Gorjuss Birthday Card

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your weekend shaping up? I wonder how many of you are at the NEC? If you are I hope you are having a wonderful time and not spending too much money. We are staying home having a quiet weekend catching up on a few jobs.

This the  birthday card I have made for my cousin. We will actually be seeing her on her birthday as we are going all the way to Lowestoft to see her daughter in a production of Alice in Wonderland before rushing home to collect our daughter and heading home for Easter. Her boyfriend will be joining us for Easter Sunday  and they will both be sewing. They make cosplay costumes for conventions. When they have something finished I will share it here on my blog.


The upside to having  a sort out is that you rediscover things in your crafty stash that you had forgotten that you had. Hence the Gorjuss decoupage image that I found to use on this card. The image determined the colour scheme of the card. I found a beautiful paper in my stash. The ribbon was in my stash too I liked the stripes, like the stripes on her stockings, unfortunately there wasn't enough for a bow. 


I stuck the base image to a small piece of the backing paper and then I made a frame for the image. I decorated the frame with some die cuts from a Tattered Lace mini die that I received today. There is an offer in the April issue of Making Cards  magazine to get five Tattered Lace mini dies you just have to pay the postage of £2.95. The little heart I cut from the paper round the image with a small heart die. 


I made the flowers with the Sue Wilson Delicate Daisy dies. The leaves were cut with the Sue Wilson Faux Quilled leaves. I have given in and ordered one of those tools Spellbinders sell that get all the little bits out of the dies as I do find this rather tedious.  


I do hope you have a great weekend and that you find some craft time. I am planning to do a bit on the wedding invitations. 

Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie

  17. Just fabulous I love this image and the decoupage is lovely ages since I did any. Those flowers and leaves are a stunning finish. You are right about things you forget about when I saw your card it reminded me that I bought this stamp ages ago and as with all us crafty people it was a good idea at the time but I've never used it so you may have inspired me !! Enjoy your weekend Love and hugs Carole x

  28. Hi Jackie
    What a beautiful card, I love the colour and the Daisy's fit the style perfectly. The ribbon is lovely, but works really well as the background - how long did it take you to use it rather than just stroking it! You are really good at finding bargains aren't you, I must check that one out.
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful card. Enjoy your weekend. Love Diane xxx
