Oooh, It's good to be off work, on holiday! We broke up yesterday and have a week and two days off on half term...yipeee! Just think, the next school holidays will be the christmas holidays! (and we only break up on the Wednesday....christmas day is the Saturday!) I'm not too worried....as I prob have about half my christmas pressies already....been trying to get a few in every weekend for the past few weeks!
Anyway... here is a card I made recently for a friend to give at an evening do...her friend had got married abroad and they were having a "do" back at home, when they got back. I got this embossed frame at Leigh craft show recently....they were a very good buy! It's a pity thoguh, that I can't remember the name of the stall I got them off, as I would like some more....oh well, I may try and make some myself :) So, all I did, was to lightly colour the edges of the card with dusky pink chalk, add a few pearls and more chalk to the flowers and more chalking around the sentiment in the middle. Quick a quick and easy card, once I knew what I was going to do!
On the same stall, I bought these little embossed toppers.... and they even had a foiled sentiment on, too! I matted the topper on mirrorcard, added some gems (and on some of the cards, I added extra flowers around the edge) oe sometimes - instead of gems - I used little blobs of stickles. Quick, and effective.... though I wish I could remember the name of that stall.... :) xx
