My Special Friend

I have made a few of these frames previously and mounted them on cards but this time I decided to make a proper photo frame.  I knew straight away whose photo I wanted to put into it - it had to be my special friend, Tess.

The back of the frame is covered with with card and I added an extra piece to make it stand up on its own.

For Julie

Today I've been to Embsay Mill near Skipton to see Julie Hickey who was hosting a Candi party.  I took her this card from the cats!

The bunting was cut from embossed squares and has small punched daisies between each piece  I added lilac crystals to each daisy and used some small letter stickers to spell 'Julie'. 

At the bottom of the card I added a strip of paper, a die cut daisy, a punched scalloped circle and an In Circle message.

Variation on a Theme - Two

This time I die cut 3 three pink daisies and three lilac centres from the embossed squares.  I curled the petals and attached to the card with 2mm foam pads.

I used a panel of the striped paper for the rosette and when I cut the panel I included a narrow border of lilac which you can see around the outside edge of the flower.

This looks so different from yesterday's card and the Sweetheart Buds colour scheme looks so different without the green.

Variation on a Theme - One

I used Peas in a Pod products for this card - still love this colour scheme.  Tomorrow I'll post a card using a similar design to this but made with Sweetheart Buds.

For some reason this picture has a blue cast to it and I'm not sure why!

Happy Birthday

Another frame like yesterday's but today I have used Peas in a Pod.  There's a little more detail on today's card but I think it is mainly self-explanatory.

I just love the Sweet Pea collection, especially the Peas in a Pod colour combination.

For You

This was made with an 8 by 8 cream base card.  I cut a 6 by 6 frame and covered it with a sheet of the Sweetheart Buds paper then attached it to the main card with foam pads.

I cut three daisies from embossed squares and attached these to the frame along with some die cut Sweetheart Buds flowers.  The sentiment is a nesting message - the outside is glued flat and the inside is attached with foam pads.

Happy Birthday

Peas in a Pod and a rub on sentiment again but this time I used a pearlescent pale blue DL blank.  I cut a panel away from the front of the card so the daisies (die cut from three embossed squares) are overhanging the edge.

Happy Birthday

A DL card today made with Peas in a Pod.  I used three of the embossed squares for the background on a panel of matching paper and die cut daisies from another three.  The sentiment is a rub on.

Happy Birthday

A very simple card made using two of the Sweet Pea embossed squares.  I sanded the blue one and die cut a daisy from the other one.  The wording was done using rub ons.  I've used the same rub ons on a couple of other cards which I will post over the next two days.

Just for You for the Third Time

A gift bag made from a sheet of 12 by 12 paper.  I trimmed the top with some chocolate brown pearlescent card and added a sentiment from the It's a Wrap kit by Craftwork Cards.
