Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tapis Builder Card & Envelope

 Hi Everybody,

Here is a new video featuring the Tapis Builder Die Set and another way to use them.

I have also created an envelope for the card from the 5x7 Card & Box die set that would be sturdy enough to send through the post if needed.

I apologise for the sound of my voice on the video but I have an awful cough at present that is keeping me awake at nights.

Cough medicines don't seem to make any difference and it is much worse when I lie down. And I cannot for the life of me sleep sitting up. Ruby gets off the bed in disgust when I start coughing as I keep her awake too. 

Any way here is the video and I hope you enjoy it all the same.

I have used some gold card that I got from Craft Stash for the card envelope and the decoration on the card front. The champagne coloured card is from Tonic and it was with a kit that was on sale years ago.

The finished result is very pretty and it could be for any occasion that you needed. And you could always make up a batch of envelopes ready to send whenever you make this flat type of card.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. I’m sorry you are not feeling good and not sleeping well. I hope you see a doctor if it continues.

    I have to admit that I wasn’t liking the Tapis bits when you were adding them to the card in a random pattern. It seemed odd to me but as you continued to add the other elements, I began to change my mind. When the card was finished I really loved it! In the future, I will wait until a card is finished because you just never know. I learned a valuable lesson about adding layers and how important it is to wait for the finished product.
