Good morning crafters, I had a busy day planned today but got out of bed at 11am!
I never lie in but have had trouble sleeping lately, I’ve been waking up because my knee was hurting in the night. It’s feeling a bit better now and I had a great night’s sleep, I obviously needed to catch up from the past couple of weeks! But, I don’t like to waste half a day on a Saturday, the weekends pass so quickly as it is!
This card is on the Ideas To Inspire blog today, we have got a Lili of the Valley column in 3 consecutive issues of Quick Cards magazine and I got to make a card for each feature
This is my card for the first column, it’s edition 119 which is on sale at the moment and I’ve used a fab James the Bear image from one of our Art Pads
It had to of course be a ‘quick card’ for the magazine and these pre-coloured images are so perfect, this one is from Furry Christmas
I used our Candles and Cake papers, the reds and greens in this collection are fab, perfect for Christmas cards I think
Here’s everything else I used;
Embossed white card
Spellbinders standard circles and lacey circles
Cheery Lynn small snowflakes
EK Success corner punch
Adirondack white paint dabber
You can’t really see on the picture but the sentiment is not stuck flat. I like to bring the ends in a bit so that the middle is raised like a banner, it’s a nice effect and adds a bit of dimension to your card
That’s about it from me I’d better get started on some of those jobs I had planned, need to be finished for when it’s X Factor time!
Have a great day everyone
