Getting Started

Well hopefully I have worked everything out and this is my first blog post. As I'm sure you will find out computers and I don't really get on too well but I've been playing about with the idea of a blog for a while. I won't promise to post every day but aim to try and put something up at least twice a week. (here's hoping!)

On to my card. This is what I have created for a friend and sister in Christ for her birthday. I have used the idea of a napkin fold card from the resources on Splitcoast Stampers.  The card base is Bassil and the patterned papers are Echo Park Country Drive. I used The new Woodware border system to punch around the base. The butterfly is a Marianne Creatables die and is cut from glitter card which is not showing up too well, probably due to my poor photographic skills!!! The ribbon came from my lovely friend Heather's shop -Doodlecraft!
This is the card opened out. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the corners of my insert and tiny gems in the centre of each flower. The verse came from
