Friendship Card

I have decided to do something very different this time, I have taken Christmas pattern number a284 and made it into a everyday day card which is available from Ann's Paper art, just shows you how versatile Ann's Patterns can be.
I replaced the stars with flowers that have been punched out with the Nellie Snellen Floral punch-FLP027
Once again I have used one of my favourite corner dies Nellie Snellen mfd027
The decoupage is Wekabo-456 which I made into a circle using my Nellie Snellen mfd055
The pattern is simple but beautiful and the beads really make it come alive.

Card for Frances

My exchange card for the month of May was for Frances.
I thought that it was a wonderful opportunity to use the new Stitching Stencils from Ann.
The stencil number is AND004 and comes with many elements, which I have used 3 of them on this card, the stitching and the 2 outer circles.
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 2822, 2912, 2830, 2650.
Delicate Asters HCPC3494 stamp by Heartfelt creations was stamped onto coloured cardstock and then die cut with the Spellbinders, Delicate Asters HCD726.  The combination makes such a beautiful flower when used together.
The inner circle die is byNellie Snellen mfd057  which I have gentle inked.
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities EL-005 has made a perfect background for the card.
Gems have been added around the stitching.

The stitching is a pattern from Stitching book #11 which is by Ann at Ann's Paper Art 
Threads are Mettler Polysheen 2732, 3130,2910
The lovely little heart charm is by Marianne design, which is under the Forever Friends little bow.
The cute decoupage by Reddy creative cards-82181 fits perfectly on the spellbinders S4-310.
I have attached a lovely lacy die by Nellie Snellen mdf023 along the back of the bigger die.
Distress ink has been gently sponged around the edge of the die cuts.
I have stitched around the edge of the Me to You patterned papers with my Tim Holtz idea-ology ruler.

Here you can see what the card looks like when it is open.
I really enjoyed making this card, it was lovely to make something different for a change.
