Card Swap

My second card was made using the eCraft Dolls and Pets sd card. What a lot of fun these are. Took me back to my childhood days of paper dolls. 
I also added a touch of red to this card for a bit of bling and added a Spellbinders tag.

My swap partner is a passionate cat lover so the eCraft Dolls and Pets sd card provided the perfect image for this card.

Card Swap

We have just completed our August swap over at Craft Mad
Our theme this week was black and white, my favourite colour combo. I doubled up in this swap so I had two partners this month.
This is my first card, I was given some beautiful new dies for my birthday so I wanted to try them all. I managed to include 3 Spellbinders and a Martha Stewart punch on this card. I also added  a touch of green which was a bit outside the rules :)

Laser Cut Card Fronts

Another two laser cut cards today


I have added a layer of black bazzill under the laser cut card front and a self adhesive felt image to the centre. I covered the existing hearts with punched hearts and then some rhinestones around the edges and gold stickers to the corners. I then faux stitched the pattern around the edge of the card front.


I loved the laser cut on the front of this card. I added a Spellbinders Fleur de lis die cut  and a Studio Light 3d image to the centre. The background is red bazzill.
