Hello blog friends....

I was given short notice when asked to make a card for a little boy's birthday, (I really don't mind when this happens, and this lady is a good customer of mine and has also become a good friend) 

I had made a start in sorting my stamp collection, to a more 'user friendly system', and came across this set (make unknown), shown on the card, the day before! 

I used a 7" square white card base and scored the front at 3.5" to fold back

The figures were stamped then the numbers in various colours, using Distress Oxide Inks

I then coloured the images using watercolour pencils (Derwent Pencils and Crafter's Companion) and once completed went over them with paper stumps to blend them

I used Tonic's square die set (used the smallest die in the set) to die cut 3 squares, then cut them in half, diagonally, to make a flag for the bunting

The same coloured distress inks were used to colour each flag and I stamped the letters using an onyx black ink pad. I added a thin line of glue to the top of the card and added blue and white jute so that the bunting looked as if it was attached to it.  Very small pieces of double sided mounting foam were added to the backs of the flags and adhered slightly below the jute.  The sentiment above the bunting fitted perfectly in the space above

I downloaded the verse, the cute bear was also included with it.  I printed it onto blue cardstock and die cut it using one of the oval dies from Creative Expressions

Now for the card winner:

  2. Lovely, colourful card, June - I am sure he will enjoy it !!

  3. Hi June,
    I too had a commission for a childrens card lately.
    I had plenty of notice, but she wanted swings slide and roundabouts on it.
    Finally made it at the begining of the week after racking my brains for a design.
    Then Daughter brings it back yesterday and says you put our on it and she is divorced so I had to do a quick rewrite of the inside and the outside.
    If only people would let you know this at the time as you presume there is a Great Grandad.

    Love this wonderful card and what a very super design.
    Love the bunting spelling out the name.
    Such a great verse inside too with the lovely teddy.

    Congrats to Lyn on her win.

    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

    1. Thank you Jenny

      Poor you with the 'out' business! I have a crib sheet with details on it, I think that comes from when I used to do a lot of cake orders. Let me know if you'd like a copy


  4. Lovelycard June and congratulations to Lyn.

  5. And yet another lovely card. I am unsure what white jute is?
    Other than the jute, its a great little card. Like i keep saying your ability to change a card from a nice card into a fabulous card by merely scoring the front and turning back overs.
    Im really pleased youre happy to share your designs you certainly give people inspiration xxx

  6. Think I need to do some children's cards!!! Bit out if my comfort zone!! Lovely card June !
