Papertake Weekly Challenge

This weeks challenge is to make a card using the sketch below, which is another one of Katharina's. Fae and Scott are off to a wedding on Saturday and they asked me to make a card for the occasion, so I thought it'd use Katharina's fab sketch to do that. Here's is my interpretation... CS ~ stash, pp ~ dont remember where I downloaded it from sorry! Image was part of a RAK, blooms and brads ~ stash and sentiment is a stamp that I've had forever and have no idea where it came from! I coloured the image using watercolour pencils and H2O's and added some glamour dust to the centre of the flower.

I was also asked to make a card for a naming ceremony and this is what I did today too....
I used Raspberry Road Designs ~ My Baby Love, Girl printed directly on to CS from Crafts Central, its the linen look card. I embellished with gems, hearts and flowers and added ribbon so that it could be tied up like this ....

I made the flowers using 2 flower punches and then added punched leaves. Then, to finish it all off I made a little box to put it in...
I never know how much to charge for the cards I make and I'm definately thinking I've underpriced myself on this one ~ £4!

Just wanted to leave you with one last photo that I took today of Rylee...
He's going to be really pleased we're his grandparents when he's a teenager, don't ya think lol!

  3. You've been busy today. Great cards, I especially liked the naming ceremony one, what did you use to cut the letters? Defo underpricing your cards, but a problem most crafters have. I hate pricing cards, especially when it's friend/family. Poor Rylee.... just hope he doesn't get his own back on you when he is old enough!
