Crafty Erin

Erin is one of my daughter's friends who loves to to do all kinds of craft, when my daughter Holly asked me to make a card for Erin she said anything orange and craft related. I thought for a while and then remembered the 'flippin women' decoupage sheets I had so decided to go with this, it was the orange that threw me a little as I don't use it very often. Anyway I started with orange as my base card and cut an aperture in the centre using one of my many dies, I then used the same die and cut an aperture from the centre of a piece of cream card cut slightly smaller than my base card. I stamped the words and button images randomly onto the card before placing acetate on the back of the back. I then used bakers twine to thread through the holes on the buttons. After cutting my front and back decoupage images out I put the front images into place and layered the cream card onto my base. I placed my matching insert on the inside of my card and added the back images of the decoupage. I finished with die cut name and numbers with added gems.

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog, all comments are much appreciated x
