a handfull of fairies

today i made a handfull of fairy cards to hopefully sell in aid of breast cancer research. i love this stamp from butterfly kisses. the stamp comes in 2 parts, a front and a back, thus making it ideal to hang in an aperture. i have put pretty backing paper on the inside so that it shows through the aperture. there is a variety of embellishments, punched flowers and sequins etc on the outside. 2 of the cards have stamped flowers on the outside with some silver peel off highlights which are the same shape as the flower stamp.
the idea for these cards came about because i brought 11packs of 10 cards from smiths for 1p each pack. however the cards were silver wedding invitations so i had to cut out the middle and cover the inside invitation part. i knew this when i brought them but they are lovely square cream cards, too good to miss at that price. i have just used up the last 8 cards.
also today i made some more clear stamps using my image pack system, but it was a bit late in the afternoon , so they didnt work that well as i think it was a bit dark, i will try them out tomorrow
