Girlie card


This is a commissioned girlie card to be given to a granddaughter. The picture on the left is one that I found free on the internet. The picture on the right and the flowers were from an old Kanban kit. The sentiments were put on to labels made with a todo cross hatch die. The Happy Birthday at the top was punched through the card blank and a piece of red card was put across the card underneath.



This is for:

Paru  July: birthday
Cutie pie 113: here come the girls
International art & soul 13: dies
Simon says Monday: you've got the edge (the punched top)
Tuesday throwdown 353: black & white + 1 other colour
Double D: black & white with a pop of colour
Daisy chain 10: floral
Pile it on 132: something beginning with S: sassy
City crafter: something beginning with S: sassy

Tulips in summer?


I know tulips aren't seasonal atm, although it seems nowadays you can get almost anything regardless of the season.

Anyway, papers, tulips and swirl from an Anna Griffin kit long ago. I love the paper on the left - it's embossed with something that feels like velvet. I used a piece of sticky ribbon to join the two papers.



This is for:

Paru  July: birthday
Fab n funky 360: use a patterned paper
Daisy chain 10: floral
Ike's world 93: anything goes + option: bunch of kindness
Pile it on 132: something beginning with S: swirls

For a special lady on her 90th birthday


I was commissioned to make this card by a lady who is a retired Salvation Army officer, for her to send to someone she trained with for her 90th birthday - hence the picture of the flag with the date of when they were Ambassadors together. I used papers etc from the Crafter's Companion Downton Abbey kit, including one of those lovely domed metal and glass framed picture that matches the main one and the background paper is very glittery (if that's a word - lol!).

Sorry it's such a dark picture ... and the card has gone now,. so I can't take another.
