More Recent Work.

Baby Boy Card.

This card was made for my new little cousin Sean. I tried to do something a bit different from pictures of cribs and prams. I love working with buttons, so here is something with them.

I used light blue from the Core'dinations 6" x 6" (15.2cm) card stock, ink the edges using light blue ink and stick a smaller piece of  yellow and blue floral pattered paper from Papermania Summer Bloom 12x12 .
Print on a small square of cream paper your sentiment. I used these. Back this with a slightly larger inked blue card and attach using Prit pads. Cut another rectangle in cream, back with the inked  blue card and fix a strip of blue ribbon along the centre. Then use alternative blue and yellow buttons and attach.

Mammy's Birthday Card,

My mum celebrated her birthday quite recently and this is what I did for her. (she loves flowers!)

I used a cream square based card, covered it with script style paper from K&Co Conservatory 6x6 pk. I then sanded it with a file and inked it with dark brown ink. I then cut a smaller square from Websters pages Spring Market 6x6 pk. I inked this again and stuck it down. I cut a strip from the Prima Paper Madeline Pk , which I inked again and covered with a blue strip of the K & Co card, which I used a rub on sentiment on.

To make the flowers on the side I punched different sized flowers in the script style paper with small Xcut Flower punch . Each of these were inked with blueish ink and aranged on top of one another. I bent each of the petals on the top ones slightly to give a 3d effect, and used a bigger punch for one. I put a pearl sticker in the centre.
