I designed this card with the aid of my Cricut Expression. I liked the Paper Lace 2 accent flower 1 for St. Patrick's Day and it went well with the other projects I planned. I cut out the flower design, ran it through the Xyron machine and glittered it well with green glitter, first making sure all the adhesive was sticking only to the design. I then added a bit of gold specialty paper to the center design only, having first made a cardboard template to help in cutting the design. I then adhered the design to the background accent flower cut from the same cartridge. I then adhered the entire unit to the front of a 5 1/2" green card. Now I have to go and search for a large square envelope! I made this card primarily for a small stamping party I went to with friends on Friday. Here is Silvia's card on her fantastic display case in her wonderful new studio:
The other beautiful card in the picture is one Silvia received from a friend. And here is Silvia with some more of her wonderful creations:
These are paper dolls she made from some Mirkwood templates: .http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/mirkwooddesigns/templates.htm She loves making paper dolls and her work is magnificent. And her studio is huge and very neat! Lots of room to work and play! We had a lot of fun. Each person brought a project for the others to complete. Some more pictures:
That's Margaret holding up Leanne's card and then Elaine and Leanne making the paper flowers for the card. We did the flowers without a die, without even a pattern! Who knew? I love my cards from Friday and I love my friends. Fabulous day!
