I wanted to share a card that I have made for my Godchild. Katie is turning 21 on Sunday and I wanted to make something extra special for her as she is such a sweet and loving young lady. I have had my eye on this one for quite some time and was originally made by Odette Kermode, a very talented lady.
I had the pleasure of having Carolyn King visit and show me how the card is made and here is my version. My daughter visited and saw the one I had made and said that it would look nice with Sunflowers so here it is.
Just a little closer to show you the detail.
I received the Pinwheel Die sometime ago and thought I had better put it to use. It is so quick and easy to just run the pattern off using your die and Big Shot. Unfortunately most of the ladies found putting them together a bit difficult. The trick is to bend your little wings prior to joining them all together. This makes it easier in the long run.
Last but not least is a favourite as I love using Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Basic Black together. This one I have actually made into a Double Slider Card for Pat Carr's camp with the card going long ways instead of across. I love the Floral Fusion Die. The flowers are so cute. For this card I have used the Silver Glitter Paper for the centre of the flowers using an office punch instead of using Rhinestones. I found it quite effective and it really glistens in the light. I have also used the HoneyComb Folder, Window Frames Die and the Finishing Touches Edgelits.
Well I am off to Pat's Camp this afternoon (Friday) and wont be home until Sunday. I am so looking forward to it. My mum is also coming along with me and I am looking forward to her spending some time away and doing something she really loves. Mum has never been on a Stamp Camp before and I just know she is going to really enjoy it. We are going to be spoilt as we are staying at Avalon Homestead near Toodyay. Its a lovely setting and our hosts are just lovely.
I had better go and get ready so I will be back with some projects that we will be making.
Bye for now and thanks for popping by :)
