Wow, what can I say about cardmaking? Hmmm I think it is actually more difficult to create a "card" than it is to create an entire layout or an entire album even lol.
I must say though, I was inspired by Vol 13 No.12 of the Aussie Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft mag, which I must say I never buy, but it arrived as a bonus mag with a recent Scrappy Mag (generous souls) so anyway... I was inspired by this gorgeous little card in there, actually several of them in there with ladybugs on them.....ah I just ADORE Ladybugs so I quickly sorted out an .svg pattern for the LADYBUG which I then cut with the cricut (of course) and made a quick lil wire antennae for her "must say she's looking pretty cute" lol and I also created and cut an .svg pattern for the DIECUT PAPER and a lovely new friend gave me a file for the lacy border in the background (thanks Christine) much appreciated **see I did use it** lol
Anyway, that's probably quite enough blithering on for one day, long story short, I created a card for my best friends' Mummy for her 80th Birthday tomorrow and I am stoked at how it turned out.
