Happy Birthday Dad

Hi Everyone, This is my second attempt to write my blog as I have just lost all that I had written on my laptop, which has just come back from being sorted for the second time. SCREAM ! So I am sorry but this will just be mainly a photo post as I have a few things to do today.

Firstly, Thanks to Rita for the inspiration on her blog here to make one of these cards. It was a delight to make. You will get instructions how to make one here .

Its my Dads Birthday this weekend and I decided to make a Garden card for him. I do hope you like it and if there is anything you want to know about techniques please drop me an email. I do love too share my tips. 


 Various close up views showing more 
of the detail.  

My flower started off as a white piece of cardstock

As you can see here the card folds up neatly then springs out to create this wonderful Garden !

Here I have shown the hinge die cut out then after applying my techniques to produce this wonderful finish.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
