Garden Mandie Lil Dollies

Good Afternoon my Crafty Friends and Followers

First of all I want to thank Lindsay for awarding me the Green Blend Award and to Marleen for the Versatile Blog award.  Thanks a lot girls you are the best :)

Well 5 lots of DT work finished and 2 more left to do before Friday Morning.  A little late blogging again but I had quite a bit of admin to do so here I am gone 4 o'clock posting my card. The sun is shining and lovely and warm here while I am typing up this post.  Finger's crossed that the weather is going to get better as the weeks go on. 

I do love my digi's from Scrapbook Stamp Society and of course for my  card I have used Sherri Baldy's Garden Mandie Lil Dollies which you can purchase here.

Recipe and Method

1.  Card base is A5 and from Kanban Crafts.  I have scored the front of the card to make an easel card.
2.  The pale gree card is also from Kanban Crafts which I have cut out using Spellbinder Die Label 23 I layered the first matt onto the base adding white organza ribbon and attached a Spellbinder die fancy tag two.  I inked the edges using Dew Drops VersaMagic Aloe Vera and then attached Happy Birthday.
3.  The easel part of the card I have layed the green mat down ensuring not to add adhesive to the top part.  I have added a swirl with leaves which has been inked using Dew Drops Versamagic Olive.  I attached a couple of pearl gems to the swirls.  I have also added a leaf and a flower which I have added a dragonfly brad to the centre and left the flower white.
4.  I printed of Mandie onto Neenah card and then cut out using Spellbinder die Rectangle.  I coloured her in using watercolour pencils.  I then inked the edges using Dew Drops VersaMagic Aloe Vera and then attached to the matt.  To finish off I added 4 pearl gems to the corners.

Thank you for stopping by Today
