Midway post for My Besties International

Good afternoon, I'm back again this time for my Midway Inspiration card for My Besties International.  Oh my word this time round I used the magical image created by Sherry called
Moon Dance Magical Creatures.

What I did

  • White card cut to size
  • Printed the image and then fussy cut
  • Faber Castell pencils used
  • Around the sun I created a template, using a crafting knife I cut every other strand of the sun out, then used the template as a stencil I used chalk and then paint splatters
  • backing paper

Envelope card

Good afternoon everyone!
It's been a few days since my last post, I have had no computer for the last few days, my laptop is with Lee this week. All is back to normal now though and back up and running again.

I also have a few days off, back to work on Monday so a nice little break for me, Lee is home tomorrow, so we plan on going on a date night which will be lovely.

Today I have been crafting and decided to make an envelope card, I've never made one before but they are easy to do and I like how this one has turned out.  There are a few pictures for this one sorry!

Envelope card

What I did

  • Using white card I folded the card to create a envelope
  • Using a smaller piece of white card I made a fan effect and fastened this to to the inside of the card to create a purse effect
  • I used a die cut butterfly and swirl which came free in a magazine a little while ago
  • Roses I had in my stash, also the pearls
  • Larger white flowers were created using scrunched up paper
  • Pink and purple pens to create the squiggley lines
  • Ribbon from my stash
