90th Birthday Card For A Special Nan

This card is A5 in size and is made using ivory linen effect card and Papyrus font size 20.
90th Birthday card
This was a card specially ordered by a friend. The inner and outer frames are made using Nestabilities label dies cut on my Bigshot, both tools that I am guilty of not using often enough.
Stampin Up 2 Step Bird Punch
The bird and branches are made using my Stampin Up 2 Step Bird Punch, again a tool with endless possibilities, but not used enough by me.
The flowers are made using various sized daisy punches, with small flat backed pearls in the centre, quite fiddly and time consuming especially as I am not over keen on fluffing up all the flowers to finish the card!

A Surprise From Docrafts!

DoCrafts Goodie Bag
Oh my life, I never expected anything from the Docrafts Royal Wedding Card Challenge, I thought being in the July edition of Creativity Magazine was exciting enough, but look what the postman brought me this morning ….. how WONDERFUL, lots of bits, all from the latest ranges, including Tulip and Me To You plus a pack of Papermania 12 x 12 Kraft card which I have a feeling is going to be really big for making cards this Christmas …… well, it is going to be for me anyway, I just love Kraft card!
