Good Morning Ladies,
Rain Rain go away come again another day!! Flippin' heck did we have our share yesterday!! I was so heavy at one point that I had to turn my laptop volume to high, I dread to think how bad the floods are after that lot. Did you all get a soaking??
I had great fun yesterday afternoon trying to decided what cards to make for Sophie and Lucys's Birthday on Thursday (tomorrow). I ended up using Kraft kart as the base card and then went on to create a fun shaker card for each of them, it only took me about 4 hours and I thick 3 of them were browsing through Pinterest!
I will share their cards on tomorrow's blog, I am quite pleased with how they turned out thankfully! I have a New Baby card to make next for a friend of Becca's, its the one I made the Nappy Cake for oh and the Wedding card with the wellies on.
So today's card that works perfectly for this weeks TicTacToe using Categories: Neutrals/Ribbon/ Flowers.
Here is the description of how I made it:
So I folded an A4 piece of Kraft card in half to make an A5 card and used a piece of the A3 peaches and pinks Crafters Companion card that I have almost run out of! I wanted a script type look in the background and that piece worked beautifully, I inked around the edges and added it to my card base, I then layered the two ribbons up and placed them down the length of the card and die cut two of the wreaths and layered them for strength and attached them to my card front, adding foam pads for dimension. I decided to keep the colours fairly neutral and love how it turned out, all of those flowers that I have used are from a company called 'Little Birdie', both The Range and Hobbycraft stock them, they are really great quality flowers, so I arranged a few of them around my wreath frame. I die cut a flag style label and added 'With Love' which is made up of totally different die sets, I coloured it with Distress Oxide ink to match my flowers.
I added three more little flowers in the bottom corner of my card with some leaves, for some extra colour and interest.
I tied a bow with the hessian ribbon and attached it to the top of the ribbon border, I then had a bit of an issue as I had run out of the yellow flowers, so I found a similar shaped flower die and die cut a couple, coloured them with the same Distress Oxide ink as I used for the sentiment, I gave the flower a bit of a scrunch and popped a sparkle in the centre, it doesn't look too out of place does it?!
Thats all for today my lovely friends, I hope that you are all staying safe,
Love and hugs to all of you,
