Bildmalarna DT card

>> Tuesday, 23 June 2009

This card was very nearly a disaster! I tried to cut all the way through my card to make a window for the sentiment and almost broke my Cuttlebug in the process! Note to self; don't try cutting through 3 layers of card all at once!! The nestie die did cut through the DP and mat card though so I stamped the sentiment on my base card and then created a frame for the window to hide the slightly torn DP!  The great sketch is from this weeks Inspirational Card Sketches blog.

ICS
I'm suffering with 'man flu' (ie. a cold!) at the moment so bending over my desk makes my sinuses throb! And I had to collect Thomas from nursery early today as they suspect he has chicken pox. Quite a few of the children at nursery have had it so I guess they're on the look out for it but I think his spots were heat rash as most of them had disappeared by bedtime.

Card Recipe:

Stamps:  Mimosas Summer Flower from Bildmalarna, sentiment was a freebie from Sugar Nellie

Paper: Double sided sheet from Ladybug & Friends

Embellishments: Ribbon from stash & punched flowers

Tools: Oval, circle and scalloped circle nesties, EK Success retro flower punches, Leone Em branch punch

Sharon this is such a darling pretty card and lol I can sooo relate to the almost broken cuttlebug, glad yours didn't break and you can't even tell on your card that there was almost a disaster! So glad you had fun using ICS #22!
