Black,White & Gold


Sharing a CAS card today !

Front View
I have used white handmade paper for card base .I cut one more panel slightly smaller than base and punched holes randomly on bottom left and right corners.Then I punched confetti from golden glitter paper and black card-stock.glued the black ones on bottom center of panel between the punched holes and the glittery one on card base such that when the panel is layered over base the golden confetti are visible through punched holes (I hope I have not confused you ;) )

Side view

I have cut two butterflies one from golden glitter paper and another one slightly smaller from vellum and layered them .

Another side

Before attaching the butterfly I made a loop out of black silk thread and glued it  .Then I  flickered black n gold paint to complete the bg. Stamped the sentiment on vellum banner and added a glittery banner.

Envelope

I also made a coordinating envelope for the card .I used butter-paper (that comes as packing with shirts).I folded the  sheet keeping some golden glitter confetti between .Flickered paint over it ,made the envelope and tied it with golden thread.

Supplies used :
Papers :Golden glitter paper,handmade paper,vellum
Clear Stamp set : Fiskars Simple Expressions

Hello friends ! Today I have a floral card to share with you all .I quilled after a loooong time ! Thanks to ongoing challenges :)

side view
When it comes  to quiling I like doing 3d miniature more than flowers.While creating this card I realized how much practice I need !! Not even a single coil resembled other :( ..

Side view
For this card I  cut strips from a textured paper and adhered them on the base with foam tape.

Enjoy Summer !

front view
Hello friends ! Enjoying the weather ? Its getting hot here at my place .How I wish we had a beach nearby !! At-least I can have it on my card :D !

Side view
Its a simple card with all hand drawing and water coloring. For the background I drew lines of varying width with water color pencils and then went over it with wet brush for water color effect.Sketched a simple beach scene  on water color paper and colored with water color pencils.Matted the panel on white base and attached the panel with foam dots on card base. Finished off with a twine and (handwritten)sentiment banner. let me show you some pics of  how I created it .

steps
Its Simple but  Is it clean enough to fit in CAS style ? Tell me :)

Reused :
Old invite for layer (below water color paper) and the twine is from a hair accessory .
