Gran's Birthday Card

Hi  Everyone,this is a card i have made for my gran ,i used these gorgeous papers & flower clusters from the Grin n Bear it kit from Nitwitcollections.I went into the  Docraft digital designer and chose A4 landscape card to create all of this .
I chose my background paper resized it to the size needed then i used one of the new die matts from the new updates they recently added  and punched it onto the polka dot paper ,i added my own text into this shape & matched the colour of font to match the paper colour then i added the flower clusters to the two corners ,i copied another two of these clusters and added that to my a4 card  so i could use them as decoupage on the front of the card also a ribbon was added .
I managed to add all of this onto the one A4 sheet of card so i then printed it out ,cut out all the separate pieces then started to layer them onto my scallop card blank  with double sided foam pads .
I used my promarkers and went over the flowers a little ,then added glitter and some flower gems i came across plus a butterfly.
I  did similar with the inside of the card but left out the decoupage flowers i just added everything flat to the inside. I went over the text & flowers with a sakura pen to add a little shimmer and went around the edge of my scallop card with a promarker.I think it looks pretty good !

Two Male Cards

 Hi i couldn't sleep so i decided to make a male card but i liked these backing papers so much i decided to make two.The backing papers are freebies from Shabby Princess called Moody Blues Papers.The sentiment Happy Birthday is from a frame set at clipart fairy.
I started by printing out the first backing paper ,cut it to size to fit on my card blank then i used digital designer for the second paper resized it ,added the happy birthday sentiment frame then printed it out ,cut it to size then added it to the card,i printed out the video boy digi from mo's digital pencil,cut it out ,coloured with promarkers and used double sided  tape and added it to my card ,finished by adding silver peel offs around the happy birthday sentiment paper.
The second card i just did the same as before with the backing papers & the sentiment frame but this time i used  my  me to you cd rom in digital designer,chose my image i added my own text to the star ,printed it out ,cut it out ,stuck it down with double sided  tape and then finished again by adding the silver peel offs around the frame & the star and i added a star to each corner,hope you like them .
Its amazing what you can get done when you cannot sleep!
You know i just noticed my mistake the happy birthday frame if i had turned it around from the bottom round to the top it would of said in full happy birthday ,what a numpty i am eh!well its too late now !At least i will know what to do next time .

Forgot to show you the xmas card i made for the people i work for

Hi Everyone i forgot to show you the christmas card i made for the people i work for ,i actually based this card around the wrapping paper i got for their xmas pressie it was a beautiful blue with pretty reindeer on it so i made a similar card.
I printed onto a4 card the snowflake papers from pink petticoats which you get a load of colours to choose  from in your download ,i folded the card  and added holographic ribbon as a frame then printed out onto white card the reindeer embellishments & snowflakes from the christmas past cd rom,clicked on the colour i chose them in  then added my own greeting  all done in the docraft digital designer.I went around the text & snowflakes with a sakura pen , then i cut it out and stuck it down so it fitted in the holographic ribbon ,i think it looks great !

Xmas cards made for two of my daughters

 Hi Everyone sorry i have not been on my blog for a while i just was so stressed out with making all the xmas card orders for other people and then rushing at the last minute to make my own  i just lost my mojo  and have not made any  others yet.Anyway i thought i would show you two cards i made for two of my daughters.The images are both 3d digi downloads from cuddly buddly ,One of my daughters is dog mad so i thought this was perfect.I just added the cut out 3d dog image  to a bauble from the christmas past cd rom set and added peel off to the top of the bauble,added glitter to finish .
Same with this fairy 3d image which i think looks a bit like my daughter , i cut it out and added it to papers i printed out from the me to you cd rom but as you can see there is lines going across the paper i was really disappointed with it as i just recently bought a new printer an epson stylus sx515w wasnt cheap but i have cleaned the heads loads of times and still cannot get rid of these lines ,has anyone any ideas what i can do ?Anyway i added silver peel off around the image also added a line of silver peel off  to the top of the circle to make it look like a bauble ,added a silver bow and added pink gems ,with glitter to finish.
