Lavender Lili

Finally... after all I have been through lately, I am getting my MOJO back!!! Here is another card I have made this week.

This one was made using one of my FREE Lili of the Valley images that came with one of my craft magazines for August. I decided to make a gatefold card as I recently purchased a second hand Crafter's Companion Enveloper and it has all the markings for Concertina Cards, Gatefold Cards etc so I thought I would give it a go and see if it really was as simple as it claimed...and it was.

So, I coloured in the image, using my Promarker Pens, to coordinate with my background paper and then mounted it onto black card. I then stuck down one side and mounted it to ONE of the 'openings'. I then added a Craftword Cards sentiment (so that the card will close and stay shut) and some flowers etc. I have also decorated the inside of the card with the same paper and a sentiment, but I forgot to photograph the inside before one of my friends bought it from me, so... apologies for that.

I then just added some adhesive pearls to finish it off. Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.

Wow Fae, I just love this card, those papers are so pretty and the image is just adorable. Fantastic colouring and embellishing too. Great name by the way LOL (my daughter shares the same name and spelling) Thanks for your lovely comment and I hope your year starts to get better. Hugs Jillix
