Postcards from the edge

Today we start a new fortnightly challenge over at Crafty Boots and this time the theme is postcards. Here’s the card I made :


This pretty postcard image is from The Gecko Galz and I’ve teamed it with some pink designer paper from my stash. I have wracked my brains trying to remember where this paper originates from but I have no idea!


That inked edge you can see is all part of the image – isn’t that brilliant?!


I’ve added some strips of frothy white lace and a tiny seam binding bow. I’ve noticed that just recently I have been gravitating towards net lace rather than crochet lace that I would normally plump for.


I’ve cut out an extra butterfly and layered it over the original to add dimension, popping on some gems for its body.


Be sure to buzz over to Crafty Boots and see what the rest of the DT have been up to and we’d love it if you were to share your projects with us.

I can confess now that the card below start out as my DT sample but was so full of roses I just had to share over at City Crafter Challenge Blog 🙂



Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Another fabulous postcard card, they make great cards. The butterfly in the centre of this one is gorgeous and, the way you have layered it, makes it jump, or should I say fly, off the card.

    I hope you have a good week.

    • Thank you – I love this butterfly too! Strangely, I can’t remember the last time I used gems and I used to use them all the time! xx

  2. You hit this challenge clear out of the park. I love the coordination of the colours. Sometimes we buy paper and other items just because and it works out in the end. Have a lovely day.

  3. Both of these are stunning! Love the butterfly on the first one and the roses and lace are so romantic on the second one. ~Diane

  4. Wow, I love both cards! So soft and romantic and butterflies are my favourite, so love those!! That rose paper is gorgeous and I love your use of the delicate laces! Stunning 🙂

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
