Fiskarettes DT Cards

Happy Saturday!

I'm super behind on blogging - life just gets in the way sometimes :) I've a couple of cards for the Fiskarettes DT to share today. 

The first is a card that was on the Fiskarettes UK page yesterday for Fellas Friday using the Trimcraft Blue Skies papers. I love that the papers are in a particular colour-way but have so many differing designs in the pack. 

I've matt and layered the papers with silver card stock and used the pale blue frame and buttons from the same Blue Skies range. There are a lot of co-ordinating embellishments in the range including the sentiments which I've used. 

Finally, I added twine, Fiskars eyelets and embossed and distressed a section of the card to add further texture. 

The second card was featured on Fiskarettes UK Scraps Saturday last week. I used glittered card scraps although you can't see the glitter very well on the photo. I didn't want to ruin the pattern I'd created by putting a sentiment on top, so I made a tab on the side that I stamped. Both the butterflies and circles are punched with Fiskars punches. 

I hope you enjoy your weekend, it's supposed to be wonderful weather! We're having a BBQ later. 

Thank you for looking and any comments are much appreciated.
