The weekend is here. What have you got planned? Will there be any crafting involved? We are having a quiet weekend I have a lot of card making I need to get caught up with so I should be crafting. Those of you that know me on Facebook will know that I won't be able to resist going out for coffee and maybe cake at some point.
I think I said before that there are a few people leaving work at the end of term. One of the people leaving is my special friend she helped me when I first started working at the school and we have been friends ever since. She has always been supportive about my card making so I wanted to make her something special.
For this card I got my Sue Wilson dies again. I used Carina from the Gemini collection, from the Finishing touches collection Trailing Ivy and from the Austrian collection the Salzburg die set. First I cut all the layers I wanted. On the top purple layer I put two strips of double sided sticky sheet and covered this with CS Iced Diamonds glitter jewels. I cut a white mat to go on top and I cut the sides of it with my Carina die. The middle I embossed with some of the dies from the Salzburg collection.
I used a Spellbinders die to cut the flowers the edges were coloured with Distress ink before the flower was rolled. The ivy was cut in a bright green card and added to the design.
To make the flag I used a die from Sue Wilson Pierced Flag die cut once in purple and once in white. I trimmed the edges from the white one so that it had a purple border. The sentiment was cut with some Signature dies.
I hope she likes this card. As it is an 8" x 8" card I will be making a box to put it in at some point. I am also making a smaller version of this card for someone else who is leaving.
The time just seems to be whizzing by. Enjoy your weekend whatever you get up to.
