A CAS card to share today.  

I die cut a rectangle in a piece of  white card to make and aperture using a Sue Wilson 'Double Pierced Rectangle' die.  A snippet of white card was coloured by blending blue and green Distress Oxides.  I laid a stencil over the top, spritzed with water and blotted with a piece of kitchen roll.  When it was dry, I attached it to the card blank.  The flower is a Poppystamps 'Kirby Blooms' die cut.  The sentiment is a stamp from Happy Little Stampers 'Dandelion Wishes' set, stamped with Versafine Clair 'Warm Breeze'.  The top card with the aperture was attached with foam tape to add some dimension.

New Home by the Sea

A friend recently moved across to the other side of the country and will be living by the sea, near her daughter.  I wanted to make the sea themed card and this is what I came up with.

The 'sand' is gold glitter card and I used mottled blue card for the sky.  I die cut three Joanna Sheen 'Beach Huts' and backed them with matt silver paper.  The clouds are Memory Box 'Puffy Clouds' and I used a Memory Box 'Oceana Border' die for the waves.  The sentiment was typed on the computer and layered on a gold glitter card mat.

Sunflower Interlocking Gatefold Card

A birthday card today for someone who loves Sunflowers.

I made this card with an interlocking circle across the middle of the card to keep the card closed.  The Cheery Lynn 'Sunflower' was layered on Memory Box 'Stitched Circle Layers' die cuts.  The patterned paper is from an old Papermania paper pad, the sentiment from Lisa Horton's box kit and I added three tiny punched flowers to the front.

For the interlocking part, I folded an extra die cut circle in half and attached it the back of the decorated circle.  When the card is closed the right hand side of the card slips in the folded circle.  I hope that makes sense!  I put an extra little punched sunflower inside for added interest.

The July Rudolph Days Challenge began yesterday and runs until the end of the month.  It's been a few weeks since I last made a Christmas card, so a perfect opportunity to get back on track making them.

I used preloved Creative Expressions 'Dasher Deer' stamps, which I inked up for the first time. The image is coloured with Promarkers.  I die cut the image/sentiment and kraft card with Lisa Horton's Scallop Layered Rectangles and corner rounded the red mat.   A few tiny red pearls finished of my card.
