Nilla Box Card Set & Mini album Series #4

Morning Everybody,

Okay two things, 1) I am falling in love with these Retro Sketches and 2) I ADORE how this card came out!!

I do have intentions to send this card out to someone which is why I stamped a sentiment but I will make another one of these cards to include in this Nilla box set.

Oh my I love this card!  I backed all the paper with black card stock and tied a sheer black ribbon around the front.  I used a butterfly punch in lieu of rhinestones, which I think makes this card, and then stamped my sentiment and I was done.  So easy, so elegant, and WOW.  No I could probably go over the butterflies with a lil' wink of stella but I think I gonna keep it just as is.

So there you have it, card #4 in my Nilla Box series.  I will see you all on Monday for card #5; Have a great weekend everybody!!

Until next time...


What I used...
~ DCWV Bella Boutique Collection

Nilla Box Card Set & Mini album Series #3

Hi Everyone,

Today we are on to card #3 in this series.  And I found a sketch that I thought was so pretty by Retro Sketches that I had to use it.  Im also using the DCWV Bella Boutique/La Creme stack for this series.
So here is my card...

I didn't have a rounded doily so I used my paper punch for the background "doily" and to make the tab on the diamond patterned paper.  I outlined all the papers with a black Copic and used a Mini Spellbinders die for the sentiment area.  I left the sentiment area blank on this one as well but I think this would be a nice card for a graduate.  I think I will add some ivory pearls in the bottom left to finish it off as well.

What do you think, Pearls or No Pearls?

I didn't round the edges in this photo but I will go back and round them out too.

And there you have it, that's my card for today.  I will have card #4 to share with you on Friday.  

So until next time..
