Mum's Birthday "Card"

Hello there,

It was my Mum's birthday on June 2nd and this is what I made for her from this old sweetie tin.










Are you still there?

It was also my Guest Designer piece for the June Crafty Calendar Challenge, and I was very chuffed to be invited to take part. Please have a look at the all fabulous creations by the CCC design team here. This month the theme is Bugs and Beasties.
The stamps around the outside of the tin are by Crafty Individuals. I'm not sure who the butterfly stamps on the 'dangler' are by, they were given to me by a friend but they stamped up very well on the vellum I used. All butterflies were given a liberal dose of stardust stickles. The other stamps which were heat embossed in gold are also C.I. All circles were cut out with nesties and a computer generated sentiment went into the bottom of the tin. A tissue paper flower and some ribbon on the lid completed this project.
Hope you like it and TFL,

Fiona x

  3. This is absolutely gorgeous Fiona. Love the colour (I used to be called the purple queen at stamp club cos I like the colour so much lol).
    A really clever idea which I'm sure your Mum must love to bits.

  12. Thanks for your recent comment on my blog Fiona. I just love playing with different textures on my cards and mulberry paper is one of them. I'm afraid I'm not a big 'follower of fashion' If I like it, then I like it. Funky foam is another material I love to use (that I don't see many other cardmakers working with), especially when die cutting letters. I think it's great to use up some of that crafty stash we all have piled away somewhere.
