I got this amazing Digi from Star Stampz! I found some beautiful paper in my stash with glittered butterflies and coloured Kimono to coordinate. Before layering the sentiment I embossed the backing shape with a cherry blossom tree. I then used my spellbinders die to add more cherry blossoms behind Kimono before adding her with 3D craft foam.




On the inside of my card I added a peacock cut from the same paper. This die is from Crafters Companion Kimono range.

Red, White & Blue birthday

The next fortnights challenge over at Simply Create Too is #110 Red, White & Blue. I found this box card template on the silhouette store and thought it would be great for a male card with a simple digi behind it. I found this digi in my stash and knew it was perfect. I mounted it with 3D craft foam to make it pop off the background paper before attaching the front of the box card.

I got this amazing Digi from Julia Spiri and I adore it! I decided that this beautiful image needed to be pride of place on a card. I fussy cut her after colouring her with pencils. I glued some patterned paper to a shaped card and cut it out so it matched the previous card shape. Next I embossed a scalloped shape with a Sheena embossing folder before mounting the sentiment onto with 3d craft foam. I added candi around the edge of the card and on the corners of the base.

The next fortnights challenge over at Simply Create Too is #108 Ladies Only. For my card I went all pink with beautiful paper from Craftwork cards. I paired this with this fab digi which I also coloured pink. I used some banner dies to add some interest to the background and used some coordinating paper on them. Pop over to Simply Create Too and join in our challenge!


 On the inside of the card I added a pop up butterfly which I cut from the same paper pad.

Green & Purple - Simply Create Too

0 comments
What am I going to make for a green and purple colour combination challenge? I thought to myself but then I saw a bendy card design in the silhouette store. This paired with my mum asking me to make a card for a new neighbour and this card was born! I actually love this card and the colour combination.
