Here's another really Special Card! It's using one of my favourite ever images by Mo Manning, a little girl with her cat - and of course, I had to make him white in memory of my much loved, much missed, little man Bertie.
Here's the inside, this time I used gentle light green butterflies and added more gems and Stickles to them (of course!). I found these corner dies in a Craft Shop and was really pleased, until I got home and used them and didn't realise they didn't cut them out completely, only cutting the corner of the paper and leaving it still attached! After much mumbling and turning the air a bit blue, I came up with the idea of cutting round them and loads of cramp later, had the final die cut that I needed. I've used them many times since doing this, and this time left these ones plain white, it suited it. I added another ticket sentiment which is on pearlised card, makes it look more special.
I did a different box for this one - a plain white box and used some acetate to cover the top of the card stuck down on one side. The box looked a little plain, so I added some ribbon around the edge with DST. It certainly improved it!
Here's another view of the inside of the card, I used some patterned vellum (a few sheets I found in a Bargain Section!) and used my first ever Distress Ink Pad on the edges of the punched card inside and also on the edges of the book like sides. Have got a new idea to try with the ink pad, so will let you all know how it goes!
I've been a crafter all my life, having put my hands to many different aspects of crafting, now it is time to share my cardmaking skills with you. I make cards for cancer charities and local hospices, it has affected many people I know, myself included, so I know how much it helps cancer patients. I hope you like my cards and please leave comments for me if you wish as I'd love to know what you think!
