Gorjuss Angels

I think that this is my favourite image from the new set of Gorjuss girls from Sugar Nellie (though it is a hard choice)

This is one of my first efforts in using her but I'm sure I will do more. In this instance I made a thinking of you card but the image could be used in a sympathy card I think or even a confirmation card.

I 've tried to keep it simple as less is more with the image so it is coloured with promarkers. the background is embossed vellum and the sentiment is printed onto Safmat. Its the first time I have used Safmat but will definately not be the last as its so nice to be able to make a sentiment in exactly the size and font I want. Finally the card is edged in silver though this doesn't show up in the photograph.

Oh yes photographs, thats something else I need to improve! Took my an age even to figure out how the crop.


  1. what a lovely card,
    love the colours and I think this is my favourite gorjuss too.
    The mica is painted to the image before sealing with the waxed paper x

  5. Beautiful card, you have done a lovely job with an image which I think is perhaps a rather difficult one to use, as you say it would work so well on a sympathy card.

  6. your cards are fabulous, so glad you took the plunge into blogland!
    Have a great weekend, Debx

  7. What a lovely card SP. Beautifully coloured.

    Those gorjuss girls are well named.

    I have some safmat. Only used it once though on a leaving card for a work colleague of my DD's. It did look pretty though. Shall have to look it out and make more use of it.

    By the way thanks for the support over on my new blog too.
