Another birthday card for my aunt, this time for my Mum to give her. I brought the La Pashe decoupage and matching aperture card, but wasn't sure what to do with the large white space around the outside! I impressed myself with my stamping but unfortunately managed to wash a few of my letter stamps down the sink somehow...

At the moment I've been experimenting with different techniques and card shapes to make my cards more interesting. This is a birthday card for my boyfriend's sister who's bravely doing a parachute jump for charity on her birthday! I've used teddy decoupage and my funky new DCWV papers with a transparent sentiment.
My aunt brought me a card making book for my birthday, so I decided to experiment with one of the techniques in it, called iris folding, to make her a birthday card in her favourite pearly sea colours. It took me ages and was a little bit fiddly but so worth it for the final effect!

This is a floral card I made for my Granny's birthday in the same colours as her living room. I also made her a sunflower themed exploding box (embossed with my Cuttlebug of course!) but forgot to get a photo of it. She absolutely loved both and said she's going to treasure them forever bless...
