Present Card

Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers I hope you have all enjoyed the weekend and  done some nice things
My card today was a commission and I was asked to make a present card using the Dutch Doobadoo stencil  it is for a 50th birthday. You may remember I made a similar card last year in pink.

The Box

Box and Card Recipe

Present stencil is from Dutch Doobadoo I bought from Noor Designs
Stamp is all Dressed Up Stamps For you and  painted with Derwent Inktense Pencils
Papers are Maja Designs double sided 12x12 Fika Lejas Cafe from Live and  Love Crafts they are gorgeous the photo doesn't do them justice.
Die is Marianne Circle Leaf and Flower 
Swirls die was free in a magazine
Lace trim I think was from Whitby Crafts
Pearl String The Hobby House
Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, Live and  Love Crafts and Boyes Stores
Resin Heart was from a stall at Ross Papercraft Show
White card is Tim Holtz

Sentiments are made on the computer

This design does take time to make but I do love the finished results just a bit different. I did look for the link on Noor Designs for the stencil to add it but sadly its no longer showing .

Well I'm going to have a coffee now then get ready to go to Whitby. The Magpie Cafe which sell GF fish and chips reopened on Saturday after its Winter break so going for my Fish and Chip fix. I might also just pop into The Craft Shop well you have to don't you We have to support our craft traders !!

Have a great week everyone Love and  hugs Carole x


  1. To use the word in the sentiment it is indeed very special Carole, so feminine with the soft almost vintage pinks and so much attention to all the pretty details.
