Simply Cards & Papercraft 173 - Butterfly Dreams

Hi Everybody,

The gift that is free with SC&P 173 this month is perfect for adding detail to any of your cards and I have had such a lot of fun playing with it.

I am more than happy with all the cards I created and I kept the colours bright and vibrant.

It will make both male and female cards ... depending on the way you dress it, but as usual I enjoy making the girly ones the most.

The embossing folder is just the right size for A2 cards and I have used it to Letterpress several of my designs with really good results

The flowers in the die set are not big but they are really pretty and you can colour them anyway you wish, or simply cut them from Coloured card


The video will show you how to get another 2 fer 1 card by thinking about placement before you die cut

So I hope you have a cuppa and the biscuits ready while you relax and view




More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
