Daffodil Dreams

Truly Scrumptious and the Creative Card Crew are having open Design Team calls. Candidates are asked to submit 2 of their favourite projects. Please click on the links if you want more details.

I had just finished these cards for my Grab Bag Swap and wanted to share them. They are the cards I have been most happy with recently. Kristina and Michelle always do such a wonderful job that I really make an effort to come up with something unique for them.

This first card is a criss-cross card. The base is made from Certainly Celery with patterned paper, images and ribbon that I received from my swap. Sorry, I don't know who makes them. There is a great tutorial for making these cards on Splitcoaststampers that I used that you can find here. The image was coloured with a mix of Copics and SU markers. I love the little dragonfly on the tab. I found him lonely, in the back of one of my craft drawers and he just called to me.

My second card is a gate fold card using the same paper and image. One thing I just love about this challenge is how to use the same materials to make very different projects. I distressed the edges of my image panel with Certainly Celery to make it stand out more. The butterfly is the new Creative Memories butterfly punch. The bling and the flower also came from my bag of goodies for the swap. I used the same Nestie and butterfly punches on the inside to keep continuity. The sentiment is from SU. If you know the set, please let me know.
