Charlotte and Butterfly

Morning to all my blogging friends , and welcome to all my new followers x..

I saw this image and thought it was just gorgeous so had to buy it and several more from   there are some beautiful digi images on there and well worth a look .

I made this card last night , well there was nothing on tv and my sons had gone out so i made a mess of my living room and dining room while making this card lol.

I started with a plain white card blank , scored to make an a5 card , then matted the blue/green/red/and white flowers embossed and glittered card .

Then i embossed the aqua Tim Holtz cardstock, using the b side of the Mbossabilty  folder "Splendid" i coloured the dot in the middle of each daisy like flower with a red Promarker , and matted it onto the flowered card .

I cut the image using the largest of the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles (i love this dye its so pretty ) i coloured the background to the dye with distress ink Fired Brick . The image is called Charlotte and butterfly , it was so easy to colour in using my Promarkers and Flexmarkers .

I added a Birthday Wishes greeting with a ribbon and gem to the top right hand corner ,and a couple of tiles at the bottom left 4 U ,  some lace down the right hand side , leaves i cut on my trusty friend Cameo , the red flower was bought from Ebay . I placed gems in Charlottes hair , down the body of the Butterfly , in in 3 of the corners round the image , and along the bottom of the embossed aqua cardstock just above the edge i cut with my Martha Stewert punch .

The inside of the card has been decorated to match the front , i used a greeting stamp from LOTV saying" Wishing you a Magical Birthday"

I will be entering this card into the following challenges  --   Butterfly and Bows -- Punch drunk

Thanks for dropping by today , hope you all have a lovely weekend ,  catch up agian soon ....Hugs Sue xx

I added a row of lace accross the bottom of the card and around the topper finished with faux pearls .
The flowers are a mixture from Wild Orchid , Papermania and ebay . I cit leaves and flourishes out with Cameo , and edged it all with faux stitching .....

Fathers Day Card

Here i have a Fathers day card i made , i dont normally make these types of cards unless asked as i dont have anyone to give it to .
 I saw a card this shape on the net and thought it looked different and thought i would have a go at making one myself , so here it is , I was surprised how easy it was to make and i enjoyed making it ..

The papers i used were a freebie from Crafters Companion , the colours are really gorgeous , and i am sure i will use them often ......

 I have had to take quite a few pictures as it was a little difficult to show all sides of the card .

I started with an a4 card blank , scored at tri-fold , then cut a peice off each end from the top to the middle to make it slope . The fancy top was cut from another peice of card , i cut the fancy edge at the from by drawing around the largest of my Spellbinders label sixteen die , i had to draw the middle bit then move the die over to the edge and join up to get that shape .

I matted 2 lots of the paper onto the sides at the front added the greeting strips and guitars on the right side and small triangles spelling the word Dad on ther left side ....

The front top was matted also with 2 co-ordinated papers , then the image was added . I went around the edge with my pokie tool to make holes and used a Sakura pen so it looks like faux stitching , then the faux buttons were added , to which i threaded some string through the holes and tyed in a knot .

The middle of the card was finished off with papers that matched the front with a large topper , which i think is lovely , it says

Perfect DAD Recipe
1,  Good Listener
2, Great Advice
3,  Best Friend ......

With another greeting along the bottom .

I am entering this card in the following challenges --------       Happy Fathers Day

Thanks for dropping by and for all the lovely comments you leave for me ....

Wedding Card and Box

 Morning all , hope you all had a lovely long lazy weekend .

I was asked last week to make a wedding card by  my sons friend, for his sister , i have only ever made 1 wedding card before so thought this would be a real challenge for me .
I wanted to make it all cream , and use my Cameo and Spellbinders , and after looking throu all my cut files i came up with this .

I also made a box and decorated that to go with the card . Its all made from cream pearlecant card i bought from The Paper Mill and to say its 300gsm the Cameo cut it perfectly , i was really pleased with the end result of the card and the box  . They were all made using my Cameo ,Spellbinders and printer , and a little gold foiling for the names .

Thanks for dropping by , hope you all have a nice day , Hugs Sue xxxx
