Thank You card

Today I have a thank you card to share with you. The butterfly file is one I bought from the Silhouette Store which I've welded into a shaped edge card. The card stock is silver pearlised which I've made into my 6 x 6 card. I've put fuschia pink vellum behind the butterflies to make them stand out. The sentiment was made with my Cameo, it's great to be able to make a sentiment in a variety of fonts and shapes. I've finished my card with matching ribbon and a few gems.

Butterfly edge card

I thought I'd show you this very feminine card before I get busy into the weekend :-) The butterflies are from a file I purchased from the Silhouette Store but I've used just part of it and turned it into a shaped card on my Cameo. When I was learning to do this my talented friend Adele kept me right. My card stock is a lovely pearlised lilac, one of my top 5 colours, I added sparkle to the butterflies with glitter which has a tone of lilac in it. The backing paper is from a stack of Riverbank Revels. I cut my the sentiment which is again from the Store and added some sparkle afterwards. I've kept the insert the same size as the main card to you can see through the butterflies.

I'm kind of back

Hello crafting friends, well I'm sort of back but I hope you will bear with me if I just post perhaps every few days, even stretching to a week. Also again please understand that I can only manage to visit you all around the same time. I'm coping much better but I need to stay active to help myself mentally and physically or I will be the worse for it and end up back where I've struggled from.
I do have a card to share with you today. I've learned quite a lot but I will show you the easier ones first.

As you see it's a silver wedding card. Learning to put a number in a frame is quite basic but that's where it's best to start. I edged the numbers with Stickles which I've not used before and I can't say I'm that thrilled, I'm more of a brush girl I think. I've put silver mirror card behind the numbers in keeping with the theme. The flower is a petal pairs punch which I layered with foam pads and then edged with Stickles. I typed the word Celebrate into Studio, added the layers and made up my sentiment. To finish I've added ribbon with silver hearts on it and placed a few gems between. I've since made this card up in other numbers as numbered cards are handy to have in your stash.
