Happy Birthday

Geplaatst in: cardmaking 0


This is my second card for the 2S4Y sketch challenge. I had some trouble to get started with this sketch, but once I was going, … . I made this card with the Material Girl Challenge from ‘A Passion for Papertrey’ in mind too. Here it is.

Dit is mijn tweede kaart voor de 2S4Y schets challenge. Ik had wat moeite om van start te gaan met deze schets, maar eenmaal begonnen … . Ik maakte deze kaart ook met de Material Girl challenge van ‘A Passion for Papertrey’ in gedachten.

This was a rather time consuming card, since there was a lot of stitching involved in it (done by hand this time). I accentuated the butterflies with some beads to give the card a bit of a sparkle.

Het was een tijdrovende kaart, aangezien er nogal wat naaiwerk mee gepaard ging (met de hand gedaan deze keer). Ik accentueerde de vlinders met pareltjes om de kaart wat glitter te geven.

I immediately fell in love with that patterned paper, front and back. The butterfly pattern urged me to make a long narrow card. It still fits in a standard size envelope though.

Ik werd onmiddellijk verliefd op dit scrappapier, zowel voor- als achterzijde. Het patroon met de vlinders dwong me als het ware een lange smalle kaart te maken. Ze past wel nog in een standaard envelop.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the weekend! Bedankt om eventjes langs te komen! Geniet van het weekend!

    I love this card, it is SO my type of colors, so soft and romantic! I also like the one with that big vellum flower and the bling too. Nice work.

    So pretty Els! Did you say HANDSTITCHED?? The beading adds interest too. Regarding the Inkurable Challenge Els, I’d love to consider a swap with you on the 2 x 4 if you’re interested.
