Card making

As we will be away for a while, and my nephews birthdays both fall during the holidays, i had a play with another Basic Grey card making kit that i picked up from TK Maxx today.


I didn't follow any of the instructions, but just did my own thing with the papers, and came up with some very cute cards.

Once i had finished, i used the scraps, and some of my own stamps to make some cards with the leftovers. This cupcake has been paper pieced, and glossy accents and micro beads added to the top of the cake for decoration.


I think the cards worked out to be around 60p each, so not a bad price overall!

Still not packed, most of the washing is done and we are sort of tidy. Hannah has spent the day giving away the huge crop of plums from the tree in the garden, i still think that most of them will be rotting on the ground when we return.

Happy crafting all, and happy holiday us!
