Two new cards

I've been a bit slow at putting these cards up, so I thought I should get a move on! The first card is one I made for my friends mom, she was 60. It was my first attempt at using the Ladybug and Friends stamp. I was a bit worried how the 'purple elephant' would turn out but I'd chosen the colours to match the PP and think it has worked out ok. I chalked around the stamp because the white card didn't seem to fit in.



This second card was made for my friend who has just had a little girl. The paper is actually from a little stack I found in Tesco's. It is SO thin and not good quality but it's fine once backed onto card. I did the Holly lettering using my Olivia Cuttlebug alphabet. I have found Kate's advice very useful, in that because the letting is so thin, it can be tricky to stick them onto the card. So what makes it much easier if you put double sided tape on the back of the card BEFORE you cut the letters, so then once you've got the letters, you can just peel off the tape and stick them on. It does mean you waste a bit of tape but it's so much easier. So there's a little tip for you all, incase you didn't already know ;-) I did the scallop free hand, it's not very perfect but hopefully you can't tell!



Right I'm off to watch the Murray game!!!
