Waiting


I just had to buy the latest Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine when I saw the free gift of an embossing folder and dog and cat stamps. I am a cat person though we don't have one any more I do love them. I kno these stamps are going to be very useful for making cards to sell.

I embossed the window and backed it with flowery paper to represent wallpaper. The papers are LOTV Sunny Side Up. I used foam pads on the stamped dog. The stitched square and jumbo ric rac dies are MFT and I added some washi tape.

Such a cool card Marianne, I'll be on the look out when the magazine gets to Australia. The stamps and embossing folder look like they'll be so good for different cards, perfect for a "missing you" or "thinking of you" card : )

I have these too Marianne, not had chance to use them yet..
Your card is fab, great idea with the wallpaper too. I'm sure you will sell lots of these

I think I'm going to have to invest in this! Magazine cover gifts seem to have improved a lot over the last couple of years, many of my favourite stamps, dies and embossing folders have come from them.
