A Sprinkling of Flowers

Hello All!  Hope you have something lovely happening today, the sun is out at the moment but I think our day is shortly going to be rather wet :(   The card I have for you today was one which the ladies did here a few weeks ago now.  I just didn’t get round to posting it at the time unfortunately – so here it is now!  I have given you 3 views as it is a tri-fold card and I wanted you to see whats on the inside and the righthand flap too.

The entire piece of card measures 42cm x 18cm and I have folded it into 3.  The card is from Papermill and the papers are Maja Road, all the corners were trimmed with a corner punch.  The topper on the front of the card is made up using one of the dies from Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 followed by the largest die in the set from Marianne, Petra, Small Ovals die.  The sentiment die is stamped onto an oval from Spellbinders Nestabilities, I then die cut two corner dies from Spellbinders Decorative Butterfly/Border die set and “hugged” them around the oval sentiment.  The flowers are cut from Marianne Branch & Flower 1 die set and I have used the branch from the same set, behind the flowers.   The swirls drizzled across the flowers are cut from a bow die from Memory Box, the little butterflies which are dotted around are a Martha Stewart punch.  The border and bow are from Creative Expressions, Filigree 3D Bow.  There is a reduced selection of dies on the centre and back panels but they are all as listed above, the only additional die is the bar die which I have used beneath the Filigree Border, this is from Spellbinders Ironworks Motifs.   The pearls are from my own collection. Hope you like it guys! All for now, hugs Annie xx

Richard in Red

Morning!! The card I have to share with you today was made for my dear brother, whose birthday was yesterday, 2nd June.  No prizes for guessing Richard is into his cycling, he has cycled many miles on his racing bike, including London to Paris for charity.  I love my brother dearly and was only too delighted to make him a be-fitting birthday card.  As all you card makers will know, it’s not very easy as he needs a dreaded “man card” ……eeeeek!

richards card & pam's card 003

This card measures a cool  20mm x 20mm.  The black and red card is from my Papermill collection and the papers are Dreamies.  There aren’t too many dies used in this card (as it’s a man’s card!!), I have used one of the dies from Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles for the picture frame and as an accent to the edges of the layers.  The round die is from Spellbinders Majestic Elements, Majestic Circles.  The wording has been die cut from Cheery Lynn dies.  The ribbon is from my collection.  Have a great day all  :)   Hugs Annie xx
