Cards with Websters Pages & do you live on the Gold Coast, Qld?

Hi all
Corrina here with you today

I was having a little play with my Websters 6 in x 6 in paper pad to make my son’s birthday card recently, and I thought why not whack up some quick cards at the same time? 
We ALL need those few extra just-in-case cards in our stash – yes? So here they are:

Firstly, my son’s birthday card:         

 It was such a deceptively easy card to do. You receive 2 pieces of each design in the paper pad. There was a really cute yacht paper in there and it was perfect for layering. I covered the entire front of a card with one piece so the yachts and the fireworks fitted on. 

From the 2nd sheet of the same design, I cut the sails out, lightly inked them and stuck the sails down onto the card using glue on one side and foam tape on the other to make it pop out. 
I added some blue velvet ric rac ‘water’, a strip of star pattern paper from the Websters pad, and a scrap piece of aqua from the ‘ghosts of projects past’ drawer. 

I used an AC Thickers Jewelry Box Alpha number 8, and finished off with kindyglitz highlights on the boats and fireworks.

Happy Birthday Card:

For this card I used 3 small pieces of co-ordinating papers from the Websters paper pad
I punched along the back edge of a card using a fancy edge punch, and then covered the front of the card using the 3 different pieces of paper. 

The flower was created using 4 mulberry flowers that I cut the petals into sections and layered them up to create a really large flower. 


I inked the edge of a my2angels Happy Birthday pin with red ink, stuck it on as a flower centre and finished off with a red organza bow and a touch of Kindyglitz and diamond dust on the flower petals.

Birthday Time Card: 

For this card I covered the front of a black card with a cute piece of
Websters paper that had some bird in a nest. I left a thin 2mm border all the way around. 

I added some scrapware clock hands, and added the words ‘birthday time’ in Carolee’s Creations Adorn It lettering

I then covered the join where the clock hands are with a piece of  lace tied into a bow, some leaves hand cut from Websters papers and some of our new yummy acrylic flowers

I added a little final touch with Kindyglitz on the acrylic flowers, and a dot on the flower centres in the birds nest design print of the paper.

Materials Used:
Papers & cardstock: A5 sized cardstock, Websters 6x6 inch paper pad

Enjoy !! C x
