This is another card I made for my Sister's 60th from her Husband

I started with a plain deckled edge white A4 card. I matt & layered a piece of lilac gingham card on to a piece of Papermania "Soothing Heather" textured cardstock. The dogs & the bunting are stamps from Little Claire which I coloured in with promarkers. I added some gems & dies some flowers then finished it off by adding some pearly swirls from creative expressions. Below is my version of an insert which I think finishes it off.

A special card for my Sister's 60th Birthday!


The base card is from Kanban. The backing papers are from Docrafts Papermania Capsule Collection. The dog topper is from the cute puppy collection by Kraftyhands & I mounted on to cream card which I cut with the Spellbinder A2 Filigree Delight die. The sentiment is firstly mounted on to cream card which was cut using Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two & then mounted on to brown card which I cut with Spellbinders Labels Six. The ribbon threader was cut using a Marianne Die so I cut cream card & threaded brown spotty ribbon through it & attached a diamante bone shape charm. I made a feature of the word sister & added some gems.

Here is a Birthday Card for Crafting Friend Gill

I used a stepper card from Craftwork Cards. The Lillies are a stamp by Stampendous & coloured in with promarkers. After stamping the Lillies & colouring them in I used Spellbinders Labels Eight to cut them first then layered them on to shimmer textured cardstock which I cut using Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. The shapes at the side were cut using a die from Spellbinders Moroccan Accents. The flowers are from my stash along with the butterfly, glittered ribbon & pearls. The Happy Birthday is a die cut from Craftwork cards.

A Birthday card for my friend Lin

The image & one of the pink papers on this card are from the Pampered Pets range by Docrafts. The dottie paper is something I had in my stash. I used Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Five & Labels Four for matting & layering the shapes. The corners were cut using a die from Spellbinders Parisian Accents. Inside the card I used Labels Four & made a frame just for something different.

The beach huts on the other card are stamps from Little Claire then coloured in with promarkers. The looped edge was done using a Martha Stewart punch.

A Get Well Card for my friend Gill


The base card made from pure Kraft Card. Cut at a slight angle to resemble a flower pot. I used the Standard Flower Dies from Xcut & cut different sizes then layered them up. I made a square bracket & attached it to the top of the card so I had somewhere to attach the flowers. I embellished the front with a piece of kraft card to make rim of the pot & used some floral washi tape for ribbon & bow. Finished of with the sentiment & a couple of butterflies.
