Baby Girl card

This card is for an order I got yesterday for a card for a baby girl. The image is de-coupaged and the I have added glitter to the hearts, the stripes on the babygrow, the edge of the bottle and the middle of the ball. I have heat embossed the silver writing so it matched the name which I printed off and then traced onto vellum.

More birthday cards

These cards are for my step brother's birthday.
This first one is made using this template. I have used metallic card for the top of the can and holographic card for the main body. The writing I printed off on the computer and then traced onto vellum and heat embossed it.

This is the second card for my step brother I'm not that happy with this one. The papers are papermania ones, the sentiment is a peel off and I have heat embossed the circles and the edge of the paper in the middle.

Birthday cards

Here's the first of the cards I made last night this one is for my stepmums birthday.
The image is Anya pretty hat by greetings farm I have coloured it with pencils and added a flower to her hat and gems as the necklace and a small heart gem on the dogs collar. The papers are basic grey cupcake.

This is the second card I have made for my stepmums birthday. I have cut the front of the card diagonally and stuck a scalloped circle on the front section onto which I have mounted a piece of blue handmade paper and the a Daisy and Dandilion sticker (thanks was in my stash from Rainmac). I have glittered the edge of the scallopped circle but you can't really see from the picture. The sentiment is also from the same set of stickers.

80th Birthday Card

Here's a card I have made for a friend

Found it really difficult to decorate this because of its shape. the background paper is printed off then I have glittered all the swirls with a sakura pen and stuck small gems on. The butterfly is a peeloff stuck on thin pink paper and mounted on a foam pad and the flowers are punched out of the same pink paper and attached with mini silver brads I have also glittered them. I have heat embossed the name joyce onto vellum.
