In The Purple Mood

Hello My Dear Craft Lovers,

I am in the purple mood today after looking at a beautiful purple patterned paper, I said to myself "I must find at least half an hour to craft".

Handmade Purple Birthday Card

Glad that I am not so busy this morning, so had some time to sit at my craft table and craft away. Ended up sitting at my craft table for more than an hour and made two simple square cards. The other card is not purple though. I decided to make another red, white and blue card which I will share with you in my next post.

In the Purple Mood

Besides pink, my second favourite colour is purple. Any shade of purple will definitely soothe my eyes. Even if I am having a crafter block day...Pink and Purple will definitely break that block away. What's your favourite colour that somehow never let you down?

For this birthday card, I used a white card as base and layered it with a purple cardstock. Then I layered that with the lovely pattern paper that I bought sometime back but almost forgot about it. Using the same purple cardstock, I cut a smaller square to higlight my white birthday die cut sentiment.

Then I stamped and hand cut some flowers in three different sizes. Two shades each, a dark purple and a lighter coloured shade. I then layered the flowers to get a lovely double petal kind of shade.

And finally added some embelishment for the center of the flower and at the corner of the card

Well there you go my handmade purple Birthday card with my chosen theme In The Purple Mood for anyone that loves purple.

When A Butterfly Sees Flowers

Good afternoon craft lovers. When A Butterfly Sees Flowers, that's the name of my latest handmade birthday card. Actually I made this card sometime last week, but only today I have some free time to post it here.

Happy Birthday Handmade Card

When Butterfly Sees Flowers

I used a light green card as base and layered it with a yellow card. But somehow in the photo, my yellow card look more like gold card. For the final layer, I decided to used two different shades of patterned paper. For the front, I used a black background with tiny gold stars pattern paper while for the back or should I say inside of the card, I used a green and white patterned paper.

Yellow and green handmade birthday card

I die cut two border patterned oval shapes (one yellow and one black) same sizes and glued it to the front and centre. For the front part, I used the oval shape card as the background of my sentiment. While for the black oval shape, I used it as a frame for my decoupage flower. It has been sometime since I used a decoupage image in my card. Maybe I should do it more often.

For the final touch, I added some pearls and a die cut butterfly. Oh yes...and some gold border stickers too.

Decoupage Flowers

During the weekend I managed to find some lovely coloured cards. My flower box is also becoming empty, so I need to start stamping and die cutting or maybe hand cutting some flowers and leaves. For those of you who are familiar with my Craft With Love blog, will definitely know by now that I just love floral theme projects.

Special Fold Birthday Card

Looking forward to completing more projects this week, hopefully. Until then, Craft With Love
