Happy Anniversary!

Here's a card which turned out exactly how I planned it which is a first in my own cardmaking experience!  I needed to make a card for a dear friend of mine for her silver wedding anniversary and wanted to make it quite special because I was her only Bridesmaid.


This is quite a large card for me - 8" x 8" so for the background I used some silver mirricard and a plain piece of white card which I embossed with a Sue Wilson embossing folder and then sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.  The main image is LOTV taken from one of their art pads and layered this onto a Tattered Lace die which again, had been covered in Spray and Sparkle. Then added some silver mesh, white tulle and crushed silk ribbon together with a couple of silver pins and a dazzler.  Flowers were also given the Spray & Sparkle treatment (I love that stuff!) and finally added a sentiment from Paper Smooches together with some sticky gems.  Must admit I was really pleased with the end result!

I'm entering this card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge "Anything Goes".

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
