now is the beginning of my card making season, loads of birthdays and stuff. here is the first batch
the first card is a birthday card for my new son in-law (opps a bit late ) he is another cricket fan.
I have started to print greetings on the computer and adding glossy or crackle accents. I really like the look of the crackle, epecially when the paper shrinks too.
This next card is a welcome home card for the happy couple from their honeymoon. I used the same tweedle dee and tweedle dum stamp I used on their wedding card. The background is a colour chart card. purple of course!
The last card is for someone at work who is leaving to start a 'proper' job as a teacher. I thought it was time I had a change from all the grungy stuff and made a slightly cute-sier card. The stamp was a freeby from a magazine.
The papers are from papermania and the embossing from a Tim folder (well he has to get in on the action somewhere). The ribbon is a knitting yarn I brought ages ago and have not used much except for present wrapping, it is very silky but looks ok.
well I'm off to try my hand at grungy monday http://studiol3.blogspot.com/ but not sure what to do as I'm not really feeling very well! And I still have lots of other cards to make too
