Good Evening all
As promised I am uploading, up close pictures, of my cards from yesterday. I had a chance to take them this morning, when the light was a little better, and I am taking the opportunity to post them now while cooking the tea! (Spaghetti Bolognese in case you are interested!)
I keep looking at them and I really love them, sad I know, but I think they are a really stylish alternative to the norm so here we go with the first one the floral card with apertures for buttons so you can see through to the back.
On the inside of the card I thought the buttons on their own looked a little random, so I included a picket fence from e-craft central, I have become a little picket fence obsessed of late, and I am putting them wherever I can manage! I also included some stems and leaves so the buttons look like flowers. Since this photo was taken I have added leaves to the two smaller flowers too, on my husbands creative advice!
Next up is my favourite the Party card, which is a fab little 3D number which folds flat into an A6 envelope (the envelope is included with the SVG’s as well so you can cut one out of pretty paper :). I love this card, the bunting is very “on trend” and I have stuck another little picket fence inside to carry on the garden party theme, that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it!
Here is the card from the side so you can see the dimension. I totally love it.
Who can spot the difference between this card and the previous photo from yesterday? correct answers will be drawn at random tomorrow night and a lucky winner will receive a bottle of the best glue in the world Collall all Purpose , which I used to make all these cards. I won’t approve the comments with correct answers in till tomorrow all in one go to keep it fair and not give the answer away 🙂
Next up is a get well card, love this design, I’ve also taken a close up picture of the text which is the faux chipboard effect using 5 layers of text layered up, a really cool effect.
The faux chipboard lettering
The last two cards are the Hello You and Just because cards, I love them both as they are a bit different, but fit in with the “set” perfectly. There are another two cards and two gift boxes in this svg set from www.svgcuts.com, for $6.99, it’s a snip, because I will use them time and again. Especially to make little card gift sets for friends and family.
I’ve used my epiphany round 14 and vintage settings to make the embellishment. I love Epiphany embellishments I don’t know how I managed without them, it makes perfectly co-0rdinated embellishments quickly and easily every single time 🙂
Finally, the Hello You card, which I know I’m sending to a good friend tomorrow!
Hope you are inspired to try some fabulous sets of your own, using only die cut elements and a couple of little embellishments.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more cool stuff and Ill be doing some sneaky peeks and a competition on Thursday so hurry back
I’d love to hear what you favourite SVG files are if you’ve tried them 🙂
