2 Challenge Cards Today

First picture is the outside of a gatefold card for a Gorjuss Girls challenge over on the Docrafts site. There are lots of challenges hosted by members of the forum and a great selection of themes/styles. I used those fab papers again from My Minds Eye which were a freebie with Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine a few issues ago.
I decorated the inside of the card to match, the stamp was yet another freebie, a subscription gift from Craft Stamper Mag (quiet some time ago). I coloured in with promarkers and paper pieced the dress. Paper piecing is one of my favourite techniques and helps if you find colouring large areas tricky (like me). Lots of gems in the centre of the flowers and my flourish punch finished off the design. The card is a mini card at only 10.5 cm square but very cute all the same!

My next challenge was again on Docrafts for a black, white and silver floral card. You could not use ribbon, so I used my Stampin Up eyelet border punch and some black and white paper for the bottom of the card. My Stampin up oval punches and matching stamp set were used for the greeting. This card took very little time to make, one of those designs that just came together and I am very pleased with the result. I finished it with stickles and black glitter.

The stamp is a well loved favourite from Stampendous.

Thanks for looking
