Pastel Easel Card

Heyy all! I have been waiting to post this card since the day I made it. I don't plan my cards so I was really happy the way it came out. All the elements kind of gelled so well with each other.
The CS is from Pie Lane. The PP is from Paper Mania.  I have used a doily on the upper half and lined it with lace. The white flowers are also special as they are made from the same lace. The blue mulberry flowers are from Ujjwal's store. The peach colored cherry blossoms were actually on a tag that came along with a candle. I have reused them here.  The sentiment and flower stickers next to it is from Itsy Bitsy.
 Erum had illustrated how to make these flowers. You may like to have a look at her tutorial here...

Here's today's freebie for you. Do check out the rest in my Freebies/Templates section and link back to my blog in case you happen to use any of them.

Quilled Border Card 1

Hi All!! TGIF!! I just realised my previous post was the 250th post on my blog!! Wow! Celebrations are in order! I am planning a big one soon. So keep watching.....
I am here to post a card that (can you believe??) I started around this time of last year. Completed it in bits and pieces. Actually I struck upon this idea of making quilled borders on cards and started out with four cards together. Each has a slightly different border. Then the challenge was to embellish the center portion. So it kept lagging behind. So finally here I post the first of the series today.
The top paper is from a magazine. The "Friends" sentiment is a colored digi.
A closer look at the border.....
It's freebie time today. Since the card is about friends, I designed a sentiment on friendship. To download the image, right click and Save As. Keep checking my Freebies/Templates section for more and let me know your feedback about this.

Card set

I find it very useful to make two cards together at a time, similar in look but may be in different colors. This way you don't have to repeat the efforts needed to make that card and in the end you get two similar looking cards.
So here is a set I made few days back. It is a very simple card. I have used PPs on one side and punched them to string the ribbon. I then stamped the branch on top right and glued punched flowers on it. All the cards differ only in color and sentiment. The sentiment stamp is from Jovi's store.

Mother's Day Card

Hi All, sharing another Mother's Day card that I made yesterday. It is a really simple one. I wanted to weave the ribbons by punching holes in the card and use it on my card. So here is what I came up with. The sentiment is a digi. The PPs are from Mallika, which she had sent for a pattern papers swap. The ribbon is a local buy. I punched flowers in assorted colors to match the PP. Hope you like it :)

And the freebie for today is....

Card for Mom

Hey all! How are you doing? I had a rather dull weekend as I was quite unwell. So what better spending it making a card for the most special person in your life! Mother's day is around the corner. In India it falls on the second Sunday of May.
No prizes for guessing who the inspiration for this quilled lettering is!!! Yes, Dr. Pritesh!!! I am in awe of her work and more so when I met her in person last week in Pune. She is an amazing person: juggles so many things together at a time!! Thanks for sharing your wonderful work with us!! Do visit Pritesh's blog for a tute on quilled lettering.

Front view of the card. Size is 5x7"

Today's freebie is the font I used for this card. Have fun!!
