Hello again :)
Today I have a birthday set to share. The little girl die cut is from Lili of the Valley and I inked around the edges with distress ink and matted it on MME 'So Sophie' paper. In the photo the paper looks very brown but in reality it has a pinky /purple tinge. The flowers are Prima e-line and the felt leaves are Making Memories.
I don't make easel cards very often, mainly because I don't know where to put a verse or message! For this one though, I added eyelets, tied string through both and tucked the little tag under - if that makes sense!
The matching bag is the same cutting file from My Time Made Easy, that I used to make the Christmas bags. If you don't have a cutting machine you can buy the file in pdf format and cut it by hand. I made the matching card box by cutting 2 sheets of A4 card to size and scoring them with my Groovy Duo scoring board.
I added lots of rolled flowers - I love making these and once I get started it's hard to stop! They are made by cutting a rough circle with scissors, cutting it into a spiral and rolling it up from the outside to the centre. Finish the end with a spot of glue to hold it all together.
I was at a patchwork class on Saturday learning to how make a flannel quilt. When I was getting ready to go that morning, Caleb saw my material sitting on the table and asked, 'Oh are you making an old fashioned quilt today?'........ I think I'd rather call it 'rustic' :)
Thanks for joining me today and see you soon :)
I'm entering this in the Divas by Design Challenge - Anything goes
