Birthday Wishes

Good morning! Today I have a “birthday wishes” card for you! The paper is gorgeous and is from the newly re-designed Lemoncraft “House of Roses” set. Instead of making my own flowers for this one, I used a variety of white, pink and pink/white mulberry flowers, with foliage from Cheery Lynn dies. This card is full of sweet, old fashioned beauty and is available in my Etsy shop, HydeParkHill.etsy.com!

Supplies and directions are below! Have a beautiful day!

Enjoy!

Fairy Tale Wedding

Good morning Monday!

Do you have many weddings to attend this summer? Here is a beautiful wedding card for you! I just love this horse and carriage die template from Tattered Lace! This card is not difficult, but it does take a bit of time because of all the layers. Enjoy!

Happy Crafting!
