My car is now back, after a couple of days with a little 1L petrol that didn't have a CD player!! The car itself was not actually too bad, but the lack of CD player meant no audio-book for my journey to work. I had to listen to the radio, and the music at the moment really does leave something to be desired!!
So I have made another two cards from that one piece of patterned paper, some red card, toppers and dies. These were for my monthly themes for crafting group over on facebook.
One and Only
Flowers for You
www.craftsy.com/blog/2015/01/how-to-make-easel-cards/ I cut a panel from the patterned paper and also a slightly larger panel from the red card, and added to the centre of the easel. I wrapped a gosamer ribbon, with black flower details, around the easel and tied in a knot to one side of the panel. I added a felt butterfly to the other side for balance. I stamped the sentiment, which is a Woodware stamp, in red ink and die-cut using a nesting butterfly I got free with Crafts Beautiful magazine. This was placed in the centre of the bottom panel using foam pads to hold the easel top open. A red flower was added to finish.
This particular card I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday - Flora and Fauna
Glitter 'n' Sparkle #196 Easel card
Crafty Ribbons #159 Things with Wings
Inkspirational #112 Anything Goes with red
Here are some photos from down on the allotment yesterday:
And finally my little birdies enjoying the sunshine:
Thank you for looking - and watch out for the next post with the final three cards made from that one piece of patterned paper!
