Lauren’s Very Special Card


Here is a very special card for a very special little girl her name is Lauren and she is my granddaughter. Have not been home yet to see my grandchildren since the beginning of March and miss them all so much.

Not sure if this has been done before …. probably has but I haven’t seen it yet …. I made the diamond pop up card for her but it looked too small so decided to put in onto an easel card …. turned out really good. If it’s out there let me know would love to see what other bloggers have created.

Made another flower with lace but to make it zing I added a paper flower, rose and a butterfly. Added lots of sparkle to her name and number also onto the stamped images. Coloured little Mimosa and Mimo Roses with pro-markers. Cut out name and number and then 3D them with foam pads.

Creatible Belli challenge wanted birthday with old and forgotton …. the old …. I used my Cricut Expression, which has been stuck in the cupboard for a long time …. Andrew bought it for Christmas for me 3 years ago, complete surprise, and I have hardly used it. Wanted to add Lauren’s name to the card so dragged it out of the cupboard …. dusted it off and set it to work. I am really going to try and get on with it. Entering for these challenges:


Entered for:
The Shabby Tea Room – Get Your Bling On …. Not usually a bling person but she cried out for her dress to be sparkly and so he didn’t feel left out I sparkled the flowers …. just what Lauren loves …. all glittery.
