Anniversary Card

The card for today is an anniversary card that I made for some friends. The image is from Hunkydory's Little Book of Love which I cut down using Spellbinders Oval Nesties. The backing card and paper are from my stash. The heart was from a Lawn Fawn die and the sentiment is from Hunkydory's Book of Sentiments. 

I followed the sketch over on Clair & Sharni Get Crafty for this months challenge. 

This is the sketch

Maid of Honour Card

My son and his fiancee are getting married next year and I have been asked to do the invites which I can't wait to do (I think!!!). Jodie is obsessed with Alice in Wonderland so that is going to be the theme of the wedding. 

She wanted to ask her sister to be her Matron of Honour and asked me if I could make a card for her. She wanted to incorporate Alice is we could. She knew what she wanted to say to her and this is what we came up with. The image was from the internet and is copyright free. The Alice in Wonderland font was downloaded from the internet and free. 

Jodie made up a 'Maid of Honour' box for her sister which included face mask, calming candle and a mini bottle of prosecco for her to drink when Jodie becomes bridezilla!! :-)

Workshop Card - 8th March

Bit behind with posting my workshop cards..opps!! This card is from Clair & Sharni's workshop on 8th March. 

They have now moved premises and have their own studio is smaller than the hall we were previously in but more friendly and personal.

We only made 1 card this time but a very pretty card. An accordion card made using the CRAFTER'S COMPANION DIESIRE Square Accordion Card Die Set. The flowers are Build-a-Flower Coral Charm stamp and dies from Altenew and were stamped using Altenew Sweet Dreams ink cubes. The border was stamped using CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS Pine Twig die set.

Got a bonus to as Clair & Sharni were selling the accordion dies we used and fairest way was to put everyone that wanted them in a hat and pull out a name and I was one of the winners so I will pick up the die next class.

50th Birthday Card

It was my friends brother's 50th birthday at the weekend and here is the card that I made him. His partner arranged a surprise party for him at the bowling rink which was lots of fun. 

I made an eclipse card for him with the number 50. 7x7 card blank, black linen card, backing paper was from a pack I bought from Lidl. He loves clocks so I thought this was appropriate. The number dies are Stampin Up large number framelits, wording is Spellbinders Victorian letters. The numbers are backed with black funky foam.
