Guest Crafter–Maisie

The other day I received a vey special “Thank you” card for some bits and pieces I sent Maisie,  who you will remember was the creator of the beautiful embellished pink mirror I featured a couple of weeks ago ….

Memory Box–Madeleine Bird Card

This card measures 4ins x 4ins and is made using an hand cut ivory linen card blank.
Madeleine Bird Card Memory BoxCan I say I love this card?  There is nothing much to it really, I think it is just the colours ….. put together using scraps of paper with patterns that match the dimensions of the bird. To add a little depth I have used self adhesive foam pads behind the birds body and wing.
I’ve used my Stampin Up Bird punch for the branch and a tiny daisy Papermania punch for the flowers, embellished with a few clear flat backed gems and a bit of faux stitching.  Done and dusted!
