A bit of an update on various cards i’ve made in the last couple months…. First up is the mothering sunday card i made for Mom, as i’m really proud of this one… subsequent photos are behind the cut.

Mothering sunday card i made for Mum this year...

This card is made with parchment, and the holes around the outside took some doing!! Still, i’m really pleased with how it came out – the flower petals are embossed and coloured in with glittery inks so the petals sparkle as well – which you can see better in photos behind the cut…

you can see the glitter in the inks, here, and the embossing i did...

At the same time i did a similar card for my maternal grandmother - as she loves roses, i chose to do a rose for her...

Again, here, you can see the glitter in the inks and the embossing work

I wanted to make a parchment card for my paternal grandmother too but i simply ran out of time - those cards take 2 to 3 days of work, just to do the lacework around the edge (i could probably do it in one, but i'd hurt my wrist and hand muscles in doing so - which is not a good idea - I'm already at risk of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) so i fell back on this instead, a simple decoupage card - she loves gardening, so i thought this image would make her smile.

And finally, for easter, i simply made a bunch of these cheeky lil bunny cards... šŸ™‚ these images were made via a series of stamps that I'd bought specially for the occasion.
