I've not managed to find any crafty time yet this weekend but I'd just like to share a card I made last week to give to my brother and his girlfriend on their engagement.
I cut a square of white pearlescent cardstock slightly smaller than the base card and mounted this with low tack tape onto a piece of pale lavender cardstock, leaving a slim border. I then cut through the two layers with a heart die. Next I stamped the base card with the hearts, butterflies and flowers, in the area that would appear within the aperture. Next I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of vellum with VersaMark ink before embossing with silver embossing powder. This was then wrapped around the pearlescent panel before mounting the layers together.

I've not made anything new this weekend but I have been having a go at redesigning Neet & Crafty. I'd love to know what you think. I wanted to give it a more fresh, clean and modern feel so hopefully I've achieved that. You won't believe how many colour combos I've been faffing around with since last night! I don't have any software of any kind so this was done entirely using the free options on PicMonkey.
Thanks for dropping by, I'm now off to hang the washing out now that we have some lovely sunshine in the UK (I know how to party!!)
Bye for now x
