Thanks for helping me nail it!

This ‘Thank you’ card is for some very lovely ladies who have helped me to ‘nail it’ and add another skill string to my creative bow.

I’ve recently been taking courses in something that has interested me for a number of years. I can now happily announce that I am able to perform manicures and pedicures using both gel and regular nail polish.

I’ll explain a bit more at the end of this post, but first, the card I made for the fabulous tutors.

The card uses a mixture of old and new. Touches of Texture Stamp Set is combined with Pool Party, returning Blackberry Bliss and new Highland Heather. I’m really liking this classy colour combination.

Firstly I created the soft background of texture and flowers. I then stamped the stem of flowers and fill-in pieces before die cutting the image and layer.

The sentiment is from Thoughtful Banners and punched using the 1″ Circle Punch.

In the picture below you can see the Rhinestones in the centre of the flowers as a finishing touch. There is also Wink of Stella on the background flowers, but it doesn’t show up here.

Now back to nails. I’ll be setting up as a mobile nail technician working locally and will be able to provide more details when I’m up and running.

Just to confirm, this is as well as Stampin’ Up! The nails are a second strand to my business.

There are also lots of Papercraft & Pampering ideas running through my head so be sure to watch this space.

Happy crafting
