Just a quick post today to show you some cards I have made recently.
This card was made for an order, for a Nana, who is just having her 100th birthday! As she was born in a lighthouse, the request was to have one on the card. It was enjoyable making this, and I rather like the blue and yellow. What a milestone to reach!
You could almost class this one as a monochromatic card - well, I'm saying it is! The base card is cream, put the navy card through the cuttlebug to emboss, used Martha Stewart punch for the border, of course Spellbinders dies and I used the Retro Flower punch to cut out the flower. Placed a small rose in the centre of the flower. The leaves are also a Spellbinders die.
This is a great way to use up a bit of your scrap card! Cut a piece of Jac paper and start sticking the card onto it, making sure the edges are very straight and butting them together carefully. Using a Spellbinders die cut out the shape you desire. I find it quite effective for kid's cards.
Another card similar to the previous one. Both these cards are coloured with copics. After I had completed attaching the coloured card onto the Jac paper, I then put it through the cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot folder. Just adds a little interest.
Well, happy crafting to you all, may you have a enjoyable weekend. Mine will be catching up on some housework!!
With blessings to you all,
