Graphic 45 By The Sea

Image
The second new Graphic 45 papers are named By The Sea. As the name suggests there are lots of nautical scenes in this one. 


I used  a square card layered with linen card and By The Sea paper, added a die cut card and cut around several parts from other pages for the scene along the bottom of the card.

Birthday Card

Image
A friend recently asked me to make a card for a family member . I had very specific instructions, had to have some trees, gravel and creek/water, maybe some flowers like lavender, a dog and some chooks.

I will admit to being a bit stumped for a while, mostly on the scale I needed to use for trees etc . I finally came across this digi image of some trees so I did my background with ripped card then printed the trees over the top and added some stamped trees as well. Flower Soft became the "lavender" the chooks were cut from Graphic 45 French Country paper and the dog is a Sticker Store clear sticker which I layered with black card and reversed. I finished off by chalking a few highlights and adding a greeting. Our friend was very happy with the result.

Craft Mad Card Sketch Challenge for April

Image
This month we have a guest designer for our Card Sketch Challenge at Craft Mad . This card was made by my sister in law Ruth for my birthday and I just loved it . Although the concept of 3 square is simple, the finished card is very effective especially with the addition of the circular die behind the smallest square.
