More Just Believe

It was mums birthday yesterday and her favourite flowers are daffodils. I've done her plenty of daff cards over the years this time I decided to use the colours found in daffs as the theme rather than the actual flower.

3 of the new In Colors fitted the bill perfectly, peach parfait, poppy parade and pear pizzazz and of course I couldnt not use daffodil delight. I teamed it with a sketch from Truly Scrumptious

In real life the daffodil delight is quite a soft colour for a yellow. I loathe yellow cardstock as a rule but this isnt too bad, will never be my favourite card colour but it doesnt offend me lol.

In colour markers used direct to the Just Believe flower. Peach parfait for the so swirly wheel. Boho Blossom punch teamed with Punch Potpourri and some old olive taffeta ribbon. Scallop trim corner punch used in the top right corner, bit of a liberty with the sketch I know but it looked better for me this way.

A couple more from Just Believe before I had to force myself to put it down and get cracking with Xmas cards.

After the card I made a couple of days ago I decided to use Lap of Luxury DSP again.

Very vanilla, & pretty in pink cardstock, concord crush and basic grey ink. Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon and the scallop trim border and corner punch with just a few gems to finish.

Now I'm hoping that the 2nd card is round the right way, it's saved properly on the pc but blogger seems to want to rotate it, odd. Edited to add, no it hasnt. Very very odd as I've tried with several different jpgs of the card. Even a new photo lol.

This is cased from a card by Lee Conroy, her's is one of the most perfect xmas cards I've seen for a long time. I havent changed much at all.

En Francais & tree trimmings stamped with versamark and embossed with SU gold ep. Whisper white, real red & gold mirri cardstock. Base card is one I cut & scored a long time ago, I rarely if ever make a6 cards any more but it was perfect for this one. Real red satin ribbon to finish. Wish you could see the ribbon in real life as it's so rich in colour & sheen it looks incredibly expensive. Perhaps some of the relations wont think handmade cards are the *cheap* option this year.. if only they knew lol ;o)
