In the Pink


A really simple but effective card I made on Thursday and sold on my stall on Friday. I used a Darice embossing folder and sanded Core'dinations in bright pink. I tore the edges and attached it to some distressed pink paper and card and added two sparkly butterflies from Poundland. I really like this card and as left the embossing folder out on my desk to remind me to make some more. Normally everything gets put away once a card has been made but I knew out of sight of mind would apply and I would forget to make some more like this.

As you like it Favourite style of embossing (I love wet embossing too but use my embossing folders much more. They are so quick and easy and there is such a wide variety of patterns available. I particularly love using them with sanded Core'dinatoins.)

Off out for breakfast this morning as we are going into Norwich for a few things and I want to look at upgrading my iPhone. Catch you later.
