Prue's Card

Card for my non-blogging friend, Prue (I know.. she spells it with an 'E' on the end)... Birthday tomorrow. Hope it arrives in time!

Some of it is a bit dejà vu from the previous card, but you will probably get fed up with that look before I do! lol ;o) I luuuurrrvvvveee it!

You wouldn't recognise it under the flourish stamping and Craft Planet glitter glue coating, but the letters are made with K & Co paper, printed using Wordart in MS Word and enlarged. Inked around the edges with dark brown Chalkeyes, then mounted on green Bazzill cs.. also with inky edges. The flourish stamp makes another appearance (or two) on the background.

The sentiment is a Lisa Bearnson font from a CD-Rom that came with a book purchased through QVC some time ago. It looks just like a Dymo label, but I'm not sure you'd get one in that colour!

The butterfly is a Cuttlebugged embossing die that I have chalked, inked and cut out. It looks flat in the photo, but it is shaped and raised off the card.

Thanks to everyone who has visited my blog and left a message. It's lovely to get your feedback. :o) You're a lovely bunch, and it's been wonderful coming over to visit you all as well!

  2. WoW! This is superb! I love the way you used the beautiful patterned paper for the letters only (and the butterfly?) - great idea!!
    And the swirls are so elegant, and the embellies goes just perfect with the rest! Thank you for the inspiration!

    Hugs, Lena
