Sorry I have not posted for a while but I have been hard at work in the Craft room making lots of projects to show you. This week it is my Aunt's birthday and I wanted to make her a special card.
I am also entering it in the Lilli of the valley Monthley Challenge : Anything Goes,and
the Cutie Pie challenge : CHALLENGE #56CUTE WITH EMBELLISHMENT BINGO
also Penny Black and more : Anything goes
So wish me luck.
I decided to go for a step easle card for a change and because it folds compleatley flat for the post.The stamp is from the lovely range from Lilly of the valley as are the papers. I just had to make a gift box to protect it on its journey and to make it extra special. As it is an easel card it lies flat in the box.
I just love the colours in this pad they blend so well together the only problem is choseing which of them to use. I distressed the edges with a little Tim Holtz disress ink in weathered wood which seems to go very well with this collection.
I stamped some more hats onto the patterned paper and cut them out, adding a little colour in promarkers to give them some detail.
I added some matching Lilac flowers on the left hand side of the image.
Finally I decorated the gift box with matching papers and used the fancy circle die again as a focal point. I used the cut out bits to add a scroll to the corners. All finished and ready to send off for a lovely lady's birthday.
Bye for now Maria
