365 Cards - Day 55 - Card recipe

Day 55 on 365 cards and today we have a recipe to follow

Here's the recipe for this card:

5x5 card (solid colored card stock - may be smooth or textured)

4x4 patterned paper (you may alter the edges if you'd like)

1 shape (circle, square, star, heart, etc.) - must be solid color

3 jewels

alpha stickers

I also admit I did have a little help with the making of my card, meet my six and a half year old Granddaughter Lilly!

Lilly came to stop with me whilst her Mum and Dad went shopping just as I was starting to make this card so she agreed to help me make it, she pressed the buttons on the cricut and took the backs off all the 3D foam pads and even chose which jewels to put onto it, Thank you Lilly, I wouldn't have managed without you. xx

Here is Lilly hard at work in my craft room.

and here is what we have made

I used textured Black card for the 5" x 5"
I used some Gold and Cream Wedding PP which I edges using my Krylon pen
The heart was cut by Lilly on my Cricut put on with 3D foam pads and has 3 Ivory Pearls on it
The Alpha stickers are mounted onto 3D pads and spell the word 'Love'

Hope you like what we have made!
