For My Friend

Hello everyone, how are you all?

I'm here today with my DT card for Noor Design Uk, I was hoping to show you 2 male cards but due to family being poorly, first my granddaughter Payton came down with a viral infection last Fridy & then its got passed around, now my grandson has it, Natalie has it & hubster has it....only he's had sickness with it too. Even my poor dog was sick as well yesterday...think they are worried I will get bored lol.

Luckily I made this card about 2 weeks ago ready for the stamp & that got put on last week so I will show you that one instead....thank goodness for back ups lol.
I have used another of the fabulous Dreamerland Crafts stamps.........omg I'm addicted to these & they are so enjoyable to colour. I have stamped this gorgeous stamp called 'A Friendship Hug' onto Fabriano& coloured her with distress ink refills & added glitter to the flower in her hair.
I have coloured up a few of these....between these & my Maggies I feel like a happy 6 year old girl colouring away lol.

I have made an easel card, it seems soooo long since I've made one, I think its been a couple of months.
I used 1 sheet of Pion Design 'Theodore & Bella' called 'Waiting To Play' 6x6. The top left corner I saw the border & decided to cut that off & use that as the main part of the bottom layer & mounted it onto foam pads to make it 3D & help the top card stand up.
See photo below.........
I added pearl string. lace & a die-cut & 2 seam binding bows with a bit of bling & that was the bottom..... However I did not want to then cover up that pretty paper to then have to add somewhere to write a message..........
So I did this.......
As there was 1 square of 6x6 left I used that to decorate the inside & make a pocket to put tags in.
I added pearl string to compliment all the card.
I added tag with a LOTV Friend Recipe stamped onto it & another Joy Crafts tag which I left plain to write a message on.........& no pretty paper gets hidden ;-)

All of the flowers I have made myself using foamiran. I've used Ivory foamiran for the large flower & for the medium flower I have used white & the very small ones I've used Ivory again. I used Lime Green for the leaves & for the centres....the centres I also added red oil pastel on the ends to give it more colour & definition. I also added Viva Decor Ice Effect to give it a sparkly effect in the centre.
They look soooooo much better in real life.

Can you see the difference of the colours of the flowers......they have both have the same colour oil pastels added & because the large one is Ivory the colour is different..........guess who is going to by lots more Ivory Foamiran now lol. I love the softer feel to it.

I mahcine stitched all around the papers.
Added another gorgeous row of pearls along the top of the 2nd layer on the main part of the card,those pearls are my favourite. I did kind of go pearl mad with this card but they go so well with this pretty paper. Even the tones in the bling & the key go beautifully with the tones of the papers.

Pop yourself over to Noor Design UK & look at the fabulous new Dreamerland Crafts stamps that Tracy has & the foamiran & all the pretty papers &....welll I could go on & on &
Pop yourself over & have a fab time shopping.....easter bunny will want you to to treat yourself for easter ;-)
