I have made a card for my friend's Birthday using my new cutting dies from MARIANNE design. This is LR0454 Anja's Butterfly Die Set.
I was totally inspired by a card I saw made by Julie Price, an Australian member of the World Marianne Team, so I went along with it using bits that I had in my stash. I don't have any of those lovely bead swirls she has, but I think it's kinda OK without them :-)
I chose to mount mine onto a large blue card.
The card is pretty big at 8" square but it is for a special friend :-)
The backing papers I used are the latest Freebie set from FAR FAR HILL called ' Spring Mood '.
The lovely bird picture in the middle is a digital scrapbook cluster I got free on a Blog Train last week by G & T DESIGNS.
I have to make myself a big envelope for this baby as I can't get them this big here. :-)
It's still raining today but more 'off' than 'on' LoL
*** By the way - do you think it's useful to put pictures of the products I used on the Post or is it just a waste of space/time ??? ***
I shall be back in again later - thanks for dropping by xxxx
Challenges I am entering:
International Art & Soul Challenge #3 - Fancy Borders *** DT Fave ***
Beautiful card. I have never made an 8x8 . . . couldn't cope with it! Yours is excellent though God knows how you made an envelope to fit it! Top marks!ReplyDelete
Up to you about the product pictures . . . could be useful to readers and an aide memoir for you at a later date . . . but more pictures might make your blog posts slower to load? Just a thought!
Hugs, Sarn xxx
Thanks for that Sarn :-) xxDelete
