I know I've been absent from blogging for quite some time and the dust hasn't quite settled yet. As soon as it does, I promise to be back on track and try and keep the blog updated more regularly when time permits. In the meantime, here's something to whet your apetite.
My apologies for the shadow in the photo, I took this photo in a hurry and didn't set up my light box hence the shadow of my head in the bottom!
I made this for my friend whose birthday it was yesterday and used the "My Friend" stamp set, Page 19 in the new Spring Mini available both in wood mount and clear mount and the sentiment is from the Delightful Dozen, Page 85 of the main Idea Book & Catalogue. I used Island Indigo and Pool Party to co-ordinate with the gift wrap paper I wrapped her present in - it was just the right shade! I used a two-way glue pen on the hanging dew drops and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on it to give it that extra bling! What girl can resist bling!
This is the top of the inside of the card. As I'd already written a message on the bottom half, I've cropped the photo. I used tone on tone, so stamped with Island Indigo ink onto Island Indigo cardstock. The butterflies are cut from one of the Embosslits Dies called Beautiful Butterflies. These dies emboss and cut at the same time.
I just love that ruffle ribbon on the front of the card and how it coordinates so beautifully with the cardstock.
My friend loved it! I hope you do too.
