The latest genius idea from Craftwork Cards is 8 x 8 sheets of embossed frames, all nesting inside each other, pop out and use whichever size you want. For this card, I took the very largest frame, ran double tape around the edges and backed it with one of the new 'pretty little prints' papers....they are actually the weight of a light cardstock, which is why I was able to use them for this card, and as always, all the colours blend perfectly. I realised afterwards that this particular embossed card could double for Christmas, but hey, it looks good with flowers as well....
I added a spray of flowers and leaves, punched from two of the co-ordinating papers, and added a bit of bling................
Here's what the card looks like opened - pretty on the back as well as the front! I cut the smaller frame in half, as I can find plenty of uses for a half frame! I am working on more cards with this kit, so watch this space
If you are at CHA (lucky things) be sure to pop and see Richard, Sue and Julie on the Craftwork Cards stand. I hear it looks very pretty!
Disaster has struck! My Gypsy has died. I tried to connect it to my Cricut, and the little connector just wasn't there, a shake and a peer showed it rattling about inside the machine. It really is a bit of a blow for me, I use the Cricut a lot, quite often just for cutting cards, borders, scalloped rectangles etc, and about 90% of my cartridges are back in the USA. Luckily I bought about a dozen of my newest ones home with me, but it's irritating. I guess a loooong phone call to Cricut support will be the next thing to cope with.
The sun shone today. Breaking news - it was out for about an hour, unfortunately I was tied up (not in a 50 shades of grey way you understand, just busy) and missed it. By the time I went to Sainsburys it was gone, never to reappear - well, not today anyway
Sigh, tomorrow is another day. See you then x
