I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part-time but my love was always drawing. I started card making about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a card making kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like-minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and it’s just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
Even though I set the challenge it was a toughie as I had so many ideas swirling around in my little pea brain but decided to keep it nice and simple. Of course I used my Cameo to cut out this lovely little angel. I used the negative space for the base and the cut out part was  triple embossed with SU gold embossing powder and replaced  into its original place with black card underneath to give a little contrast.
Mr Holtz’s on the edge die was used for the side panels one in black and the other in mirror card which was embossed and then matted and a little resin flower added for balance. The sentiment was computer generated.
Made a matching butterfly envelope for my little angel , once again using my Cameo and some lovely vellum paper.
Do pop over to Crafty Cardmakers to see the rest of the DT’s amazing creations and hopefully you will play along !
Right am off to carry on with my secret crafty mission !!

Take care

  2. Such gorgeous CAS card, Marie. I love your gold embossing and TH edge die, and such a beautiful vellum envelope to go with your card. Great Cameo work, as always! xx

  3. A really lovely card Marie, I really like the triple embossed angel it looks great in contrast to the black and the embossed side panel looks amazing. Brilliant envelope too, I never think to make envelopes. I wonder if my hubbie would buy me a cameo if I ask really nicely? Your cards are always so inspiring they make me consider making an investment.

    I’m very intrigued to find out what your secret crafty mission is now.


  4. Hi, Marie! Dear friend, this is absolutely gorgeous! I adore your triple embossed angel–she’s beautiful! LOVE all that white space, too!!! Fabulous creation! 🙂

  5. This is such a beautiful card, I adore the angel, and her simplicity, the hologram edge, all of it, and the sentiment was soooo lovely. All that and a beautiful envelope to top it off.
    Glad to see you’re hosting for a fortnight, I know you’ll do an amazing job, and I know your secret hehe……
    Btw mines a Tina Marie and coke!

  6. And mine’s a vodka and coke! Your card is gorjuss – reminds me of when my daughter was little and she had dress up fairy wings. So many secrets on the go at the moment!!! xx

  7. Hi Marie
    The gold on the edging is a beautiful touch, a lovely whimsical appearance to the first card and the second card is so delicate.
    Gorgeous cards.
