End of year Card Challenges...

Some more glitter. I have made this Birthday card today using one of the Lili of the Valley toppers, they have changed their format to their toppers all being one size and I must admit that I liked the previous format of an A4 sheet with the lovely pictures in various sizes, I felt there was more opportunities to use the toppers, i.e. for the outside of the card and perhaps a smaller one for the inside or the reverse. I am however glad that I had picked up a about 10 of the sheets on March at the SECC Craft Fair, so will make good use of them I promise!
This card has been made using some pp from my craft box, paper flowers from my stash and a Birthday tag from the wonderful Craftwork Cards. I was fortunate enough to have gone on their blog at the beginning of December and taken advantage of a special offfer of their project bags at half price, down to £5! I purchased three of these, various colours and designs, and the pack included card and envelopes, tags, ribbons, card candy, templates etc. These are a fabulous buy even at the full cost of £10. I have also used Stickles around the outer edges of the papers, this doesn't show up som well on the photograph though. I have used Sakura glitter pen on the angel's wings to add some more sparkle! A few embellishments added to the corners with glossy accents, I must admit I like using this as a "glue" for those wee fiddly bits. A new, and very welcome addition to my stash, is a paire of tweezers, wow, these make picking up the gems so much easier, wish I had known about that before!

  3. Hi Anne, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. I love your card, the LOTV images are gorgeous aren't they? The swirls on my card were die-cut using some of the new dies I was lucky enough to get for Christmas. These particular ones were from a Marianne Creatables border die LR0116. I hope this helps. Jo

  6. Hi there

    I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 600 so far !

    I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
