So, this is the card I managed to rustle up in the chaos yesterday. On Tuesday a colleague in another team asked if I could make a good luck card for her student who is finishing her final placement and is expecting a baby boy in a couple of months, so could I include that too? She didn't need the card for a couple of weeks, but as I'm on leave then I had to get the card to her today.
I started of with an 8x8 card blank and layered up some silver and yellow card. I die cut a sheet of clouds from the Craftwork cards Washing line collection and some green card with a spellbinders grand square die and cut to give the illusion of grass. I mounted the grass on foam tape to allow me to poke the coffee stirrers behind it to act as poles. I added some bakers twine to form the washing line and added some baby clothes from the washing line collection.
I used the lili of the valley lucky cats stamp and decoupaged it up and coloured with my copics. I used Sue Wilson's ivy die and some paper flowers and added the sentiment using a lili of the valley stamp. Finally, I couldn't resist a little bit of faux stitching to finish it off.
Wow Cara what an amazing card design and details.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous card - and what a great use of coffee stirrers!ReplyDelete
Super looking card Cara. XxxReplyDelete
I think you have covered both requirements for this card admirably. I love the baby clothes line and the great idea to raise the grass do the poles slipped behind. Good thinking. Hugs Mrs A.ReplyDelete
Cara, I love this, I love the cats surrounding the horseshoe and inspired work using the coffee stirrers. The paper flowers are making me swoon a bit...CxReplyDelete
Cara this is a fantastic card. You've given so much thought to the construction and put so many wonderful elements into it. You've created the most delightful and happy scene. A really special card indeed. BarbxxReplyDelete
Fabulous card Cara, I love all the images especially the lucky cats, I'm sure the recipient will love it, great design, Kate xReplyDelete
Oh my goodness this is so cute and the flowers are just gorgeous!ReplyDelete
This is a fabulous personalised card. Not a quickie but definitely worth the effort. I had to laugh at the coffee sticks as I save them too - mainly as glue sticks. I had funny looks today as I unwrapped the card insulation from a paper cup to add to my useful stash!ReplyDelete
