Lauren’s Very Special Card


Here is a very special card for a very special little girl her name is Lauren and she is my granddaughter. Have not been home yet to see my grandchildren since the beginning of March and miss them all so much.

Not sure if this has been done before …. probably has but I haven’t seen it yet …. I made the diamond pop up card for her but it looked too small so decided to put in onto an easel card …. turned out really good. If it’s out there let me know would love to see what other bloggers have created.

Made another flower with lace but to make it zing I added a paper flower, rose and a butterfly. Added lots of sparkle to her name and number also onto the stamped images. Coloured little Mimosa and Mimo Roses with pro-markers. Cut out name and number and then 3D them with foam pads.

Creatible Belli challenge wanted birthday with old and forgotton …. the old …. I used my Cricut Expression, which has been stuck in the cupboard for a long time …. Andrew bought it for Christmas for me 3 years ago, complete surprise, and I have hardly used it. Wanted to add Lauren’s name to the card so dragged it out of the cupboard …. dusted it off and set it to work. I am really going to try and get on with it. Entering for these challenges:

Sandie and Evonne they are totally awesome crafters.

Confession time girls the lovely Laura …. (think I’ll start calling her LL for short) …. sent us DT girls lots of lovely goodies at the start of last month …. just loved everything …. so much so that I didn’t want to use any of it …. (I know everyone of you can relate to this) …. all been sitting on my desk and me drooling over it. Apart from the stamped image everything can be found at Laura’s Shop which is now open to the public for the first time.

As soon as I saw these Cavendish Ladies stamped images I just knew what to use them with …. yep …. Laura’s goodies …. for my DT card …. I know Laura …. better late than never, but have used them and lots left over so I can still drool.

Used another image from At The Races and as hard as I tried not to ink anything my hands would not listen to my brain and before I knew it the edges were inked …. what am I like …. just love vintage.

Check out my other new goodies a …. Marianne Creatables …. similar to Nestabilities but half the price and oh so delicate, the die cut includes the flourishes and a frame …. neat eh?
