I wanted to share my favourites with you today. This butterfly Birthday card will be mailed off to my Mom. She will be 87 in February. She likes to receive handmade cards and always saves them to give back to me a few months later!
The little butterflies are all embossed with different patterns. Here is a wee close up.
This next card is going to be for my girlfriends...no, they don't have to share it as we made two of each of these....teehee
I have thrown in a close up of the Eifel Tower and the crown as they are really heavily glittered. I think the camera is making them appear more colourful than they actually are. In real life they just look sort of shimmery.
Of course we had to do a cream insert for the inside of the card. For some weird reason, my camera did not pick up the dark brown edge of the card around the cream insert. We stamped the envelopes to co- ordinate as well! Sorry...I forgot to take a photo of that...
I stayed the night at DD's to save her the drive to my house and back. It was so much fun to have a chat on the long drive out and back...sometimes it seems that there just isn't enough time to have a really good natter.
