Craft Queen - Cashmere Dame Cards

Hi Ladies,
I have had to create a few cards for friends and family's birthdays of late... so I used some of the yummy goodies I have in my stash from Craft Queen.  I felt like using some vibrant colours on my cards and pulled out the Cashmere Dame 6" paper pad from Glitz Design, some ribbons and embellies to inspire me.
Eighteen x 2
Brittany had an 18th birthday for her twin friends, so I created similar cards for the both of them using the Cashmere Dame pad for my background, with a bit of chevron masking tape around the borders and one of my favs... the Kaiser Secret Admirer doily collectables as the background for the chipboard numbers.  I stamped thhe chipboard with the doily stam from the Prima set.  The glitter flowers stickers are from my stash.

Cherry on Top
With Valentine's Day in mind I created this sweet card using some of  the cherry papers from the Cashmere Dame paper pad which went perfectly with the  Collectables Turtle Dove cherry die cut.  A pretty piece of stitched satin ribbon and a cute wooden button for some finishing touches.
Happy Birthday
This card was made for my SIL's birthday, again using the Cashmere Dame paper pad.  The yellow mini rosette ribbon and yellow paper roses were swiped with a touch of gesso.

Other Craft Queen materials used:   Kaiser Secret Admirer Doily Collectables, Tim Holtz Distress Ink - fired brick and black soot, Glimmer mist - red velvet, jute tiny twine red,  wooden button,

Other Materials Used:  Fancy That leaf flourish die, Cuttlebug label die, alpha stamps, October Afternoon alpha stickers, American Crafts chipboard alphas, glitter flower stickers, paper doily, gesso,

Thanks for stopping by.
