How is your week going? Somehow my afternoons are becoming very busy and not much crafting is happening that isn't what I expected to happen. Tomorrow we are off to see Mamma Mia at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton I am very excited.
I was thrilled when I received the free gift with Simply Cards and Papercraft this month. There is an embossing folder, some dies and some stamps. Here is the card I made.
The brick paper is some textured white paper from my stash that was inked with Distress Ink. The door and the frame were created with the embossing folder. I embossed it in white and cut out the whole frame and then I embossed it in black and cut out the door. I did a black door as our daughter's new house has a black door. The knocker and the letter box were stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a silver powder.
The wreath was made with the dies that came with the set. I did have a lot of fun sticking the berries on.
The lamp was stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with a copper powder.
The urn and the foliage were stamped and cut out by hand.
Here you can see me and my husband on the front row of the audience watching Sue Wilson at Ally Pally last weekend. Yes we were on telly again. It was wonderful watching Sue demonstrate.
I was rather pleased with how this card turned out. All I added apart from card was a sentiment cut with some Britannia dies.
I would like to enter Challenge 72 at Creative Craft Cottage and Challenge 29 at A Snowflakes Promise.
I hope enjoy the rest of the week.
