New Nesties.

I've spent the last couple of days making Wedding cards but can't show them yet as the Wedding isn't until next week and my Blog feed goes straight to facebook where it could be seen by the recipients.

Instead I thought I would show the embellishments I made with my new nesties. I bought the snowflake set of dies and had fun using just 2 colours of paper and a few gold star shaped brads.

I can see i'm going to have fun with colour combinations when I finally get around to using them properly. I'm thinking purple/silver, blue/silver at the moment.

Crafter's Companion #10

This week on Crafter's Companion challenge blog we have another sketch as well as some items to be used.
These are: the colours Red/White/Gold, Ribbon, Gems and Embossing.

I made mine into a square card and used an image of Popcorn Bear along with a paper strip from the Christmas Cd. The main colour of my card is red with mats of red, gold and white. The embossing on the white mat is done with Swiss dots on the Cuttlebug. The ribbon is white spotty organza and the gems are in the corners of the gold mat. A lousy photo i'm afraid but it has been raining most of the day and the light is just awful.
