and glued them onto the label, slightly off-setting them.

Christmas...

As there seem to be a few Christmas cards appearing on various blogs that I follow,

I added Glimmer Dust to the sky, which you can't see very well from the photos.

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

card remained un-embossed.

it gives by making the base card darker.
