Inspiration

I'm still getting my head around this new blogging idea. I've looked at loads of different blogs and they look so good compared to mine. I will discuss this with my daughter and son in law when they next come. I'm sure its really obvious what I need to do. Their generation are just so IT savvy, even my three year old grandson can use an Android phone to play games- even in Japanese!

I started this blog because I make all these cards and send them and never see them again, so this was a way to save them and let anyone else who's interested see them too. I while away many an hour looking for ideas and I'm very grateful for those of you out there that publish your ideas for others to share.

Here is a card I made based on one made in a class from about three years ago. It isn't a direct copy but based on a similar idea.


The card was made for my Mum's birthday a couple of years ago. It is based on a Graphic 45 collection (Le Romantique) with handmade roses and lace effect card done with a Martha Stewart edge punch. The tags were part of the same collection. I don't always like to use ready made toppers, I think it's a bit of a cop out, but these did fit the brief.


This A4 gatefold card was completed with a strand of pearls snaking across the right hand panel.

I have made similar cards using a blue theme and one with a more masculine palette (A proper Gentleman) with different Graphic 45 collections. Perhaps I will hunt it out and post it another time.

The roses were made using punched flower shapes in two different sizes. Here is a linky to a tutorial that shows how to make them, http://in2crafting.blogspot.co.uk/2010/04/tutorials-six-petal-rose.html

Have a go they aren't as difficult as they look and you will feel so good when you have finished one!
