Codi and Friend...

Hope everyone is having a great week...and even though, I might be still suffering with the effects of flu that hasn't stopped my creative juices flowing. Last week, I noticed a DT call over at Pollycraft and couldn't help but be a little bit interested when I saw the great images they have on offer. In fact, they were so wonderful, I decided to use both...

It's been a little bit difficult getting good photos of my cards today because it's dull and rainy here in London but I wanted to make sure that these images were bright and colourful, so...for these cards, once I'd printed off the lovely digital images, I coloured both of them in, using Promarker pens and used some beautiful K & Company backing papers.
For Codi...I used a white square card blank, matted and layered the papers onto them and cut a strip for the bottom, punching a decorative border with a Martha Stewart border punch. The main image was matted and layered, distressed around the edges with distress inks and then adhered to the card, I used a black pen around the edge to give the effect of faux stitching and as final touches, I added the big paper flower from DCWV, the lovely stitched ribbon and a greeting which I handstamped onto white card, die cut using the Cuttlebug.
For the lovely little chick with his huge cupcake, this card is made in the same way but I die cut the shape with a Spellbinders die and then handstamped the flowers, using Dawn Bibby's acrylic stamp set, onto white card, coloured them in using Promarkers and cut each of them out by hand. Once again, I matted and layered the K and Company papers onto a white card blank, and then adhered the main image in the centre, surrounded by my stamped flowers, with their tiny jeweled centres and a greetings plaque.

    The stitching effect on the Codi card is rather unique...I like that effect a lot! and I like the polka-dot / plaid backing papers on the little chick card! and wouldn't we all like a cupcake that BIG! :-o

    Lovely cards baby and GOOD LUCK! :D <333
