World Card Making Day Stampin' Up! Blog Hop!

Hello!



Join me in celebrating World Card Making Day today the 1st of October 2016! What better way to celebrate this special day, than with a World Card Making Day Stampin' Up! Blog Hop! My name is Melodie Viljoen and I am posting from Australia! I love surprising someone with a handmade card! Not sure yet who will receive this one...


Flowers and a heart to make someone smile... might just add some chocolate!




Heat embossed greetings add extra interest to the flower petals...




My Product List




Notes

  • For the background I used one of Stampin' Up1 new Seasonal Decorative Masks with embossing paste, tinted with the beautiful Green, Pear Pizzazz.
  • To add extra interest to the flower petals I added heat embossed words with our White Stampin' Emboss powder! Really pretty!
  • The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is also from Stampin' Up!'s new Holiday Catalogue - yes I used the Presents & Pinecones DSP for my base layer! 
I hope you are lucky enough to have some time to create your own cards on this very special card making day! 

Let me know what you think! I would love to read your comments!

Take care!
