Granny’s Birthday card

Today is my Granny's 96th birthday, so I wanted to share the card I made for her with you this evening.

Niece’s birthday card

I love Gorguss by Santoro because it reminds me of my youngest niece, so this year I made her a card using the 'The Runaway' stamp set by docrafts. The main image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Classic Crest card. I coloured it with my Specturm Noir pens. The horse's body:… Continue reading Niece’s birthday card

10th Birthday Card

Today is my eldest Niece's birthday, but because I've been ill for the last few days I didn't get her card completed until today! I used a white 6x6 tent-fold card for the base. I cut the green square from some patterned paper I got as a freebee with Cardmaking and Papercraft and attached it… Continue reading 10th Birthday Card
