This is a card that I made for my delightful great-niece Chelsea, for her 9th birthday last month. Chelsea takes Karate lessons from her Granddad who is a Sensei at his karate club. She has just earned her orange belt so I thought that I'd pop this cute karate-kid on her card.
The card base is a scalloped 8" square. The papers are freebie Nit-Wits and the Happy Birthday sentiment was cut from a free die (gotta love freebies!) 'Chelsea' & '9' were cut from the same pink glittercard as the sentiment. I finished the card off with a felt flower- yet another freebie. Blimey! this was an expensive card to make-not!

Peppa Pig for Lottie Rose.......

Krishnan's girlfriend Sofia asked me to make a couple of cards for her cousin's little girl Lottie Rose who was one a couple of months ago. Apparently she loves Peppa Pig. Hold the phone! Where was I going to find Peppa Pig on a cartridge? Nowhere! So I went to my trusty go-to when in crafty trouble, Google Images, and downloaded a line drawing of Peppa, which I used to hand-cut a passable version for Lottie's card. I adhered her to a scalloped square, and gave her a speech bubble with a computer generated sentiment. I added some punched flowers to the grass and a (securely fastened!) fabric rose to the speech bubble. A smattering of pink gems completes the card........

....and what little girl doesn't love a dollies pram? This cute little girl was cut from coloured cardstock and then adhered to a scalloped square. The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment was computer generated onto patterned paper and I added the '1st' cut from pink glittercard as was the 'Lottie Rose' I added some punched daisies to the 'grass' and a smattering of gems to complete the card.
Both card bases are 8x8 scalloped squares.

Gettin' Hitched!......

I have been making an awful lot of wedding cards just lately, either for commissions or personal use.
I made this one, for no particular reason other than that I liked the image. I think that it would be suitable for either a church wedding, registry office or civil ceremony in a grand house!
I used an 8" scalloped card base and added an embossed and matted panel to the front of the card. Before adhering it to the card I wrapped pink satin ribbon threaded through a gemstone buckle around the bottom of the panel.
The funky couple were cut from plain white card coloured with a Blush Promarker for the skin, then the layers (dress and tux) were cut from white and black pearlised cardstock. The bride's dress was embossed, and I added teeny sequin flowers to her headband. I also gave her a pearl necklace and bracelet. The bouquet was enhanced with punched flowers, created with a Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch. The couple were adhered to the card with foam pads.
'Gettin' Hitched' was cut from black pearlised cardstock and adhered flat. A smattering of pearls completes the card.
