Female Birthday Card

Today, I have a birthday card to share with you that I recently made for a friend.
This is the first time I have used the embossing folder which was one of my purchases
at the Ally Pally craft show in April. It's so pretty and is one I think I'll be using a lot.

I started by first cutting the circular die from the base card, and stamping the sentiment,
which is two from a set. Then using two dies taped together I made the lilac frame.
Next I placed them all together and taped them back into the aperture, added
the bird and the flowers.
The single bird has been snipped from a branch of five birds.

The products I have used are:-
Stitched semi circle - Unbranded die from eBay
Sentiment stamps - Unbranded stamps from eBay
Bird - Unbranded die from eBay
Leanne Creatif Embossing Folder - Little Flowers
Woodware punch - Fern
Xcut Punch - Small Daisy

An Anniversary Card

Today, I am sharing a Wedding Anniversary card I've made for some good friends
and neighbours from where we used to live who are celebrating their anniversary today.
I've just realised I seem to have had a run of blue and white cards this week!

With the white piece of card (cut with the smaller label die), I left the card in the die and ran it through my machine using the heart embossing folder, so that the edge of the
card remained un-embossed.

Docrafts - Xcut Embossing Folders - Hearts
Couture Creations A4 Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
Birds - Unbranded die from eBay
