Fab Fashionista Birthday

I can now share a birthday card that I made last month for a family birthday using 
more papers from the Bright Lights Fabulous Fashionista Mini Cardmaking Kit by Opulence by Design Crafts.

For this card, I used a white 8 x 8-inch card blank and the Bright Lights Fabulous Fashionista Mini Cardmaking Kit by Opulence by Design Crafts The PDF - 5-page digital download includes 2 beautiful toppers, 6 sentiments and 4 fabulous designer backing papers that could be printed onto cardstock and used as card blanks. 

On one of my layers, I printed the beautiful floral design paper onto a textured satin paper that I had in my stash, it was a shame to cover most of it up, as it now had a luxurious feel to it. This is just one of the advantages of being able to choose what you print off from your download files using the mediums of your choice.

I also made some flowers using a mix of purple & lemon Pansies with the pink & lilac Violas by Opulence by Design Crafts. and not forgetting the Pansy Leaf which is a great foliage to pop in with any flower arrangement that you are using.

These flowers can resized to fit all your projects, which is something I also like to do rather than having to find something to fill a space in a project.

I've added a little glossy accents to the centre of the flowers as they really didn't need anything else for this project.

Sometimes for occasion cards, I carry the backing paper through onto the back and for this card I have also made a matching box.

I do think this is such a beautiful cardmaking kit and I love this topper. From my own cardstock, I have added pink pearlescent and white glossy card.

These papers are just perfect to add a touch of glitter to using your Stickles glitter glue or or glitter shimmer pens.

If you would like to check out Amanda's YouTube Channel for cardmaking, flower making and inspirational craft videos  you can find her gallery here:  

I have already spotted my next kit that I am looking forward to using!

Have a great week,  whatever you have planned for yourself.

Happy crafting
