Glitter card and die cutting…

Leave a comment

_MG_4615 (Medium) I was going to put up two cards today as I will probably be missing for a few days as it’s the craft fair this weekend and I will be there with my stall for three days, but this card has a few different techniques on it to explain…Firstly, layers of white, the top layer embossed with a stampin up embossing folder.I die cut the bride and groom from glitter cardstock, die cut the fancy border with a kaisercraft die, also in white, as was the die cut circle) The chipboard heart was foiled with my go press and foil machine, and a little flat backed pearl popped onto it, I made the flower spray¬† by creating the bunch and twisting the stems together. The leaf spray was die cut and I added a white ribbon. Although it looks like I spent quite some time creating the card all these bits and pieces were already on my craft table from other projects so it took no time at all and it is one of my favourite cards! Til tomorrow…..

All White..

_MG_4595 (Medium) One of my favourite cards to make is all white. I usually do all white for wedding cards when I am not sure of the colour scheme used in the wedding, but this time I made a birthday card. I have a lot of embossing folders, they are great for adding texture – imagine this card without the embossing!.This embossing folder is from Stampin Up as is the birthday stamp sentiment. I die cut the circle, punched out the leaves, and added flowers and a ribbon bow.¬† I have lots of new things to play with this weekend. This is almost the best part of my job..trying out new stuff! this weekend I will be road testing the Tim Holtz travel stamp platform, and the new magnetic die cutting plate from Couture Creations. I also have new papers – (yay) Memory Lane by kaisercraft – gorgeous pastel greens which I think will also work with Christmas cards later in the year so it doesn’t matter if I don’t use all of it just now. That said I am off to open new things! Til tomorrow….
