I’m not quite sure how my posting habit has suddenly gone rusty, but I have a card to share with you today – one of the make & takes from my recent launch parties. We had a lot of fun and if you missed it, just get in touch – I can bring the launch party fun to you, assuming you live in or near Swindon! I will be posting on Wednesdays and at the weekends from now on so I look forward to seeing you here.
This card is simple but effective, I think. For those of us that need a lot of birthday cards (and I do), it’s quick to make but it’s an elegant card that people like to receive. Speaking of receiving birthday cards, if you’d like to receive a handmade card from me on your birthday please get in touch. There’s no catch -the worst that will happen is you’ll receive a free class pass as well as your card!
This is a one layer card made using the thick whisper white cardstock, which I love. I didn’t make one layer cards before this came along! Firstly I stamped the sentiment from Dragonfly Dreams in Island indigo. I then stamped the detailed dragonfly body from the same stamp set smoky slate ink, then stamped the body with Island Indigo, stamped off once. Finally, I coloured the wings in with the clear Wink of Stella pen, to add glimmer and shine. Because it’s translucent, you still see all the beautiful detail
That’s it, I hole you like it! See you on Wednesday for my second make & take.
