Sunset Card

Yay, I managed a card in different colours after my blue period, lol.

You wouldn't believe how long ago I bought this card blank. It's a three fold oval aperture that is not in any standard size. It was in the days before paper-crafting had become popular and it was difficult to get any crafting products.

Anyway, the image is a piece cut out of a practise watercolour with the bare tree image stamped and clear embossed on to it.

The flowers are mulberry paper, the greenery is felt. The buds are made from cut and folded flowers. The flower centres are sugar coated brads. I don't stick the brads through the card, they just hold the flowers together and are then added with glue dots.

I'd love to know what you think about it.

What is your experience of the explosion in tools and materials available to paper crafters over the last 20 years?

Happy Crafting, Janice :) x


  1. Very pretty card, love the image and the addition of the flowers really lift it and make it spring like xx

  2. Gorgeous card,love the image and fab

  3. Very, very pretty. If I received it i would want to frame it, there's something eye catching about it.
    I used to be a craft retailer and even back then it was forever changing with tools, kits and styles. It can be a cruel world if you venture too much into communities, very competitive so now I steer clear of them and learn of new tools and goodies through facebook pages that I like and blogs I read. Life. is. easier. and. happier!! lol


  4. A gorgeous card, love the image and colours. The cascading flowers are gorgeous too

  5. Oh I adore that sunset. It is beautiful in a subtle way! The flowers set the card off perfectly. Gorgeous card :-)
