Summer & Birds themed cards

Over on the docrafts members gallery page a small group of us have got together and we regularly set a number of different challenges just for fun.  I'm sharing a couple of cards I have made recently - one with a vibrant feel and the other soft and subtle.
  • Firstly for a Sketch Challenge Summer theme - used floral pattered paper, stamped/embossed sunglasses on a shaving foam background, embellished with punched flowers, “Have a Beautiful day” sentiment.  This card just didn’t want to come together nicely and to cap it all I broke the little flower punch in the process ... oh dear!
I've used - 5x6 card blank
Patterned paper & sentiment from different mags
Unbranded stitched rectangle dies
Xcut Tags & Bookplates die
Craft Stamper glasses cover mount stamp

  • Secondly for a Clean and Simple Challenge Birds theme - decided to use Birds of a Feather embossing folder & stamps from a magazine.  Patterned paper was one side of a printed sentiment insert from an old kit, the sentiment side I’ve die cut and will probably use inside.  Purple matt was cut from a pearlescent envelope from the same kit.

I've used - Lilac coloured A6 card blank
Birds of a Feather EF & stamp set from a magazine
Silver EP

  1. Not sure if first comment took as internet keeps dropping out. 2 wonderful cards, love the retro feel of the first one and brilliant layout, shame about the punch. The second one is stylish. Emmax
