The topper is from Kanban and is mounted on a Spellbinders mat cut in silver. The backing paper is again from Kraftyhands CD Finishing Touch.The silver corners are a Joy die and the border is made with a Martha Stewart punch and a Tonic one.I have added a ribbon, some white daisies tipped with pink and some pink pearls.Oh, and a little pink heart.

Father's Day Card

Her is a card I have made for Father's Day and I have included instructions on how I made it.
I have used the Kraftyhands goodies.
For my card I have used a mixture of Man About Town die cut stepper cards and items printed from the Man About Town CD.

Die cut stepper card, topper and sentiment
Ribbon strip and letters from the CD
Gold mirror card
Red card
Dotty ribbon
Dotty brad
Double sided tape
Pinflair glue gel

To Create The Card
First pop out the stepper card from the sheet and fold on the pre-scored lines.

Pop out the topper and a sentiment.I have mounted the sentiment onto red card and the topper onto a mat cut from gold mirror card using the Spellbinders Labels 22 largest die.

Cut out the ribbon strip and thread the dotty ribbon through the slots.
To make the strip stand out from the card I have edged it using a Ruby Promarker.
Add the topper,the ribbon strip and the sentiment to the card using glue gel.

Cut out the letters and stick them to red card with double sided tape and cut out to leave a narrow border.
Add these to the side of the card at a jaunty angle using glue gel.

Pierce a hole at the top left side of the card and add the tassel with the brad.
Hope you like my card.

Sweet Mary Lou.

My card today is made with a digi stamp called 'Sweet Mary Lou' by Sherri Baldy.I have coloured her in with Promarkers.I have then cut her out using a Spellbinders die.To the 8x8 card base I have added a white mat embossed with a  Die-sire folder and wrapped a blue ribbon around and added a bow.The topper is added with Pinflair glue to give some dimension and paper flowers and blue pearls  complete the picture.

Hunkydory Delight

Good evening everyone.Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather we are having.It is about time don't you agree?Well today's  card is made from Hunkdory goodies and although it has turned out okay it isn't what I had planned but my printer isn't playing so I had to use things which didn't need it to join in.My neighbour asked me to make it  and it is for a birthday tomorrow so couldn't wait.I have mounted the large topper on a Spellbinders mat and the small one on a Nelly Snellen one.A gingham ribbon and bow,a few paper flowers and a few pink pearls to finish off.
