This is the (more or less) finished card, I just need to come up with a suitable insert for it. I love to decorate my designs with seed beads and I have used Gutermann rocailles size 9 for this. I have used paper flowers to make the centre posy, together with some "grass" (made by snipping a small piece of green card) and some more beads. I am quite pleased with the end result and hope my niece will like it!

Shaped card and mats

This is the "bare bones" of the card I have designed for my niece's birthday in November (thought I'd do it now so I can concentrate on Christmas!) I only have one more birthday to make for before Christmas

You can see the finished card below. I have cut the two mats in 170gsm Conqueror Concept card and I have cut the "lining" in 90gsm pearlised paper. The base card is an ordinary bog standard 230 gsm white card.

New to this game!

I am very new to this blogging game and quite nervous about publishing content on the internet. However I have been asked by a lady in the US if she could have a link for some of the (crafting) work I have undertaken so here goes. This blog is mainly for her benefit and those ladies who attend her crafting sessions
