 Hi... thanks for popping by
Today's 'give away' card is a very pretty 7" square card with thin mat and layers of pale blue and dark blue card stock.  I've used 2 dies from SW's collection for Creative Expressions, adhering the 'pointed' ones to each corner then filling in the spaces with the remaining scalloped edge one.
I've used a Memory Box Die for the centre and cut this once in the 2 blue cards and 1 in white card.  I stamped the sentiment onto the pale blue card then off set the 3 layers prior to adhering to the card
If you would like to give this card a new home leave me a comment and a name will be picked at random on Monday morning and announced here

It's not a problem if you live over sea as I'm happy to post to you
Have a great weekend
Thank you for visiting my blog...

Hi... thanks for popping by

I made this card for a relative's birthday, who is an avid knitter.
It's a 6" square white card base and I added a thin pink mat (pink card from my stash).  I cut a smaller piece of white foundation card by CE and embossed it using the Nordic Tiles EF by SW for CE and adhered to the pink card leaving a narrow border.
The ball of wool and knitting needles come as one stamp by Woodware.  I stamped the image with Clear Perfect Medium Stamp Pad, sprinkled WOW Embossing Powder in Princess Pink over the wool and heat set it.  I then very lightly sprinkled a few colours of the Pixie Powders by CE and spritz the image.  I used a water colour pencil to colour the needles then cut out the whole image, added mounting foam to the back and adhered to the card.  From my stash I added a few sequins and added a Birthday Wishes sentiment by CE

Hi... thanks for popping by

I thought I'd show you just how, by adding a little extra light to the same card, can make a huge difference!

The top one is too dark and the bottom too bright LOL!  The colour of the card is actually a very pretty pink

Let me know which you prefer

Thank you for visiting

I always look forward to reading your comments...
