Hi everyone. Hope you are well and have had a lovely weekend (despite the rain).
I am sharing two cards with you today. The first was made for my mum for Mother's Day, and features the new Honeycomb embossing folder. Wow, this really does have lots of possibilities.
First of all, I ran a piece of white card through my Cuttlebug in the embossing folder and stuck it to the front of a card. Then I cut up some scraps of the Tea for Two DSP and put them inside the folder and put it through the Cuttlebug - this gave me a guide to cutting out the hexagons and getting them the right size. I stuck them down in a random pattern.
I then stuck a piece of Baja Breeze pleated satin ribbon across the middle of the card, followed by a piece of baker's twine (I borrowed that idea from Jane, at Eden's Tree - check out her blog here ).
The sentiment is from Notable Alphabet, stamped in black onto a piece of Tea for Two.
The second card is very similar (because I'm in love with it!!), and was for Jane (mentioned above), whose birthday was earlier in the week.
I used her favourite papers, Spice Cake, and teamed them with Pear Pizzazz pleated ribbon and brown baker's twine. The sentiment is from the Hostess set, Stacks of Wishes, stamped in Early Espresso ink and mounted on the same colour card.
Jane has set up a card swap group and I received my first card this week - it's stunning and I will share it with you soon, as well as the card I made. Jane received lots of handmade birthday cards this year - one from every member of the swap group - keep looking at her blog, as she is going to post them soon.
I've noticed that my three photos differ in quality - the first is a scan, the second I took and the third was taken my Mark, I'll let you make your mind up which one is the best!
