A Second Take!

Hi all - I hope you don't mind, but I am sharing another card today that is very similar to the one from Wednesday!  I had all those leaves cut and more flowers, and I needed a second Thank you card - so I made another one.

I would also like to thank you all for you most wonderful comments on my posts, I think I am going to have to invest in a video camera at some stage, so that I can make my tutorials a little better.  Maybe I could get Cameron Diaz to dub my voice LOL!


I used a slight different swirly frame from Birds Cards - fabulous free designs, she is awesome!  The butterflies are from there too and those little teeny hearts are from the the wings of the butterflies - waste not, want not :-)


I did change the position of the leaves and the flowers, but only a little.  I like how this one turned out.


The inside compliments the front and I used a stamp from a Recollections stamp set.


I am really proud of myself!  I actually gave these cards to some dear friends as Thank You's.  I don't know about you, but I have a very difficult time in parting with the cards I make and I told my friends that they were very privileged in receiving one from me :-)  By the way, they loved them :-)

I hope you have all had a fabulous week and that you have a relaxing/crafting weekend.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

  1. I love this, especially the layer you cut on your Cameo. And what a great idea to cut several leaves for later use. I wonder if I did that if I'd remember where I put them?

  6. I love this card and your leaves and flowers. I need to go back and read you post on Wednesday and see how you made them. Thinking this is something I'd like to have in my ever growing tool/supply stash. :)

  7. Why not make another, the second one is always easier! I love both. ha I re used my hearts little hearts as well, I'm sure they are too nice to waste. Like you I hate parting with my cards but when we part with them they do spread the pleasure, just hope they don't bin them oh no! Hugs Polly x

  17. I had a chuckle at you actually giving your cards away, as I am the same.
    Its an ongoing joke with my crafting friends that I hoard my finished cards, lol.
    I am going to try and work on this, this year ;)
    Your card is so lovely as is the last one.
    I really love those rolled flowers.

  21. Stunning Karon.......very pretty card! I too have trouble giving some cards away too..they are like mini works of art. I'm sure your friends really appreciated the time an effort that went into creating them.

  23. I don't think this look will ever get old! It's so pretty all of the lace and the way it jumps out at you. A very timeless look!

    I don't think I can translate things from Chinese to English spelling any better than you can! The writing is so different from our alphabet that your attempt is as good as mine! :)
