New baby

I made this card for the Inspirational challenge on the Craftersreunited forum which i'm a member of. The theme this month of April was for a baby and there was a sketch to get inspiration from .....so this is my entry.

The image is from a sheet of coloured images from "Lili of the Valley" the greeting is a stamp also from a set from Lili of the Valley. The papers were from Kanban and the little bit of lace you can see is from my stash!

Thanks for looking!

New fold for me!

I made this card at a friends house and she showed me how to do this different fold (well it is to me) :-) lol!

I think it was Kanban papers we used and (as you can see) we made two folds ...the backing gold paper was on the inside back and we put acetate on the inside of the front fold ... i press out gold butterflies for up the side and a message just off the centre, i also added some gold crystal gems up the side of the acetate and top and bottom of the card!

Another Hunkydory card!

I love Hunkydory products so bought a kit a few months ago and everytime i need a quick card i turn to it. Here is the latest one i've made. Some of the backing sheets have the image on the left hand side, so when they are folded it is on the back. On this one i cut the sheet in two and used the half with the image on as a front and used Glamour Dust to add sparkle to the lovely image of  the little girl. I used a message from a sheet of toppers included and a little bow to finish off .

I think it looks so sweet ....what do you think ?

A big thank you to Trace ...i'm sure you will agree they are beautiful!

More cards for MEN!

Here are some more cards i have made for the men in our lives. The first one is a made using a free design sheet...the message is a computerised one.

Second card is a digital download, i used promarkers to colour the glass and a bit of glamour dust added to the edges and also the froth on the top. The card itself was a Kanban card that i have had for ages, the message was computerised with a few pieces of candy added to the sides from Craftwork cards.
