So i believe i mentioned my recent shoping at The Works, not only did i get the fancy birdcage cutter (featured in the previous post) but i got a set of circle cutters each with a subtle stitch effect around the outer edge. No more time consuming cutting out by hand!
The flowers in this card are cut from the layered sleeve of a box of chocolates, I love to find ways to reuse things!
Unfortunately I have to confess to buying yet more craft items. Me and my husband went to visit the in-laws over the weekend and we stopped in Liverpool to stretch our legs before catching a train to Huddersfield. This of course ment visiting the art shop where i found three tiny die cutters at just £1.50 each! So i now have a tag, frame and bird to add to my growing collection.
I think the bird shape is delicate and beautiful, it is fast becoming a new favourite of mine. For this card I simply stuck down three patterened birds onto metalic pink card ,purchased from TheWorks, and added a little more detail with white flowers (sticking a pearl sticker in the center), pink ribbon and one golden sticky gem in the bottom corner.
I really love this card and for once i feel i haven’t made the card to busy.
This card was a very quick make using hunky dory paper and a few butterflies from my huge stash. Then i simply added a double tag to the basket image doing my best to make it look as though connected to the handle of the basket. I love it when a card just works how you hoped without any stress.
So there is another three cards made with my newest cutters. Thanks for reading.
