Richard Garay - Gold and Silver Full Bloom dies.

I thought I'd share the card I made for my Mum's birthday today. Given that time was short and I was still fighting off the lurgy I CASE'd the card on the back of the packaging of the Richard Garay Silver & Gold Full Bloom die set. 
I die cut the elements using various off cuts of matt and gloss silver and gold mirricard. The 80 was purchased at my local craft shop and was a quick way to add the birthday element as well as satisfying my Mum's love of bling. A few sequins finished the card. 
I've spent this week recouperating from my chest infection and so still haven't had any chance to craft or catch up. I'm off to the lovely Faye's copic colouring classes in Warrington this weekend so need to be recovered by then. Hope you're keeping warm and well, wherever you are x


  1. Hope you are on the mend and will make the course this weekend? What an eye catching card. What fabulous die cuts, love the matt and gloss of teh silver and gold and the bling from the 80....Bet your mum loved it? x

  2. Beautiful card, Cara, very elegant. I'm sure your Mum was thrilled to receive it.

    Hope you'll soon be fully recovered. Enjoy your Copic colouring class, looking forward to seeing what you produce. xx

  3. Really lovely card, the gold and silver do look great together, super dies.
    Glad to hear that you are recovering and hope that you ARE fit and well for Faye's class, she is a really lovely Lady I know you will enjoy it.
