Time I caught up with blogland, so herewith my recent creations starting with a birthday card for somone who recently developed a passion for playing the guitar. I just love the Rock Star elements from DCWV. I hope he also loved the plaited leather thongs I tied round the card too. I mounted the guitar shape onto thick card so it stand proud and added a few gems to the neck and body. With this card, I had as much fun decorating the inside too :-)
Hot on the heels of that came another birthday card for a chap who loves his console games and, according to his wife, spends way too much time playing them and watching TV, so I doubt he would have been offended at this couch potato themed name book.
A change of style now, for a special Mother's Day card. I loved doing the spirelli; and I clear embossed the flower heads to make them "pop".
Next is the birthday card I made for my sister, who has loved art deco for many years and has collected some beautiful items over the years. I think the current trend for the deco ladies is wonderful, and this card has a pyramage that is level with the aperture when the card is closed, but when opened the pyramage stands proud as the centrepiece of the inside of the card, so it's a nice surprise when you open the card. The card is elegant and stylish, like my Sis :-)
Then there two of the Easter cards I made this year. Still did not make quite as many as I would have liked, but got more done this year than last so am heading in the right direction.
Lastly, a special birthday card for a very special lady.. this template took a couple (!) of attempts to get right, but I hope you agree it is worth it. I think the depth gives the card that "ooohhh" factor.
