Cards from Brenda and Jenny

These ladies have created these lovely cards using a variety of techniques to give us some wonderful ideas.

I find making cards for men the hardest to put together and especially if they don’t have a hobby that you can use as a theme. This card with a car on would suit any guy as you can almost gurarantee they drive a car. It will also bring back some great memories if you use a car design from yesteryear. Thank you for this great idea Jenny.

3D Owls and Flowers

It feels like cheating when you make up these sets. They are so simple to put together. They come individually wrapped with each pack containing 3 pieces to make up your 3D effect. Already die cut and glittered all you need is some foam squares and you are away. One minute – actually it is probably even less and you have the embellishment put together ready to go on your card, scrapbook page or other paper project. The longest part of making these embellishments up, is opening the packaging.

The products I used are listed below the photos (ie at the bottom of this post).

3D Flower Pack – 10 different designs per pack – each design individually wrapped.

 

  So some card ideas.I cheated a little here as well. Opened a pack of pre made card blanks and added some of the owls and flowers to some of these. Very handy for a card in a hurry. 

 

 

 

 

 

 So just a taste!!
