Here's the finished product you all saw on a previous WOYWW posting. I decided on a swing card and just made the measurements myself using the nestie I wanted to use as an idea of the size. I then cut it and hoped for the best as it was my last piece of pearlised card. Phew, it worked out OK!
Here it is flat so you can see what is on the front. I used a variety of things from my stash, peel offs (must've had a lot of 80th things going on as they've all gone now so you can only have a handmade card from me if you're under 80 or 90 and above now!!!) I did my usual trick of colouring the brads with nail varnish to suit the colour scheme better. Some pretty little stick on flowers instead of gems made the butterflies body a bit different to normal. My one and only flourish die came in useful again!
Here's the verse - this card is for Mum to give to her Sister, so the verse is just right for an 80th I think.
Hope you all like it and watch out for the next one. I seem to be making more complicated cards lately, so it takes me longer to do, hope you don't mind waiting!
Thought I'd add this card into the following challenges:
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!
