Quick Make Card No.2

Hello Blogland
For my second Quick Makes card I fully utilised the gorgeous design on the paper -
Matting it onto turquoise cardstock, adding Labels Twenty Two (cut down), ribbon, pearl swirl
sentiment and a tiny bird rub-on...finished!  Truly a quick make.
I have been asked if I would detail some instructions on how to make my recipe book/holder.

I'm going to do some step shots with a little tutorial and I will post those soon.
Hope you are all having an enjoyable day.
I'm back tomorrow and it is ...Mother's Day!  
I did mention to my boys that the best gift they could give me would be tidy rooms..
but I don't think that is going to happen! 
Take care,

Hi Christine. This is another lovely card. Like the way you have used a cut down portion of the label at the bottom and also like the swirl going over the ribbon. Fresh looking colours, gorgeous. Anne x

Hi Christine
you say quick card, I say lovely card.
As for the "Boy's untidy room's, make the most of them because believe me, those year's will go by so quickly & they will soon be grown up & leaving home. I'd love to go back to those year's, when our three were growing up & I'd nag them (yes we all do it), to clean up behind them.

Great card today and I can't wait to see the tutorial on how to make the recipe book! My mind is racing thinking of other uses for it!

Ita said...

WOW WOW Christine what a super card and so simple,I love that paper

Ann said...

They're both lovely. I do agree re "tidy rooms", it would be great.

Redanne said...

I think your photo does this card more justice than the mag. The card is lovely (even without butterflies - lol). I'm afraid that having brought up 3 boys - it is never going to happen! Sorry.

Sandra said...

Hi Christine,
Those Kaisercraft papers would make a lovely mothers day gift !! hint to any offspring they may be reading over my shoulder!!
Hope you have a lovely mothers day and I hope you have some very tidy bedrooms!
My children are taking advantage of the fact that I can't get upstairs....I dread to think what I would find!!!!!
Huge Crafty Hugs
