Hello everyone in blogger land,
I hope you are all well and busy crafting? Today is full of sunshine but it is rather on the chilly side don't you think? I remember how hot is was on the 16th May 1989, not like today, as it was the day my eldest daughter was born :) So I have been up since 8.30 this morning doing her card. I tried over the last few night but nothing seemed right, no matter what I did, so I packed it all in and went to watch some TV before I threw everything in the bin...lol.
So, despite having older things to show you I'm going to show you the card I've just finished making for her. I have a few stamp sets that have never been used and one of them is Patterned Party so I decided to use this one. Its a stamp set that shouts fun at you with the bunting, balloons, numbers etc. I had already chosen the colour scheme as green and purple as I feel they compliment one another. The other reason was that, at my recent scrapbook class my sister and sister in law used this combination and Nicola commented on how nice it looked together.
Ok here is the card for Nicola's birthday today:
I have used Perfect Plum, Whisper White and Wild Wasabi card-stock. On the Apothacary Accent Framelit I have used one of the brilliant builder brads, don't you just love them. I personally think they make a card seem very elegant. The whisper white card was embossed using the hexagonal embossing folder and looked a bit empty when I put it on the card so I punched out some tiny hearts and stuck then inside one of the hexagonal shapes. Just what was needed I thought.
Below is the inside of the card and I have used Bring on the Cake stamp set for the sentiment.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my creations and if you have I would appreciate it if you could leave a comment to show you have passed by.
