I am frequently getting commissions nowadays to make cards for people at work and I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't open a Folksy shop. But I don't want to get too big for my boots... Generally I get asked to make very bespoke cards but recently I was asked to make 2 'boy' christening cards, this is the first one and the second will be posted tomorrow...
The stamps are Kim Hughes from the now closed Cornish Heritage Farms (sob!) and I think that the paper was from my local craft shop :)
Did you know that over at the Ribbon Girl they have their first challenge?
It's a colour challenge; the colours being being orange, black and white. Great colours for this time of the year now that the seasons (and the leaves) are turning.
I made this card for my brother in law who's birthday is tomorrow (so I'd better get it in the post pretty swiftish).
The gems are Prima, the font is by Kim Hughes, the orage paper is Fancy Pants and I think the black and white paper is Tinkering Ink (but I'm not sure as it's been in my scraps bag for ages). The ribbon was not from the Ribbon Girl (my package from there is arriving later in the week...) but cut from clothes I was throwing out - we like recycling in our house ;)
Describes this post, the card I made for this week's Twisted sketch and the detail within :) This week's sketch was to incorporate 'tiny' any how, any way so I went for a tiny spot patterned paper by K & Co. The embellished chipboard was painted and glitzed many moons ago and I have no idea how I did it! The stamp is Hero Arts - such a beautifully defined image from these stamps (which are the clings range). It took no time at all to put together, a bit like this post ;) Laters xx
