A card dedicated to a special person in Singapore

Hello to all of you,

I haven't been able to post the cards I made in the last two weeks - partly because of my ( always returning) severe pains  and also because a friend of mine asked me to make three never ending cards that she wanted to have hidden envelopes , so I spent quite a lot of time making them . ( not easy when one can not sit or stand , all my cards are made laying down most of the time because of a failed back surgery )

I will share the never ending cards next time , but here are some others :This darling girl I made from a 3 D file

This next one I made from a digital stamp printed on a white sheet of paper , made a border with a Martha Steward punch and gave the whole  some pink colour ,and distressed the edges . In the upper right corner I stamped a flourish I coloured in .Added a hand cut siccors , some ribbon and button and some sewing thread on a label . A small piece of old handmade lace on the bottom with red small ribbon through it .

 These three cuties asked for a rocker card ! I added a very small tag with a small piece of ribbon and attached it with a safety pin . And I cut three little hearts ,  hand stitched them together and glued them on .

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           On  the bottom border I added small golden heart stickers , actuallythey are the left overs from the actual stickers I previously used .
This next card I dedicate to a special person in Singapore :   

 simple card : a digital stamp , drawn over with black gel pen and a tiny bit colouring with grey pencil around the edges,  matted and embellished with some flowers I ordered from the talented Viola Mahr .A small piece of burlap and a rhinestone 

 For my final card : I used some white acrylic paint to brush the edges of my backing paper .Matted my 3D file and added white pearls in the corners .

So  my next post will show the neverending cards ,

Until then , take care !

Hugs, Rosa
