Love is in the air...


Seem to be making lots of wedding and anniversary cards at the moment. The little extra was to make an Anniversary card this week, Life is very stressful here at the moment so I wanted to make a card just for indulgence(not made with anyone in mind or for any particular reason), and I felt much better afterwards!

So this card is not made in my usual style, I tried making a new card shape I haven't used before and I stamped the surface(I know, bizarre- no patterned paper!!) and do you know what- it was fun!! I think I might go to a few card making lessons at my local craft store for a bit of 'me time' just to try some new techniques (I have never tried heat embossing, don't even have a heat gun!)




cardstock, red chalk ink, cheapo rubber stamp from The Paper Mill Shop, ribbon,eyelets and brad from stash, small scalloped scissors. What I like about this card is the coloured section inside.

I made another one in pink for a birthday.


Off now to have a look what everyone else has come up with, that's the great thing about cardmaking, one theme and everyone comes up with something totally different!

These cards are lovely and the shape makes them so different. I bet once you've tried heat embossing you'll wonder how you survived without it!! I did.

These are FAB, I love the folder idea, it nlooks really neat. I was looking at them and thinking, they'd look great the other way up as a tag pocket thing - but have just realised they wouldn't stand up that way would they duh!

Anyway, I love these cards Sarah - well done
