Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 158

This challenge is to make something for a special woman, and in this case, I chose to make a card for my daughter. It doesn't seem natural to me to call her a woman because she's my little girl, but she's going to be 22, so it really does apply!


I've used an image and paper from the Bebunni collection from Crafter's Companion, although I will admit to altering the shading in the paper to better match the image, and I added a personalised sentiment to the image - both in Photoshop Elements. I kept the design fairly simple, just adding some matting and a floral frame made using, I think, Cheery Lynn dies, and finished the flowers with a drop of Liquid Pearl.

I hope you can join us this time.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 157

The challenge theme this time at Crafty Cardmakers is Love, Love, Love! So, anything that depicts love is fine!

At this time of year of course, with Valentine's Day just around the corner, I decided to make a card for my husband, who like other men in my family like things fairly plain. Hence, I've gone for a fairly simple design on this one.

The image is a very old digi from Cuddly Buddly to which I added the sentiment in Photoshop Elements. I coloured with Promarkers, and took a section of the image and tiled it to make the background paper. And, apart from rounding the corners of the image and mat, that's it.

I hope you can join us this time.
