Pink Birthday Cards

Good Morning Everyone!

I have a couple of pink birthday cards to share with you today… 2 the same but slightly different πŸ˜‰

I have challenged myself to use the craft supplies that I have and not to buy any new things for a year… apart from the essential adhesives. Β  Β  I did it a few years back and I am sure I will be able to do it again πŸ™‚ wish me luck!

I used butterflies from my stash to feature as the focal point of the card.. one had a backer and the other didn’t hence the same but different cards πŸ™‚

I painted them using 2 different paints, the back being Paperartsy blush and the top filigree layer using silver starlight paint.

Supplies List:-

  • Heavyweight white cardstock from Ross Papercraft for the base
  • Recollections 12 x 12 patterned paper
  • Silver textured cardstock
  • Lil Inker Stitched Square Dies
  • Clearly Besotted happy + birthday dies
  • Zig Glue Pen
  • Sellotape double sided tape

The card below does not have the backing to the butterfly like the card above and it glued directly onto the card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card… it is amazing what you can make by using what you have in your current supplies… Β it is so tempting to spend money and buy all the latest releases isn’t it πŸ™‚

Here is the video of how I made the cards today πŸ™‚

One of these cards was made for a an order and the other card will be available in my etsy store www.etsy.com/shop/seafoamblueΒ (now sold) thank you Gina xx

As always thank you for popping round

Just Saying Hello!

I have the day off work today to make it a nice long weekend break, so I headed up to my workshop and started creating πŸ™‚
