How is your week going? We have seen some wonderful sunshine which has been nice. I have been having a quiet time but I am still finding it hard to craft. One day was wiped out with a massive headache. On the plus side my parents seem to have settled down with their care package and they seem a lot happier. Another piece of good news it that we became Great Aunt and Uncle this week our niece gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter. We had lots of fun in Next picking out a gift to send. All the baby things are just so cute.
I decided to make another card with the flowers I made a few weeks ago.
I used a lot of dies from John Next Door. For the background I used some inky kitchen roll that had been stuck to card. Over this I put the Gerbera Corner die cut in white.
This this the sentiment that comes with the Small Butterfly die set I cut it with the inky paper and made a shadow of gold. I do this often with die cut sentiments it helps them to stand out from the background.
When you use the Gerbera die you get so many flowers. I stuck two of each size together after shaping adding a pearl to the centre. I do love the small butterfly dies.
Enjoy the rest of the week. I am still trying to finish the ten Christmas cards for my husband's work colleagues.
