I know from my friend Moira that these little cuties always go down well - so I turned to some GorJuss decoupage when making a card for a friend whose birthday almost snuck up on me. Need to post it tomorrow and keep my fingers crossed it arrives on Tuesday!
The flower is cut from left over bits of the same card - waste not, want not - using Tim Holtz's tattered Floral dies then a little Prima brad added. And Tim Holtz dies do work beautifully in my little pink Cuttlebug despite some sellers saying they are only for a couple of other die cutting machines. You just use less/thinner CB plates.......simples! The cream slotted lace came from e-bay, pink ribbon from my stash and the little 'Made With Love' heart is from my stash, tied with pink and white bakers twine.
The sentiment is a new venture too, it's a Whimsy ticket stamp and I also got the die to cut it out - if you buy one and wonder how on earth to use the little piece of plastic that comes with the die then go here for a tutorial, I had to!! My only extra tip would be to also hold the die in place with easy removeable tape when you actually do the die cutting. Dumbo here sent to the States for them and I now know they are available over here in the UK.......although at the time places seemed to be out of stock. Still, for once I didn't get stung for import duty :))
OMG! This is my 100th post too!
