Woohoo!...I've made a card!
Recently I have been so busy with business 'stuff' I've almost forgotten that I actually make cards sometimes! So today it was quite a nice change to make a card that wasn't for a demonstration or work related in some way but one that is actually going to be sent to someone!!
My Nan has reached the grand old age of eight nine, well she will do tomorrow, so I have made her a card to celebrate. I decided to make it pretty and pink and leave off details of her age, I'm sure she will like it that way!
The spotty backing paper is from my craft download collection Shabby Saturday. The flower is by Prima and it's mounted in some lovely Bazzill card with the Swiss dots already embossed on it, which saves me doing it with my cuttlebug embossing folder! The biggest deal really on this card is that I have actually stitched the stem on the flower! Of course I had some help from my Bazzill In Stitch'z flourishes template, a recent fab purchase from the sale at Craft Obsessions. Anyone who knows me even just a little knows I don't 'do sewing' so having these templates has been a big help!!
I'm quite pleased with the results actually so be prepared to see more stitching from me in the future !!
Speak again real soon.
