Affection Collection

Due to the snowy weather over the last couple of weeks I had to cancel  a couple of card classes. Fortunately the snow has now disappeared and the classes were rescheduled to this week.

These are the cards we made:-

For the first two cards we used the Affection Collection stamp set from the Autumn/Winter seasonal mini catalogue which is due to end tomorrow,  Thursday 31st January

Colour combination is pink pirouette,  crumb cake and whisper white. 

We used the delicate design folders at the top and bottom of the pink card to create a beautiful border. Two pieces of card, one in pink and the other in white were cut using the hearts collection framelits, the white one was stamped with the Love in crumb cake.

Paper piercing tool and essentials paper piercing pack was used to create the holes. All edges were sponged with crumb cake

The next card uses crumb cake and whisper white colours.  The Delicate doilies sizzlits were used to die cut a crumb cake doily, a 2 1/2 inch circle was stamped and punched and layered on top with a sentiment

The third card is ideal to send to those we love as a Valentine Card and uses a colour combination of white, black and red.

 The heart was cut out of the centre with the hearts collection framelits and a piece of patterned designer series paper placed on the inside of the card so it can be seen through the hole.

The sentiment was stamped from the My Little Valentine stamp set which unfortunately can no longer be purchased.
