It's The Life In Your Years

 

Not the years in your life that count....

Hello, I just wanted to share this Custom Order with you. I was asked to make an Easel fold, vintage style 70th birthday card with matching box for a close family friend of my Mam's.

 

So I used this beautiful image from "Pion" and cut her out with my nesties, I made an embossed panel (Roses embossing folder) to stick her onto and to also hid a hidden sentiment label. The design papers are "Bo Bunny Rose Cafe Garden" my new all time faves, i have every colour and they are simply beautiful. 

 

The flowers are from "The Ribbon Girl", the pearls and the sparkly no: 70 is from my local craft shop "Haven Crafts". The little cream bows have been in my stash for ages and the resin heart and flowers are from "Live Love Crafts".

 

The lace and diamante pearl are from "The Ribbon Girl", and i must order me some more lol. The two quotations are "Penny Black" stamps and all other wording was computer generated.

 

big thank you to "Craftwork Cards" as this is where I order my card boxes from.

I have really enjoyed making this card, thank you for looking.

Mothers Day Card

 

Hello Everyone,
another post from me, this is a custom order card that i have been working on for Mother's Day. I have used some old design papers, think they are "Do Crafts" and my labels dies.


 

 I have used Some lace trim from "The Ribbon Girl" and some bead trim from my local craft shop. The butterflies were cut with my dies and i used my roses embossing folder too. Sentiments were computer generated. I also used my "Marianne Creatable Bird Cage Die".

 

I have stamped and coloured "Tilda with Peony" with my Derwent Inktense Pencils and fussy cut her and mounted her on foam pads to add depth to card. I also made a matching gift box for the card. 

A nice change from square cards.

A New Month and A New Card


Hello People,
Apologies again for my serious lack of blogging, but when not working my spare time has been taken up with house renovations, house is now finished and on the market so more crafty time allowed. Anyway to anyone still reading this, here is my latest make.


A Custom ordered Easel Fold card with matching gift box. I used dovecraft papers and a mo manning digi. I use string pearls and ribbons from my stash and the little charm is from "The Ribbon Girl" as are the flowers/



The sentiment and name were computer generated and stickled to within an inch of their life. The numbers were cut with die cuts. I also used my roses embossing folder.



The image was fussy cut and coloured with "Derwent Inktense Pencils".

Thanks for stopping by.
