Retirement Card

This card is a large 8x8 square card.
I used the images from the Almond Blossom Fairie from Crafters Companion Flower Fairies Cd.
The image has been pyramaged,thinly layered to keep the effect.

I printed the 8x8 backings papers straight from the cd and cut the card accordingly, leaving a small edge. The flowers are from my Hot off the press stash and I added the sentiment on the interactive part on the cd.

This is a close up of the pyramage.

Prom shoe...

I have just been asked to make a shoe for a young lady going to her school prom, this template is so adaptable to any papers and you can over dress or under dress it up! This is the Cut & Craft Shoe Template
I used prima flowers,Basic grey brads and the card for the main shoe is lovely mother of pearl type effect pink, I used a brother p-touch label printer for 'with Love' in the shoe. I used a jump ring to give the effect of the pin on the strap.
In the base I made a false floor using acetate and sprinkled stamped stars in the bottom.

This is using a template I've had for ages,but never had the time to play with it.
It is a tiny Carousel from Card Carousel, it needs a bit more dressing up perhaps but love just the white and pink. this has a little box under the base so makes a lovely gift box/keepsake for a new baby.

Last Design Team Card for Dotties World

I have after much deliberation decided, to step down as a Design TeamMember on Dotties World, I have been on the Team since the beginning,but now alas it is getting more difficult to get my cards in on time and I think the others are so much more talented than me,with all the fancy papers and brads etc.
This card is using the Chilled out Mikey image and I deliberately left the background plain using denium & grey coloured card to make it look a bit like a jacket or jeans,I used Copcs to colour him and a cropadile for the eyelets.
I wish Louise all the luck she deserves for the future, as she is an amazing talent!!
