Happy Birthday Ju

This is the birthday card I made for my friend Ju who's birthday is today
Happy Birthday Ju
I have scored lines to create embossed diamond shapes on the lilac card and stuck a lilac gem on each join. The image is a Lili of the Valley and comes as a square, I cut out with my large scalloped square nestie and matted onto some darker purple card also cut out with the large scalloped nestie.
The main flower has been made using a Nellie Snellen punch and then the Nellie Snellen embossing punch and a clear gem in the centre. The other flowers are made using 2 sizes of X-Cut daisy punches and lilac gems in the centre.
I have used Anita's glitterations to create a border around both pieces of the lilac card. I have used silver peel offs to create the sentiment.
I have added a photo showing the side of the card as well as the one underneath which shows the card from the front.

Thanks for looking x

First taste of snow

Here is another xmas card. I have used Sandra's fabulous template to make the centre step card Which can be found here. I used the template exactly as it is but I might try to adapt it to make some bigger cards with the same folds.
The image is a Karens Doodles Digi stamp called First taste of snow which I have coloured in with Promarkers. I then cut out with my circle and scalloped circle nesties, added silver peel offs to each scallop and added crystal stickles to the falling snow.
The papers are from a pack of Dovecraft 8 x 8 papers called Christmas Blues. I have added silver glitterations to the edges of all the cut backing paper before sticking to the card, then added some irridescent ribbon to the bottom with a matching bow.

Bigsby Gift Card

I have followed the great sketch over at Karens Doodles Challenge blog for this card.
The image is a Karens Doodles called Bigsby gift which I have coloured in with Promarkers, then cut using my circle nestie and cut a piece of card to layer onto with my scalloped circle nesties then added a peel off to each scallop.
The backing papers are all from a pack by Craft Too, I have edged the papers with gold fine line peel offs before adding to a piece of card. I have added pink gems in the top right hand corner and the bottom right hand corner. The daisies have been made using 2 sizes of X-Cut punches and a peel off in the centre of each. I have added the image and the daisies to the card using 3d foam pads.
