When we were out yesterday, I went into an arts and crafts shop and purchased some gold and silver glitter doilies I’d seen the week before. I’ve been playing with them today and made three on this theme but with different coloured butterflies. Most of my trimmings are silver, so I’ll need to get something gold to use with the others, but the idea is simple and easy.
A few days ago though I woke up with thoughts for a card but couldn’t get it straight in my head.
When I first started which I guess is about 10 years ago now (gulp!) it worked quite well but I haven’t done one like this for a while.
With being able to buy cards that already have holes cut out and kits that just need to be put together, in a way I haven’t been that creative, so it was nice to take an idea and work on it from scratch.
To be honest, it took me several minutes to work out how to make my initial cut as my mind went completely blank!
The whole thing actually took over an hour to put together, then when it was nearly finished I wanted to add some finishing touches and realised I should have done them first! Never mind, I had another idea and I’m pleased with it as it’s for a particular person.
This shows it off better
