Crafts Beautiful March 2014 - Part 2

Good Friday morning peepsicles!
Hope you are all well and starting to feel the joys of Spring.
I'd like to share with you today, if I may, another project I did for the current issue of Crafts Beautiful (March 2014).
With out further ado do....

They asked me to create a couple of birthday cards suitable for children; one with a shaker element. I found this great stamp and die set by Sizzix which was perfect; especially teamed up with bright, zingy colours. I decided to make the jelly beans for the shaker part, I die cut them and added a highlight rather than stamp and then die cut. I think they look rather mouth watering.

The good thing is, these cards would be perfect to send anyone with a sweet tooth, young or old!

Why not pop over to the Crafts Beautiful website? It's packed with ideas, projects, inspiration, free downloads, hints and tips. There is also a lovely forum you can join. You will need to register if you want to download and print any templates/papers. It is free and is simple to do.

So, my lovelies! I'm going to pop off for now. Will be back soon...I promise. Take care xxx
