More Sea Glass Cards!

Posted on

Hello Friends!

Here are a couple more cards that I made with Sea Glass, the Close To My Heart Color of the Year.  The wedding card has a Sea Glass background embossed with the Confetti embossing folder.  I used Black and Gold for accent colors and made a series of banners with coordinating ribbons and shimmer trim.

For the next two cards, I used some cuts from the new Flower Market Cricut cartridge by Close To My Heart to create a jar of flowers.  I love the lacy trim that you can add to the jar which gives it that shabby chic vibe.  The background is embossed with the new Simple Chevron embossing folder.  Stamping different sentiments allows this card to be used for many occasions.

Cards with Sea Glass

Posted on

Hello Friends!

On Monday I posted a card for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge using the beautiful new Sea Glass color.  Close To My Heart has chosen Sea Glass as the Color of the Year and you will see it popping up in many of my projects.  Here are a couple of cards–Enjoy!

img_3898This card has Sea Glass combined with pieces of the gold overlays from the All About the Gold collection.  I wanted to make a very classy, elegant birthday card and I think the gold embossed sentiment, Gold Foil Tape and Gold Sequins really make it pop!  Plus the foil tape holds the overlays in place without worrying about adhesive showing through.

I wanted this second card to have a more rustic feel, so I used a woodgrain print from the Rustic Home collection as the background.  I used the tone on tone technique by stamping the flower images in Sea Glass ink onto the Sea Glass cardstock.  I added just a small strip of gold embossed velum and a couple of Gold Sequins to contrast with the country look of the woodgrain paper.

So, from classy geometric to country chic, you can see how Sea Glass works with many different styles.  I just LOVE it!!
