Manor House Creations - Birthday Wishes

Hi Ladies,

Today I have a set of 3 birthday cards to share created for Manor House Creations using flowers and frames from the Spring 2013 Collection.

Enjoy Today
On my 1st card I layered pp's, an altered paper doily and a Pink Paisley doily diecut, which I embellished with a cluster of flowers.  I used the Ooh La La vintage flower and changed the pearl to match my colour scheme.  I also altered the cream minuette flower with touches of Glimmer Glam and Glaze, again to tie in with my colours.

Distressing edges, paint splats and machine stitching  are a few techniques to achieve a shabby chic feel to your cards.
MHC product:  Ooh la la, Minuettes - cream pink grey

Birthday Greetings
On this 2nd card I have used the ornate frame-scallop white backed with pp and embellished with cluster of flowers.   Just use a pencil to trace the inside of the frame as a template, cut 1/2cm around the pencil line, then adhere paper to back of frame with glue.

I altered the background with a stencil and texture paste, then flicked some Glimmer Glaze in 2 shades of green.  To create some softness and a shabby feel I smudges some of the texture paste over the stencilled design.
MHC product:  Floral Mix - Arielle, Mini Blush Roses - soft gold, Ornate Frames - scallop white

Happy Birthday

On my last card I have used the ornate frame-gothic white which I backed with paper, then added a greeting sticker.

I embellished the frame with the camel coloured flower from mixed floral tiffany pack, which I altered by pulling out the stamens and replacing with a wooden button topped with a pearl embellishment, and teamed with a soft gold tea rose.
