Good morning my crafty friends. Here is the DT card I told you I was off to make yesterday for the theme is flowers and ribbon, With a prize of 7 digi's for one lucky winner from
I started this card as always with choosing a image from the House mouse triple CD and then took inspiration as always from the colours used in the image. I chose a backing paper of the same colour of the flower in the vase and embossed it with the embossalicous knit one folder to give it texture. Then I cut the image out using a tonic circle die and a border from the next size up and for the back layer I cut a solid circle from the tonic butterfly doily die using the closest colour to the orange I could and then a white layer from the same die and layered them together so the solid one would show through the holes. Then I used the Sue Wilson die from her Scandinavian collection Copenhagen and cut it in half to put behind the top and bottom of the frames to give a bit of a lacey look to it. Behind the image frame I used the tonic butterfly border punch to create a lacey border. I cut a backing piece to give a border around the outside from the same colour card I used for the center frame and flowers and layered it all on to the card. Then I made the flowers from the Sue Wilson finishing touches-delicate daisies open dies which are my newest favourite and placed some pearls in the center to match the card. Then I added a bow,as always, in the same colour theme and place a ready bought rose in the center. I hope you like my creation and it will inspire you to have a go. Happy crafting everyone

Hello everyone, I am in a bit of a hurry this morning as I have to get my DT card done for Gruffies and Guests by the end of today. I thought I would share the card I made yesterday for a friend who wanted a wedding card made. I haven't shown it to her yet so I am hoping she will like it,or I will have to start again. I made this one using a Craft creations die cut decoupage sheet DCD591 - wedding day sheet and one of the Tonic heart dies. I also used some crafters companion centural pearl ivory card,which I used for the layer between the base white card and the top white card and also for the central embossed heart,which was embossed using the crafters companion embossabilities swirls folder. I then die cut the heart into a white piece of card stock so it stayed in the card and used a quickie glue pen and pure white glitter behind the cutouts to shine through. then I cut,embossed and layered a smaller heart in the ivory in the centre to add texture and colour. Then I cut the large heart in the top layer and used foam backed sticky tape to make the front layer stand proud and added the decoupaged image of the bride and groom and a flower bouquet I made up and tied some ribbon around the stems and added another ribbon with bow to get the four tails and added some heart pins and a heart button. I type the sentiment I wanted on my computer and made it the size I wanted and printed it out and cut them out to look like ribbons and layered them onto more of the ivory card stock and trimmed it to give a boarder and added it to the card. I think I have mentioned everything but please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions
