International Blog Highlights September!


It's that time of the month again! 

Each month I enter a handmade card I've designed into Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights. It's great to see crafters from all around the world take part. A great source of inspiration!

The theme is 'Thank You' - you can check out all of the thank you cards entered by clicking on the banner below.

If you like my card, please vote for me - you can find more information on how to vote further down this page.

Kylie Bertucci International Blog Highlights

To create my card, I've used the ever so useful Playful Alphabet dies to create a bold statement, die cutting the letters from Champagne Foil Sheets for that extra wow! 

I've used the Foam Adhesive Sheets to adhere the letters to the card -  they are a game changer! I've been hoarding them for a few weeks and I've just told myself to use them and I'm so glad I did! (I can buy more when they run out, right?) 


I've also used bits and pieces from the Peony Garden Suite - the Prized Peony stamp set and Peony Dies, the Elegant Faceted Gems and the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder.


The colours of my card are from the Peony Garden Suite. I decided on a Gray Granite card base and a Basic Gray layer. 

I picked up my Petal Pink Stampin' Blends to lightly colour in the flower and the Gray Granite Stampin' Blends to colour the twine. 

The twine is from the Flowers for Every Season combo pack (with the misty moonlight thread removed - leaving the white twine and silver thread).
