Welcome to my blog, which one day, hopefully, should be filled with wonderful handmade card ideas! My goal is to create a blog with ideas for some easy, 'make-able' cards for you to take inspiration from! (It's what I've always needed to help me!)

Mother's Day 2012

I'm sorry for being such a stranger and not uploading in a whole month, but I've been busy with school work and exams :/ At least I've finally got round to uploading the Mother's Day card I made for my mum this year!
I used a 13.5cm X 13.5 cm plain cream card, with a baby pink paper stuck on top. I used the no. 37 lacé to make the tulips. I've never done a lacé before, and although the card was very simple, I spent so long just looking at it, scared to make a start that it took me ages!
Again, I am very sorry for disappearing for so long, and I promise I will be posting again very soon :)


  1. Oh this is absolutely beautiful! I love it and I'm sure your mother did too. I've never seen this before. Did you use a punch or die?

    1. Haha! Thank you :) I would have used a template and cut in the gaps with a craft knife, but it didn't arrive in time, so I drew cutting lines straight on to the paper and cut free hand with a craft knife :) x

  2. This is such pretty card Carys. It's great that you wanted to join our challenge. Whereas your card is beautifully Clean and Simple in design, I can't see that any masking has been done in its construction... and that is our challenge this week.
    Do take a look at some of the other submissions... we like participants to visit each other and leave comments anyway... you may see some examples that you would like to try for yourself!
    Thanks so much and do join us again next time.
    "Less is More"
    If you could remove the Word Verification from your blog that would help us enormously.
    There are instructions how to do this on the help page on our blog.

  3. WOW you did a fantastic job of cutting out those tulips!!!!


Please leave a comment, they are really appreciated :D CarysL
