Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi and welcome to my blog all my craft loving
friends and visitors.
Thank you for all your comments on my last
card and box.

Today I have a card I made with my Burst of 
Splendor paper.


Now the inside.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I distress inked the edges of the white card with
Victorian Velvet, and Dusty Concord Distress
Inks, that gave it such a lovely colour.
I distress inked the matting card and the paper
with Dusty Concord too.
Now this paper comes double sided so I 
photocopied the lovely back piece because I 
wanted to use the border on the bottom of the
I made the flowers from the same paper.
You  will find the tutorial for these flowers at
the top of my page.
I coloured my seam binding ribbon with Pine
Needles Distress ink. Wear rubber gloves to
do this otherwise you will have green hands
for a few days. lol.
I haven't put a sentiment on it yet as it's not
for anyone, just to go in my collection to be 
used at a later date.

Thank you for your visit and time.
I do hope you are all keeping well.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
