Final Tunnel card for the week ........... Honestly !!!



Hi
As you know I have had a thing for making tunnel cards well here is my final ome for the week ...honestly !! .It has been sentto my friend Rozzy for her birthday ,she has seen it already so its safe to blog it..... I used papers from a free pack I had from a mag...The flowers ,leaves and
gem centre are from mulberry crafts. The paper bow and gemstone centre are from wild orchids.The sentiment stamp is also a magazine free bee .The flower in the centre is a new technique I saw on pinterest and it was created using 2 nestability circles one smaller than the other which I sandwiched together using 3 foam pads to give it height .Then I just added stamped and punched flowers I made using a stampin up punch and stamp set. I glued them on with hot glue as it was to be posted .I used circle and scalloped circle nesties to create the tunnel apertures and frame around the front aperture.

A CAS VALENTINE CARD

Hi

Hi All

It is my turn to give some inspiration over at the  CraftDee-Bowz challenge today ....The theme for this month is "Valentine " ....Instead of my favourite style of card  [fussy and girly ] I decided to challenge myself to make a more clean and simple  Valentine card..  still using traditional heart embellishments ..I think it is nice to try something that takes you out of your comfort zone now and again  and Clean and Simple style is always a challenge for me !!.
I used an 8x8 plain square white card base. I matted a piece of red cardstock on top leaving a small border around it. The white layer of cardstock was scored across at 1cm intervals vertically and horizontally to make a grid effect. I used scalloped square dies to make the red mats to sit each heart on. The hearts were made using various dies and  I made each heart embellishment slightly different to add  a bit more  interest. The two white hearts feature a  cute little heart charm and a love stamp that were included in my DT pack this month .The sentiment was computer generated and I finished the design using the  pretty checked ribbon  also from my DT pack. I made a four looped bow adding a pearl buckle slider which was very easy to make using my Fabulous CraftDee-Bowz bow maker.
