Lacy Sunshine - Emily Spring Ladybugs

Good morning fellow bloggers! The card that I have to share with you today is one which I was inspired to make when I saw Chris (Always about Colour) demonstrate it on C&C tv and also at
 Sir Stampalot a few weeks ago. The card Chris made was a 6x6 card so I have had to change the sizes as I wanted to make mine 8x8.

Basically I made the bottom shelve by cutting a piece of card 41/2" long by 8". I scored at 1/2" and again at 1", this creates the shelve, with the 1/2" piece to adhere to the base card.. The second shelve I made by cutting a piece of card 7" long x 61/4". I scored at 1/2" and again at 1" this again creates a shelve with the 1/2" to adhere to the base card. Cover the shelves in your chosen papers and adhere to the base card (also covered in chosen papers). I hope this makes sense!!! Not sure that mine is sitting as nicely as Chris's though:(

The items that I used:
  • Lacy Sunshine digi -Emily Ladybugs... coloured in with copics.
  • Papers are Maja Design -Vintage Spring Basics, available from Live and Love Crafts
  • Cardstock used - 8x8card blank and lilac core'dinations.
  • Spellbinder dies used: Cherry Blossom and Labels Twenty Nine
  • The vintage shabby cork hearts, shabby seam binding, and diamonte button are all available from Live and Love crafts.
  • The flowers, pearls, lace and sentiment (Whimsy Stamps) are all available from The Hobby House.
