January has been a busy month in the craft room.  I had two cards to make, one for a very good friend and one for my sister-in-law.  Below are the two cards I made using some old stock I have and some of the new products from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

 The base card is Whisper White Thick Cardstock 210mm x 148mm and scored at 105mm.  The pick cardstock is some old stock I had laying around, it is very similar to Peekaboo Pink.  It measures 142mm x 99mm and then I embossed it using one of my favourite embossing folders, Tufted, just love the quilted look it gives.  I then added some pearls.... just on the parts that would be seen.  The glimmer leaf is punched out using the Leaf punch and Myths & Magic Glimmer paper which you still can purchase through the clearance rack.  The label and sentiment are from the Stitched All Around Bundle... this has been a favourite of mine and have used it on a few projects.  The roses are stamped from the Cake Soirée stamp set and cut out using the Sweet Cake Framelits.  I used Olive Green for the leaves and stamped using Lovely Lipstick.  The butterflies are from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  The Bundle is called Butterfly Gala and it includes a stamp set and a duet punch.  It is a lovely set and the punch and butterfly stamps match up perfectly.  I embossed the butterflies with gold embossing powder and coloured them in using my Lovely Lipstick Blender pens in the dark and light.  I used dimensionals for the sentiment, the roses and butterflies.

This is the card I sent to my girlfriend.  I added the J using the Gold Glimmer paper and the Large Letters Framelits to personalise it.

The card above is the same as the one at the top except I used the new embossing folder out of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue called the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.   This is such a beautiful embossing folder, I can see it being used for many of my projects.  I placed the pearls in the centre of the flowers.

To personalise it for my sister-in-law I added the K using again the Gold Glimmer paper and the Large Letters Framelits.
