Friday 17 April 2015


Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
I managed the grand total of one card yesterday so fingers crossed for a more productive day today.
I do have the one card i made to share though and a very different fold too, thanks to a fab Presscut die i brought when i picked up my new bigshot.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
1.Creative Craft Cottage Challenge - Challenge 37 - Use diecuts
2.Sweet Stampin Challenge - Childrens cards
3.Fantasty Stampers Challenge - Challenge 34 - CAS
4.The Paper Shelter Challenge - Challenge 199 - For the boys
5.Fab N Funky Challenge - Challenge 255 - Masculine
7.MAWWT Challenge - Anything but a square card

Products used are:
White pearl linen card
Paper Cellar papers
Presscut scalloped semi circle die
Faux stitching
Woodware Sneakers stamp
Woodware Graffiti stamp

A close up of the paper pieced sneakers.

A sideways view.

And a pic to show the fold better, this Presscut die cuts it all out in one so all you have to do is fold.
I would use an heavier card stock next time though.
Isn`t it fab and unusual??
Thanks so much for popping by.
Lotsa Hugs
