      Hi Christine,

      Thanks for your kind comment. I use UHU glue for the flowers. Cover all the outside petals of the flower with glue and attached to card. Hope this help.

    Wat vir my werklik besonders is van jou kaartjies is dat jy ook die binnekant sorgvuldig beplan. Dit is baie min dat daar soveel detail in die binnekaartjie ook gaan. Ek het sopas ‘n hele aand gesit en net jou kaartjies een-vir-een geniet…. Dankie vir die wonderlike inspirasie, Antoinette Pretorius

    I stumbled onto one of your cards & went to your website via Pinterest. I have to say your cards are absolutely the most beautiful, gorgeous, inventive I have ever seen! They are the #1 best of any I’ve seen made by anyone. Each one took my breath away. I just wish I had one tiny bit of your talent & I would be happy. You have been blessed with a God-given talent beyond any I’ve witnessed. You are truly an artist! Your cards should be framed & put in a museum, that’s how much I love them. I like the way you choose your colors & how you use them so creatively. The way you arrange your flowers are stunning! Thank you for sharing your work 🙂

    Your cards are truly works of art! I love the ones with a Victorian air to them. I wish I could make these someday! I’m sure it would take much experimenting! I can’t imagine getting a card as beautiful as these. Most definitely a keepsake for generations to come!

    Hallo Amelia,

    Ik vind je kaartjes altijd heel verzorgd en supermooi. Regelmatig smul ik van weer een heel ander kaartje ga zo door!! Aangezien het Zuid-Afrikaans
    veel van het Nederlands weg heeft heb ik het dan ook in het Nederlands getypt ;0.
