Here is a close up of the card front: don't you love the relaxed style of Mr Duncan!
Then I did my usual cut up of magazines where I can get ideas from or case a good card. I cased this one from the UK magazine CARDS, but not sure whose it was.
Have only just realise that it has slipped off the hanger! Must fix that up! So, yellow SU card blank, and then some lilac card, and whisper white - put through the Cuttlebug with a Swiss Dots folder. This was sponged with SU Melon Mambo ink. The hanger is made from gold wire twisted into shape. The dress - scraps of DP, punched with SU's scalloped edge punch and then inked with Melon Mambo ink. The scraps were stuck to a spare bit of card and I handcut the whole skirt shape. The top is made of JAC paper and tinsel. It was fun to made but fiddly to get it organised. Again, I handcut the shape for the bodice. Some pink bling and a flower centre jewel from Prima finished it off. Looks sweet I thought.
Got three parcels from Japan from a friend there and had to made a thank you card for these. I thought I would try and be 'Japanesy' so took out the Waltzing Mouse Stamp set called Asian Garden, and some things from the extra set Asian gardens additions. Also used an old foam stamp for the sign 'wisdom' and small letters to make the sentiment 'Arigato' which means thank you in Japanese. I also used a pice of special Japanese paper as a background, and some pink handmade silk paper, as well as the SU Whisper White. I edged the white card with SU Melon Mambo and use that for the lantern, sign and sentiment. I used SU Soft Suede and Old Olive for the tree. The whole thing is on a piece of green sparkly Bazzil card.
Last one! This is another case from the same magazine already mentioned. I used a piece of light brown card that is a bit flimsy but it distressed so well, I thought I would go with it. It is not Bazzil - came in a pack, but don't know the name of the manufacturer.
