Here are the cards that I have made
For this I used a embossing folder as a stamp to do the back ground then heat embossed this. I love the effect that it gives.
I was really pleased how this worked out as it was the first time that I have incorporated using the sewing machine within my designs. This was much easier than I first thought and I like the bunting idea as it makes a really bright and cheerful card. The little bows I made using a fork here is the video I used.
My Husband really enjoys the outdoors and is attempting the welsh 3000's in the Summer. Due to this, this year I decided to make him a map inspired Birthday card. I therefore looked for inspiration on the Internet and found a super free Digi stamp download on Just rite paper craft. For the backing of the card and the tag I wanted something rustic looking so I used the chipboard from the back of an A4 pad of paper. All that I did was do a good quality scan of the OS map for the background.
I hope that you like these ideas I will be back in a few days with some Mothers Day inspiration!!
