Carden “Pob Lwc”
Good Luck Card
Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).
Before I get on with the make I have to show you today – You may notice that my blog looks slightly different, and it will probably change in look again before I finish sorting it – that is because an update to something in the system behibd the blog broke the theme that controled how the blog looked. Have a read about it – Here!
One of the carers who works for the company who organise our carers was leaving this month to start a nursing course at university. Her boss asked me to make a special “Pob Lwc” (Welsh for Good Luck) card for her to give the carer. Bit short notice, but I got something made.
What I Did
I Selected a gold, pre-foiled, sheet of Kanban cardstock from the kit that went with the oval dies and cut out several layers. I also cut out mats to go behind those layers, and a top layer mat, from lightweight white cardstock.
Some layers were stuck using flat glue and some using foam tape, to give dimension to the matted and layered panel. A greeting was stuck on the central panel.
I printed the decoupage sheet onto cardstock and then cut out the layers. I attached the bottom layers using foam tape and the smaller, top layers using glue gel. As the topper was a “get well soon” one and I wanted the card for another purpous, I cut a small piece of white cardstock and stuck it over the “get well soon” on the bottle and then put a few gems on it.
I used foam tape to attach the decoupage to the card front before putting an assortment of different sized faux gems in various places on the card.

The Finished Card
As you can see from this first photo, the foiled mirror cardstock really catches the light in some places. So I’ve also taken slightly angled view photos of the card so that you can see more.
This is a closer, angled, view of the decoupage to try and show the dimension.
I have several bits of different crafting on the go at the moment, so keep an eye out for them over the next few weeks.
