Don’t forget the current 99¢ Digi Deal stamps are only available until March 1st and then they will be gone forever!If see something you like grab it while you still have the chance!

I’ve used Daisy Girl from Digi Doodle Shop for my card and water coloured her with Distress Inks.I decide to make a kick stand card.Here’s how it works :

I used a Tonic Edgers 5 Punch I picked up for £2.99!I lined it up my Border Punch System to create the continuous pattern.The image is cut out with a Nestie.The papers are some more scrummy Ooh La La for Him by Mind’s Eye – LOVE ’em!I even used one of the labels from the die-cut sheet to stamp the sentiment on to :

The flower on the front was made using the instructions from this Paper Flower Tutorial on Whimsical World of Laura Bird’s blog.I did use a 1″ circle punch for the purpose of this card.It was a little fiddly and it probably didn’t help that this a thin cardstock rather than a paper but as long as you get your folds as accurate and sharp as you can then you shouldn’t have too many problems.Much the same for all paper folding really.I added a gem brad to the centre.This was another bargain.The pack was only £1.99!

    This is so sweet! Your coloring is fabulous, and I love that flower you created. I have made similar ones, but never where you fold back the very top to create a three layer flower. Very cool! =D
