Captain's Cards

I’m a member of Kings Hill Golf Club and today we have our AGM, the 1st post is a card I made for  our outgoing lady captain.

1st Post Outgoing Captain Jo’s card
Last Saturday at Eileen’s Allhallows workshop (, we were messing about with all things stencil &paste. I used the Lavinia poppy stencil ( & as soon as I made the topper I thought it would make a lovely focus for a card. 

Starting with the blank white craftwork card, I mat & layered a piece of white hammered card, adding ribbon to the toppers edge then matt & layered it over the hammered card using a doyley to create another layer and texture.  I added flowers, pins, gems & the craftwork sentiment & there you have it, my version of an all-white card.  I’m really pleased with this one; it came together without me changing anything.

My default base card is a square Craftwork 148x148 white card
White linin card from the papermill
White hammered card from the papermill
Lavinia Poppy Stencil
Dreamweaver pearlescent paste
Sentiment; craftwork cards
Pins, doyley, gems, pinch of glamor dust & ribbon from my stash
Thanks for looking
