For Lisa x

This is a card commissioned by the lads in our local pub's dart team so plenty of space for all those signatures needed here!! Bless them they have hearts of  gold for all their testosterone fuelled, beer drinking, blarney !! (Joking boys !! xox)
I've used another of the fabulous Papermania Foldies 6"x6" square cards as the are great for "collection" cards. 
I've used a combination of Papermania Lincoln Linen papers and the pretty bits from its collection and printed sheets of thin printer card and glossy paper with coordinating yellow papers from the Capsule Collection DVD.
From the back
From the front
 I like to make these cards in stages as it would be quite easy to get lost in the 10 sides and make a mess lol!!
So I first spent time time using the Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge to cut the background papers.
I printed some of the Urban Stamps from the DVD and die cut some with Spellbinder label dies and hand cut some of the little shapes. I kept them black to add some definition and distress inked every single edge.
Spellbinder and Marianne D roses as ever .....

This flower is made from a used, inked, tumble dryer sheet
....and some embossing.
I completed all of the card before embellishing with lots of gems, flowers, tiny bows and a little bit of ribbon.

From this .....
...To this.

    1. Hi
      I was messing around with loads of different fabric's with my spellbinder rose dies, nets and nylon fabric's are rubbish and don't cut through well but I wanted something fine/translucenty rather than denim, felt etc - I just happened to see the used tumble dryer sheet while I was washing and playing at the same time - like we do!!- and thought BINGO lol. I used papermania pigment ink and Tim Holtz distress ink, the pigment ink takes a while to dry but it worth the wait !! x
