Flowers for Papercraft Inspirations Magazine....


Here's a couple of floral cards I made for a commission for a  past issue of Papercraft Inspirations magazine. The theme was floral thank you cards, and each card has to look totally different. For this first one I used some cute fabric covered wooden shapes that I found in Hobbycraft.....


 and this next one was made with papers and stamps from Heartfelt Creations - the white seam binding ribbon from The Ribbon Girl was coloured with ProMarkers to match the card



I really must get around to updating my little gallery buttons at the top of the blog - and maybe add one for Scan N Cut cards as well. I am not very good at the admin type side of running a blog I must admit, I will put it on my ever growing TO DO list.........



When I was in Florida catching up with all my friends there, I saw my friend Carol's latest creations and I was blown away by how she has developed her style since I last saw her - she was a fledgling scrapbooker when I first met her, and decided she liked making cards much more than scrapbooking, it is so nice to see her develop as a crafter and I took a couple of photos of her lovely cards to show you 




Thanks for letting me share them Carol x

Loved both of your cards, especially the second one! Great work by Carol, and you must be very proud of her progress. I'm sure you've been an inspiration to her as much as to us. Thank you.

Fabulous cards Enfys. I have never seen fabric covered wooden shapes before, they look like a fun embellishment to work with. Love the elegant look of the 2nd card with the burgandy/cream colors and the lovely multi-layered flowers.

Your friend Carol does such beautiful work. I don't know how long she has been making cards, but she definitely has a very creative flair for making eye-appealing cards. I love them all.
