Graphic celebration card

Hi there!

Whenever I struggle to come up with an idea for a card, I find that taking the graphic route, usually work for me. That's exactly what I did today . I used inspiration from three lovely challenges and came up with this card :

I used 

  • Off center circles/rings cut from gold glitter card stock using my Silhouette cameo (you can use dies too of course!)
  • Squares and rectangle stencil (South-African brand - name unknown)
  • Distress oxide ink - Candied apple- Spiced marmalade- Fossilized amber
  • Celebrate die from Alex Syberia designs
  • Rhinestones 
  • Foam squares for dimension

Challenges :

Freshly made sketches - Sketch by Jen B
Less is more - C is for celebrate
Seize the birthday - Use Fall colors
Tic tac toe challenge - Middle row - Metallics- Free- Gems 

Thanks for visiting me today!

The gold glitter looks beatiful with the red, orange and yellow Hannelie, and the 'celebrate' die and little matching rhinestones finish it so well. You always come up with innovative designs and often with a geometric look and they always seem to work brilliantly. x

Fabulous! I love the modern graphic design on this card with the beautiful ombre effect on the stenciling and the pop of glitter and gold. Another stunner from you Hanielle and I can't imagine you ever being stuck to create a card. Thank you so much for sharing this beauty with us at LIM.

I find it hard to believe that you ever struggle with making a card, however, this is perfection. Thanks for playing at Seize the Birthday.

What a beauty Hannelie! I love the squares blended in those hot colours and the circles contrast beautifully with them and link the curvy sentiment in with your design. Thank you for coming to play with us at Tic Tac Toe! Vicky x

I don't do graphics, but you certainly make it look so easy and of course I love all the white space. Thank you for playing along with us at Seize the Birthday and using fall colors for your card!
