Pink and girlie flower power!

Pink and girlie flower power!

I’m still very behind with my blogging- I’ve been crafting but not necessarily getting cards done.
This is a girlie birthday card I’ve made. It needed to be posted so had to be quite flat.

I used a LOTV die cut as I was in a rush! I coloured the background using distress ink and also used it to edge the card.
The beautiful background paper was from stash and meant I could keep my embellies simple- ribbons, a flower from stash and  gem flower and butterflies coloured with my Promarker.
I was in such a rush to post this that I only took one photo and forgot to show the matching decoration inside!

This matches the card I posted yesterday. I used two saturated canary digis to show the bookhead in and out (at I library I’ve decided!!). I created the background to the digis using Craft Artist.
I sanded the wooden blank edges and coloured them with distress inks and then stuck on Tim Holtz dictionary pages. I then resanded the edges and coloured them with distress ink.

I coloured the digis with Pro and flexmarkers and highlighted with pearlescent ink. I used glossy accents on the eyes and lips.

I used ribbons from clothing and buttons to attach the base card.  I punched two circles of the Tim Holtz paper and attached them together with foam pads with the writing facing inwards. I made the heart paper using Craft Artist.

 This is the other side.

I made the flowers and leaves using punches and then coloured and added gems in the centre.

It took me a long time but I love the end result.

This is my card for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
I’ve been trying to recycle packaging when cardmaking where possible. I had a phase eight bag to recycle and I realised the P was actually like the breast cancer awareness ribbon. The bag also has pink and black polka dot card and black card that i used as the basis for making the tag. Everything else is from stash.
