Story of Elegance

I’m always in need of a birthday card  because everyone I know has one!   So, I decided I’d put the new Honey Bee stamp set and Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper to use in crafting a couple of birthday cards.  As the title suggests, I made one for a female and one for a male.

Before I show you the cards, you’ve got to take a look at this paper.   See?    This paper is loaded with gold foil accents and I just love that!

Everywhere that you see gold in these papers, it’s gold foil.  The picture really doesn’t do this paper justice.  They are lovely.  What’s even more lovely is the fact that you can get this paper FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  You’ll get 12 sheets.  2 each of 6 double-sided designs.  And of course these papers are acid and lignin free.

A closer look

The beautiful DSP does all the work for this card.  I punched the sentiment tag with our Tailored Tag punch and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add a little depth.   Our retired Gold Mini Sequin trim adds just a touch of texture.  While it is no longer available you can still snag the Silver Mini Sequin Trim from the Clearance Rack.  If you love it, better grab it before it’s gone!   This button will take you right to my shop.  All Clearance Rack items are while supplies last!

A birthday card for her

This card uses snips of the Golden Honey Specialty DSP on a backdrop of leaves created with our Layered Leaves embossing folder.  I love the soft look of this card created by embellishing the sentiment.  I used he Pretty Label punch, Leaf punch, Silver metallic thread and Pearl basic jewels.
