Just a quick post from me to remind you all that there's still another week or two to enter my "The birds and the bees" challenge. You can check out the original post to enter the challenge or to check out the DT card here.
I also have some more DT inspiration here for you all as well!
I thought that I could also use this as my DT card for my ALBC "The birds and the bees" challenge which you can find here. There are some amazing papers and pretty elements so I decided to use this fab birdie topper and layered it up on my card. There are also some cute housey papers and images which would make great new home cards.
It's quite a simple card but I've left it to the last minute as usual as I had some magazine work that I've just finished.
I'm still on hubby's laptop so I've not got access to all my fonts and
my photo editing software so the piccies aren't the best I'm afraid. I'll try and take more piccies tomorrow in the daytime if I get chance and remember!
Today I have a Mother's Day card that I made which I was going to share with you last week but unfortunately my laptop finally died on me so I lost a lot of stuff.....sob! :(
I'm using the hubby's at the moment until I decide what I am best replacing it with as I honestly don't think it's worth fixing. I've still been gutting my craft room and selling all my excess stuff so it now looks like some of it will be going on a new laptop! :( Hopefully when I get a bit more straight I'd be doing a bit more crafting as it's taken me ages to sort though it all!
Anyhoo, I've been seeing a lot of these 3D card in a box cards recently and thought I'd give it a try! They're actually quite easy when you know how - there are loads of tutorials out there so just google it!
The fab papers are from the new Nitwits Collections kit called Daffodil Joy which are so pretty. Lush pinks and lemons in check, spots and florals as well as some fab toppers.
The beauty of these cards is that they fold flat for cheap posting and they're a little bit different aren't they?
Today I have my DT card for today's ALBC "The birds and the bees" April challenge which starts today. This is a card I made a while ago for Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine for a quick cards feature using papers from a Melody Ross paperstack. I partially cut out a square leaving the bird in tact and then layered up the bird by cutting up the other sheets of paper. You can see the layering on the second piccie better. It's quite simple as it was a meant to be a quick card.
I was planning on using one of the fab Little Claire's digistamps but have been so busy lately trying to clear out my craft room I decided I should make the effort to make Mother's day cards instead. I will use one for the midway reminder on the 15th April instead.
