March is one of my busiest months for birthdays, and my Mum's birthday is also always very close to Mothering Sunday, so this week I needed LoTs of cards! I've had a very nasty cough and although I could do bits and pieces of arty stuff, they were little bits at a time ...
I added a stamped 'happy birthday' greeting and re-highlighted the gold accents from the journal page. On the back of each card I added a punched heart alongside my 'created by' stamp.
This next card is from a journal page that features a crocheted flower (apologies for the lighting in the next two photos!)...
... so I added another real crochet flower to the card, laying it over the scanned image, as well as stamping a birthday greeting and adding some punched hydrangeas and tiny pearls.
My third card was for my Mum, who loves this journal page so I scanned it ...
...and made a flowery card for my sister to give Mum as she's a gardening type! She writes beautifully too and I love reading her blog 'Living a life of Flavour.
I have loads to share as I have been absent from this blog for too long! More to come later in the week. Thanks so much for visiting :)
What a fab idea scanning your pages in for some batch card making, need to try that one. Love the last 2 as well with the strip of colour and I'm a pushover for a touch of free motion stitching. Hope you're feeling better.ReplyDelete
