Cool down ...


... on a hot summer day. I recently took part in a postcard swap on the Bubblyfunk Forum - the theme was 'summer'. I added script to a digital image, printed out and added quickie pen glue and lots of different Art Institute glitters.


I'm entering this into the following challenges:

A royal blue anniversary


I was asked by a friend to make a card for him to give to his wife on their anniversary and he requested that I used royal blue on the card.

I used three different embossing folders with my eBosser with some royal blue mirror card. I used part of an eBosser A4 embossing folder (which is actually designed to make a three fold DL card. The front step panel was embossed with a border folder by Design Objectives. The two other steps have been decorated with panels cut from the mirror card with a Craft Concepts folder called 'budding vine'. I cut the 'To someone Special' panel to fit between the paws of the bear.

The Forever Friends 3D stickers came from their Black & Gold collection.
