I thought I'd share a couple of cards I've made recently, this first card I made for my daughter. She was 14 on Thursday, where does the time fly! I used Naturals Ivory for the base (definitely one I go to most often), I then cut some butterflies in Naturals Ivory, Pretty in Pink and Wild Wasbi using the Sizzix Beautiful Wings embosslits die. I love this die, they are so pretty. She really liked it :)
I'm also entering this card in the Fab n Funky challenge #101 Anything goes
I also made the following card for someone who came to a stall I attended recently, the lady wanted some nice Thank You cards to send out after Christmas.
Again the base was Naturals Ivory, I stamped the swirl from the Trendy Trees set in Crumb Cake. I stamped the trees in Marina Mist and Crumb cake using my fabby Stamp-a-ma-jig onto Very Vanilla card stock. I lightly went around the edge with my Crumb Cake ink pad and added some Marina Mist grosgrain ribbon (retired but other colours are available). She was really pleased with the cards.
I also entering this card into the Creative Card Crew Monochromatic challenge
I hope everyone is having a good weekend, my daughter and I are off to Birmingham today for a girlie shopping day out, her birthday money is burning a hole in her pocket!
