Beautiful Blossom - Milk & Gold

Hello Crafters

It's a gorgeous Saturday so I thought I'd show you a gorgeous variation on the Snowflakes Card I made on TV the other day,..

If I'm honest, I actually made this one first, then thought it would be fab as a Christmas card too :-)

This is one of the advantages of having the frame stamps, from any of my stamp collections,.. they are soooo useful and so many ways to use them!

This card was made using my Blossom Collection and using just Milk cardstock and gold detail embossing powder... simple, yet really rather nice together :-)

Can I just tell you, before I forget,

I will be doing a demo day at Chloe's Creative Cards on August 14th (day before my birthday!)

Chloe is my mate so I am really looking forward to checking out how tidy her work space is in there (ha ha)

If you are in or can get to Durham, here is the address:
Unit 42 Dragonville Industrial Park, Dragon Lane, Durham, DH1 2XU

It's funny isn't it,.. to think this card started as just plain Milk cardstock and gold embossing powder,... 
I think this is why I love crafting,.. blank canvas every time :-)

Here is what I used (with links to them on my www in case you 'need' them)
Milk Foundations Cardstock
Sentimentally Yours Blossom Large Circle Frame Stamp
Sentimentally Yours Blossom Sentiment Banners Stamps
Delicate Daisies - Complete Petals - Dies by Sue Wilson
Delicate Fronds Dies by Sue Wilson

Swirling Hearts Embossing Folder by Sue Wilson
Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder
Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels - Iced Snow
(As always, I only use Cosmic Shimmer dries clear PVA gluePerfect Medium pad and an anti static bag)

Anyhoo,.. here is the card :-)

  21. Good afternoon Phill,
    Now it is the simplicity of you using just the gold embossing powder and the cream card and seeing what it can be turned into that i love. Your card is gorgeous Phill, so stylish and beautiful in just the one colour with the gold embossing showing up it's beauty. You birthday is the day after my son Rory who was 3 weeks late and came along 7 years after his sister who is the 18th and came along 3 weeks early, talk about a number 7 bus and two come along in the one pay packet, lol. Thank you for your stunning card flower,
    crafty hugs
