I’ve made a card and would like to enter it into a couple of challenges:
- Crafty Bloggers Network – Challenge #14 – Shabby Chic!
- Whoopsie Daisy Challenge – 3d challenge
- Glitter Geeks – Week 7 – Girls and Boys
Not sure I’ve got things quite right for each of these challenges, but it was fun having a go.
Here’s the card:

This is how I made it:
This card has a 3D element in that I’ve made a recessed centre to the card to put the coloured image into, as well as putting dimensional flowers around.
I used Super Smooth white card-stock and cut it in my Cameo cutting machine to make a card with a 4″ square recessed frame that’s 1cm deep using a template I’d built up myself. The card has a double score on the spine to give it a 1cm depth as well, and had a pattern printed down the spine, as well as some branches printed around the front before cutting. It had an irregular edge around it. I also printed out and cut some extra branches so that I could make them overlap the recess edges in places.
The little girl is Daisy, who’s printed out as a digi stamp from the Daisy and Friends CD-ROM and coloured it in using pink shades of pro-markers as well as skin-tones and hair colour.
I cut out a variety of flower shapes using the cutting files Nesting Flowers by Claire Norman and FRAMED FLOWERS by Clive Couter out of a pink shade of Core-dinations card-stock. These I scrunched and shaped. The same cardstock was also used as a double layer backdrop to the centre of the recess behind the coloured image.
I used a cluster of flowers and a hat pin at the bottom right corner, a greeting at the bottom left, a “shabby” ribbon across the bottom corner of the recessed frame, and put the brances in place and dotted around the scrunched flowers. All these were stuck in place using Pinflaire glue gel.
I dusted the edges of the card front and the recess with some toning pink chalk to finish the card off.
I hope you all like it.
