Pressies for you

Here is a card I made at the start of the year. Yes… I am that far behind in posting cards up. However, I shall try to schedule up some posts this week to try to get up to date!

I have used frantage, copics and distress ink for the effects on the image and the rest of the card. The borders are made using a Noor Design die, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the stamp is Wild Rose Studio. I wanted mostly blue and browns for the card, but as the recipient is a woman, I couldn’t help by add a dash of pink!


Stacked presents

Time for a purple card! As it is Lili of the Valley’s 9th birthday today, a card using their stamps seems highly appropriate. Obviously, the stamp is by Lili of the Valley, coloured in with copics, and the sentiment stamp is from there too. I have used paper from the first paper pack I bought, as well as paper from a small First Edition paper pad and some scraps I had left over. The leaves are made with a Martha Stewart punch, various flowers, ribbon and a pre-made bow from Wild Orchid Crafts. The layout I did here is a version of a criss-cross card.
