Love birds

Very simple cards made from recycled fronts of wedding invitation and order of service, inserting some love birds cut from place setting cards, mounted on to some gold card. The 7 x 5 card blank is gold.

The landscape shaped one wasn't that shape originally, but I used a blank and cut round it.

These are for:

Crafting Musketeers October: Christmas in October

I am thrilled to have joined the team at Crafting Musketeers and this is my first design card - this is for the Crafting Musketeers 6: Christmas in October. Please click on the link and see the wonderful crafting of the rest of the team and, hopefully, join in the challenge. This is being sponsored by Bridlington Stationers - this is what you could win:

The image on the upright of my side step card is Janet Klein's Stampotique inked with versafine black and heat embossed with detail black powder, coloured with spectrum noirs. The tartan paper is Basic Grey and the striped paper is HOTP. I've had the big poinsettia for ages, not a clue where it originally came from. The red and cream rippled snowflakes were from Hobbycraft. The JOY and NOEL 3D stickers are My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas.
