Mother's Day 2014 (Number 2)

Hey there!  Surprise!  Another blog entry for you to peruse and another card for you to enjoy!  I was watching Christina Griffiths (CardmakingMagic.com) on youtube last night and she made a card that inspired me and resulted in my latest creation.

I've finally got some kraft coloured cardstock in my stash (been wanting it for a while) and this card was made using the 12x12 sheets from CraftOnline.  It isn't very strong cardstock but when you reinforce it with a few layers, it's just right.  *smile*

Anyway, I really like how this card turned out, so much so that I wanted to finish it before I jumped online to chat with my other DUS friends.  (oh, DUS stands for Down Under Stampers, I don't think I've mentioned us all before.)

Well here it is, I think I will make a few more.  The diecut was only cut half way by placing the plates half way only on the die.  I chose not to emboss as Christina did on her video here, as I was going to cover it with a white die cut anyway, so I didn't see the point.  I also didn't put loads of embellishments on there, I think the simplicity on this card is rather elegant (even if I do say so myself!)

Enjoy! and thanks always for stopping by!
