Good Morning Ladies,
I will start by apologising for the poor quality photograph of today's card, this was the rushed 18th card I was asked to make for Sophie and Lucy's friend Beth, I had virtually just finished the card and box and was tying a bow to finish the box when Sophie needed her hair braiding 'Now' so I left it to Lucy to take a photo! That's all I am going to say! She has never had to photograph a card for a blog in her defence, so she can be forgiven.
I will also add that Beth loved her card, apparently having it boxed really does make it special!
I used 'Fresh Florals' Designer series paper to make the card along with the "Number of Years' stamp set and it's matching dies.
I covered my 5x7 base card with one side of the DSP and then used it's pretty reverse side to add a centre panel, I edged this panel with Whisper White card using the 'Ribbon Border Punch'.
I then die cut a rectangle slightly smaller than my floral panel and die cut the numbers 18 out of the centre, I then used the stamp set to add 'Happy' to the centre of the 1 and the 'TH' beside the 8, I also used flower stamp from 'Bloomin Heart' stamp set to add detail to the topper.
I used this floral stamp on the insert of the card too.
It was quite a quick and simple design but I think it worked well, with a change of colours and detail stamp this card design would work for any age or gender.
Not much else to report as I have had another day frustratingly spent in my bed as I felt so unwell, the Hot/Cold sweats I can cope with but the vomitting is just too much, any small activity is leaving me totally breathless and light-headed, I think whatever this bug is it's affecting my heart palpitations, making them much worse and more frequent!
Anyway enough whinging from me, there are people in a lot worse state!
I hope that you are all ok,
Sending my 'arms length' love and hugs, (to prevent germs) !!
