Welcome Back

Today I’d like to share a card I made using digital crafting and mixing it with real life crafting, otherwise known as hybrid crafting. Making use of Serif Craft Artist and my favorite rubber stamp to create this;

The background was created using Serif craft artist software and digikits, next I added text using a font style called Papyrus which I adore. I printed this out and stamped on my favorite stamp HJ009 Singing crane.

The base card is Centura Purl cardstock.

On the inside of the card I made a panel again using Serif and the same font as on the front of the card. I bought a plaque with this poem on, a short while after my father passed away and it really summed up how I felt, that as long as I remembered my Dad and spoke of him then he wasn’t ever gone, he would live on in my heart and mind.

This particular card is a sympathy card but it would also work well as a card for support for someone going through stressful times, although I’d use a different insert if I used the design again in that way.

To keep the theme continuing though the project, I also stamped the crane on the envelope.

Haven’t made a card in AGES. A lot of that is down to the fact that now Paper Mill are only available mail order and postage charges are so high, getting more card-stock is so expensive. As is posting anything too dimensional.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Oriental Card

Welcome Back

It’s AGES since I’ve made a card. A friend of DHs is poorley in hospital at the moment and she is a fan of Chinese brush painting. I adore all things oriental so I created this card to cheer her up.

I have some notion that red cards bring good fortune? (or was it just a TV advert?) So hoping the red card will speed her recovery by cheering her up.

Turns out its my 5th blogging birthday with WordPress. (Good job they told me ;) ) Many thanks wordpress for being a fabulous host.

Sending virtual birthday cake to all my loyal readers and to those who just dropped by today.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

I would like to share a picture of the origami Peace Crane earings that I made my good friend Lynn for Christmas.

They are made from gold coloured velum, this turned out to be a bit heavy to fold with but I got there in the end. This was another project I found in the Paper Fold It book that I bought some weeks ago.

 

Best wishes and thanks for reading
