How was your weekend? I hope you were able to do something nice. We made a trip to a nearby Waitrose so I could buy some Chilli Jam to make one of the the recipes in the Jamie Oliver Five Ingredients cookbook that I got for Christmas. We had to make a special trip as we couldn't find anywhere else that stocked Chilli Jam. The rest of the day we spent tidying the rabbit room, which had become something of a tip, as they are coming to stay next weekend. On Sunday we went to see the Darkest Hour a very dramatic film.
I made this card with the bonus papers that would have been in the next edition of Quick Cards Made Easy magazine. But as we all know the issue at the end of December was their last one ever. I did like the magazine a lot it is a shame it has gone. I am pleased that all the staff got jobs on other publications.
When the papers sent I printed them all. I started by looking at the sentiments and I decided to make a Mother's Day card. The papers were very pretty. There was always a stipulation that the card was square and no more than 150cm x 150cm. I used entwined heart dies to make a fussy background.
So this is the sentiment I chose and I made a frame for it using some of the card from the mats and layers.
Then I used a punch to make the butterflies they added some extra detail to the card. I still like using punches they are quick. Did you spot the heart button in the corners. I bought those at the Makery in Bath where we went for my daughter's hen party. That seems so long ago now.
I still feel it is a shame that the magazine closed. I hope you had a great week
