Just completed a couple of cards for an order, the first is an anniversary card. I've been waiting for the chance to use this pretty paper, and it worked perfectly with the colour of the plain stuff which I found lurking next to it in my box.. I bought these large velvety roses some time ago only to find they have a polystyrene core which is way too bulky to use on cards. Yesterday I chopped the back off one and found it worked really well - I just hope I put enough tape on the back to stop it falling to bits! It seems ages since I put any beads on a card so I reverted to one of my fave trims and made a bead string for this one. Tiny heart brads and a heart charm to finish.
I've been putting off doing this one because I knew it was going to be tricky. The brief was "can you make a card that says something like; To my brother Daniel on his first birthday from your big sister Katie?"
Now that's a lot of stuff to get on the front of the card! Finally came up with this idea last night and started to get the bits together - too tired really and of course mucked some up so had to start again this morning.
I've just realised I've not got a number 1 - only the single candle on the cake - on there, so will have to figure out how to stick one on somehow before it goes.
The card is cream hammered and the papers are from one of the MM Cosmopolitan pads, along with a bit of Bazzill here and there. The cake is a QK die, but I altered it as it was a bit too wide for the design.
I've also got a few more Christmas Cards done. Still enjoying my fake chipboard (ie a bit of pretty paper stuck on card from empty cereal packets) - this time went for the pink/lilac/grey sahdes from the other papermania pack - ok, I couldn't decide which to get so I got both....:-)
This time as well as the parcels I've made baubles with a Bosskutz die. These worked quite well for the DCM's Little Extra Challenge for this week which is cards on the theme, or using the word SPARKLE, To get the sparkle I used glitter glue (me and loose glitter hate each other vehemently...) and some diamond dot thingies.
And finally, another SPARKLE card, but a Little-Girly birthday card for a change from all those Christmas ones. A few round silver and pink heart gems, plus plenty of glitter card to add the sparkle.
Wand and tiara dies are QK as is the Katie alphabet
