Best Wishes.....

I am sharing a matching card and gift box today.
Love these papers........gorgeous colours and very pretty floral design! The flowers were cut with some Docrafts X-Cut dies and finished with a button and thread. The banners are Sizzix dies that come in a set with co-ordinating stamps.
The mini pizza box is made from 1 sheet of a4 card and it's the perfect size for a wee's about 4" square.
I am entering the set into the following challenge -
Charisma Cardz #11 - Die-Cuts.....
Thanks for looking xx

Doily and Die....

Hi.........I'm back with a couple of cards I have made using the gorgeous Doily stamp and die from Docrafts.
For the above card I stamped and embossed the doily stamp and then cut it out with the matching die. Quite tricky to line up but worth the effort :) The 'mum' and the scalloped border in pink are also stamps from Docrafts - the vintage range. Finished with some bakers twine and button and a wee tag!

This card uses the doily stamp stamped and embossed straight onto the patterned paper. I used a Silver Pearl embossing powder for a watermark look. It's a very subtle look but very pretty!
I cut the card into a tag shape and added the butterfly from a 'Framelits' set.
Finished with the die-cut 'Mum' (a Docrafts alphabet die) and the sentiment stamped in pink is from Hero Arts.
I am entering my cards into the following challenges -
Allsorts Challenge #196 - For a #2 entry
PaperTakeWeekly - Anything Goes with opt. Mothers Day card or card for special female.
Totally Gorjuss #173 - Anything Goes with Pink.......I am entering the top card :)
Thanks for looking xx
