Of All the Beads Inspiration

Of All the Beads is a custom handmade jewelry business where I purchase some of my jewelry. Of All the Beads is located in the Washington DC area and will create any jewelry designs or fix those priceless heirlooms. Hazel, the owner is fabulous and will work with you to fit your design needs! I am using one of my recent purchases as color inspiration to create the card below. Although my card does not do the necklace any justice, I thought as color inspiration, it was close enough!

This tangerine turquoise necklace is quite a spectacle. It adds much needed class to any outfit. The necklace features a sterling silver magnetic clasp.


This card is not my typical style, but I thought it was unique! I stamped the right side of the card with rose buds in orange ink (hard to see in the picture, unless you 'blow it up'). I layered pattern card stock on top of yellow and brown card stock to the card base. I added a tab stamped with "Birthday Wishes" to the side and tied a ribbon around the main focal point. "From all of us" was printed on the computer on vanilla card stock and matted on brown card stock. I placed three brads on the left side and popped it off the page. I rounded the top right corner of the card for the more 'office' feel because this was a card to a co-worker from a lot of other co-workers!
