In The Pink.

This is  a card that I made for a recent swap. The swap required two pink cards you can see the second card up above  where I will be posting it shortly. I wanted to make a shabby chic style card with stitching. The stamp is a favourite of mine by 'Crafty Individuals'. I have layered up various backing papers by glueing to cardboard and then distressing the edges and hand stitiching a border. My blogging friend Sherry will be so proud of me as I managed to leave all the threads dangling!!! The butterfly is made with a punch that I snuck from Fluff (but had to give it back) so don't know who it is by. This is one of the last in my stash.

 

The flower is made using my Spellbinders Rose Creations die but instead of sculpting the petals I have left them flat. (When you cut with this die you get left with the centres from the petals which I keep in a lttle tin.) Here I have layered up with snippets of different backing papers  and instead of using a brad for the centre have used one of the circles from the plain petals to cover up the hole. A spot of glossy accents on top  and you have home made candi!

  5. Lovely pink card Mrs A - and good girl for leaving those ends hanging - lol! I had a little mishap last week, merrily snipping away at some loose ends in an abandoned manner and merrily snipped into my finger tip - ouch! That'll teach me!!!

  13. I thought I recognised that butterfly! It's a quickutz die and may well end up living in the pod. Fab pinky card. Apart from the dangly thread you must have enjoyed making this. The shabby effect looks great too. xx

  17. I really like the butterfly and flower on this card. When I read card maker blogs I always feel like their in a secret club. They mention all the things they've used to create their cards and I have no idea what their talking about. But I love seeing the cards. Thanks for sharing.
