Hi everyone!

I finished making and recording the Summer card last night, but when It came to editing the video, i discovered only half the video existed, goodness know’s what happened, so I decided to finish the blog post, and head up the garden to re-make the video and create another card!

How are you?

It is a lovely sunny Sunday here today and it is also my son’s birthday… which we will celebrate once he emerges from his bed!

My husband left early this morning to run his mum to the airport, so I headed up the garden for a spot of crafting

I really love to incorporate fabric and lace in my cards.. today’s card does just that..

I cut a small square of batting, layered it with some natural fabric, stitched around the edge with orange thread, added a scrap of vintage lace, a smidge of yellow ribbon and topped it with a little star button.

How are you

 

other supplies used:-

  • Heavyweight white cardstock for the base and front panel
  • Clearly Besotted “A Little Sentimental” stamp set
  • Hero Arts Cup O’ Joe Mid Tone Shaddow Ink
  • Stampin up dimensional adhesive

  • Colall All Purpose Glue
