Two ladies !

If only you knew how long it's taken me to write this post ! To say I've fallen out with the internet is putting it mildly ! For some bizarre reason my internet connection keeps failing, and it's getting way past a joke now! Anyway, while the going is good I'd better crack on! The card I'm sharing with you today is my Katzelkraft project for this week and it is also a birthday card for one of my nieces.

The stamp set I've used is Femmes 1900 I really love these images and they will be perfect for my niece ! They're stamped with black Archival ink then I've cut them out using Labels 17 Nestabilities which I've blended Broken China DI around the edge. The embossed panel is made with a Stampin' Up EF and then I've rubbed Broken China DI over the top. The swirl is cut using the Tim Holtz Elegant Flourishes die and I've also embossed this with the same EF and rubbed Broken China DI over the top too. The butterfly is another Tim Holtz die and I've given it the same treatment as the swirl and added some beads in the centre. The paper is from the Vintage Shabby paper stack, which I picked up at the week end after I sold some cards unexpectedly ! I have to say it is rather gorgeous so it took me ages before I could bring myself to actually cut into it !

The ribbon is seam binding which I've coloured with Broken China DI and the flower is cut using the Tattered Flowers die from crinoline then I've tipped the edges with Broken China DI. The sentiment was done on my PC.

The stamps I've used are available exclusively from The Craft Barn in the UK and from Katzelkraft in France.

Right I shan't linger as I don't know how much longer my connection will last..........


  1. Gorgeous card your Christmas card with the pears too.......I have a 'thing' about pears.
    Sorry to hear you are having problems with t'internet. The only thing that cured all of the problems we were having was to reset the computer to factory level and now it's fabulous. You do have to remember to save anything important or wanted onto disc though.

  2. Hi Sue, I love the whole card, your niece will get a huge surprise when she sees it. Beautiful colours.
