What could be a better card to a gentle bride for her simple elegant wedding than a card with Camellia? I love to mix monochromatic colors with a touch of accent color, it is simple but not boring.

The flower is in cream with a dash of green, sitting on top of a pure white cotton card to bring out the softness of the cream color. To elaborate the celebration spirit yet stay within the simple elegant theme, a warmer cream card with champagne shimmer was added.
The card was as soft and sweet as the soft-spoken bride.

Greeting was pressed blank on another small piece of card to create layer and subtle statement without being too loud.

Finally, the card got a personal stamp from me.

Sweet as a cupcake

Over the weekend I had to create a birthday card to celebrate the first milestone birthday of a little girl named Chloe, she is such a sweet baby, always smiling, giggling and playful.

As I was trying to come up with a theme that would better describe her personality, I thought of a cupcake. Not only I love cupcakes personally, but I thought she is just as adorable, fun and little as a cupcake!

A little fuzzy cupcake was perfect to take center stage, it's as cuddly as the birthday girl. Bottom corners were rounded off to add a bit more fun flare.

The card itself measured 4 x 5.5, my personal favorite size for cards. It's not too small where you have limited space for creativity and not too big where it looks empty, or, often awkwardly spaced out. Plus, it's a perfect size to print on my Kelsey 5 x 8 press.
