Another day and time for another card :)

For this card I used a photo I took out of the airplane window on my last trip back to the UK for the DP paper which I then embossed with and Embossilicious Embossing Folder.  The text on the front of the card was added to the DP paper before printing.  I used the same image and embossing folder for the inside of the card too.

I went to town with my Cherry Lynn Designs dies using three different ones.  I just love the dream-catcher and this is the first time I have used it.  I decided to use silver glitter paper for the dream-catcher and other silver items on the card to represent the fact that every cloud has a silver lining (so if you have rotten dreams just remember they can only get better <g>)

Other dies I used were Cherry Lynn Tropical Flourish and Mimi Butterflies - oh and how I love my mini butterflies, one of the best dies I have, just so versatile. When cutting all the dies I used waxed paper to help release them and have kept these wax bits to add to the card. I was trying to create a delicate floaty effect lol.

Feathers were added to the feather areas on the dream-catcher and pearls too.  Liquid Pearls were used in other areas.

  • White Linen and Blue Pearl card from Craft Creations
  • Dies - Cheery Lynn Designs:- Dream-catcher, Tropical Flourish and Mimi Butterflies. For the sentiment I used X-Cut Large Tags
  • Background paper by me from a photo I took
  • Embossilicious Embossing Folder
  • Pearls, Liquid Pearls, gems ribbon and lace ribbon from my stash
