More Cards

Been card making! what a surprise I hear you say.

I've got the two samples for my ladies group tomorrow afternoon.

I'm not sure the ladies will get both cards finished as the Babushka card could be a bit challenging for their skill level. But we will see how they go.
The second card is a bit fiddly as the base card has to be cut to shape. I know you can buy them already cut, but I don't have enough or in the right colour, so they are going to have to cut their own.

The Babushka card is made using a set of Kaszazz Babushka stamps. The background paper is a from a paper stack I bought in Spotlight, so it's an relatively cheap one, I've matted it onto a green paper from the same stack.
Babushka is stamped onto Stampin Up Whisper White using Real Red ink then fussy cut out and flat mounted onto the pattern paper. The Doll on the front is layered, I stamped a second doll, and cut out the face and apron and dimensionally mounted them onto the base image. a few gems to finish.

The Christmas Card is made using a Transparent sticker with a double embossed engraved verse. They are from Doodey and you can buy them from Blue Edge Crafts.
I stuck the sticker onto white card and fussy cut it out. The Sticker topper is mounted with foam mounts. As mentioned before, the base card I've used you can also buy from Blue Edge Crafts, but I've made this one myself. I covered it in a block Christmas design which I found in my stash. Sorry I can't tell you where it came from as it had no name on it. I edged the pattern paper with a narrow gold border peel off, also available from Blue Edge Crafts.
Inside the card, the pattern paper is from Stampin up, I used punches to punch out the snowflakes from crystal glitter paper which I get from Blue Edge Crafts, the holly leaf was punched from a scrap and I used a small circle hand punch to cut the berries, you could use gems instead though.

The Label is a Spellbinder die and I edged it in SU Real Red before flat mounting for a personal message.

I hope you like the cards I've made today.
Thank you for visiting, come again soon.
