Easel card made with an 8 x 8 inch scallop card blank.
Papers are Tilda, the flowers and insect are die-cuts from one of the Tilda paper pads.
Sentiment die is by Tonic, I've layered it and added Glossy Accents, chicken wire die is MFT.
I have the cleverest ladies at my card club.
The very talented Jan showed us how to recycle a boring old Pringles tube (other savoury snacks are available but these small tubes are only 3 for £1 at one of the pound-shop places)
I could never have figured this out by myself - yes I could cover the base but I wouldn't have known how to make the lid.
I used Tilda papers and cheap flowers from The Range for this one.
It's my friend Steven's birthday today, his mum is a crafter so I know she will be examining his card.
I decided to only sprinkle embossing powder on part of the stamped sentiment to give a two-tone effect. The background has been created with Versamark ink and clear and gold powders. Stamps are all SU.
For this card I played around with some SU stamps and decided to use some of their dictionary- style paper too.
Finished the card and only then noticed the wording printed on the paper "urinary tract infection".
Why on earth would you want that printed on your card/ layout?
I tried using a cocktail stick dragged in ink over the wording to hide it a little but it's still very noticeable.
Maybe I could give it as a get well soon card for someone having problems in that area?
