Today I am back to say "Happy World Card Making Day to all my paper crafting buddies"!
Can you imagine what the world would be like without handmade cards? I certainly can't! But if anything, it would be a very sad place, I think. So if we can have a special day to celebrate card making - I'm all for it!
To join the celebrations the Stampendous HQ have prepared a collection of the DT's fave cards that they've made & shared this year so far. The card I chose as my favourite of the year was this Sunflower Wedding Card. I adoooore sunflowers so this card kind of fell into the faves bag by default lol. Oh well!
Be sure to check out my DT Sisters' picks - you will be amazed to see what a wonderful and talented bunch they are!
But today I also have another card to share :). The theme for this card was inspired by the old Russian fairy tale The Tale of the Fisherman and the Fish.
The tale is about a fisherman who manages to catch a "Golden Fish" which promises to fulfill any wish of his in exchange for its freedom. I was quite surprised to find out that my British friends weren't familiar with this tale - as it's certainly a well known 'classic' in Poland :).
With this card I decided to give my Golden Fish a nice fishbowl to live in. The fishbowl is actually a shaker made with 3D Foam Creative Sheets and acetate. Inside the bowl I have some lovely textured bubbles, corals and shells, mica fragments and sequins.
