FWF - A card and tag.

Another Friday so another Unity Friends With Flair!! I loooooove Fridays!!!

This week I've played with the June store kit....how fabulous is this?!

I challenged myself to make a card and a tag using just one sheet of A4 card and one sheet of 8" x 8" paper (although I did use a small amount of another one!).

Card first:



This card is 5" square. I stamped the frame stamp using chalk ink on to a piece of lightly patterned green paper before cutting it out and mounting on cardstock. I then stamped the quote using Versamark ink and embossing with white embossing powder. The organza flowers were handmade by cutting organza circles and then heating to shape them. I used vintage glass buttons in the centres.

Materials used: Papermill cardstock, Papermania papers, Unity stamps, Versamagic chalk ink, Versamark ink, white embossing powder, paper rose, organza, cotton lace, vintage glass buttons.

And here's the tag:





I stamped the bird and sentiment from the June kit using Ranger Distress ink before cutting them out. The edges of the tag were inked with the same distress ink and I made another organza flower.

Materials used: Papermill card, Papermania paper, Unity stamps, Ranger distress inks, cotton lace, organza, Fancy Pants ribbon, Dovecraft pearl brad, vintage glass button.
