Daughters are ....

SO SO nosy....
I suppose it's my Fault..
I have spent the day making Hannah's Christmas card
And the whole time Hannah has been sat next to me
Normally she would be in her room,
in the garden or anywhere I am not
but no today because I wanted to make HER card
she stuck to me like glue
Now I didn't say who the card was for
just sat down and started to craft..
Hannah has watched everything I have done !!!
She is now in bed (for the time being anyway)
So my chance to show you all
this may turn into a long post
so much so I have made myself a coffee
(big grin)
Here I have all my parts cut
I have DST the image onto the red card
ready to cut round
The card will be A4
the reason why... the image is rather BIG

here I have more things on the PC table
I have added ribbon and tied the bow ready
flowers are waiting along with my 
die cut leaves

And here it is finished.. !!!
haha... sorry couldn't resist
no this is just the backing paper for the front.
me being me... didn't finish the front
I started the inside

And finished the inside too
yes it's wonkey... very wonkey
There is a reason
Yes the main piece of paper went on wonky
so YES I am trying to hide the fact
I attached it

I had the idea of what I wanted the flowers to look like
I don't have many and don't very often use them
I spent at least half an hour arranging them on my mat
then decided I would cheat
I cut a small piece of red card the width of the roses
so you wouldn't see them
and made the flowers in layers
the white leaves first then the roses over the top
as you can see here I have two roses done
and I am going to do this again
it was so much easier than trying to get them in the right place on the card without the worry the glue would dry tooooo quickly
Sorted and Happy claire.
now to put the card together
here is is !!!
now I then had an idea..which at the time I thought was good
I will use up some of the tiny little gold dots
round the edge of the image were I have crincle cut !!
you know the ones....
there you go..the little tiny ones off the peel off sheets
yes lets add them round the image !!
I was not impressed at all with MY idea..
it took me for ever to get them off the sheet
how long !!! 35 minutes to attach them all the way round

It does look nice though
Oh and my flowers !!!
I am rather pleases with these

It is the first time I have added white leaves !!
but it will not be the last..
Now if I had a holly punch....
I also added a few sticky dots here and there

I do have a small name card 
blank of course to add to the front
But I won't be doing that until
just before I write on the card

So there is the card finished
Hope you like it
