Tattered Lace Part 3

Nanny day today as I had to take Mia for  another injection , then shopping and visiting Great Grandma. So for Mrs B , here's a photo of a very sleepy little girl.
 And another of her other favourite pastime eating..............

This card was made using some construction acetate with a piece of Centura Pearl top and bottom. I used Kew Garden border for the top panel and the fence for the bottom. Before sticking the fence  I added some Peeled Paint Distress ink to the Centura.
The sunflowers were cut from white card then coloured with Spectrum Noirs, after which they were attached to the acetate , I glued  the open areas of the flowers and leaves on the opposite side of the acetate. Glittering each flower after gluing to prevent colour contamination . Then leave to dry, this was the hardest part.

Happy Crafting


  1. Hi Karen.
    Thank you beautiful photos of Mia. Also beautiful card. Have fun take care, Kitty

  2. Hi Karen. Thank yo for the pics of Mia. She is such a little cracker with those gorgeous brown eyes : ) Enjoy her as time passes so quickly. I can't believe that one of our Granddaughters is nearly 5 and the other is 3. It doesn't seem like 5 mins since they were like Mia! Then again, I feel the same about my own children of 27, 24 and 19, you probably feel the same, don't you! Where does the time go?
    The card is gorgeous. I love using acetate as the card base and this one is wonderful, the sunflowers are perfect for this : ) Take care.

  3. I LOVE this card! I saw it on the telly and i'm so glad it was you who made it, cos it means that I get some instructions on how it was made! So thanks for sharing, i'm certainly going to have a go at something very similar, providing you don't mind of course! Thanks Sarah

  4. I agree Mrs B, time does seem to go quicker the older you get, can't believe my two girls are 23 and 19. Mia is a lot better at sleeping and entertaining herself, more placid than my two.
    Yes of course Sarah, any problems just message me. Send me a photo when you have made it. x
