Managed to make a card this morning and I'm really pleased with the results because this is so far removed from my normal style and I managed to stay true to a sketch and hold back on adding too many embellies, lol!
I followed this fab sketch over at Card Patterns and I think it's the first time I've joined in with the challenge!! It was a gorgeous layout to work with too!
Having had a bit of a sale of some of my older crafting goodies recently, I've been able to have a little spending spree and bought a fab set of cameo/frame stamps from Waltzingmouse.... not my usual thing I guess but I think they're so classical and will be particularly handy for making cards for older ladies. This particular card is for a 70 year old and I thought she might appreciate the style more than something cutsie! I also bought some Bo Bunny papers and stickers and I've used a mix of the Timepiece and Et Cetera collections here. I added in torn roses, lace, a doily and a DooHickey swirl to finish.
As well as following the sketch at Card Patterns I was also inspired to use the pictures and colours provided by the girls at The Shabby Tea Room for their new challenge, although I hope I'm forgiven for making my card with a birthday theme rather than wedding! The above picture is where I took my main inspiration, hence the cameo theme.
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
