The first card was a quick one I made using a die cut I picked up at the NEC on Friday. I was asked to make a card for a colleague to give to his wife for Mother's Day. The only guidance I was given was that it should have some flowers. I have to admit that I don't own much on the "floral" line, so when I saw these I knew I had to have them!
The die cut has been mounted to some peach cs. The base is is made up with some white cs embossed using the D'vine Swirls folder and layered onto the same peach cs and finished off with some gemstones in the corners. The image has been added using 3d foam pads. The sentiment was part of the set. I know it's a bit of a cheat, I just hope my colleague likes it.
The second card was made for a very good friends birthday. Lyn is like a second mum to me and I wanted to do something nice. The image is one of my Forever Friends stamps that has been coloured with Copics. The base is two different shades of pink cs with the lightest having been punched with the MS Doily border punch. The flowers are Prima and have been added with some brads. The sentiment is from my Woodware set and has been finished off again with gemstones.
I hope you like them. I have a couple more to make that people have asked for at work as well as my mum and mum-in-laws' Mother's Day cards to make so looks like I'm going to be a busy bee for the next few days!
I apologise for not having been round every one's blogs recently, I will try to catch up once I've got all these cards made.
Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.
