Happy New Year
... I thought I would show you this birthday card that I made for my niece. It was just before Christmas in the middle of making all those Christmas cards, so I turned to my stash for something quick, as you do! The topper I used is a steam punk one from Kanban called Cordelia, I think it is great and makes up really well. From the one A4 sheet you could make as many as 4 cards if you use wisely... and I know that crafters do this all the time!
Then stamped the outside of the card blank using 'greenhouse garden' from stampin up and close to cocoa and pumpkin pie ink.
The swirls I have added were cut using the tim holtz die elegant flourishes, then I ran it through an embossing folder to give it more dimension.
I have taken the brown spotted background card all the way across the inside to the fold of the card, making it tidy! I have added a ribbon down the side of the topper to hide the join. Then with a ribbon bow, some pearls and a brad and a couple of tiny keys punched using copper glitter card the card was ready to go!
I do hope you like it and maybe feel your mojo comimg back from all those robins, santas and snowflakes.
Thank you for poppin by... will be posting again soon. X x
