Hi blogging buddies....how are we all? well we are well in to June now and I hate to depress you but it will soon be the longest day!...what happened to sitting in the garden on these long summer nights??
My mum turned 94 on Saturday and for those that follow my blog, she loved her card.
I can at last blog a card that I made for a friends birthday that she now has received. It is a 'flowers in a box' card made with the lovely Craftwork Cards papers Cottage Garden.
The flowers were from my stash, some stamped and coloured with inks and the butterflies were die cut from Spellbinders packaging and a lot of glitter and Stickles added for the sparkle.The butterfly die is a Spellbinders die and I put it through the Calibur about 4 times to get the outline to cut. The centre bits didn't cut, they just embossed as I think the packaging is perhaps a bit tough!, but I was pleased with how they turned out.
I made a box to take my card as I put so much in it I didn't want to crush it in to an envelope.
I really enjoyed making this and I love the way they look when they are done.
OK well a busy day, busy week in fact so must press on.
Take care everyone and thank you for stopping by in your busy lives, and if you leave me a comment that would make me a very happy lady :)
Enjoy whatever you are doing.
