Maroon and White Birthday Greetings


Hello to all my followers, friends and family popping in to read my Papermill Direct DT post.  Today I have some clean and simple birthday cards using maroon and white, classic colours for both wedding stationery and greetings cards.  Both the white linen and maroon card are from Papermill Direct and the 270gm maroon card is this week's special offer at at only £4.00 for a small box, check it out HERE.

These two cards were made using die cuts, white linen and maroon card.  The dies used are from Memory Box, the small butterflies were cut from the butterfly border.

The card below was made using Papermill white linen card and embossed maroon card, the shoe is stamped on acetate and glitter added to the reverse side to give the sparkle, a technique used some years ago which I thought I would try again, just so I can use up some of the fine glitter I've had for years and try out the fabulous shoe stamp again.

Above is a closer look at the glittery acetate shoe and embossing.  The stamp is Marabou Slipper from Impression Obsession.

Thank you for passing by and for any comments left, they are very much appreciated.

loving that funky shoe!!

Also love the contrast of the white diecuts against the maroon, giving a lovely elegant look to the cards. I may need to invest in some maroon card now.

Love those Maroon and white birthday die cut cards - fabulous. Love that sparkly shoe too - reminds me of the dressing up shoes we had as youngsters.

Love this colour combo. The butterfly border is beautiful and I love the embossed border either side of the shoe. This card looks lovely embossed. If I was a bit closer I would grab a box or two of this
