I'm also pleased with the card because all the paper and card came from my 'bit' boxes as pieces left over from other projects, except for the base card. I'm sorry I can't tell you who manufactures any of the papers (I can rarely remember if they don't still have the name on) but there is a piece of card that I made using Starburst Stains and cling film and I used the same card to punch out the some of the flowers. I decided it was time I gave my punches an airing as the poor things have been hidden in a drawer and hardly used. I did get to use my new Fiskars Threading Water border punch (strange name I think) which I bought at the Sincerely Yours papercraft show at Hinckley last Sunday. I have to thank my eagle eyed friend Jo for that as she spotted it (the only one) and knew I had been wanting it for a while, so THANKYOU JO. For anyone who's thinking of buying this punch I can recommend it so far. I've tried it on several different types and thicknesses of paper and card, even hammered card, and it's worked beautifully.
The only stamping on the card is the First Birthday sentiment and the lovely little elephant. These stamps came from the Little Trumpettes themeplate by Aspects of Design, and sold by The Stampman, who also sells the Starburst Stains. I've just noticed I forgot to add a bit of sparkle to the little stars so must do that. I've used Nestability plain and scalloped ovals and a Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder which were from Once Upon a Stamp and I'm really pleased this lovely craft shop owned by Robert and Gordon, has moved from Chesterfield recently to a little place called Pleasley which is now only 10-15 minutes away from me.
I'm sorry the image looks a bit bowed. It isn't, but each photo I took looked the same so it's got to be my photography which is very hit and miss I have to admit. I've also just realised that I have to make a box for the card because all the little flower are 3 dimensional!
