Greta's playday 14th Feb 2012

On Tuesday, Greta invited us to her place for a play day. There was 6 of us in total including Greta and we had a great day. It was a good day of laughs, chat, drinking tea, eating a lovely lunch and oh yeah a bit of card making :-).

Greta had 2 projects for us and Debs and Elaine both brought projects for us to do also. Here are the cards that I made.

This is a C6 card. Blue backing paper was stuck onto gold mirri card. The topper was from a kit and when you pull the tab it shows another picture. Took some thinking on how to get it to work but got there in the end. A bit of ribbon and card candy was added to finish it off.

I love the colours of this card and Greta sorted it just for me cause I have a thing about blue. The flowers are beautiful and I definitely need to get me some of the big flowers. :-). The backing papers are also gorgeous. The card was done from a sketch, I just added the squares and rectangles in a different way. Ribbon and card candy were added to finish it off. I may add a greeting at a later date.

This is a large 8 x 8 card. I know it's a Christmas one but you can never be too early to start them!! Black and green card were matted onto the card. The patterned paper is actually a serviette wrapped around card to strengthen it. 2 of the poinsettias are decoupaged. They were cut out of another serviette and stuck on acetate to strengthen them. A piece of ribbon was wrapped round. The greeting was stamped and cut using nesties. A beautiful card, easy to do but very elegant.

This is Elaine's card. She had cut out all the layers for us and stamped the image. I coloured the image using promarkers. Elaine had used flower soft for the grass but I have just coloured it. The writing was freehand. Pleased with how it turned out!
Thanks for reading
