thanks for your lovely comments. As always they were very much appreciated. Yes a lot of work went into the little book from my last post, hence a quick card today.
Finally I made a card using this Gorgeous Girl Stamp from docrafts.
Just a quick description, which I posted on my Creativity Gallery at docrafts.com
you need: 5×7 inch folded base card, grey card, a scrap of cream, light and darker blue card, blue baker’s twine, blue button, xcut stitch border punch, corner rounder, flower punches/cutting dies, gingham paper from Bouffle collection, Gorgeous girl on swing stamp, grey ink, Promarkers to colour, white card for stamping on, black Memento ink, pearl
Punch along the top and side edge of your base card using the border punch, cut 2 lengths of twine and weave through your punched border. Stamp and colour your image, cut the grey card and paper to fit, mark where you need to stamp the scalloped border and then stamp the border using grey ink. Die-cut or punch flowers from cream grey darker and light blue card and layer as seen in the photograph. Round the corners as shown in the photo and mat and layer your grey card, paper, grey card and coloured image. Then tread the twine through the button and tie in a bow. Add sentiment, flower and pearl to finish.
Off to pack up the caravan. Back again next week with some more projects.
Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
