Still soggy here in (not so sunny ) Spalding. I'm about 300yds away from one of the huge drainage channels built after the 1952 floods and so far it's doing its job. It's as big as a river, so I've got my fingers and toes crossed, if it bursts its banks we're doomed. A few years ago we had a similar situation and the sluice gates were opened to lower the flood channels. Spalding was saved, but others weren't so lucky, a lot of villages in the Boston area were flooded. Still, we're still luckier than lots, some are already flooded. Think I should have bought a boat instead of a camper.
Anyway, enough doom and gloom, on with today's card. Yes, you guessed, number three thank you card. It's safe to post now because it's arrived at it's destination. The colours on this one are more vibrant than the other two. I love purple and lilac, so striking.
The card shape and all the mats have been made using the spellbinder grand labels eleven dies. That's the big plus about the grand dies, you can use them to make lovely shaped cards. The base is cut from white linen 240gsm card and the backing paper is papermania, from the rich purple designer paper pack. The dies easily cut through both layers of the 240gsm card , you just have to pass it through a couple of times. I tried thicker card and it wasn't as successful.
My image is a digi from the clipartfairy butterfly fairies range. Is it my imagination or are fairies very in vogue at the moment? She's been coloured using promarkers and her wings have been glittered to add some sparkle. Some faux stitching has been added for detail, before being matted onto purple core-dinations card. A daisy topper flower, floral flourishes and a Hunkidory sentiment complete the card.
