So I was doing a bit of ‘tidying up’ on my camera and computer and found a few cards that I’ve made and not yet posted… I thought I’d get up-to-date and give you a Bank Holiday treat with all three today.
Yes, three cards to share!! (Lots of pics coming up then…) Hope you enjoy…
For this first cad, I just mounted some pretty patterned paper (DoCrafts) in an aperture card and layered up a swirly diecut embellished with a moulded rose embellishment that I made from FIMO (mould from Mold Muse at Etsy). The chipboard sentiment is Crate Paper.
This diecut swirl came free in an order that I placed with Dies to Die for. Yummy.
I am always tempetd by lots of the intricate dies (like those by Memory Box) but it flummoxes me how to attach them neatly to my cards without making a gluey mess. Tiny double-sided tape pieces just aren’t going to work for these little flourishes and applying small dots of wet glue is tricky – I find they all too often ‘squelch’ out of the sides of these fine cut shapes.
Got any tips friends?
Meanwhile, here’s another card….
I made this card for a friend at work’s birthday, so kept the colour scheme suitably masculine and a collage-y feel.
Layered up music score patterned paper… rounded corners….. a stamped vintage postcard image (Hero Arts)… stapled on a ribbon strip (ancient Karen Foster, printed with cameras!)…
Last one for today… a bright and friendly thank you:
I began with a stamped strip, heat embossed in pale pink: Woodgrain background by Hero Arts, and added a punched strip to the front edge of the card (Fiskars ‘Threading Water’).
The flowery patterned strip and matching embellishment were in a magazine freebie pack ages ago…. Didn’t need much else – just added a gem to finish:
