One for the Girls.

Over on Wild Orchid Challenges this week the theme is One for the Girls.

I've produced 2 cards with the toppers shown earlier for my grandaughters’ birthdays next month. One is going to be 6 and the other 9 years old.

DSC01402 I’ve used an A4 sheet of cardstock and folded it on the DL line to give a square shortfall card. The front has then been layered with pale green paper, to match the shoes and pink glitter card to create the full width required. The edges have been crinkle cut and the green paper decorated with the same punch which was used on the topper.DSC01415

Scalloped and plain ovals cut with Nesties have been put on the glitter card and decorated with a peel-off number. The greeting is a peel-off and card candy finishes the card along with a pink crystal in the tiara.

 DSC01412This 2nd one has been cut the same but due to a mistake with the glue has more layers and a few border peel-offs, because of this i’ve not been able to fit a number on. Gold coloured card has been used to match the colouring on the topper.  I've used a small peel-off greeting and 4  gems on the card as well as the gem in the tiara.

Card & Book

I made this card and little book for Lynn’s birthday.

Since the schools finished for the holidays she seemed to have nothing but rain so I thought this image quite appropriate for her. Thinking back i’m almost certain I used an umbrella image last year for her. DSC01254

It’s an easel type card held up with blue gems (raindrops)I’ve also used fabric flowers and spotty braid. The image, which is a new stamp but from where I can’t remember, is coloured with Promarkers.

This is the book I made for her, it’s only about 4 inches square and fastens together with spotty organza ribbon. The papers are K & Co but I don’t know the stamp as it was borrowed from Kaz.


The pages are cut, folded and glued back to back with a stiffer card for the cover. DSC01258DSC01259
