St Luke's Charity Card Challenge is to use lots of it, so I had a go.I thought I would start with some embossed pattern so I chose some Core'dinations card and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Floral Fantasy embossing folder. I then found a co- ordinating Artylicious patterned paper, which I cut to cover the front of my card just leaving a very narrow border and using a corner punch to round off the top right hand corner. I sanded the embossd card to reveal the core colour and cut a strip and fixed it to the lefthand side.I added a piece of patterned Papermania ribbon towrds the bottom and then on some paper from a Papermania pad I stamped two Elusive Images butterflies. I coloured the details with a turquoise glitter gel pen and cut them out. I stuck them to the card with silicone glue so that I could raise the wings slightly. I am reasonably pleased with the result, although it very different to what I usually make.
St Luke's is a hospice in Sheffield providing care for people over 18 who have serious illness. When you take part in the monthly card making challenges, if you want to you, can donate the card you make to help raise funds towards the running costs of the hospice. A very worthwhile cause I'm sure you'll agree.
