I made this card for an order..I die cut an oval and using the waste part I inked through it onto the base card with green and blue inks. I stamped a stampin up cricket set onto various scraps of cardstock and fussy cut the images, and stuck them onto the base card . I kept it all very simple as that is what my customer wanted, and I really like this one!Back to work this week after my holidays, and taking things very easy with my shoulder! til tomorrow….
I had to make some age cards for men, so I dug out some older paper from Kaisercraft – Sears and son, and the matching collectables. I used a new technique on the top card, one that I have been doing on a few cards lately – embedded embossing. I fussy cut some images from the paper ,stuck it on my background piece and ran it through an embossing folder ,in this case a kaisercraft brand called postcards. I just added some twine,and a button for some added interest. I have a class this morning and so looking forward to seeing my ladies,so I must make a move. til tomorrow….
Today’s kaisercraft sail away cards….The top card has a piece of 12 x 12 paper for the background layer,and a kaisercraft die called bubbles (I think), The circles are from the 6″ pad,and I inked around the edges of them with distress inks ( stormy skies) to define them a little bit. Tyhe bottom card is made with papers from the 6″ pad,and a panel from a piece of 12 x 12 paper, The chain is a kaisercraft die, and the silver frame is from a kit I bought quite some time ago from stampin up. I did enjoy going through my drawer of old bits and pieces for these cards! A lovely day here in Aqdelaide, sun is shining, not too hot and my roast is in the oven, so all is good here in Helenland! til tomorrow…..
