After seeing the fantastic embossed card on Marlou's blog I said I'd give it a go. I used a brown/copper pearlised card, some American Craft ribbon and a chipboard sentiment I had lying around. Not half as elegant as Marlou's card but I really like the idea :) So here is my effort...
Love this embossing folder, the birds and swirls are so pretty:
While I had my craft area in a mess I decided to go for it and make a few more. I already had some images stamped and coloured so it was just a matter of matting and choosing papers.
This one I used the same technique, with the embossing but only did it on the top half of the card. 2 self adhesive white gems, some ribbon and a sentiment finished it off nicely. I really love this particular card.
House Mouse cards :)
The text on this card was from a challenge on Daring Card Makers. I didn't enter the challenge but I liked the text so I saved it and finally decided to use it. I'm not entirely sure this card is finished, it's just missing something.. imho :)
And finally just a couple of others I made from bits of paper I had and didn't think I'd use!
I used the DCWV Spring papers on this one:
Piggytales "Gretel" collection:
This was just some pale blue cardstock (should have embossed it!!) and some 7Gypsies paper I had left over from the MCC class layout this month.
So, all in all I had a very productive evening :)
