My niece Lauren was 18 last month and she had a Hawaiian themed party, so I thought that this pineapple cocktail would be ideal for her card. I added detail to the pineapple with Promarkers along with lots of glitter. The backing paper was a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine from last year. I topped the paper with a panel of white cardstock embossed with a swiss dots folder. I added the sentiment cut from glittercard and to finish a very pretty bloom with a gem in the centre. All of the elements were adhered with foam pads. A smattering of gems completes the card.
No.1 son Krishnan asked me to make a card for him & Sofia to give Lauren, and I decided to use a key (to the door) on this one. I know that you usually give the key to the door at 21 but I've seen plenty of '18' keys in High Street card shops, so why not?
I used Hunky Dory cardstock which was a freebie for the background and added a key cut from silver mirri and 'Lauren' & '18' cut from lilac glittercard shadowed with silver mirri. I added a sheer bow and blooms to the top of the key, along with a stamped sentiment. A smattering of gems completes the card.

I made a pizza-style box to put the card in.

Emily & Reza.........

 Hello all! Hope you are enjoying the blistering (yes, truly!) heatwave here. Would you believe that I've had my central heating on today? WHAAAT?!!!!!! Yes, really! My boiler went on the fritz on Saturday so it's been replaced today and they had to test that the radiators were working. It's amazing how much we take hot water on tap for granted until we don't have it!
Anyhoo, back to today's card. I made this card for Mary & Imroz to give to Rhea & Phil's friends Emily & Reza who got married a couple of weeks after Hari & Suzanne.I won't go into details about each pic as the card is made in exactly the same way as in the previous post. I used an ivy die to decorate the corners on the front of the card....
 ....and also used a die for the flourish behind the heart.....
 ...and inside the card........
....and used the same quote by Audrey Hepburn on the inside.
You really can't see the beautiful lavender colour palette that well in these pics, which is a shame as it's the loveliest colour. And of course, I made a box to put it in (see previous post)
Carts used:
Shaped panel- Elegant Edges
Bride & groom heart- Love Struck
Heart on flourish- George
E & R- Storybook

Suzanne & Hari....

When we went to Seattle a couple of years ago, we stayed with some very good friends whom my hubby has known since Medical School days. Their son Hari got married to his fiancée Suzanne last month, and sadly as we were not able to attend as hubby was in India, our friends Mary & Imroz took it out for us.
 The card base is an 8" square gatefold made with two 8" square cards adhered together. I embossed snow white Centura Pearl cardstock, matted it onto blue pearlised card and adhered it flat to the front of the card. I cut a shaped panel from patterned paper (downloaded from Pink Petticoat, and printed onto pearlised paper) and adhered to a blue shadow. The panel was then adhered to the front of the card on one side only. A filigree heart was cut from Centura Pearl with a blue blackout. It was adhered to the shaped panel with foam pads. The bride and groom initials, and some die-cut flourishes adorn the front of the card, along with a blue rose and sheer bow.... 
 ...here you can see the decorated flap underneath the panel.....

....and also inside the card, along with a smaller card adhered to the inside back of the card, which carries a computer generated sentiment....
 ....and inside the card I stamped a quote from Audrey Hepburn using a Sheena Douglass stamp...
...and because the card was bulky I made a pizza-style box to keep it safe.
The other box is for another wedding card that I made which I will show you next time.

It was my nephew Dan's wife Sarah's birthday last month. I had some Hunky Dory freebies that were particularly pretty and decided to use one of the papers and toppers for Sarah's card. I used an 8" square scalloped card for the base, then added the patterned cardstock,wrapped with pink velvet ribbon and matted onto gold mirri card, to the centre of the card front. I cut the gold border from the typewriter (remember those?!) image- because it was a different gold to the mirri- then mounted it onto gold mirri and adhered it to the left of the card front with foam pads. I added a sentiment from the freebie collection, along with 'SARAH' cut from pink glittercard shadowed with gold, using foam pads. A trio of pink pearls completes the card.

SARAH- Hannah Montana
