TOMIC 34 - Oval card and embossing

Hi everyone and whoops, this post failed to publish this morning! A new challenge starts on TOMIC today and our theme is to make an oval card and use heat or dry embossing. I hope you can join us this time and as always there's some beautiful inspiriation from my DT friends.

I've used sweet Valentino, coloured with distress inks and cut out. My oval card is embossed using a Crafts Too hearts embossing folder and I've sanded back the hearts to reveal the kraft core of the coredinations card. I used the Doohickey 'so wrapped lovely' die for the heart elements which are cut from silver glitter card and I trimmed out the hearts from the die cut piece then layered them over another oval of embossed card with some sizzex die cut numbers. The Doohickey romantic lace was used to cut more glitter card to edge the second oval and I trimmed slits into the border once cut to make fit around the oval.

Enjoy your day :)

Tilda with Peony tails

Hi everyone! A card today with sweet Tilda with Peony tails from the Magnolia Sweet, Crazy Love 2012 collection. Tilda is water coloured and once again sitting in flowers :). I've used kraft card for the card base and matting and cut the top of the card with the Magnolia DooHickey romantic lace die. The patterned paper is Magnolia, I think from last summer and I used the DooHickey cloud tag die from the flag and clouds set to stamp the sentiment from the Lazy Summer Days collection. All the flowers apart from the roses are from Magnolia, I've added some seam binding and a pearl stick pin underneath them then a filigree metal corner and some pearls to finish.

I'm entering my card into the Everybody Art Challenge where this week the challenge is 'shabby'.
