I'm here today with a very girly card that can be used for a friend, using lots of yummy products from Swedish House Crafts. I used some of my favourite papers from Maja Design, the Sofiero collection which is so unbelievably pretty. There is also something Christmassy on this card, can you see it?
Yes its the leaves. I have used Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns' and I think these can be used all year round. They are my favourite leaf die. A couple of years ago I was going to give up crafting and sold ALL of my Magnolia dies and whilst my collection is now bigger than it was before, there are a few dies I still haven't been able buy yet :-( However imagine my excitement when I saw Suha had these in stock the other week......I may have done a little dance around lol.
The flowers are all handmade by me from white foamiran, the larger one I used a candle and foamiran and I tried something different.....I love how it turned out. I added beautiful Glistening White Pomegranates from Suha's store, love these!!!
Before I joined Swediish House Crafts DT I bought the Magnolia Doohickey Collection from Suha and if you order one from her within a certain time you get a free gift worth £20........now how fantastic is that....BARGAIN!!! Ker-Ching....
So I ordered Volume 16 and chose this Magnolia Dream Tag which again I used to have but had sold it. Thank goodness for Swedish House Crafts and all the gorgeous Swedish Products we can buy, insert BIG smiley face here lol. ;-)
I added a pre-printed image which I cut into portions to make this sweet little girl 3D. The base image I cut out using Gummiapan Stitched Rectangles.......I love Gummiapan stamps and dies, seriously I cannot recommend them enough.
If you haven't tried them yet and its because you have been abducted by aliens and then hidden away on some space ship in a far far away Galaxy....... Well I completely understand, BUT......now you are back down on Earth safely.... well your first port of call should be Swedish House Crafts......make yourself a cuppa and browse and shop all the fabulous goodies. You MUST try Gummiapan though!!!
Another view of the 3D paper piecing I did using a LOTV Simply Print. I printed them out & then used 1 of the images as my base image & then cut pieces of the other images to make her 3D.
I think I used 3 images in total, I did this image a couple of months ago so I'm struggling remember lol.
The butterflies are from Stempelglede & I coloured them with distress inks & fussy cut them out.
As always I have decorated inside to match the front. The reason I do this is because I think it's a perfect added touch It shows extra love and you don't have the solid heavy front that feels solid and well crafted and then a flimsy back. It's worth going the extra mile even though we have to cut into more of our yummy paper ;-)
Thanks for stopping by
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
