Special card - special daughter.

Hi all,

Sharing the 8" x 8" card I created for our daughter's 21st last weekend.  My initial inspiration was taken from Pinterest: craftingcottage.wordpress.com - thank you.


I embossed the background with assorted embossing folders. Martha Stewart punch and paper from Craftwork Cards. Stamped butterflies created with matching dies.  Diamond Glaze added to the coordinating card candy and a few selected butterflies on the backing paper.  As always glitter glue and crystals.  All in all the card took me 3 hours of playing.........sure if I made one similar it might not take quite so long.....ha ha.  
Have had a lovely weekend experimenting with different crafts....had loads of fun yesterday afternoon - brusho and silhouette stamps......will share another day... xxGaynor

Anyhow here's my make, sequence of piccies as usual...yes a picture does "paint a thousand words":








I added diamond glaze to the baubles, the trio of cats, adhesive red and clear crystals and a little glitter glue...and here is the card that inspired today's make:


Hope you likey........................xxGaynor and all at Little Claire.

Little Claire - November Club Set

Hi,

Catching up as usual - had a busy few days - still can't believe that our daughter is now 21, love her to bits!

Here are a couple of cards created using the cutie November Club pack - the majority of card makers need an elephant or two stamp in their stash.  Whilst the set does have a cutie feel it is not confined to new birth, or youngster cards.......great for get well, birthday, congratulations etc.
