Silver Wedding Card

I can't ever get mirri card to photograph very well so apologies again for this picture.
I used a shaped 8x8 card with silver mirri card and silver rose patterned vellum. I've had this vellum for again and now only have a tiny scrap left. I cut the numbers out using my Clever Cut number templates (such a good investment) and ran them through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers embossing folder. Some crystal brads in the corners add the finishing touch.

Challenge Card

On one of those days when the mojo just isn't flowing Sarn challenged me to make a card using one of my oldest stamps and using a flower. I stamped this image (PSX) in Sepia Versafine and used water colours and a touch of glitter. The card base is gold, embossed with holly leaves (bought years ago from Hobbycraft in a sale). The flowers are prima with a blob of Liquid Pearls. The sentiment is also very old and I can't remember where it came from. Sorry about the photo quality but you get the idea I hope! Thanks as ever for the inspiration Sarn, you're a lifesaver!

August RAK Card

Another card using some papers from an old magazine (Creative Cardmaking Summer Special). I added some glitter foam flowers and Craftwork Cards 'stems'.

More Forever Friends Christmas

The top card is a stamped image which I flocked - wasn't too sure on the result but it's growing on me now. The backing paper is from a FF pad. The second card is a FF die cut decoupage image, mounted onto an embossed oval Nestie. Got the peel off corners out for this one - they haven't been out for quite a while! Not sure where the blue backing paper came from, it was in my stash. A peel off greeting finishes it off.

60th Birthday Card

Seems lots of people at work are reaching milestone birthdays. This was for my Team Leader who was 60 last month. The image was downloaded from Crafts U Print (loving this site at the moment). The 60 was glittered with glamour dust just to make it pop a bit more.

Forever Friends Christmas Cards

Here's a few Christmas cards that I've been making. I dug out my Forever Friends box and used some embossed cards that were part of a QVC bumper kit last year. I chalked the embossed areas and used a mixture of stickers and die cut decoupage for the central image

75th Birthday

This is a card I've made for a colleague at work who celebrates her 75th birthday next week (yep, I really did get a card made early!) The paper and topper is from an old issue of Making Cards Magazine (cannot think why I haven't used these before). The pink card was punched with the Fiskars Threading Water border punch and I added pink velvet ribbon. The overall design was based on an idea in the magazine.
