I quick post today, just to let you all know that I am still here! I have had a whirlwind of a couple of weeks, and I have finally retired! I have one more class next week, but essentially as from last weekend I am a lady who lunches! I have had so much fun spending my last two years working in the craft shop, but its time to concentrate on my own crafting. I am looking forward to creating more, and at the moment I am getting prepared for my stall at the local 3 day craft fair in June, and who knows I might be able to get back to more regular posts! On to today’s card… I bought all the Georgia Blue range from Prima, and this is one of the cards I have had time to create with it so far! I guess that will change now! The very bottom layer is actually some vellum that came in the flower packaging, and I have used a 3x 4 journalling card from the same range, along with emphemera, flowers, and a die cut glitter swirl. Til tomorrow…..
I have enjoyed making quite a few cards that fitted more comfortably into a box rather than an envelope. My photographer Nathan has chosen to photograph these ones in their box, so you may not see the full 3D’ness of them, but trust me they needed a box! the top card is made with Mintay Birdsong papers. I taught a class using this range of papers this week, it is gorgeous, and I am now tempted to again get my papers out and make some more cards with this range. I have used one of my handmade frames, and some lace, flowers and metal embellishment . The bottom card is Prima Georgia Blues, and there is a lot of gold foil on this range of papers which explains the flash on the photo..poor Nathan must have been blinded with that! You can see why this one needed a box – lots of lovely fabric and paper flowers, lace and emphemera. I hope you are all having a safe and happy Easter break, til next time…..
