DCM Gimme Some Lovin' Challenge

I made this card not only for the challenge, but because it is also our 16th Anniversary on Sunday!! So I thought what a great opportunity to combine the two.

I make this A5 card using the Joanna Sheen Hollywood CD, and the picture is on a background of cuttlebug heart embossed on silver mirri card! A little piece of mirri card corner stamped on two sides with a heart and a piece of card inserted with 'Happy Anniversary' on it!!

Farewell card ...

... for a friend who is leaving the area. She likes clothes ... don't we all!!

This is made using the Joanna Sheen Victorian Companion 3CD Set, including the matching backing paper. The fan and the gloves were done on a
Wizard and embossed too. I have also sacrificed a tassel!!

Tartan Diamond Anniversary Card (DCM Emboss Challenge - 2nd attempt) ....

... was requested .... where to start?

A6 white tapestry card with diamond embossed on the front using
the Glitter Girls Romance board and layering up with a second layer which was embellished with 4 diamonds and the background was some of the Royal Stewart Tartan as requested. A white rose bunch with organza ribbon bow. Paisley tartan embellishments made using Cuttlebug dies. (Loved these.)

The insert is a Cuttlebug (surprise, surprise) champagne glasses embossed on vellum and stuck on to some tartan. Embellished with peel-offs. The back was just finished off with a piece of diamond tartan with a handmade peel-off.

The card is A6, embossed with cuttlebug and decorated with Bosskut flowers, leaves and swirls. It is finished off with gems in the middle of the flowers and a wood effect slider and ribbon with thanks in beads on it.

A congratulations card ...

... for a friend.

I used the 'framey' board from the Glitter Girls for the basic shape down the centre. Flowersoft was used to cover the body of the sheep (which was a cut down Quickutz die flower). The grass and sun are also Quickutz dies.

Quick Get Well Soon Card ...

... for a friends son who has fractured his ankle playing football ... he is in his 40s!!

No ink in printer, so had to do something different. The jigsaw bits seemed appropriate somehow, and were cut from a background sheet done with a Cuttlebug spots and dots folder.
