Good morning crafters, I hope you hall had a great weekend

It’s Monday, so before today’s card here’s our weekly voucher winner (drawn at random from the comments we had left last week)

 

It’s you…

Well done Brenda, email me anne@liliofthevalley.co.uk for your voucher code

 

There will be another voucher next Monday so be sure you leave us a comment as you pass through to be in with a chance of winning – we do enjoy reading them all!

Today I have another card to show you from our Guest Designer for June    …it’s the fabulous Anita

I thought this was appropriate with the Strawberries seeing as it’s Wimbledon time. It’s a tennis tournament if you’re outside the UK and don’t know about it, it’s traditional to eat strawberries and cream while you watch the tennis   …quite often in the pouring rain lol!

I was speechless when I opened the pictures that Anita sent me, how amazing is this card?

Anita used the Blooming Wheelbarrow stamp, coloured it with Distress Inks and then cut out the image

She used 2 tags to make ​​a pop up card and bound them with Spellbinder Bracket Borders One

 Anita loves pop up cards, she says you can have a party on the inside!  The banner is made with Noor flag dies trimmed with alphabet letters (also Noor) and then embossed with UTEE

The flowers and grasses are Joy crafts dies and it’s completed with the delicious Strawberries, again stamped, coloured and cut out and finally a sentiment from Set 28 - Vintage Labels – Occasions

Let the party begin!

I hope you like it as much as we did, you’ve loved Anita’s work so far throughout June and there will be another card from her next week

See you tomorrow
