How is your week going? As some of you will know my dad has been taken ill and is in hospital. My mum needs a lot of help. The time I can spend blogging and creating is now very limited. I will do what I can to keep up with my commitments. I hope you will bear with me.
Beck to the card. A few weeks back I went to the Newbury Craft show. I knew John Lockwood would be there and I always take him some jelly babies and this time I decided to make him a card. I had just received some of his dies and I wanted to try them out.
This is not a big card. I cut the card blank and I was thrilled that the outer die from the Gerbera Corner Die set had a square die that cut a perfect mat that fitted the card blank perfectly. Then I cut two of the corners out of a paler card stock.
I found a spotty card in my stash an I used that to cut the Gerbera flowers. For the butterflies I cut a dark base for them. I found some paper that I had made using the shaving foam technique and I used that to cut the detail of the butterflies.
This sentiment comes with the small butterflies die set. I think it is going to be very useful.
I think he liked the card I know he liked the jelly babies.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
