...a couple of very quick and easy aperture cards, just for fun.

Here I've made a tissue flower using my scalloped nesties, and then folded a strip of it along the edge of the card to co-ordinate.

I've reversed the colour scheme to create a different look and used different Sizzix embossing folders for each card.

As you can see I'm now getting used to taking my photos against a dark background...thank goodness for anti-static dust cloths...

Right, I'm off to enjoy the beautiful Spring weather we have is absolutely gorgeous outside...not even windy, which is very rare for us here on the east coast!

Have a lovely day whatever you do!

A beautiful collection Sarita. I bought scalloped nesties this week, I must try one of those flowers they are stunning.
Enjoy the sunny weather. Have been told I can go into work today, so won't have to lose any more holiday.

these are lovely, the pleated edge looks beautiful. I'm sure if I tried that it would look like I'd screwed the tissue paper up!!


Dawn said...


Wow how eye catching are these!
Love the black and pink and what you have done with the tissue is gorgeous, so different

Have a great weekend

Another two classy cards Sarita! I love the pink tissue paper flowers. I made some using a nellie c, but I think I may give it a go with the round scollop nestie! Have a nice day in the sunshine xx

Wonde3rful creations Sarita, very classy! The acetate cards are fabulous too and I know how difficult they are to make so beautifully. Hope your feeling well and truly on the mend.

Love that pleated edge. Hope that you had a great day.

Karen said...

Simple? More like simply stunning! I think the strong graphic look is very sophisticated and love that you left it hot pink, black, and white. I also think the softness of the tissue is a really nice contrast to the strong and striking color combo!! :>

Hope you had a wonderful time enjoying your spring weather, Sarita! Hubby & my wee girl spent the day doing yardwork and planting some veggies & herbs. She had a blast! And then put a wide smile on my face when she brought me a little bouquet of flowers from the yard. :>

fabulous card and flower - the colours you have used contrast so well which makes the flower and fringe pop.
