Surprise!

Today I have one of those very difficult to do male cards to show you. I really liked the image and know a few men who would appreciate it.
I kept the layout quite simple and decorated the card with satin ribbons which have small buttons tied onto them with waxed cords - all from Meiflower, I used a lot of primary colours as I wanted to keep it quite bright.

Black and white Butterfly

I love the elegant look of this black and white card made using a kit from Paper Creator. I added glitter to all the lines of the criss cross patterned paper then black pearls to the black dots, and tiny AB gems in-between. A black organza bow finished it off.

I ((Heart)) U

Here's a Valentine card I made using ribbon, a charm and gems from Meiflower.
The ribbon is 4mm wide satin and is wrapped around the card several times before the ends were tied together into a bow.

Although the photo doesn't show it, the heart is shaped and has a triple layer of foam pads down the centre so it stands out quite a bit from the card.

Thanks for stopping by,

Cupcake charms

I love the enamelled cupcake charms from Meiflower, I often add them to birthday cards, or cards that contain a picture of a birthday cake or cupcake, so of course, when I made up this card kit from Paper Creator, I immediately reached for a cupcake charm, luckily I just had one left so will need to stock up at the Manchester Craft show today
 I also added a couple of swirls using some of Meiflowers stick on gems.


Have a lovely weekend,
hugs,

Cosmetic Easel card

I made this card for a friend who loves perfume and cosmetics, using a digital scrapbooking kit from Just so Scrappy called Oh So Pretty The whole design is layered up including the little eye shadow compact, which was fiddly, but worth it, as it looks quite effective in real life.
I added some stick on gems to the centres of the flower designs on the lipstick and nail polish, some pink sequin blossoms to the centres of the punched out flowers, a couple of heart shaped Dazzlers ( I don't know their proper name, but I call them dazzlers as they look like they are covered in pave diamonds and are really sparkly) to the top and bottom of the sentiment panel and of course a big pink girly bow with 25mm Satin Ribbon.
All embellishments are available from Meiflower.

Spotty Buttons

On todays card I have used little spotty buttons, available from Meiflower. There is a huge range of colours available in both spotty and plain and I nearly always add a few buttons to male themed cards, as I don't think most of them would appreciate bows and flowers. I also added one of my favourite Meiflower charms - the wish charm - which I think is absolutely perfect for most types of card.


The dragon topper is from a topper selection bundle available at Paper Creator and the papers are from Just so Scrappy.

There is also free shipping on all orders over £5 until Monday
