Good morning all my lovely friends sorry I've been MIA all yesterday I will catch up with you all today tho I promise....I've missed ya!!
Onto my card which is of course my Sweet Pea Stampers card & this fortnight we thought we would do our bit trying to save Mother Earth............RECYCLE is the challenge this time.
Now I'm gonna try do the least amount of babble cus this is photo heavy......you will see why tho & I had great fun making this.........I'm surprised my brain could think of so much....
This I made for a friend who is having a rough time at the mo.
This is 'Courage' by Karen Middleton which of course you can get here.
The tulle flower I made myself & added a button to the centre.
I coloured this image with distress inks. The gold clasp is a jewellery box catch.
Which opens to a nice verse. I got a free colouring image from Ching-Chou Kuik's website (you are not allowed to sell anything that contains these images) & then lightened it in my photo doo daa & then typed a verse over the top of it. If you enlarge it you should be able to see better.
Yes its an easel card. I've made the usual tag to write your own message.
My recycled bit was an empty roll of DSST I always keep them cus, well you just never know. This one I used to attach a round gift box to the card. I made a bottom & then a lid. I also stamped part of the image on the lid & heat embossed it with copper.
I'm going to make an angel charm to put inside as she loves angels. I've lined the bottom with a small doily.
& sprinkled glitter on. IRL it has a gorgeous sparkle.
Of course I had to accomodate the thickness of the box so altered the folds & added an extra one, I used 12x12 card to make the card.
Papers are a mix of Prima & Websters. The large flower & the 2 white longish ones are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The doilies I got from Ebay the larger one I stamped & distressed. The papers were distressed & inked & I also added faux stitching. The stamp is from Sweet Pea Stamps. Everything else on the card is from my stash.
Well thats it from me thank you soooo much for stopping by please pop over to here to see my teamies creations, they all have the wow factor. Look forward to seeing your bit for mother earth this fortnight.
Right I'm off to try start my catching up.
See ya soonies mmwah xoxoxoxoxo
