Thinking of You

Remembering a special friend on her birthday.

I've made this card using the gorgeous new Tea Dance Collection from Craftwork Cards.  Here's a close up to show the detail on the bloom.  I used an ink duster to add Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to all of the blooms and then sprayed with gold Spray and Sparkle.

If Friends were Flowers...

This is a card I made using the Black Magic Goody Box from Craftwork Cards and some of the Embossed White Flowers:

Here's a close up of the flower:

To make the flower I used two flowers layered on top of each other.  Each petal was scored down the centre and folded to give dimension. For the curly centre I used two the flowers with long petals, Cut down the centre of each petal and curled each piece, the left one in one direction and the right one in the other.  I then stuck one flower inside the other and attached to the bigger flowers.

You can't see from the image but I did spray the whole flower with silver Spray and Sparkle.

Julie's Delightful Daisies

I've had these for a while but haven't used them until now to make this card:

The daisies are pre-printed onto a 6 by 6 square of white card which I attached to front of a 6 by 6 card blank after I had embellished them.  I used Pro-Markers to colour some of the flowers and circles, added Candi and crystals to some and Retro Daisies to the large three.

The spine of this card is at the top and I scored horizontally across the back of the card before sticking the top half of the front and back together.  I'm not sure that makes sense but the image below should illustrate what I am trying to say:

This means the card stands at an angle like a frame.  I added a birthday sentiment inside the card.

Celebrate In Style

Here's a card I made with the Bubble Bloom (Clarissa) stamps which I bought from Craftwork Cards:

I stamped both images using Black Soot Distress Ink and added Candi, pearls and crystals to fill the circles.  The leaves are paper pieced and I finished the card off by tying some black grosgrain ribbon round the spine.

There is another set of these called Felicity and they too are lovely.  Here is a link to both sets.
