Over at the Less Is More Challenge site this weeks challenge is about using the colours of Your Flag.
Was really impressed by the St George flag card that Mandi did, so very beautiful and was inspired to have a go using the colours from the Union Jack. Here are my three cards. I have used some of the images that i already had stamped as i wanted to use already stamped and cut pieces to make the cards this week. There are so many pieces lying around that i don’t use and thought it was about time i started to look at how i craft and to try and be more economic. Hope these cards are okay for this weeks challenge.
This card was done using a Fiskars heart hand held die cut, chose two different types of card and one heart in vellum. The vellum heart is from a Dawn Bibby set i purchased many years ago, it was my first purchase from QVC and my first ever proper card kit.The border was made from an Avec border punch then coloured with DI Barn Door and Chipped Sapphire. Added Icicle Stickles for a tad of bling.
Will make the envelope on my Pazzle Inspiration as it is an odd shape. Used Cuttlebug Embossing Folders large spot and swiss dots to make the background. Added ribbon from stash and another vellum heart from Dawn Bibby kit and the Icicle Stickles to add a touch of bling.
This card is another cut off from making a square card from an A4 sheet. Folded into three and added the animals from Inkadinkado Patterned Pets set. Added ribbon from stash and used Sakura Gel Pens to add colour and shine. Decided to add a tad extra to these cards and after added some very funky coloured paper clips so this could also be part of a present to whoever gets the card.
Thanks for dropping by:-)
