Afternoon crafting friends . Two cards to show you today , very similar , one for a boy , one for a girl . I've used the pram in the new tattered lace Christening collection , so pretty ,I cut 3 diffent colours for each then snipped and layered accordingly . Just added a few pearls and gems to finish .
The banner is by La la land crafts and the word die has slipped my mind , sorry .

Take care and happy crafting . Jane x

I've really enjoyed making this card , and I think it's a bit special , and the person I have in mind to send to is rather special too.
The background paer is a 12x12 glitter velum by docraft called Spring Floral . I ordered about 20 sheets a good while ago , and have used it many times for wedding cards.
I've used mainly Marianne design products , image Swans 2 , Tiny's Swans die , Petra's bridge , Bullrushes (or cattails as the Dutch call them ), Petra's waterlilly.
The other dies are tattered lace mini dies . The sentiment is craftwork cards.
I was given the runaround with the signets , they kept disappearing in my mess craft room. Now one is getting a ride on Mum's back and the other is hiding behind the waterlilly.
Allsorts : fabulous florals
Marianne design diva's : anything goes using at least 3 MD products

What lovely weather we are having here in NW England , too hot to craft really , the afternoon sun turns my craft room into an oven .
After visiting Pauline's blog , I had to have the new Nitwit digi papers called Ooh La La, they have poodles so it was a must have . This card features the beautiful papers. The outer die is Tonic Venetian lace , it is a large die collection containing 11 dies , this is the biggest 7.5" square , I do like to make big cards lately . The butterflies use to dies , the inner 2 are a free gift with a carft mag , the outer one was a bargin buy for a £1 at a craft fair , it's by Do craft. The pearl trim used for the butterfly body is from crabapple crafts .
