Embossed flowers....





I've been messing around with those border embossing folders again, sorry about the rather badly cropped photo - I was so focused on getting the embossing to show clearly that I didn't notice that I had cut the top of the card out completely, still, you get the gist......



Candi Mini's - Hot Tropics


and here is what else I have been doing today, these new flower stamps are by Craftwork Cards, and are designed to take the card candi - I am sure everyone who comes here regularly know what candi is, but just in case, they are clever little domed discs of cardstock in every colour and pattern you could possible want, they take the place of brads, much easier, and very very reasonably priced so you save pennies as well as time


 I'll show you the card I made when I finish it tomorrow...

Has spring sprung in your little corner of the world yet? Here in the UK it remains a little bit on the chilly side, bright sunshine but cold enough for a couple of hail storms! Last week I saw a desperate sight, a guy of advancing years wearing rather short shorts (which his wife should have smuggled out of his wardrobe years ago), sandals and that great fashion faux pas, beloved of some Brits - grey socks. Having a keen sense of the ridiculous, I did have a secret little smile at the stupidity of his appearance, and I must admit, when it suddenly started to hail, I laughed out loud....it was so funny to see his wife trailing behind him, trying to pretend she wasn't with him....ah, men!

  5. Loving your card and your embossed panels are beautiful. I have these, maybe I should play with mine instead of neglecting them as well. Great colour combo. Hugs Christine x

  7. Great idea for using card candi - look forward to seeing your finished card. Pretty card with the border embossing folder, I have a few of them that haven't seen daylight for years so I think I may get them out and have a play. Pat x

  8. The embossed flowers are beautiful. I have several of these boarders and to be honest have never tried them. But thanks to the inspiration I am getting from you, I think I'll give it a go!

  9. Great card. I always pass my border embossing folders up when crafting but this has encouraged me to give them a second chance. TFS.

  11. I love the embossed look! So simple, yet so elegant.
    Can't wait to see how that card looks once it's done
    I'm in Western New York State, not far from Niagara Falls and our weather is gorgeous, sunny, blue skies and nice warm temps. Here in our area, they young guys wear shorts whenever there isn't snow on the ground, so your crazily dressed man would fit in just fine here. Not saying he would look any better, but wouldn't be out of place so much.
    I saw a man the other day with a tee shirt and shorts on, but the shorts, I swear were a pair of boxers! Looked like he just forgot to put his pants on! It was NOT a pretty sight! No accounting for what people will wear.

  12. Great card Enfys - love the colours. I bought border embossing folders when Cuttlebug first brought them out and used them a lot...for some reason though, they haven't seen the light of day for quite a while - oops!
