The Gardener


I have the second of my vintage boy cards I made for Making Cards magazine. They are such cute images aren't they. Coloured with Copics of course. I really went to town with the distressing on this one adding some of my favourite crimped kraft card. I bought my crimper from The Works years ago, think it was £1 and it has been so useful. The papers are Papermania Mr Mister. I love using striped in this way. I found a cute little snail charm and tied it with string to keep the rustic look. the sentiment is also from LOTV.

I just adore this card, it looks really striking with the rustic look and this lovely image! Your crinkled paper matches fabulously with the distressed edges, the faux wooden sentiment and the natural string!

Love all the papers and the sweet image. Great card. I spent a lovely day in Norwich with a friend on Wednesday. Can't wait to go again and take Rick too. We are in Filby on Sunday for a Craft Fayre. Taking my doll house miniatures I've made for the first time. Then again on Tuesday to The Cliff Hotel. Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Carol S.xx
