My first card is made using elements from loung girl country chic 1, Baxter red roses and Bailey red roses. I printed my design onto linen card from the Paper Mill, printing one of the patterned papers onto the reverse, once folded this would make the inside. I scored and folded down the side of the letter L,( part of the V was folded to the back) then cut around the letters and made the back square. I printed out a second copy of Love and cut out the V and the heart, cut the centres from both hearts, added acetate, filled with confetti hearts and little no hole beads and layered them together using shaker tape. I printed Baxter and Bailey twice, I tucked Baxter behind the second V and secured him in place before layering the V's together using foam tape, I cut out his little arm and decoupaged it over the V. I layered Bailey up over the heart using foam pads, glamour dusted around the letters and added some card candy picked up at the Sincerely Yours craft show in Leigh last year.
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
Bee-crafty - Hearts
Crazy 4 Challenges - Hearts
AI factory - Valentines day/love
Cupcake Craft Challenges - I (heart) you
Pear Tree Designs - Valentines day
My second card uses Bohemian papers, Bohemian frames and Bohemian frames Lounge girl 1. I made the martini glass and wordart myself in photoshop.
I like the look of the front steps and have lots of ideas, so expect to see more cards using this element.
I managed to find a couple of challenges that aren't based around love and hearts to enter this card into:
Our creative corner - Cut it out
Catch the bug - different fold (front steps) hope they count!
If you have never visited the Clipart Fairy, head over to her store and have a look around, there is lots to see and the prices are great, there is also a good selection of freebies if you have a look back through her blog.
**edited to add** Woohoo, Wendy has just added a freebie cocktail glass on her blog, inspired by my design.
