Female Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a birthday card I made for a good friend and neighbour,
who celebrated her birthday this week.

After cutting the trellis die on a separate piece of card, I glued a small piece
of patterned paper directly onto the card base to show behind the trellis.
After scoring the card and stamping the sentiment, I then used pieces of 3D foam strip
to raise the card above the patterned paper, and to allow the foliage and flowers to be added.

Trellis -  unbranded die from eBay
Spellbinders Die D-Lites - Sprigs

Spots and Stripes

Today I am sharing a masculine card which I have made for my 'spares box'.
The latest challenge over at Less is More is ONE LAYER: Spots and Stripes

I started by removing the rubber stamp from the wooden block and using my Misti,
I stamped the imaged 3 times moving the card along as I did so.
I then coloured each one with Promarkers, adding in the spots or the stripes.
Lastly I added the sentiment, then partially de-bossed a border around the ties.

Get Well Soon

I was asked by one of my good friends and neighbour if I could make a 'Get Well Soon' card
for his Mum, as she had recently broken her ankle.

Trying to find a free image on the internet of a female with her foot in a plaster cast
proved very difficult, but I did manage to find this image of the three flamingos which
I thought would be appropriate!

I am happy to report that he was pleased with it....I hope his Mum is too when she receives it!

The products I have used are:-
Couture Creations Embossing Folder - Tied Together
Die-Namics - Pierced Rectangles
Hougie Board
