Congratulations Card

Hi there, everyone!

Today, I’d like to show you a congratulations card I have recently made for someone close to my heart, a dear friend of mine. She made some changes in her professional life and we are very proud of her. So, a great reason once more to make her something special. Something that will accompany our wishes.

With this card I used a different technique for the background. I’ve got a very nice floral stencil, the 6” x 6″ Doily Flower made by Heidi Swapp, from one of my favourite shops in UK. Set it on a watercolour paper and sprayed it with green and blue ink. Trimmed it to fit the card base and the first layer of the cover which was a pink card I chose from my craft stash.

I added 2 strips of card, one pink and one cream, onto the bottom part of the cover. Then, I went for some nice pastel blue organza ribbon to give a soft and elegant look. The ‘Congratulations’ sentiment was stamped with Artiste pigment ink – pearlescent dusky rose on a watercolour tag. I also tied the ribbon into a bow to add a bit of extra dimension.


Some pink and pearl gems were added too, to give a little sparkle and to complete the dimension of the card.

Black & White Congratulations Card

Lili Psarudakis, a dear friend of mine has published her first book ‘Face Care’, a book with recipes and advice on natural homemade cosmetics.

What I love most is that it is thought and written for all skin types and it has great advice on how to use essential oils, clay, how to prepare creams, lotions and many more. It also includes some important advice for skin care during pregnancy.

And here’s the card I made for her on this occasion. It matches the colours of her book.
