Picture Cards

How's 2013 progressing for you all? Broken those resolutions yet? I haven't even STARTED mine!!!! I'll start tomorrow... Famous last words eh?! Time has a habit of running away with you, and tomorrow seems to be over before you got a chance to start those blasted resolutions!! Oh well, there IS always tomorrow ;-)

Anyway, another year, another heap of cards waiting to be made :-) I thought I would share a couple of cards I made for one of my daughters. I love using pictures on cards, it really personalises it for the recipient and always delights.

In this first card I framed a picture of my daughter with a Prima Crystal Mirror (Vintage Shapes 540715)- they do like their reflection at this age, lets face it LOL I carried on the "Frame theme" with Bo Bunny Lace Trim. The paper behind is Bo Bunny and Prima. The matting is made with Spellbinder Nestabilities dies, as are the die-cut corners.  The big chipboard rose is K&Co, and the roses all Prima.

In the next card I made the picture black and white, then coloured in the rose petals on the picture. I love the black and white with the deep red. The paper is Bo Bunny Enchanted. Fabric flowers are Prima Champagne Roses. Sentiment is a Basic Grey rub-on matted on white and black cardstock. I distressed the edges of the pictures with a Basic Grey Precision File.

Prima Butterfly inside the card.

A great idea for teenage cards I think, and you can extend the idea to boys. We will be having a challenge on the main Charmed blog tomorrow for teenage cards, I hope you will join in (there's a prize for the best one). See you there :)
