Welcome! ~ Velkommen!
Here, in my little corner of bloglandia, is my blog about my crafts. Until recentley I've blogged about my card making. Now, in 2011, I'll try to do different things also, such as sewing (patchwork), knitting, crochet, baking, along with some card making...

Try it out Tuesday #17 Mother's Day

Tuesday and a new DT challenge at SCACD, a gift set for Mother's Day.
I went out of my comfort zone on this one, usually I stick to the 6"x6" size, but I've been meaning to try to make an envelope card for some time now. I found this great tutorial at Bodil's blog, I just had to give it a try.
Along with the card I got a jar from IKEA, decorated it and filled it with jelly beans. Don't know if it would suit a mom, probably the kids bringing the jar would get to eat most of the beans...
I used the cute Polka Dot Butterfly by Lockhart Stamp Company from Susana's, colored with Pro Markers. Used Scrapper's Floss for antennas, and Glitter Dots in the center of the flowers.
Printed the sentiment from my computer, cut it out with Nestabilities dies.

On the company blog Follow Your Heart you can see all the wonderful cards and creations by the rest of the DT ladies!

I just put a small note inside to show how it would look like:

Dette var skikkelig flott og en perfet match. Så moro å se fargene du har brukt. Av og til er det bare helt greit og forlate sin komfort sone, spesielt når resultatet blir så utrolig bra.
