I love experimenting with different cards that I see around 'blogland' and have been following Helen at Its All Fiddle Fart for a while now, as I am in ore with what she does with her finds from poundland and accessorize. I love the newspaper style cards that she does and the 9 square ones that she does with puff stickers.
So over the last few nights I have been having a play, and have made some gorgeous cards (well I think they are but my OH doesn't).
First of all I wanted to try out one of Helen's newspaper style card, as my neice is 18 in October, and I had the perfect embellishments to make one, so this is what I have made.
Now that I have sussed the layout and what I am doing using publisher, it will be really easy for me to do other cards like this and just change the wording and background colours.
Jennifer is not a girly pink kind of girl, so I did struggle a bit with the colours, but think that the end result looks great.
I can't for the life of me think where I bought the embellishments from, but if I ever remember I would definitely buy some more, as I think that most young women would love a card like this.
I'd like to enter this card into this fortnights MSE challenge set by Jellybaby21, which was to use either a cow or makeup. One of the 3d embellishments is a lipstick, another is a powder puff (I think) and the third is a bottle of perfume, so I hope these count for the challenge. I'd also like to enter it into this weeks.
The other style of card I love is Helen's '9 square' one using puff stickers. Having found a fab shop in Poole on holiday back i the summer, I came across a fair few 'puff stickers' that I couldn't resist buy since they were only 69p a pack. Here are 3 cards that I have put together using them and I have the same amount of stickers to do another 3 cards.
