RUBY WEDDING CARD




I love making A4 easel cards BIG is better! I was asked to make a special ruby wedding card for a customer and here is what I came up with.
I used spellbinder dies and paper roses with ribbons and gems, it took me only 1 hour to make the card and matching envelope as the mojo was in full flow, I was scrap booking with doilies & large circle dies,which is why I think this card came about so quickly. It made a change to make a red card but I had lot's of fun staying in the warmth as it's freezing in Cornwall right now BBBRRRRRR
hope you having a crafty day and staying warm.

A Some Odd Eyed girl card



Oh happy days are gone! quick post as I am having child not wanting to go to school issues again today GGGRRRRR! I made this card as a commission and went pink crazy! the digi is adorable she is called Alice-Mae and she's too cute! I coloured her with Copics and drenched her in glitter { oh why not!}
computer generated the sentiment, used some seam binding and a pearl flower centre for my bow!
the paper is Serafinas Primavera and to highlight the flowers I followed the pearl theme and put small ones for the centres.
well I am off to phone the school [that does nothing] oh joy
have a wonderful day!

A saturated canary card


OK so I broke out the pink paper [shock] it's Prima's romance novel and I love it!
I used the saturated canary digi image called 'Pricillapie' isn't she adorable! I coloured her using copics.
The circular sentiment is from LOTV 'dreamy days' set. The flower is fabric and I split it down to fit the card and popped a wild orchid crafts pearl brad in the centre, also used a metal butterfly, 20mm, 15mm roses from the foundation packs. The lace is from diestodiesfor And I love it!
I used a heart doiley and heart brad from my stash.
I love how it turned out what do you think?

have a wonderful evening!
