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!)

Mum's Birthday 2012

Grr.. I've done it again, and not posted in over a month! I apologise, and therefore I am going to post twice today!
My first card is one that I did a little while ago, for my Mum's Birthday.
I used a plain white 7 x 14 cm card for this one. I found two pieces of 6.5 x 6.5 acetate and sponged orange and pink watercolour paints in the flower shape on to them. I stuck the middle of the orange one straight on to the card, then stuck the pink one on top with a foam pad. I then found a 'pearl' cabochon and stuck that on top. I used watercolours to paint the stem and leaves.
It was quite a simple card really, but my mum loved it :) I found he acetate just lying around, and my G'ma had the Cabochon, so it was easy to find the 'ingredients' too :)


  1. OH MY Gosh Carys this is stunning! I've never seen acetate used this way, what a fabulous result. I'm sure you Mom loved it.

  2. I agree with Bernie - a really stunning card! Well done. Di xx
