Gorjuss card

Good Morning,
Just a quicky today!
I made this card for a school friend of my twin daughters,
I used a Gorjuss Girl Decoupage from Do crafts as the main focal point, I then decided to sit her on a fence which is the Heartfelt Creations Lace Border Die, I coloured the front of the card with Distress ink (to look like a garden) and then added some paper roses and some green Marianne Flourishes.
I cut a small Spellbinder to add my sentiment and that's about it, simple, quick, thankfully she loved it!
Exciting day today as we gave Prize Giving at school and my daughter has an ICT award, proud mum!
Hugs to you all,

Good Morning,
Today's card is from a while ago and not photographed too well,it is all red and white so not sure why it looks cream! It is the card I made for my good friend Caroline and her now husband Stuart!
I was lucky enough to be asked to make her wedding invitations too, although I underestimated what a mammoth task it would be and the monotony of making the same thing over and over again almost drove me mad, although I am pretty much almost there anyway !
I used an 8x8 card, which you can probably gather by now is my favourite! I used a Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch and Spellbinders Grand Squares,  I used two sizes of the squares to make a frame and added the die cut border to the frame, I embossed the background with a Couture Creations folder,  I can't recall the name, I will check and add it later! I printed out the sentiment and cut it out with Spellbinders Labels 10. I added it on too of the frame and decorated the corners with flowers from my stash and a little bow! Looking back it's not one of my better cards, but we all improve with time!
Thank you for stopping by today,
Hugs and snuggles

Fathers day!

Good Morning
Today's card is one I made for my Daughter's boyfriend to give to his dad.
I used some My Minds Eye papers, the card ended being about 6x6. I used a Nellie Snellen Five Point Star Die to cut three stars in black card and then layer up with matching MME papers.
I used a Die-Namics Fishtail stax dies to cut the sentiment and little sentiments at the side (love you lots, is what josh always says to his dad)! I didn't have a envelope the right size so I had to make a box using the Craftersn Companion Box maker, I put a piece of acetate in the front of the box to make a window!
Josh's dad told me he loved the card and he has kept all the cards that I have made for Josh to give him!
thanks for stopping by today,
