I've done it again!


Last month I showed a card here that I made by re-purposing a previous card that I've made. Well, I have to confess that I've done it again!! And this time it will stay like this because it's a card that was commissioned by a friend for a silver wedding anniversary. I was told that the couple both like cakes and I was asked to try and include a church on the card - I hope this is 'job done'!

So this is the final card that I hope will meet the requirements. The glittery, slightly holographic, church is one that I've had for ages, as is the little 25th square. The little group of cakes is a stamp from a little Docrafts set I've had for ages, but haven't used before, inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver powder. I think I like this final version.

As ever, very difficult to get a photo of a card that has glittery, shiny things on it, heat embossing and the blue strips top and bottom are actually a deep blue mirror card, although you only see a hint of that here.

Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 49


This is my design card for today's Fan-tastic Tuesday challenge 49 - please have a look at the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and join in the fun.

For my card I used Bugaboo Stamps AKV baby stroller, colouring with spectrum noir and copic pens. I mounted the image on to a snippet piece of mirror card and added tag, sentiments etc that have been in my 'baby' box for quite some time and then some more of those lovely felt fabric buttons from Poundland.

This gorgeous photo inspiration for City crafter 225 to me suggests a baby card:
