I made this card for my brother in law's birthday. He runs a gardening business so his cards usually have a garden related theme. The image is a decoupage that was free in a magazine. I embossed some green card with a diamond pattern (for some reason I associate it with fencing??) to mount the finished topper on and then some green gingham check paper I inked the edges, another technique that I don't do often but really should. A Craftwork Cards sentiment in a teal foil complemented the colours used.
A few words about me...time for an update! I'm a married stay at home mum with 2 children and I'm the right side of 50 (not that there's anything wrong with the other side and God willing I'll find out soon enough!) . I've been making cards for around 10 years now. I started when my daughter began receiving invites to birthday parties when she started pre-school (she's in secondary school now!). My card making goes in phases - I either seem to be very productive or very unproductive! My favourite cards to make are Christmas ones and I love that I found a hobby that allows me to indulge in a little bit of Christmas every day. It's not unusual for me to play Christmas tunes on the hottest day of the year - I think after 13 years my neighbours are used to it!
