Heidi - Sunday 18th August

Hello Friends,

Today is my latest design team card for Nicecrane Designs, a really sweet vintage drawing of Heidi by Jessie Wilcox. The illustrations are available pre-coloured or as digi stamps and I have chosen the latter. You can view and purchase these and so many other beautiful Vintage designs here and Ignacio's Nicecrane blog here

Well making this card brought back childhood memories of reading the book and watching the TV series, which I remember really well for some reason..probably the goats, all my childhood TV memories seem to revolve around series where animals featured...Black Beauty, White Horses, Belle and Sebastian (all of which I later discovered where old even when I watched them!) and my favourite of all, Follyfoot!

Anyway, I digress...

I chose a shaped card with an open pattern around the sides and top, which I decided to thread some gingham ribbon through. I coloured the image with promarkers and die cut using Spellbinders Labels 17. I used the little flowers from the window box die (by Tonic) that I have been using lately, die cut some leaves and cut some grass freehand, then I coloured them all with promarkers and brushed the edges with distress inks. I also die cut and punched  some extra flowers. To finish off I added some little gingham buttons.

Thank you so  much for stopping by!
 Love and crafty hugs,
Carole X

  3. Oh my goodness what wonderful memories this evokes Carole! Ii really loved all the Heidi books.I was (still am) an avid reader, much preferring to have my head stuck in a book rather than watching a film or TV. This is a great card and I love the shape. Christine xx
