Oh, It's Pretty!

Welcome back :)

Going back a couple of months, a friend of mine had a High Tea as part of her pre-marriage celebrations. You can see the card I made here. I also used the Sweet Nothings range, by Kaisercraft, for the two cards you can see here. I thought it was time to get this lovely range out again and get a "pretty pretty" fix.

Take a look...

Many of you would be familiar with the extra detail in Kaisercraft's Paper Pads - the embossing, gold detail etc. These extra features have made the Sweet Nothing's PP extra pretty. I used a lot of layering of these lovely papers which made for nice, strong and sturdy cards.

The detail on the inside is from one of the 12 x 12 papers in the range - a gorgeous shade of blue, still light enough to be written on.

And some paper flowers, pearl stamen, single pearls, and chiffon for the floral arrangement.

And a little cherub. 

Card stock by Kaisercraft "Fuzzy Peach".
Papers by Kaisercraft - both the Swrrt Nothings Paper Pad & some of the 12 x 12 papers.
Paper Flowers by Handmade Prima Flowers "Prima Fleur"
Rub-ons and Collectables by Kaisercraft "Sweet Nothings".
Ink by Versa Color "Sand Beige 151".
Small roses and stamen purchased at Paper Flourish.
Chiffon Ribbon by Celebrate.

Pretty, pretty..

I love how this rub-on turned out. It looks as though it's printed on the paper and I like how a couple of the petals "fall" onto the layer of paper below.
Pretty, pretty fix complete :)

These cards will be available at my Etsy store - The Little Purple Forest Shop - opening very soon! I'm just giving the floor a final sweep and it'll be ready ;)

Thanks for stopping by :)
