All Occasion Card

My greeting card tin is getting a little short of all occasions cards i.e. cards where I can simply
add a greeting suitable for the occasion (as opposed to general birthday cards)
To out it right I have made a few of these today.
Chris (sis-in-law) has been over today and she made 5 cards whilst I only managed 4!
I'll show you two of them.

This first one is cased from my Stampin Up sister and fellow Julies' Jems team member, Julie Wade.
You will have seen that she does a weekly colour combo challenge for us every week -
Wades Weekly Warm Up or WWWU as we call it.
This week she had challenged us to use the Convention goodies that we received in November
(these were basically gold items) along with black.
She shared the card that I have cased (with her permission of course) 
above, with a slight alteration to the flower centres

And here is another one where I have swapped the colours around somewhat
i.e. black for white and white for black.
Don't know which one I like the best.
I have left them without a sentiment, and will just add one as and when I send the card.
I Used Basic Black, Whisper White and Brushed Gold card stock.
Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder for heat embossing the flowers
which were stamped with Flower Shop stamp set and cut with Pansy Punch
and Petite Petals with matching punch. 
 The Lattice Bigz die was used with the Brushed gold card.
The flower centres were punched with the Itty Bitty Circle punch and a 1/4" circle punch
in Brushed Gold card and shaped.


  1. Beautiful as usual Kate. Love the flowers and clean look.
