New Home Card

Evening Bloggers,
I thought id share with you a card I made today for a friend who has just moved into her new home.
Ive only ever made 1 other 'new home' card before and I really struggled as wasnt sure what I wanted to do etc, so I went through my Siluette cutting library and found the following file. I thought it was fab so decided on this. I resized the image so it would fit on an 8x8 card front and went from there.
Here is the finished card

Siluette machine and cutting file
Red co'ordinations
candi from my stash
The papers used to peice the design are all just scraps from my box so not sure where they are from

Blink 182 Birthday card

Evening everyone,
I just thought I would share with you a card I made on saturday for my friends Birthday. 
She is a massive Blink 182 fan and even has an album cover tattoo on her leg so I naturally thought of this when deciding what card design to do for her. I also wanted to make it a bit girly but not use flowers so I decided on using pinwheels which I made myself.

Backing paper from Do Crafts Happy Days collection
image from google
Ultimate Pro and boxer board
Amy Tangerine 6x6 papers used for pinwheels
sentiment made using Do crafts digital designer
