It's been almost 2 weeks since I was last in blogland.  I hope everyone is well and enjoying lots of crafty time.  I've made a couple of cards last night and this afternoon.  Earlier in the week I tried making box-envelopes for some of my more embellished cards.  That didn't quite work out, I didn't have any instructions to follow so  it took me a few tries to get it almost right but not quite good enough to give to anyone, so ended up just making boxes for them.  It made making my cards seem easy lol!

This Art Deco lady came free with the Docrafts Creativity magazine.  I stamped it on to a plain white card.  I used my Tied together embossing folder on a 5x7 card which was mostly hidden by my stamped image, so I dry embossed  a polkadot pattern around the image added some flowers, jewels and home made beaded pins.
I coloured in using promarkers

The 2nd card is another variation with die-cuts and card candi.  The image was coloured using Distress inks (Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac)



Christmas card, plain card embossed using Spellbinders M-bossabilities Christmas folder EL-014  Mariane snowflakes,  Spellbinders circles, scalloped and plain, printed sentiment from pc, left over sticky backed jewels and an image from my stash

Thanks for popping by, enjoy the rest of your week.

  14. Gorgeous cards Anne, I love the peacock feathers distress colour - one of my favourites! I know what you mean about box envelopes, I'm hopeless at them too. Always end up making boxes, but they look good anyway so why not?
