I’ve finally finished the card I made with the Pinkfresh Studio flowers I coloured up with my Prismacolor pencils for my video back in August: see it here. I’ve drawn a border around the coloured panel and stamped a birthday greeting from Papertrey Ink. A few sequins and then some die cut butterflies from La-La Land Crafts made up the rest of the card.
I’ve coloured up one of Emily Midgett’s colouring panels. A dash of yellow for the flowers and a bright yellow background. The only decorations are a few transparent sequins and a die cut sentiment. The sentiment is actually the hello die by Altenew (aff.link) which I cut into a Norwegian equivalent. I admit it worked a lot better than I had thought and it doesn’t look like it’s been cut, I think. Love it when you can use a die like that!
The card is simple where the card base (from MFT Stamps) is matching the frosting and the background paper (also MFT Stamps) is matching the coloured image as well. A simple embossed Norwegian sentiment (Mathia Design) and a few matching enamel dots finished off the card this time.
This is the other of the two cards I made for my sister’s birthday this year. I decided it was time to try a full panel shaker card. I’ve seen a few others make these recently so I played around a little bit to see if I could work it out. I think it turned out alright and it’s such a fun card to give away!
The background is made with distress oxide inks and then I used a background stamp from MFT Stamps on the top part of the background in a slightly darker turquoise colour. I used various sequins and blings for the shaker area and then I added a sentiment and a coloured Tiddly Inks image on top.
For my sister’s birthday I’ve made two cards and they are completely different. The first of the two that I will show you is this fun one. I’ve combined products from loads of different companies again: Mama Elephant (stamp), Altenew (stencil and enamel dots), Distress Oxides, MFT Stamps (background stamp and bigger die), La-La Land Crafts (smaller die), Papirdesign (word die) and Mathia Design (embossed text).
