A couple of cards





I had to make a card for my friends birthday today, so being reminded of the lovely card I made during one of Maddy's classes at Sticky Fixers craft club I decided to do one on the same lines :-) The flower motif was made using ink's & embossing powder. The edge of the card was scalloped & then the holes were made with a cropodile. I used the swiss dots embossing folder & matted it onto the matching paper. The sentiment was stamped onto a circle punch & matted onto a scalloped punched circle. I used some of my new stash from Creative Treasures - the ribbon :-)


Again the photography is rubbish - the colours match much better than portrayed - the motif looks 'orangey' but is red!?





So I then decided to do one of the challenges on Crafts by Carolyn. A really nice challenge using Bingo Calls. I've gone for the 'Key of the door' 21 :-) The key is a mountboard die cut which I have alcohol inked.
