Flowery card for a lady


A female friend turned 50 earlier this year. I made her this flowery card.
The picture was found on the internet.



I made a pocket inside the card to put a gift certificate.
Lots of flowers also here.



My personal stamp with more flowers. :-)

I love the colours on this card. I bought one extra of the design paper just because of the colours. :-) That made it possible for me to make another card with the same papers. I will show you this card later on.

Have great week. Thanks for looking.

Birthdaycard for my brother-in-law


I bought this bird stamp and just wanted to use it as quick as possible.
Since I had to make a card for my brother-in-law I decided that it had to be a simple card.
The text is hand written, as I guess you can see...



This cupcake stamp was a gift in a magazine I bought. I simply love magazines, crafty magazines there is. And I simply love magazines offering free stamps...



Simple back. To make it a bit more exciting I put some flowers around my personal stamp.

Thanks for looking. Have a great day!

Another confirmationcard


A customer asked me to make a confirmationcard for a boy.
This boy likes to play guitar and football so I used my KH Design stamps with footballs and guitars on. Perferct for this kind of project. :-)
In this first picture I show you how I closed the card with a rough string.



Here's the card without the string.



Close-up of the corners of the front. I put some flowers with beads on to brighten up the look a bit.



Here is the card opened up a bit...



....and here's the card fully opened up. On the left side I have printed out the letters from my computer and then cut them out like this.
On the middle page I have put a pocket to put a gift certificate or some money.
On the right side I have printed the text the customer wanted me to use. The small branches are a stamp from Lissie Design.



Close-up of the guitar.



Close-up of the pocket.



This is the back of the card.

Holidays are over. I have been working for over a week now and I know that this week will include three late shifts at work. And the Saturday! Hmm. I am looking forward to Sunday! :-) That will be my only day to relax this week.

Well, thanks for looking.
Have a great day.

Invitations for a wedding party


I was asked to make some invitations for my niece's wedding party. She and her husband got married last autumn but they didn't invite anyone to a party or to celebrate the day together with them. After some months they decided to invite friends and family to a big party to celebrate the marriage. I made approx. 45 invitations. Since it wasn't going to be a typical wedding, only the party, I decided to make a fun invitation. My niece had decided to use the colours lilac, dark blue and silver in her decorations and flowers, so I wanted to use those colours on the invitations.

This Magnolia stamp I have had for a long time and I think it was perfect for this occation.



The insides. I love to decorate all four sides so I just had to put something on the left side as well. Since I was going to make approx. 45 invitations I didn't want to put a lot of work on a small detail. But I must say that it took me quite a while to stamp, paint and cut out this little heart banner for all the invitations.... :-)



Really simple back again. But even though it doesn't seem a lot of work, to make those fake stitches around the edges it takes a while. :-)


Here's the last batch of invitations. I also made a small batch which I sent to my niece much earlier than these last ones.

I am still on holidays in our new campervan. I love this kind of vacation. Perfect for our family.
My niece's wedding party is this Saturday, tomorrow! I am looking forward to it. I will show you the card I made for her and her husband as soon as possible. :-)

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
