I hope you're all having a lovely weekend :)
As it's the beginning of September I would normally be sharing a new scrap map for
Creative Craft World but our blog hop started last Thursday and will continue this week, so the scrap map is postponed until next Saturday.
You can check out the details of the blog hop here and there are some fab prizes to be won!
My project will be on Wednesday.....
Over the summer I've been asked to make some projects which I'm only able to share after the event has passed and this birthday card is one of them.
I didn't have much time to make it as I had to post it to England in time for them to hand deliver it to their daughter in Scotland, so I turned to my trusty Cameo!
The sentiment is printed on the computer (I didn't use print and cut for this one) and then I loaded the 10x10cm square in the Cameo and cut out the '30'
On the 15cm base card I layered swirly pink card near the bottom right corner and then layered the square on top using foam pads for dimension.
The butterflies are a mixture of Cameo die cuts and punches and I adhered them with a thin line of glue to the body and then raised the wings. Next I put a tiny blob of pinflair glue gel underneath each wing to keep them raised. To finish I doodled little antenna on each and made a butterfly trail of tiny adhesive gems from Meiflower.
I'm glad to say the recipent loved it!
Friday was a big day for us as our two youngest returned to school.
After 9 weeks of school holidays, it's nice to have a little bit of quiet in the house again..... :)
I made Phoebe a P.E. bag for last year which she wants to use again this year. I never got round to posting it on this blog but if you'd like to see it, you can find it here.
Thank you for visiting today
and I'll be back tomorrow with another card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
