2 cards for my friend
My friend keeps me quite busy making cards for her friends and family. These are birthday cards for her mother and her son.
The Papermania paper was the inspiration for the Mum's card. There is a sheet of paper similar to the effect on this card in the pack, but it was too large for my purposes so I cut down each individual square in order to make them fit. It took the colours from the Secret Crafter's Challenge this week, although the shades of green and pink are somewhat muted. The butterfly is Cuttlebug, and the flower and leaves are from Woodware punches.
As this card has a certain amount of Bling & Twinkle I thought it would also fit with Charisma Cards' theme of 'Diamonds are a girl's best friend'!
The son's card has been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and the lettering is from the Cuttlebug Typewriter alphabet. The stars are cut with an X Cut punch and are in line with Our Creative Corner's theme this week. The image is from a clear stamp set, I think it's something to do with Hollywood, but I don't exactly remember the name of the maker. I really ought to be a little more organised and keep the packaging of my clear sets so that I know what I am using!
As both cards include numbers, either could be considered for the Challenge at One STOP crafts this week.
