I did a bit of simple masking here (with Papertrey's limitless layers: 2 1/2" circle die and a piece of copy paper. I loved the blue/green version so much, I decided to make another in pink/red! :)
More Leaf Prints die cuts here.
These dies are the beautiful blooms II dies and the happiness in bloom leaves dies.
More leaf prints die cuts (do you see a pattern forming?) :) as well as the Parisian Lace Doily die.
I used the other part of the doily here, that I cut off of the previous card!
Another beautiful blooms II die set here, as well as the ruby rose dies for the leaves.
I should also point out that if you have a thing for sequins, you might want to head over and see all the new sequins in Studio Calico's shop today!
Mmmm....those mint green ones.....!
