Pure Blossoms for an Elegant Card
Hi, it's Diane with a few cards to share. The season suddenly seems to be changing - there is an autumnal feel in the air here in Massachusetts. I imagine that is why I chose these colors to make a quick and easy birthday card.
I have been using the Pure Blossoms gem flowers on many of my cards lately. They are a quick and easy way to add sparkle and elegance to a card.
For this 5 x 7 inch card I used a piece of patterned paper from Creative Memories "Reminisce" collection and some green and amber pure blossoms. Adding a Gradient Gem Sticker to the flower center gives a perfect finishing touch.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is cut from the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge. When you cut letters this small it is easy to misplace the dot for the "i" but a gem sticker makes a good replacement! You can find more details about this card on my blog, Capadia Designs, at THIS POST.
I also used the Pure Blossoms in two shades of pink on this card. The card is very simple but the flowers make it special. You can get more details about this card on my blog at THIS POST.
Here is one more card that features the Pure Blossoms largest size flower.
Just one large flower in the center of the medallion creates a lovely focal point on this simple embossed card. The medallion is from the Cricut Reminisce Accents cartridge. More details about this card can be found HERE.
The Pure Blossoms provide a wonderful and easy way to enhance any card. They come in a variety of colors and are very reasonably priced so it is easy to keep an assortment on hand for making a beautiful card quickly and easily.
