The Special Ones - Daring Cardmakers DT


This week on the Daring Cardmakers it's all about the special cards - the ones for the people who mean a lot to you.

I've used a preloved Lawn Fawn stamp and die set that I recently bought.  There are many companies whose products I adore but I tend to wait until I can get used products or wait for the sale!  I made two cards one for a husband and the other for a wife.

I made them at the same time so you can see I used the negative from the die cut for the aperture on the other card.

For the first card I die cut a cross stitched shape which resembles a snow globe.  I added my stamped, coloured and die cut owl together with the sentiment from the same set which I stamped in a die cut stitched heart.  I stamped some hearts along the bottom to add a little more interest.

The second card is my favourite of the two.  I'm rather partial to hot pink and the aperture with the snowflakes and gems makes a cute background .  I added a little washi to this one.

I hope you'll join in with the challenge and you'll find more inspiration HERE.

I apologise for not being to comment on your blogs at the moment.  I'm taking a break from blogging until life gets a little less complicated.  I will definitely be back though.

Enjoy your weekend,

Sorry I've been AWOL, I'm trying to catch up with my blog visiting. Your cards are fabulous Shabneez, very clever to use the aperture left by the die cut. Hope things are getting a little less stressful for you.
Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Creative 2018. xx
