Just for you

Another card made yesterday using some of the C & C birthday kit, this time using another A4 card folded to make the A5 card blank, adding the 3 pieces of the picture and the sentiment of Best Wishes. On the left hand corner of the first piece of the topper it says 'just for you'. The foiling around the pieces of the topper and Best Wishes is silver (hard to see in the photos)

Two kittens

Two cards made just before Christmas - commissioned for a grandson's birthday and his partner's. They had recently welcome two kittens and I was asked to include them - I used the same digital, reversing one. 

On this card I added a couple of strips of offcuts and the letters for the name, adding the gold foiled birthday sentiment from Dovecraft and a couple of hearts - lovely and furry to touch.


On this card I added the striped cold foiled strip and the die cut circle (Spellbinder) on to which I had printed the sentiment, brushing with distress ink. Once again, I added a couple of hearts.

Happy Birthday, Great Grandson

Yesterday I was asked to make a card for a great grandson who is going to be 3 ... it was needed quickly, so I go out my Pooh Bear stuff and this is the result. Paper from a pad from Poundland and glittered circles from there too ... ages ago. Sentiments and the number from stash.

Happy Birthday, Daughter

Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world. Marilyn Monroe

A commissioned A5 birthday card for a daughter who loves handbags and shoes. The background piece of Anna Griffin card was stamped randomly using a Docrafts stamp inked with memento tuxedo black. The background card blank was made using a piece of A4 Hunkydory. The sentiment was generated on computer and printed, using an offcut of Hunkydory card, matted on to gold mirror card. The topper was from a Kanban kit and the flowers are textured rub ons.


Inside, using a piece of gold foiled Kanban paper:

To a special person

A card using a bricked background, various toppers from Crafter's Companion Downton Abbey collection (this seems to be lasting for ages and ages, not that I'm complaining) with the addition of some rub on flowers. All of these were mounted on to a background taken from a card blank.
