Posting a new card

Hi readers,

I am happy to share another card I made.  I know I had to wait until the person who it was going to had received it and confirmed the reception of it before I posted it.  Now that she has and some more cards coming in the next few days, have been received so, I can post away!

My card for today is another card made with the Sue Wilson's Gemini dies by the name of Orion CED4404.  Using a gate card model again as I think it makes lovely as well as elegant cards.


Paper background I used was found on Pinterest.  I am on Pinterest under Nicole G once there, look under my Papers you will find a big collection of papers to print when you need it.

The flowers I made from scratch from a die by Marianne Designs, unfortunately I don't have the name of it nor do I have the # of it.  It has 2 layers and I had used a pearl spray direct to cardstock prior to making the flowers.  I used stamens that were originally white, I used my Copic R29 red and added a white opaque dot on top of each stamens.
This is a Ruby Anniversary card to a wonderful friend in England.  Rose I wish you and Michael a very happy Anniversary.
Next post with be another card to share.  Come back soon!



  1. It is a gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous card, Nikky. The flowers, the dies and the papers used are so beautiful..... Unfortunately, the photograph does not show just how gorgeous this card really is. Thank you Nikky for taking the time and trouble for making and sending it to me.

We will open it again, when it is our Special Day on the 24th of May......and it will be treasured for a very long time.......thank you once again, my lovely Flowery Friend......xxxxxxxx
