Good morning all, two posts in two days… that’s a record for me I think!
I just made this card over the weekend so I thought I’d share it quickly before it is lost on my laptop with all the others!
I had two silver wedding anniversary cards to do recently. I thought I’d try something different now I have the time so I set off with good intentions and lots of ideas in my head for fancy creations using masks and silver, lace and embossing powder. I cut a big ‘25’ on my cricut and layered it up, I tried white on white and some of my Sue Wilson dies that had never seen the light of day. I added so many embellishments that they wouldn’t stand up and just looked a mess, they all went in the bin. Why do they never turn out the same as the picture in your head?
Needless to say I ran out of time so had to resort back to a tried and tested cute card which I made in about 20 minutes before we left for the party which was a ceilidh (pronounced caylee). I’ve never been to one before and it was a great evening, it’s hilarious when everyone gets the steps wrong and you’re all over the place but we had such a good laugh – I’ve told Keith I want one for our silver anniversary but I think one was maybe enough for him (I have a while to work at it!!)
This is another discontinued Art Pad image, my friend and her hubbie both love gardening so this was perfect - I’ll be sorry when I’ve used them all as they are so handy.
The papers are from the lovely Mr & Mrs collection which can now be downloaded at NitWits
You can’t really see, it’s a terrible picture that I snapped as an afterthought, but it’s a cute 4x4 card so you can make a matching envelope from an 8x8 sheet which is a nice touch (in fact my friend commented on the envelope rather than the card!)
The centre square is stuck on with foam pads and the image is curved for a bit of dimension too and stuck with pinflair.
The tiny flowers are a Memory Box die, I thought it was called ‘petit fleur’ but when I googled that it didn’t bring up anything so it must be wrong - if anyone wants to know I’ll check, just let me know in a comment
Right, I’d better get my chores done, I was just watching the lady painting trays on Hochanda while I wrote this post so now I’m itching to get all my mdf things out that I’ve bought at shows and never used – another good intention!!
Have a good Monday crafty friends
