Alveston Making Gifts & Cards Class

Our card for this class was created using another of the new sets called "For Everything".  It is such a pretty set complete with 11 stamps which are all beautiful and very feminine.  The set comes with two greetings, the one used below "friendship" and the other being "Thanks for everything you do".

Our colour combo was taken from the fantastic Colour Coach which you can find on Page 81 of the catalogue.  It helps you put together custom colour schemes and has suggestions for colour combinations which are just lovely.  So here I used Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry and Baja Breeze (the Colour Coach suggested I use Tempting Turquoise but I wanted to show one of the new colours so chose Baja Breeze which worked as well)

We used the new Scallop Trim Border Punch which is so pretty, you can even by the corner punch which will enable you to create decorative panels along with the Border Punch.

We used some of the gorgeous Basic Pearls on the flower centres and to the bottom left of the card.

The background was stamped with the "Sanded" stamp which I have become attached to recently, it gives such a lovely effect.

We finished by added a piece of the 5/8" Satin Ribbon in Marina Mist which co-ordinated beautifully with the other colours.  If you are liking the ribbon, why not join in with my October Share, get 1 1/2 metres of 8 colours of the 5/8" Satin Ribbon for just £6.25 so thats 12 metres in total.
