Cards for my Grandma


It's my Grandma's birthday today and these are her cards - the first one is from my mum and the second card is from us. It was lovely to do something other than Christmas cards for a change! We've driven over to see her today and on the way it started snowing again - there's quite a lot of it out there now!

1st card - 8 x 8 card blank. Digi stamp from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers, cut out with oval nesties. The papers are Papermania CCSR, with coredinations cardstock. Martha Stewart scallop dot punch used to make the centre panel, added a strip of stripy paper and then sheer ribbon over the top. Swirly corner made using a sizzix die, computer generated sentiment with a tiny rose added to finish.



2nd card - my first attempt at an easel card! I don't know why, but I expected this to be a lot more complicated than it actually was, I'll definitely make more of these. The image is a Penny Black stamp, coloured with promarkers. Papers are Doodlebug, with DCWV cardstock. Butterfly and heart embellishments are Papermania (I think). Computer generated sentiments.





I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:
