Nostalgic Bowls

A card for an avid Bowls fanatic.
I used cream and brown A4 card stock. Papermania Nostalgia Stamps. So trendy M-bossabilities and one of the Fancy tags, Labels fourteen and Vintage photo ink.

I embossed a piece of card to sit down the middle of the card but before embossing it I used my inkpad on one side of the m-bossability to get the mottled effect, I then matted it onto brown card. I stamped out the greeting, the main image and stamped 50 down each side of the card . I cut the image using Labels fourteen and a larger one in brown card for the mat. cut the greeting with the fancy tag. I used the ink on the main image and the greeting before removing them from the die. then put the card together using glue for the main strip down the middle and foam tape for the image and greeting to give dimension to the finished card

Lacey delights (Spellbinders)


A fancy fold card inspired by Sue Wilson,

I decided to use Turquiose and white for this card and it was all done from A4 cardstock.

I used the Persian Dies Motifs and accents to create the main fancy fold instructions are on Sue's Blog.
I embossed one of the Persian accent dies along the edge rather than cut it.

Printed the greeting and cut it with a Damask accent die that reminds me of a fancy padlock. added a ribbon anf the numbers cut from a cuttlbug font set
