Some of those "Goodies" ...

Hi Everybody,

Here are a couple of cards made using some of the GNPE "Goodies" that I bought.

Both of them have been made the same way using the Hinged Card Style

I find using this method, which gives me the fold at the top,  allows me to use more of the card in the portrait orientation.

So all I have done is double embossed the background with the "Wow" embossing powders.

Once the heat embossing is done I have dry embossed it in the Regency Swirls embossing folder from Crafters Companion .

I wrapped the ribbon around the panel and then added it to the front.

The sentiment has been stamped and heat embossed in silver and added with foam tape to the card using   Fancy Tags Three
 But the centres of the bows have been filled with the gorgeous Diamante and Pearl embellishments that where a bargain buy.

They where once a bracelet from Primark and they had eight of these lovely sparkly bits in them

They cost me £3.00  but worked out at just 37 pence for each one and so I don't mind adding them  to a card.

The sentiment ifs from the JustRite Large Fancy Sentiments stamp set.
I have used the Letterpress technique with the embossing powders on both of these cards and I am happy with the simple look that they have.

I have a really good "Give Away" going live this weekend and you are going to love what is on offer.

So pop back on Saturday and add your name for the chance to win some beautiful  flowers from
