A Birthday Card For A Friend

Last month, I was lucky enough to win a prize given away by 
Christine of  Hopes and Chances Creativity
For one week in May, Christine kindly gave away a Spellbinders die every day
on
her Facebook page HERE 

 I won the Swirl Lattice Panel die which is just gorgeous and can be found in the 
Hope and Chances Creativity shop HERE currently available at a sale price!

My card is based on an idea which comes on the back of the packaging.
Firstly, I covered the front of the card with some vintage floral paper. 
Next I die-cut some pearlized card twice with the Lattice Panel die, glued 
them together to create the square shape.
I then added the stamped sentiment, flowers and sprigs, finishing with
some pearls to decorate.
The products I have used are:-
Spellbinders - Swirl Lattice Panel
Spellbinders Shapeabilities - Fancy Framed Tags Two
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die D-Lites - Sprigs
Docrafts Xcut Punch - Small Daisy
Sentiment Stamp - Magazine Freebie

A Birthday Card for another Great Niece!

We have a bit of a run on family birthdays in May and June, so today I am sharing 
the card I made for another one of my great nieces who celebrated her birthday yesterday.
I started by making the card base using the largest scalloped bunting 
die and cutting two pieces of white card. I glued them together at the top.
After die-cutting a piece of patterned paper with one of the straight bunting dies, 

I matted it onto the blue card and cut by hand.
Next, I die cut the number and letters with blue card and also craft foam 

sheets which I glued together to give a little bit of depth.

My last card from the 'Make and Take' Fundraiser...

Today, I have the last card to share with you, that I made at the Fundraising
'Make and Take' on Saturday, details of which can be found HERE
I really enjoyed making this card, and was so pleased that everything had already
been die-cut by Kay, who designed this one. She had been very clever (and busy!)
cutting all the shapes needed to put this sheep scene together.
All we had to do was put the pieces together and assemble the card.

She had been very imaginative by using parts of different floral and foliage dies for
their food, and also using parts of flower dies for their feet!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:-

Karen, Gill and Kay work really hard designing and putting the
card packs together for these Make and Take's, and all for such a good cause.

Thank you for visiting today.
