Gorjuss Secret Draw Card

I saw this on a blog agees ago with a tutorial.. great you say? Well no, because it was all in inches and my scoring board doesn't like inches!. So I had to try and guess the measurements to make a similar card. I think I did quite well with my guesstimations.

The card is about 16cm square and has a card blank fastened on top. Next time I think I will make an easel card instead of a flat one so it looks more like a gift. Now I just have two to make for Mothers Day. I just need to think of something to put in them now!

Sketches by Carly

Here is my other card from my cardmaking day. This is an entry for the Sketches by Carly challenge.
This is the same paper I used for my last Gorjuss girl card. I wish I had saved the description as I love this paper. The stamp is a from Do Crafts and is a part of their Urban range. It is coloured with Copics. There are five gems lining the image which came from my stash. The corners were created by cutting up a doily and stuck on using Crafters Companion stick and spray.

Seems a little sketchy

Here is my entry to the "seems a little sketchy" challenge. I made this as part of my card making day. (yes a WHOLE day crafting!!) It was so much fun getting all my papers and flowers and sparkly things out from the craft room. I turned my music up and sat with a bunny spectator making cards. I wish I had time to do this every week!

The stamp used is a Gorjuss girl and if I remember rightly is called puddles of love. The papers are from my stash and I cut the description off (oops!).  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
