Faux Silk and Paper Beads


I sure have had a lot of use from my Just Believe stampset – it was the first one I got from Stampin’ Up!s 2010 -2011 Idea Book and Catalogue.

Here I’ve used it in the faux silk technique, and made paper beads to embellish the side. (I used the tutorials designed by Bronwyn Eastley from Just Add Ink for the faux silk and paper beads.) This is a gatefold card, made using Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery and Rose Red cardstock, inks and DSP.

Here is the inside:

And here’s the coordinating envelope:

 This card is for my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary – TODAY! It’s also my sister and brother-in-law’s 15th wedding anniversary. Happy anniversary to you all! xxoo

    Lovely card. This technique looks similar to one in the latest Impressions mag. Must have a go. Love the beads.

    This remarkable work worthy to be featured in some book! I just love the paper beads and the colors they look like porcelain. Thank you for sharing this with me.

    I do like this card Bron. I too, love this set and I like the idea of threading your beads with the narrow ribbon:)

    The co-ordinating beads are lovely. Very clever.
