One For Mum

The challenge at Cuttlebug Mania is One For Mum and at the Crafter's Cafe challenge is Mother or Female. For my card, I've used the XCut Doily die and cut a paper from Webster's Pages Best Friends pad which was free with a magazine. I've cut and folded the diecut to make a fan - I did this with a doily at a class at Jendenink but the doily was quite thin. whereas this is quick a good thick paper. I've added a tassle which is from a very old Trimcraft pack by Laurence Llewelyn Bowen and a button from my stash. I've layered some white card embossed with the Cuttlebug roses folder onto pale green card and put it all together. The sentiment is from the Delightful Dozen set by Stampin Up


  1. This is gorgeous! The embossing is a fabulous element that gives added depth and interest to your project! Thanks for playing with us this week at Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog.

  2. Oh my gosh - this really is FABULOUS!! I love it - divine colour theme. I've been reading QCME magazine today and was about to dig out my doilies - not with a fan in mind though. Brilliant idea to use a die to made a sturdier version.

    I franctically checked to see if you'd used a snippet so you could come and show the girls in the Playground :)

    Hugs, Di xx
