Tuesday 6 August 2013


Last night was craft night, and after our tea and home made giant jaffa orange cake (recipe here on my baking blog), we all made cards following the same sketch.  This card will soon be winging it's way to Jakarta to congratulate my cousin and his new fiancee, who have just got engaged.  It's safe to post it here, I really don't think he's a secret crafter!
 The cute as can be stamp is Buzz Craft, and has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, to match the pretty magazine freebie papers, the edges of which I inked with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
To embellish, I added a punched strip, made with an Xcut punch, a ribbon, a bow, a heart charm, a doily, some punched flowers and leaves, and some clear gems in the corners.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Get Inky - #10 - Ribbons
