Around The World

Good Morning All!
Here's my DT inspiration card for this months challenge at 

The theme this month is Around The World & we're sponsored by the wonderful
Bugaboo Digi Stamps
who have provided the DT with some images to play with!
I've used AKVNATbabyjesus to make my Across The Miles Christmas card

I send lot's of Christmas cards to many different countries & I
like to design something that isn't too weighty for postage purposes.
I made an A6 Kraft base & printed the sentiment directly on to it. 
Next I scored some lines for a bit of interest.
My image was printed on to Kraft & coloured  with pencils,
 then cut out with a spellbinders ornate oval die! 
I used some gilding wax on the edges to give it some definition & popped up 
on some foam tape for a little dimension!
Finally, I added a little bit of button twine which I had also rubbed with a bit 
of the gilding wax & tied in a simple knot!

I hope you like my little card!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Bloomin' Birthday

Hi all, I have a card to share today!
This one is made using a decoupage sheet from the 
Grumps range over at La Pashe 

Time For Wine
The card base is 8x8".
The papers are from The Best Of La Pashe 2014 CD rom.
I used plain brown paper as a matt & distressed everything with a pair of 
serrated scissors. I stained the edges of the image with coffee & added
coffee cup & wine glass rings to distress further.
The sentiment was part of the decoupage sheet too.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you like my card!
