About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Floral Anniversary!

I made this anniversary card using a Hunkydory Lace Bouquet base card and topper - I love the pretty pink tones - perfect for Spring (although not perhaps with the weather we've been having)!!

I chose to simply mount the topper, starting with the largest mat cut from plain pink paper with a circle nestie, and inked whilst still in the die with Victorian Velvet DI. I then used a white glitter card scalloped circle, and a pink vellum splendid circle (you can't see much of it, but I like the different edge it gives). All the papers and card have been in my stash for ages!!

I also cut some swirls from the pink vellum using Spellbinders Floral Swirls to add a little more interest. The sentiment is stamped onto the pink paper with a cheapie 99p alphabet stamp set. Because they are impossible to line up, I went for a more random look with the text!! This was cut using the Triple Scallop edgeability, and mounted onto pink vellum, white glitter card, and more of the pink paper.

I would like to enter this into the One Stop Craft Challenge -
